HUGE RESPONSE TO DONEGAL DONKEY SANCTUARY PLEA

first_imgA Co Donegal man who runs a sanctuary for abandoned donkeys has had a huge response to a public appeal for help.Danny Curran, from Falcarragh, runs the sanctuary in Raphoe where he now lives.And after an appeal in a national newspaper last week, he has been inundated with offers of help. “It’s been a great response,” said Danny. “We have almost 30 animals here now and they are being well looked after but we need more help to look after them.”He is now seeking the help of a lorry driver. He explained: “A farmer in Laois has offered us a lorry load of silage but we don’t have the transport for it.“So if there is anyone who can help, we’d be very grateful.”He urgently needs food and support to get the donkeys over the Christmas period. And there is an adopt-a-donkey initiative which local schools have helped with, costing €25 per month. “Some are abandoned because people can’t afford to keep them any longer. I found one tied to a scrapped car. Other people buy them as pets and put them in their gardens only to realise that they ruin your lawn,” said Danny. If you can help with funding log on to: www.donegaldonkeysanctuary.com HUGE RESPONSE TO DONEGAL DONKEY SANCTUARY PLEA was last modified: December 18th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegal donkey sanctuarylast_img read more
