The Donkey Sanctuary, Ireland.

The Donkey Sanctuary in Ireland has so far taken in over 2,400 donkeys rescued from all parts of the country. Every donkey taken into the Sanctuary is guaranteed a life of loving care. For many it is the first time in their lives that they have felt loving hands and heard quiet voices.

The Donkey Sanctuary website contains more information about the wonderful work done at the Sanctuary. You can make an online donation or even adopt a donkey of your very own.

    It is so terrible that human beings treat them so cruelly. Why are some human beings such dreadful creatures, John?

    Beautiful photograph.

  • thanks for photo coment Helen, much appreciated. And yes I agree about the mistreatment, still it gladdens my heart there are others who are equally kind-hearted as others can be cruel, if only it weren’t needed but at least we have good people in the world willing to try and undoe the wrongs.

    A heartwarming story thanks to the kindness and compassion of caring people and thank you for sharing this JD.

  • I am hoping to do more for them soon as I am home – I think that place like this exists is such a wonderful thing – of course, would be even more wonderful if it wasn’t needed, but is good to know there are many good people out there doing what they can to protect. :)
