Well how the months are flying by, here we are in August, 5 months and it’ll be Christmas.
The temperatures are right up there in the high thirties and we are doing everything we can to keep cool.
Huge thanks to all our wonderful supporters who donated money towards fly masks for our donkeys and horses. Half have arrived and the other half will be here around 17th August. The heat brings the flies, so the masks really do stop the donkeys from being stressed.
Our two ‘newies’ from the Pererra in Murcia, Platinum & Jubilee are doing well. Platinum had the most horrid abscess in her hoof and the pain must have been horrendous. Thankfully she’s on the mend – she’s still not walking perfectly as her hooves were in such a mess so it’s time for her and a good trim every 6 weeks should do the job, BUT she’s an absolutely gorgeous girl.
I often say it’s a privilege to be in the position to be able to help these animals and thanks to all our wonderful supporters we hope to help many more.
We’ve had a busy month at the sanctuary with farrier visits and vet visits so it really doesn’t stop.
We’ve been asking for help for the donkeys for a few months now, but sadly no-one has come forward which I’m surprised at! Who wouldn’t want to live in beautiful surroundings helping care for these wonderful creatures with accommodation and food ….. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
We advertised 2 dogs on our fb page, Molly and Sheba. Both have offers for homes, so we will see how that turns out. Home checks will have been done by the time you read this.
Huge thanks to the guys from Nigel’s Thursday Men’s Golf Group on La Torre Golf Resort, who played at Las Colinas and raised a wonderful €215 for the donkeys. All the donkey’s could say is; “do we get more carrots Moma?” – the answer is YES, but also a few more fly masks.
We are always in need of the magic cream SUDOCREM, so if anyone is coming out and can fit a few in their cases or car that would be amazing.
If you would like to donate to the 107 donkeys we now have (yes 107!), we have a monthly sponsorship scheme. If you are interested, please send me a message or whatsapp

As usual every Monday there will be someone (usually me!) in the car park on the roundabout of Camposol B where you can drop donations off between 11.30am-1.30pm. We’re very visible with yellow panels on the side of our vans. Larger items can be collected by prior arrangement. Otherwise, items can be dropped off at either of our shops in Roldan or Mazarrón between the hours of 10.30am -1.30pm.
