Over 16,300 fantastic supporters have donated to help us build our new hospital. Thanks to your help, our new hospital is progressing well with all walls erected, most of the floor laid and the roof coming along very well. All this means that the new facility will be opening at the beginning of 2017.
Doing The Donkey Work Walk
On 28 September, a collection of vets and staff who work with our worldwide projects are celebrating the fantastic new facilities and the tremendous benefits it will provide to sick and in need donkeys by walking some of the route from our current hospital to the brand new hospital building on the outskirts of Honiton.
We are calling it ‘Doing The Donkey Work’ because through it we wish to highlight the role that donkeys play in building communities and cities around the world, the welfare problems that they face, our commitment to Dr Svendsen’s dream of providing hands-on welfare both here in the UK and all over the world.
The walk is
- Symbolic: continuing Dr Svendsen’s commitment to excellence in hands-on donkey welfare
- Cooperative: in our departments joining together to highlight donkey welfare problems and celebrate how the hospital will be used for education and training vets from around the world
- Educational: to share stories of the welfare conditions and roles of working donkeys in construction and building communities.
