The journey to rescue and sanctuary began for ten day old Jasper and his mother Jenna after they came to the attention of Turning Pointe Donkey Rescue. Spotted in the Bowie Feed lot it soon became apparent that any attempt to transport the pair a significant distance would certainly result in Jasper’s death. Turning Pointe and The Ark Watch Foundation collaborated to bail Jenna and Jasper from the kill pen and transported them to Reata Equine Hospital for medical treatment. The pair was met by the vet team that immediately determined that Jenna’s bloodwork indicated signs of stress from her trip through auction and kill pen with a very young baby in tow. It was also revealed that both donkeys had pneumonia. Luckily, both responded well and within a few weeks vaccines, deworming treatments, hoof trims, and more were slowly introduced and soon they were ready to leave their temporary homes at the vet clinic. Today, Jasper enjoys playing “chase” and “tag” with his friend Pequito while Jenna keeps a close eye on her baby boy. The Long Ears Barn at the Sanctuary is their forever home.
