Current assessment and status: Green- needs training
Zazu is gaining so much confidence from his donkey friends and our dedicated donkey whisperer (Volunteer Ina!). Today he came right over to investigate and search for peppermints. He even let me give him scratches and pats! When Zazu arrived with his friend Memphis they were nearly feral and untouched – a kill pen pull that someone quickly realized they were not equipped to deal with. After trying to seek help from the group that arranged the pull and falling on deaf ears, they reached out to NEER North for help. We took both boys in, wormed them, vetted and castrated them and invested in their training. Both boys are just about ready for their new home and while they would love to be adopted together they could go to donkey experienced homes separately if they have friends. These are big boys and will continue to grow and learn with a patient and kind person.
