PARKER COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – Adoption is always seen as a selfless act and officials in Parker County are hoping there are North Texans willing to voluntarily take several donkeys home. Yes, donkeys.
Officials with Parker County Sheriff’s Animal Control say a herd of donkeys were picked up more than a month ago. Apparently, someone called authorities when they spotted the 11 donkeys taking a stroll down Hardy Road in Whitt, about 50 miles northwest of Fort Worth.READ MORE: Prices At The Pump Climbing In Texas As Rising Trend Hits Nearly 21-Month High
Animal Control Supervisor Karen Kessler said they could not find the owner of the donkeys and no one has come forward claiming them. All of the donkeys are male, have been castrated and were negative on the Coggins test, for equine infectious anemia or what is also commonly known as swamp fever.
The Weatherford-Parker County Animal Shelter is making adoption simple. There is no application fee and adoption fees for one or more of the donkeys are being waived for
anyone living in the county. “We are only asking for $25 for each of the donkeys to cover the costs of the Coggins testing,” Kessler said. “We just want to see them in permanent, adequate homes.”
The gelded jacks aren’t the only animals available. Parker County also has horses and sheep available for adoption.
The county is also encouraging residents to register their livestock and animals, so they can be traced back to them should they get lost. Registration forms can be found on the Parker County Sheriff’s website.
