Charity helps cruelty-stricken donkeys [14/05/2007]
Donkeys which had often been kept as pets and subjected to a miserable existence in Israel are being nursed back to health by a caring animal charity.

UK-based Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land (SHADH) owns a clinic built on farmland where it treats and cares for the animals which are in need or have suffered.

However, the charity needs some £227,000 to safeguard its future, the People reports.

The charity's founder, 36-year-old former air hostess Lucy Fensom, said: "We're looking to secure SHADH's future by buying the land on which our sanctuary is built.

"We've done a deal with the landlord and it will cost £227,000. We're already fundraising and any donation, no matter what the amount, would be very welcome."

The charity not only provides help for sick and injured donkeys at its own sanctuary, it also owns a mobile clinic which administers aid to the animals out working in Israel's streets.

Donations can be made to support the charity's work through various ways and Ms Fensom is also requesting items such as bandages and tea tree oil to be sent over to help with the care of the donkeys.
