We are looking for energetic volunteers to help with daily chores at Safe Harbor Stables located in Redmond. As a barn volunteer, you will help feed and water the horses, clean the horses' stalls and paddocks, clean grain pans, and sweep the barn aisles. You will also have an opportunity to provide much needed love and affection to the SAFE rescue horses. We have two primary chore shifts every day of the week: 9 am to noon and 4 pm to 7 pm. You must be 16 or older to volunteer at SAFE. We do accept volunteers age 13-15 if an adult is willing to volunteer with the youth. Orientation is required for all barn volunteers. Orientations are scheduled regularly each month. Familiarity with horses is helpful but not required.
SAFE is considered an essential operation and new volunteers are welcome. It is easy to social distance on an 11 acre farm! Note that masks are required.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Save A Forgotten Equine SAFE
10407 192nd Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98053, US
Our mission: To rescue, rehabilitate, and retrain horses facing neglect or abuse and provide them with the best opportunity for a permanent home and a lifetime of safety.
SAFE is deeply committed to its rescued horses. We have extensive experience in equine rehabilitation and have successfully brought many neglected horses back from the brink of starvation. All of our horses are provided with routine vet care, dental care, vaccinations, and farrier care. Once a horse has been successfully rehabilitated, we carefully evaluate them to discover their strengths and suitabilities, and we provide many of these horses with professional training to help ensure them a safe and productive future. While at SAFE, horses receive a lot of personal attention and handling. Our rideable horses are worked on a regular basis by our on-staff trainer and by qualified volunteers under her supervision.
Once a horse is ready for a permanent home, SAFE undertakes a rigorous screening process to find the ideal placement. We carefully review applications, check references, and conduct site visits, with the goal of finding a long-term home that will benefit both horse and adopter. After a horse is placed into its forever home, annual follow-up visits are conducted to ensure the animal’s continued well-being and SAFE will take a horse back if its adopter can’t continue to care for it.
