Formerly Neglected Horse Finds a Forever Home
An 11-year-old quarter horse named Patrick became Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch’s newest resident. Patrick was rescued after being severely neglected.
Patrick was on the brink of starvation and dehydrated when he was seized by San Antonio Animal Control on July 17, 2013. He was kept with San Antonio Animal Control for two and a half months where he slowly gained weight, was gelded, vaccinated and treated before arriving at the ranch in Murchison, Texas.
Like all new arrivals, Patrick will go through a two week quarantine process before being released to roam free with the large herd. Patrick will never experience neglect again, and will live the remainder of his life freely roaming 1,310 acres with the 500 other equine residents at the ranch.
Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is operated by The Fund for Animals, an affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States. It is the nation’s largest and most diverse animal sanctuary, home to more than 1,000 formerly abused, abandoned and neglected animals who are now living a life of peace and safety.
