What you need to know about Volunteering...

Volunteering at Serenity Horse Haven can be a rewarding experience. By volunteering, you help us care and provide for the horses in our care.

Here are some things you need to know before submitting your volunteer application and getting your volunteer T-shirt:

You will also see horses hurt and in pain, dealing with their injuries, or trying to recover from abuse. These are normal that will happen.
