Jonathan

On Monday 22nd May 2017, a new donkey arrived at the sanctuary. Jonathan (as we decided to call him) was found as a stray wandering the streets of a village near Tel Aviv. The lady who found him knew of Safe Haven’s work and very kindly arranged for him to be brought to us. When he arrived, Jonathan, who is about 5 years old, was clearly very frightened and reluctant to come out of the horse box. As well as a number of small wounds, Jonathan had a huge wound in his side that had obviously been causing him pain

A brave couple

This hardworking donkey belongs to a disabled man who lost a leg in an accident some time ago.  Without the donkey, the owner would not be able to earn a living and feed his family.  He brought the donkey to us as he had an abscess on his neck – we were glad to help both the lovely donkey and the man who relies so totally on him for tasks such as taking goods to the market to sell and bringing home food for the family.  They are both survivors and we wish them the best.
