You had me at baby donkeys! No, seriously I'm in love with donkeys and if we had room and lived in Texas I'd be tempted to adopt a few! We simply have too many dogs!
Ready for adoption, the Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) has more than 60 donkeys, mini donkeys, and baby donkeys, as well as thoroughbred horses. Most of the equines are at their ranch location in Joshua.
Mental Floss tells us,
"Many of the equines at HSNT's ranch in Joshua, Texas came from owners who had to give them up, and others were transferred from different animal rescue groups. As part of the ASPCA's Help A Horse Home Challenge, HSNT is hosting events to help find new homes for its horses and donkeys."
You can check out all the adoption events on their Facebook page.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals's Help A Horse Home Challenge, began April 26.
According to the Cleburne Times-Review, HSNT will host open house events from 10 a.m. to noon tomorrow and June 8 at the ranch, in conjunction with each of the Triple Crown races (the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes).
"The Director of Communications for HSNT said the organization hopes to find homes for the horses and donkeys in its care and educate the public about responsible ownership of equines."
