Sanctuary and friendship in Cork City for a rescued donkey called St Francis

The kindness of Cork City residents has this month helped to save a donkey which is now recovering in the care of The Donkey Sanctuary.

Several members of the public in Cork had become concerned for the donkey, which has since been named St Francis, after seeing him tied to a railing by his back leg with a painfully tight head collar. The donkey could barely move and eventually broke free from the railing and wandered onto the areas’ extremely busy roads.

Donkeys abandoned in derelict warehouse find solace with the Sanctuary

It’s hard to envisage what to expect when you receive a call concerning two donkeys abandoned in a disused site and what you will see when you arrive there. Our Welfare team is certainly used to dealing with unexpected situations but we are naturally often shocked ourselves by what we see. It seems that the parameters of donkey neglect and irresponsible management are constantly being stretched further and further…

Please help donkeys in need like James

James was rescued by The Donkey Sanctuary after being abandoned and spending two years alone in a field with no adequate access to shelter or grazing. He was in very poor body condition with severely overgrown and twisted hooves. James like so many other donkeys have been neglected and abused and The Donkey Sanctuary has come to their rescue. The mission of the Sanctuary is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home our donkeys by transforming their quality of life. Our vision is of a world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued.
