Ruby Stndard Donk


Ruby is a grey dun Standard donkey who was born on the 25th of July 2013. Ruby, along with her mother Diamond and two siblings –Pearl and Jasper - was living on a farm in Southwestern Ontario, until they were surrendered to the DSC in August 2013 after the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA investigated reported neglect at the farm.

Upon arrival, it was apparent Ruby was suffering from some breathing problems that may have come from her not having received the necessary nourishment from her mother to grow up healthy. She was put on antibiotics to help her fight off infections until she can get stronger. Like all baby animals, Ruby has quickly warmed her way into the hearts of staff, volunteers and visitors alike.
