Macie was another baby donkey who had been born at the sanctuary just like Charlie, after her mom Gracie was saved from the kill lot mere weeks before Charlie arrived.
Unlike Charlie, Macie was very ill when she was first born. For a while, rescuers weren't sure if she would even survive. "It was sad to see such a small donkey so sick," Missy Smith, a volunteer with BHHR, told The Dodo. "But she bounced back."
