Donkeys are in urgent need of your help to receive veterinary care.
In many parts of western Tanzania, donkeys are forced to pull extremely heavy carts throughout the day. These loads wear heavily on donkeys—causing neck wounds and putting them in heavy distress. After all of their hard work, they are often left dehydrated from the lack of water provided, and they become infected with parasites that are left untreated. Without proper animal welfare laws, donkeys in Tanzania are usually abandoned or killed when they are too sick, injured or weak to work.
Greater Good Charities partners with Tanzania Animals Protection Organization (TAPO) to help donkeys in need. They provide veterinary treatment to ten villages with high populations of working donkeys, ensuring they are properly nourished, and free from wounds or disease. With your help, TAPO wants to fulfill its promise to improve the welfare of more than 3,000 donkeys in the ten villages. After treating overt health issues, their mission is to educate locals on how to properly care for their donkeys, ensuring them a healthy and happy life.
You can help! Just $28 covers the costs of all injections to keep a donkey healthy.
