DIESEL, DEXTER AND DEWEY! All saved, gelded and in quarantine. Our Dec 2023 Bucket Fund donkeys!

In December, 2023, we created a Bucket Fund in Norma Jean’s honor, to help save/geld/quarantine/house and treat three donkeys in the kill pen in Texas.

Diesel, Dexter and Dewey being run down the aisle at the feedlot in Texas. From here, they were put into the ASAIB trailer to head to safety.


Now named Diesel (the big guy), Dexter and Dewey, all three boys are now gelded and safely in quarantine in Texas.  So far, so good.  All received vaccinations and a good once-over by the veterinarian team at Outlaw Vet.

THANK YOU to All Seated in a Barn for doing the groundwork and making this all happen.

This was our initial receipt to get them out of the feedlot.

This was for the gelding of all three donkeys! THANK YOU


Here is a short video of the boys recently… all three still very wild, but safe and relatively healthy – and eating well, finally.

THANK YOU ALL, GREAT JOB!  I’m sure Norma is smiling.

I agree, it is hard to watch these scared donkeys being herding in this disgusting place… but at least they are being herded to freedom!

Every cent collected will go towards their vet visits, quarantine, meds, food, housing and transportation.

Thank you for honoring Norma Jean.  Thank you, in advance!

We are approximately $1000 from our goal.  ALL DONATIONS ARE 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
