Oscar the Donkey Who Has Crossed the Rainbow Bridge
Oscar's previous owners inherited him with the house they just bought. At age 36 they essentially turned him out to pasture. He was provided with grass, a shelter and water. He then foundered and was not treated at all. Hatton Animal Rescue Foundation finally heard about him when he was 39 years old. He weighed under 300 lbs when his normal weight should have been 600 lbs. His hooves had not been trimmed in at least 3 years and he could hardly walk. He was rehabilitated and treated for all of his health needs once he was rescued. He lived to be 44 years old in comfort and love.
