Trixie and Manny are a bonded pair of miniature donkeys. We rescued them from a kill pen in North Carolina. The kill pen was suddenly shut down due to owners not complying with state regulations. The state wouldn't release the animals so our pair of new rescues, Trixie and Manny, were stuck there living in a pen full of trash. We were beside ourselves here at TPDR. We wanting to get them out of there and get them veterinary attention as soon as possible. Once the pair was released from the kill pen a very kind man transported the pair to Michigan at the rescue.They both are very sweet and gentle but shy. They just need time to warm up to you. The pair is ready to find their forever home!!

Jade

 

Stretch and Eddie

 

Meet Jade!

Yes, we know what you're thinking, that donkey is oddly horse-like... Well, TPDR couldn't leave this horse behind at the kill pen and now this beautiful filly is waiting for her forever home. We suspect that she is about a year old and will be a pony when she's full grown. She is such a sweet and spunky ball of energy. She is halter broke. Jades ready for adoption!

 

UPDATE 9/12/17: Jade is now in an amazing foster home for training! We are very proud of this horse. 

 

Stretch and Eddie are a pair of very sweet, silly, and charismatic mammoth geldings.

The boys have good ground manners and love attention!

These boys are ready for their forever home! 

Hercules

 

Maymee

 

 

Meet Hercules! Hercules was rescued from a feedlot by a very nice man. But when he had to pack up and move out of state in 24 hours for work, He called us and we could not say no. Hercules had bad hooves, but that was an easy fix. The main problem we had to address was that Hercules was a jack so gelding him was a priority. Once gelded we started to realize how sweet this big boy really is! He is residing with Chester, Billy, Nate, and Hasta Luego. He is such a happy go lucky guy!  Very sweet and calm! We believe Hercules to still be quite young. We are working on his ground manners. He is very calm but, sometimes it takes him a few minutes to process the situation. Which is ok with us. We have time! Herc really deserves a great home!

Meet Zeus! Zeus was rescued from a feedlot by a very nice man. But when he had to pack up and move out of state in 24 hours for work, He called us and we could not say no. Zeus had bad hooves, but that was an easy fix. The main problem we had to address was that Zeus was a jack so gelding him was a priority.

LUCKY

 

Meet Buzz!

Buzz is a "short-eared donkey" hehe... All kidding aside, when we saw this miniature horse we couldn't help but save the poor soul. Poor Buzz came to us scared, sick, with overgrown hooves, and he even had saddle sores! So sad to think that people rode poor Buzz. Buzz is about 4 y.o. and he is very small. Buzz got his name when one of our volunteers said "His eyes are out of this world!" (Referring to his beautiful blue eyes) Today, Buzz is happy and healthy. He leads great and has good ground manners. Buzz Lightyear is ready to find his forever home!

 

Meet Lucky!

We rescued Lucky from an auction in Kentucky. He came to us with air pockets under his skin and a collapsed lung, leading us to believe he was trampled in the auction house. He also came down with a severe case of Pneumonia. Overall, Lucky had an extremely low chance of pulling through, but he fought and beat the odds. You could say his name is quite fitting! Today Lucky is healthy and happy at the rescue awaiting his forever home. He is very sweet and gentle. Not to mention, he is quite the looker! How can you resist that handsome coat pattern?

JACK

 

JOHNNY B. GOOD

 

Meet Jack!

Jack was given to lady to protect her goats. Let's just say that livestock protection isn't on Jack's job description... Aside from Jack's obvious dislike towards goats, he was quite the escape artist. Jack would get under the fence and go visit the neighbors. Unfortunately, the neighbors weren't as excited to see him and he was to see them! The neighbor had a bad reputation when it came to unwelcomed animal visitors. Scared that her donkey wasn't safe, his owner gave us a call. We couldn't say no. Jack is now at our rescue. He was recently gelded but, otherwise is very healthy. He leads well and has good manners. He is very sweet and goofy. Jack is ready to find his forever home!

  Meet Johnny B Good! Johnny had a rough life. He was kept in a small dog pen. Poor Johnny could stand up and lay down but couldn't turn or walk around. Being the smart donkey that he is, he escaped from the horrifying dog pen multiple times and walked over to the neighbors. The neighbor kept on putting him back in the cage but one day decided no more. Terry became the voice for Johnnny. Unfortunately, her property isn't set up for equine. She gave us a call and we put him on the donkey express from North Carolina to Michigan. Jack has good manners and leads well. He's ready to be adopted!

Wilma is beautiful jenny who is very sweet! She is a donkey that you could sit with for house and relieve stress from work, or anything else. Ms. Wilma has good ground manners and is ready to go to her forever home!

Suzy

   
   

Suzy is one of our many miracle girls. Suzy came to us extremely malnourished (as pictured she has picked up a lot of weight since this picture was taken). She was old and unhealthy, not a good thing at all. But to make matters worse, we quickly found out that Suzy was pregnant. Veterinarians didn't think the baby would make it and were preparing us for the chance that our sweet Suzy may not make it out of labor either.  But Suzy never gave up. She foaled a gorgeous jenny who we fittingly call Miracle. It was not easy, but they both made it out with flying colors! Miracle was adopted with her friend Precious. Now Suzy is awaiting her retirement home. Suzy is a very sweet elderly jenny. She needs a place that she can live out her days while being spoiled, she deserves it!
