Taken with a Kodak Z650 f3 @ 1/800

This pair of friends were rescued from a property that no longer wanted them. The chocolate donkey on the right was found entangled in barbed wire fencing. Her legs, healed now, were cut to pieces, and she does walk with a limp. Her best friend on the left, stayed with her the whole time. Donkeys find a best friend and are with that friend for life… These two are now as happy as can be at the Donkey Sanctuary, being well looked after and much loved..

…taken at the Good Samaritan Donkey Sanctuary Inc located in the Hunter Valley of NSW, Australia… There are over 100 rescued and abandoned donkeys being cared for by volunteers at this fantastic place. All purchases of this print/card/poster will go directly to the Sanctuary… For more information about this wonderful CHARITY… go to www.donkeyrescue.org.au

    Thank goodness this little donkey’s story had a happy ending. I’m very touched by this tale. Thank you for posting this.

  • Wow, thank you. From my many years of volunteering there, then working there, I have many stories. Some tragic ones too, but the majority all ended lovely.. Thanks so much..
