Wounded donkey’s eyes almost speak as her healing begins.

Someone noticed a donkey in a field whose bone was exposed from a devastating friction wound, made worse by maggots. Our rescuers found that she flinched whenever we lifted our hands to caress and lead her, telling us that she didn’t trust people.

During her first treatment she lay perfectly still, her ears oriented backwards in fear and defeat. Her eyes spoke so deeply and with so much complexity it is hard to summarize in just a word. They held anguish, resignation, fatigue. But they also radiated kindness, announcing her profound sweetness. As soon as we eased her pain with medicine, stabilizing bandages and a splint, her glow of life brightened–you could just see it.

Watch this girl, so inward and dejected at the start, unfurl her beautiful wings and beam with life as she heals. We call her Butterfly. You’ll see why.

A man said:”Yea for Butterfly!!! She is such a sweet soul… to all the people that helped in her recovery thank you so much you’ve made a difference in this little girls life. I wish her the long happy life that she deserves as do all animals!!!”

A YᴏᴜTᴜber ᴜser pᴏsted:”I love it when the background music changes with the condition of the animal. I especially love seeing the last part of the videos…. Thanks for helping the needy voiceless souls.”

A cᴏmmenter said:”Literally I get tears after watching every video of u guys by seeing the condition of those innocent souls but at last it makes me smile seeing their condition back like normal and their amazing journey of transformation from injured to completely fit and fine. Saulte to ya guys”
