Two months later and so much healthier, Tulip was headed to her forever home at Flare Oaks Rescue, located in Harnett County, North Carolina. Little did her rescuers know, Tulip had a surprise in store.
On Dec. 6, shortly after Tulip got settled into her new pasture, sanctuary founder Ashley Nelms noticed what looked like a dog lying out next to the donkey in the grass. As Nelms got closer, she couldn’t believe her eyes. It was a tiny baby donkey, likely only minutes old.
