New arrival on Easter Monday

Lockie was born on Easter Monday (Monday 13 April) at our sanctuary in Ireland.

His mum, Honeybee, was part of a rescue and came into our care already in foal, so we were unable to tell exactly when she was due. When she was examined by our Head of Veterinary Services, he knew Honeybee would soon start producing milk and it would not be long until her foal arrived.

Why donate monthly


£4 a month can help pay for bandages and dressings to ease painful wounds and sores.


£12 a month can help us rescue donkeys from suffering and neglect when they are most in need.


£16 a month can help deliver first aid kits and training to donkey owners.
