Donation sent to Spanish donkeys
Thanks to print sales this month, I'll be making some small donations to our selected organizations that help senior animals. I've been wanting to send money to this Spanish donkey rescue for awhile, and only sent a small amount this time. But I'm hoping maybe I can do some kind of fund raiser with a donkey print or something in the near future.
Please visit their website. They have helped so many donkeys and mules out of horrible situations. They also use some of the rescued donkeys to for therapy with children. And they are raising money to help in a horrible brutality case I mention last month.
When I see what these people are doing, I want to take Pino and just go over there for a month and help. But...donkey fare is expensive, and I can help from here, in teeny tiny ways.
So they are on our list of places to help. Please visit their site and consider a donation, or adopting a donkey for as little as $20 a year to help their donkeys, many of whom help children with therapeutic outings.
The picture posted here is Alberto, who they explain is....our blind donkey, came to us from Naples Zoo with a group of 20 donkeys who were in a desperate situation. He has now teamed up with Farruquito, who became Alberto's eyes when he first got here. They both enjoy their daily life in their paddock, where Alberto, thanks to Farruquito's help is now perfectly at ease. He has even become an expert in finding the right spot to be stroked by visitors.
