URGENT RESCUE…..In desperate need of help 🙏🏻

We got a call a couple days ago about 4 donkeys that had been dumped in Castlecomber. The Donkey Sanctuary in Cork said they would not take them in as they are apparently full. We too are full to the max but could not say no as it was clear the donkeys were in a bad way (desperate feet and bloated bellies..obviously infected with worms).

They were left in a tiny field hidden down a lane,with no food or water. We are having their feet done tomorrow,as well as wormed,vaccinated and checked by vet. These four very sweet boys will then be looking for new forever homes (in twos only). Pls pm us if u can give any them a loving home or please donate a little something to help with the vet and vaccinations costs if you can. All three are adult Jacks and one is a yearling. So sad that yet again these sweet donks have been found abandoned.💔💔💔💔.
