Meet Shrek

Hi, my name is Shrek! I am a 2-year-old donkey gelding.

My story is very similar to Hulk's story…
I came in from the October auction. I was with a big group of donkeys who were heading to slaughter at the auction, along with my buddy Hulk (who was also rescued and up for adoption). We were all shaking from fear as we were being loaded up onto the slaughter trailer. It was noisy and people were yelling at us and swinging ropes around to get us to move. Just when my buddy Hulk and I were about to step foot onto the slaughter trailer, everything stopped for a moment, the ropes stopped swinging and it was quiet and all I heard was the sound of two people talking… Horse Plus had bought Hulk and I and we were now saved from going to slaughter.
When we arrived at the shelter we were checked by the veterinarian and given special care.
I am still skittish of people but I am very curious and I want to trust. I will come up and eat grain out of a bucket with someone, even let them gently pet my forehead. I am fast at learning and being only 2 years old gives me a lot of years to learn new things. I have been haltered a few times and seem to do pretty well being led.

Shrek is a cute strawberry colored donkey and a very quick learner. He enjoys when we come out to his pasture to sit with him and feed him treats and grain. We are still on the building trust level, but he’s progressed greatly! He is very sweet and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body which is amazing with all that he’s been through before coming to the shelter. We are looking to find him a home where he can learn to build trust and be a happy, spoiled donkey.
