Give overworked and abused Nepalese Donkeys a well-deserved retirement!
Countless equines (donkeys, mules and horses) are employed in brick kilns and construction sites across India and Nepal. With such a harsh working conditions for the people, one can only imagine the horrific treatment set upon the working donkeys. It is not uncommon for the animals to be worked until they collapse of physical exhaustion. Poorly designed and overloaded saddles create deep wounds on the donkeys' backs and legs. Due to non-existent veterinary care, sick and injured donkeys were simply left to die. Help Animals India groups have stepped in to give these donkeys a helping hand and are providing a safe retirement sanctuary for abused working equines.
GreaterGood.org partners with Help Animals India to allow the most severely overworked donkeys a chance to retire. These donkeys were all on the verge of death when Animal Nepal stepped in to rescue them. Some were blind, others lame or severely malnourished. The Godavari Donkey Sanctuary provides donkeys with good nutrition, accessible veterinary care, and a safe home.
You can help. Just $10 provides a new blanket for one retired donkey, and just $20 provides hay for one retired donkey for one week. Give these donkeys the retirement they deserve!
Help Animals India seeks out the most promising, yet under-funded animal welfare organizations across India and Nepal to provide financial assistance and practical training and consultation. Help Animals India actively seeks out NGOs that are dedicated, effective, efficient, and socially responsible, so that funders' support goes directly where it can make the most difference. They strive not only to achieve immediate benefits for India's animals, but to nurture an enduring culture of animal protectionism.
