It was 25 years ago that John and Tish Hiestand adopted their first donkey.

Black Jack became an immediate hit and represents the foundation of Forever Home Donkey Rescue and Sanctuary. Founded by the Hiestands in 1998, the donkey sanctuary is located in Benson on a 30-acre property about 10 miles south of Cascabel. Home to 29 donkeys and a miniature mule, since its inception 25 years ago the rescue has become a destination spot for locals and visitors alike.
