Hope the donkey, living in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn California

Hope was used to smuggle drugs in and out of Mexico. She was treated with much cruelty and was terrified of humans. She was finally rescued and taken to America. She gave birth to her daughter at the donkey rescue and adopted another orphaned baby donkey as well. When the founder got ill and was no longer able to care for them, all three of them were brought to The Gentle Barn to learn to trust and stay together. Hope is slowly learning to forgive and trust again, and will stay here with her babies for the rest of her life.
