Teenage Girl Takes In Abandoned Baby Donkey And Nurses Him Back To Health


Commonly, we heard stories about people who rescue dogs or cats from the streets and bring them back to health, this people are true heroes. But this post is about a completely different rescue.

A teenage girl takes in abandoned baby donkey that was near death and nurses him back to health.

17-year-old Payton Dankworth sprung into action when she received a call from her friend that he had found a baby donkey, and his mom wouldn’t let him take it in. She and the donkey, which she has named Jack, are very close.

Her friend discovered the donkey while he was out riding horses. Jack’s mom wasn’t taking care of him, so he was extremely malnourished and near death. Peyton immediately jumped into action to take care of the sweet Jack back to health.

Since Peyton is taking care of Jack, she said “the first night was the hardest” because she had to fight to get him to eat and go to the bathroom (to be sure all of his organs were working and not shutting down).

Peyton did not give up though, and eventually, he began to eat, go to the bathroom, and gain the strength to walk.

Jack has become a permanent fixture in Peyton’s home. He truly thinks of the teenager as his mom and doesn’t like to be away from her. So, Peyton runs home to feed and play with Jack during any break at school she has.

If Jack is not by Peyton’s side, he is running alongside the family’s pet dogs. In fact, he cries at night when it is time to sleep if the dogs are not nearby. Peyton often takes all three of her pets on walks and car rides together. They love each other so much.

Peyton has enjoyed watching Jack transform from his near-death experience into a happy donkey. She has become so inspired by her adventure with Jack that she has even decided to pursue taking care of animals for a living.
