Facts about Amirah

  • Breed: Arabian
  • Color: Chestnut/Sorrel
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 070
This 13 yr. old Arabian mare was rescued on a very cold, frigid winter day in February 2011. She was so emaciated that after her rescue she went down in her stall and days later went down again. She only weighed 468 lbs. and the pressure wound on her hip had burst open. Once at the PER facility, volunteers worked to provide proper food, medicine and love. She has regained her strength, health and renewed confidence in humans to become this beautiful, healthy horse. Finding a suitable, loving, forever home for Amirah (which means Little Princess) is the next step in her long journey and a happy ending. Amirah is 14.1 hands and 13 years old. She has been ridden, but is green. Adoption fee is $200.00.

About Panhandle Equine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Panhandle Equine Rescue, Inc. (PER) was founded by a small group of concerned citizens and became incorporated on February 1, 2005 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Shortly thereafter, PER became authorized by the court of Escambia County, Florida to investigate reports of equines in trouble. Our Mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and provide adoption services for abused, neglected and abandoned equines.

PER relies on private and public donations, grants and fundraising. Our volunteers write grants, hold fundraisers and membership drives to raise the funds needed to rescue these gentle giants.

Due to poor economic times, limited donations are coming in while PER is still receiving more reports of equines in trouble. Equines previously adopted or fostered are being returned due to financial hardship of their sponsors. Funding and recruiting volunteers are critical for PER's program to continue.
