Caring for two donkeys and a mule was proving difficult for an owner who reached out to us for help and advice. Ciara O'Kelly, Donkey Welfare Adviser and other members of our welfare team reassured her and put a plan in place to support the owner and improve the welfare of her animals.
"I felt compelled to contact you following my recent experience with your wonderful organisation. I was at my wits' end having taken on two donkeys and a wayward mule as a favour for a friend.
When Emily Collins, Donkey Welfare Adviser investigated a welfare concern, she discovered a group of donkeys desperately in need of our help. It was clear they all needed new homes. Two homes were quickly identified for donkeys Lily and OB. Our friends at Hungry Horse Outside stepped up to offer a rescue space for Seanie and two colts called Teddy and Eric and they were moved to a local vet hospital to receive further care. While receiving treatment Emily and fellow Donkey Welfare Adviser, Clare Crowther, identified suitable homes for the three donkeys.
