How You Can Help

Volunteer with SAFE

What’s it like to volunteer with SAFE? Read what our volunteers have to say about their experiences!

Most of the SAFE horses reside at our main facility in Monroe WA. SAFE volunteers perform various duties at the farm including feeding, stall and paddock cleaning, filling water buckets, grooming, turnout, and other tasks that need to be completed on a daily basis. For the most part, we do not offer riding opportunities for volunteers, as the majority of our horses are special needs horses which are unsuitable for amateur riders.

In addition to chores, we often need help with processing adoption applications, checking references and doing site visits/follow-up visits. We also have a few events throughout the year which need the assistance of volunteers. The SAFE Benefit Horse Show held every August will need many volunteers, both on the day of the show and during the planning process. And SAFE can always use help with its fundraising efforts.

Another great way to help SAFE is to become a Foster Home for a horse. To learn more about the Foster Care program, please click here.
