Sam's story

Orphaned shortly after birth, Sam the foal spent his very first Christmas without a mum, in need of 24-hour care.

The Donkey Sanctuary offered him a home and urgent help to get him through his first few weeks.

Worried grooms bottle-fed Sam around the clock in a bid to build his strength, while surrogate mum Soozee taught him the donkey way.

Sam received all the right vaccinations and treatments - even minor surgery on a worrying lump – and now he faces a much brighter future of safety and sanctuary.

How your donation will help

Your support today means a life of sanctuary and expert care for neglected and abandoned donkeys, as well as veterinary treatment and global education to improve donkey welfare.
