About the Farm
How We Got Started
Our founder, Vivian Goldbloom, is very passionate about not only the welfare of domestic animals but equine and farm animals as well. Along this rescue journey, we encountered the harsh truth that horses are sold to kill buyers in Mexico and Canada for slaughter. We realized there was a great need to save these at-risk animals and she decided to offer them a place to live where they will be safe, cared for, and happy for the rest of their lives.
Who We Are
Vivian had always envisioned this sanctuary on Vashon, but it took years to find just the right location. Once the property was purchased, it took about three years of planning and construction to create a place where these animals would have a chance to live life surrounded by beautiful scenery, state-of-the-art buildings, and a group of loving, dedicated staff members to look after them every day, 365 days a year. They receive top medical care and most importantly, they get to be horses. Our staff's most important job is to ensure that each individual animal's needs are met, and that they receive a lot of love. We do not ride our rescue horses, but all animals at the sanctuary receive plenty of physical and mental stimulation. There are lots of large fields for them to run and graze. Stalls have runs so the animals can always enjoy fresh air.
