Two days ago we sadly lost our dear little Val. Lucy found her passed away.

We were not surprised because we knew she didn’t have much time left with us due to her age and the cancerous tumor in her throat.

Many a time Lucy and husband & volunteer Adi had wondered if they should call the vet to just let her go, but because she was feisty, enj...

Meet Little Stephen (Stevie), another very poor little soul who has had to endure a hard life but who is now safely at the sanctuary, and it’s such a comfort to see how he can sense that he no longer has anything to fear. 

Being beaten, abused and forced to live a life of hell would be bad enough when you have your eye sight, but this little...

We hope you and your loved ones are keeping healthy and aren't badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. It hasn't been an easy time in Israel either, but Lucy and her volunteer continue to work hard to ensure the donkeys and horses at the sanctuary are cared for.

No matter how deeply traumatized a donkey may be when they are rescued by Lucy, it is always worth trying everything to help them find their way to love and a safe, contented life. Here is an update on Zachariah, who was found at the Syrian border with gouged out eyes and stab wounds on each side of his neck, back in April 2017. 

Many of you s...

This is Lucy's account of her latest outreach trip: 

"These pictures are from our recent visit to the Palestinian village of Ras Atira. Shortly after this visit, the COVID-19 pandemic got a whole lot more serious, eventually leading to the tight restrictions we have today with the same ‘stay at home’ regulations as everywhere else. The West Ba...

A little message to say wherever you are in the world, we are thinking about you and praying that you and your loved ones will stay safe, healthy and well. 

It seems of course out of place for us to appeal for donations at such a time as this when none of us know what the future holds and all that any of us are really able to do now, is just...

Our latest newsletter is out and there have been some changes to our publications. We have decided to combine the Bulletin and Newsletter into one publication which we will send out four times a year - in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Read Lucy's report from her most recent outreach clinic in the Palestinian village Ras Atira, close to the city of Qalilqilya, below: 

It was quite a cold, windy, on and off rainy afternoon and we treated 15 little working donkeys, plus one horse and one mule. 

Unfortunately our farrier was not able to join us for this visit so we need to retur...

Late at night two days ago, Lucy received a call for help from two kind people. They had seen a poor donkey, who had been left stranded in the heavy pouring rain and floods with ropes around his neck. He was soaked to the bone and at first it was thought he was a pregnant female because of round stomach. In the midst of all the storms, heavy...

Here are some impressions of one of Lucy's outreach clinics in the Bedouin encampment of Al Razaz, next to the border between Israel and the Palestinian West Bank.

Without Lucy and her small team, these working donkeys and horses would receive no help or farriery and veterinary care at all.

This is why your help and support is so crucial to us...
