Amaretto came into our rescue program on July 4, 2010. Amaretto came from the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division along with 9 other Thoroughbred's that were seized, from the owner/trainer, for Animal Cruelty.

Amaretto is a Beautiful, Bay, Filly. She is estimated to be 2 years of age. Amaretto is extremely emaciated with a body score of a 1. She is super sweet and loves attention. This sweet girl will need some dental work and immediate hoof care. She has a small hernia that will need repaired once she puts on a suitable amount of weight. We will update as she progresses. Please consider making a donation towards Amaretto's Rehabilitation.
