Forgiveness is a quality we more often ascribe to dogs than to donkeys, but Birju has made us all re-think such a thing because not only was he burned by hot water in a deliberate act of cruelty, he has undergone repeated wound dressings for the past year, and may never fully heal.

But Birju has reached into his deep well of friendliness and trust, and has made us feel privileged to care for him.

Watch Birju’s rescue story!
