A vigilant walker alerted us to Aero’s plight. Aero was found by our Welfare Adviser, Ian Coulton, trapped in a small area between a railway track and a flooded trench in the west of Ireland.
Ian worked with the Garda in Co. Galway to bring Aero to safety, which was no easy feat considering the precarious surroundings.
Aero had been abandoned and left hungry, and his hooves were distorted and in an appalling condition. Now he has love and protection for the rest of his life.
We will never turn away a donkey in need, no matter how difficult the circumstances are.
Here at The Donkey Sanctuary donkeys always come first, second and third.
