There are just three days left to watch Shocks the donkey help two poorly twins on the BBC’s Animal Saints and Sinners TV programme last week.
Abused and abandoned in Ireland he underwent an amazing recovery, bouncing back from severe injury and trauma to help Amber and Hope, premature twins, with their own recovery.
There was an “instant bond” and the girls instantly adored Shocks, says mum Tracy.
“He loved them a little bit too,” explained his admiring groom, Gary.

Shocks features from around six minutes in to 15 minutes.
Not only a Saint, Shocks is also a Hero.
Because of his past, and because of his amazing turnaround from terrified abandoned donkey in Ireland in 2010 to incredibly calm therapy donkey today, Shocks was awarded the title of Animal Hero 2013.
