We often come across cases of neglect and Sam is no exception. At three years of age, Sam certainly had not had the best start in life. Rescued by our Sanctuary in Ireland he now has a Sanctuary for life.
Over the years the Donkey Sanctuary has paid particular attention to maintaining strong relationships with other Irish animal welfare organisations. We have found that this is essential in order to achieve high standards of donkey welfare and to that end we love to share our expertise with others.
On a bright sunny June Bank Holiday Monday it was wonderful to see so many ladies gathered in the middle of Dublin city for the Flora Mini Marathon – 17 of which were running for the donkeys. 40,000 ladies in all ran through the streets of the city to raise some much needed funds for various charities throughout Ireland – a tremendous turn out on such a glorious day.

Hi everybody, long and short eared ! And sooooooooo sorry for being away from the blog for so long. Translating that enormous catalogue for the forthcoming Bhutanese exhibition at the Musée Guimet kept me busy all right, but furthermore, I had a major internet connexion failure which lasted nearly two months until I got hold of a the right technician who sorted it out. Anyway, I’m now back online and that’s a relief. Crazy how one gets used to modern technology and is easily lost when it goes wrong.
