Report donkey cruelty
The Donkey Sanctuary has a dedicated team of Donkey Welfare Advisers across Ireland who investigate reports of cruelty to or neglect of donkeys.
As a direct consequence of members of the public getting in touch, many donkeys and mules are rescued and saved from further suffering.
