When a tiny, shivering donkey foal wandered into a store all alone, the kind shop owner knew exactly what to do. He made her a warm bed and a plate of food and then quickly called PETA’s veterinary services in Petra for help.

The poor foal had somehow become separated from her mother and their guardian, but the shop owner’s kindness helped her relax. When veterinary staff arrived, she batted her long eyelashes as she patiently allowed them to check her for injuries.

The staff scooped up the lost little donkey and took her back to the clinic, where they named her Moj. The veterinarian kept her comfortable overnight, hoping that her guardian would show up with her mom to care for her.
