29784022_15259512080_r.jpegWe have been absolutely devastated here at Donegal Donkey Sanctuary by the news that our vehicle and horsebox were wrecked beyond all repair on Tuesday night as a result of a freak accident.
Without this vehicle the sanctuary is unable to function and all intake and rehoming has been suspended for the foreseeable future.

Late on Tuesday night Danny was returning to the sanctuary after making welfare calls when a freak accident occurred.  He emerged unscathed and no other vehicles were involved.  Thankfully no donkeys were in transit at the time.
Danny swerved to avoid a deer which appeared at a sharp bend on the road and the vehicle mounted the ditch before plummeting 15 feet into the field below.

Even though the vehicle is insured all indications are that any payment received from the insurance company will fall far short of what is required to purchase a new
vehicle and horsebox to carry our vital work.

Dear Supporter,
With a record number of donkeys in our care we are concerned to find our winter feed supplies getting dangerously low. Each year we estimate (as best we can) the number of bales needed when grass growth stops outdoors and the feeding of hay/haylage begins. Once again this winter has seen an unprecedented amount of vulnerable souls arrive at our doors in need of shelter, food and the touch of a loving hand.
Paddock grazing is some months off at this stage and the level of feeding needed has placed a considerable financial burden on sanctuary funds. We are reaching out to our loyal supporters for any help that could be given. No donation is too small. We need to provide enough food for empty tummies until summer grazing can commence. Small bales of hay are currently €5 with the large round bales of hay/haylage costing approx €45/50 each. We are humbled daily by the capacity of these beautiful, gentle creatures to forgive people for the most inhumane treatment. We will do everything in our power to fight for a second chance at life for each and every one. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Sending love and hope around the world tonight. From all at DDS❤️
