Gelding ( male donkey_

Nitro came from a farm in the Kawartha area, where he was housed with cattle as well as 10 of his donkey friends. The donkeys had no appropriate shelter, nutrition or care.

Nitro was only 3 months old when he arrived at the DSC in the fall of 2021 and was still dependent on mom, Chai, for his nutrition and guide around this big world.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Staff let Nitro enjoy life as a donkey before beginning to handle or train him. Once staff began to work with Nitro, he was very eager to please and enjoyed his sessions as all the attention was on him!

He is one of the first to greet staff in his paddock and will follow them around just in case they have any treats for him.

We are excited to watch as Nitro continues to grow and become a handsome donkey.
