A donkey with a seriously open wound and painfully overgrown hooves greeted one of our welfare officers when she visited two donkeys in Co. Mayo. Left there in December 2013, Liam and Bartley were in significant pain.
Three year old Bartley had long and split hooves and old scars on his face, while two year old Liam had an open wound on his rear flank.
We sprang into action and calls were made to a vet and farrier to deal with their immediate needs before transferring them both to our Sanctuary.
This is just the beginning of their road to recovery but thanks to your support they are now guaranteed a life free of suffering.
