Rescue mission for Gideon

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 rain and flooding in Israel, Lucy set all wheels in motion and the little soaked donkey arrived safely at Lucy's sanctuary in the middle of the night. He turned out to be an ungelded male with round tummy, rather than a pregnant female! Lucy gave him the name Gideon, after her beautiful rescue donkey who went missing after the arson attack on the sanctua

Outreach Clinic in Al Razaz

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, to enable us continue supporting this vital work, making a difference for these gentle creatures.

Update on our appeal

No words can fully express our gratitude to the very generous people who have given donations to help us in our emergency, especially when we know there are so many, very worthy causes around the world as well as disasters, all desperate for help. Yet, we must continue to appeal for help as we need to build up more regular support if we are to survive. If we cannot raise the ongoing urgently needed funds necessary to maintain our sanctuary for our 50 rescued donkeys and horses, which, per month, costs on average $6420 / £5000 / €5820 / 22,280 Israeli shekels, it will mean one thing - we will need to close. A rough estimate of what it costs to provide for each one of our animals per month is:

Goodbye little Crystal....

Tragically, we have lost one of Lucy's beautiful rescued donkeys, Crystal. We don’t know what the cause was, she had been completely well but literally just collapsed and passed away, it was very sudden. Dear Crystal was not young and she’d had a tremendously hard life before Lucy rescued her in 2016. She came to Lucy's sanctuary with her adult daughter Bella, and she was also pregnant with Bilbo - it was clear that she was a very worn out, hard worked, old soul even then. The vet thinks her cause of death could have been heart failure or a severe stroke. We have to take heart in the fact that she was with Lucy living a very contented, relaxed and peaceful life for her last three years. Her
