A member of the public spotted Cinco and Sergio wandering down a desolate road in Tipperary, Ireland. We went in search and found both were malnourished and soaked to the skin as they had no shelter. It was also evident they had not been treated by a farrier in a number of years, as their hooves were severely overgrown, twisted and painful. This kind of neglect breaks the hearts of our staff, no matter how many times we have to face it. The two dishevelled donkeys were carefully loaded onto our lorry and taken to the safety of our Sanctuary in County Cork, where they are receiving ongoing veterinary and farriery care.
Tune in next time to hear how our two new friends are settling in and responding to their new, loving home.
