Donkey rescued from mountain side in Spiddal

The Donkey Sanctuary was able to rescue an abandoned donkey thanks to the fundamental help given by members of the Spiddal community this week.

Following numerous reports from concerned members of the public regarding the welfare of a donkey on mountainous ground without access to feed or shelter, The Donkey Sanctuary’s Welfare Adviser, Ian Colton, searched the area for the donkey.

Robin and Tiernan find a fairytale ending

Both Tiernan and Robin were taken into the care of The Donkey Sanctuary when they were both unwanted. Tiernan the result of being callously dumped in a remote forest while Robin faced possible euthanasia in an equine pound after being discarded.

Following rehabilitation both Tiernan and Robin soon became firm friends and joined our rehoming scheme as both proved to have outstanding personalities and handled exceptionally well.
