DarlaDarla was a 36-year-old mule who was found wandering on Highway 12 in Kenwood.

By law, Animal Control authorities are required to hold loose or abandoned livestock, including horses, for 14 days. Darla’s owners eventually came forward and requested that she be euthanized. Darla’s quality of life was compromised by various age and health challenges.

While Darla was in CHANGE foster care, she received loving care and physical support for three weeks before being humanely euthanized with loving hands around her.
