The Donkey Sanctuary has teamed up with a Belgian donkey sanctuary to train a new generation of donkey care professionals.

Through this collaboration with Anegria, a charity based in Stekene, East Flanders, The Donkey Sanctuary's experts have been training a new generation of vets, farriers and physiotherapists who until now have mostly been trained to treat horses.

By training the next generation of professionals, our work will have a lasting impact and could help every donkey in Belgium that hasn't had access to specialist care. Our work will also impact those children and adults who will benefit from donkey interactions.

By working alongside charities like Anegria and by investing our expertise we will raise the profile of donkeys in Belgium and improve their welfare for generations to come.
