Earlier this year a group of 14 donkeys from County Cork came into our care. Parsley was one of the youngest donkeys in this group. Unused to being handled, he was nervous and frightened. Parsley was thin and his lice infested coat was dirty and matted. Our Veterinary Team gently clipped his coat and cared for him with tenderness and love.
Over time, the young donkey settled and began to trust our grooms in New Arrivals. Parsley now lives in the Buffalo Shed Group on Hannigans Farm with his friend BeeBee and some other young donkeys.
In this short film, New Arrivals Supervisor Dawn O'Connor tells about when Parsley came to our sanctuary. To learn more about how the group of 14 donkeys came into our care visit www.thedonkeysanctuary.ie/appeal/the-road-to-recovery
