The veterinary department at The Donkey Sanctuary is regarded as a centre of excellence when it comes to donkey veterinary care.
Preparation work has begun on a new facility which will help us build on our reputation both nationally and all around the world.
Our dedicated veterinary team offer advice and training to owners, professionals and students alike and work closely with our European projects.
Thanks to your kind donations, we will be able to utilise new training rooms, offering 24/7 advice to vets worldwide.
This dedication to training and donkey welfare was epitomised recently when we hosted a four-day event, welcoming partner organisations who provide care for donkeys and mules across Europe.
The aim was to bring together these organisations to learn and share from each other and plan for the future.
Our guests also received talks and demonstrations on dentistry, farriery, saddle packs, educating communities and much more.
Training, advice and education such as this is vital to achieve our vision of a world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued.
The new veterinary facility will allow us to create a better environment for teaching and learning, and your donations are making our vision become a reality for thousands of donkeys and mules. Thank you.
