Right now, a donkey like Michaela will be suffering – abused, injured or simply abandoned and left to die. When she was found, Michaela was blind and with a broken leg. She’d been dumped in the desert – with no food or water – so emaciated that every single bone in her ribcage could be seen. The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) needs you to be there for a donkey just like Michaela.
Donkeys like Michaela need your help
Michaela had been spotted by police limping along the side of the highway. There’s no way of knowing how long she’d been on that dusty stretch of road, but if it weren’t for Zvika from our local partner, Pegasus, she would have surely died – slowly of dehydration or starvation, alone, in the barren desert.
And just a month later Michaela gave birth to a foal. We nicknamed him Spindles, but sadly he too had suffered from her neglect. He was born prematurely before his legs had a chance to form properly and they began to collapse under his weight so he could hardly stand. The Pegasus team are doing everything they can to nurse him back to health – he is one of many donkeys and horses that they care for.
You could save another donkey like Michaela.
Michaela, and her foal Spindles, are lucky to be alive. Lucky that Zvika Tamus from our local partner Pegasus, responds to emergency calls any time of the day or night, rescuing donkeys and horses in desperate need of help. He’ll drop everything and, by taking them to the Pegasus rescue centre, he’ll save their lives. But he can’t do it without your help.
Your donation could save a donkey from horrific abuse.
Michaela’s is an all too common story, especially when working donkeys and horses are seen as disposable – something that can be simply abandoned once they are unable to work. Zvika is determined to save every donkey, horse or mule that needs him - but he can’t do it alone. Please, will you give a gift that could help rescue a donkey in desperate need?
You could be part of the team by making a donation that could help save the life of a donkey today.
