Thank You For Caring! We need you as we fight together for better living conditions, access to basic medical care and treatment of hard working donkeys.
You have the power to make a lasting difference to donkeys in need by donating today.
Here at Safe Haven for Donkeys nearly 200 abandoned, injured and traumatised donkeys have found refuge at our sanctuary located near the Israeli town of Netanya. A sanctuary where discarded donkeys can live a life full of love and care they so much need.
With your help we provide free veterinary care to working donkeys, mules and horses in towns and villages across the Palestinian Territories and in the El Saf brick kilns of Egypt. In order to bring about long-term changes in attitudes towards these humble beasts of burden, education sessions for owners and local veterinary students are also a vital part of what we do.
We are the only organisation dedicated to the welfare of working and abandoned donkeys in Israel, the West Bank and Egypt and have been here for the donkeys for over 20 years.
We can only bring this much needed help with your support and kind donations…
£10 could pay for hoof trimming for a donkey
£15 could feed a donkey for 2 weeks
£25 could pay for a vet to visit the sanctuary to check on all the donkeys
£40 could pay for 2 donkeys to have their teeth checked by the equine dentist
£60 could pay for a sack of milk replacement powder for an orphaned foal
£95 could run our Nablus clinic for the day
Ways to donate
You can now donate securely with any major credit/debit card via our online secure server & World pay. Simply click on the donate button to start your donation and then follow the on-screen instructions. Thank you for helping to ensure that Safe Haven can continue its work in the Middle East. If you are a taxpayer, once you have made your donation, don’t forget to complete a Gift Aid declaration to allow us to reclaim an extra 25p for every pound donated from the Inland Revenue – for further information see below.
Safe Haven relies entirely on donations from the public to be able to continue its vital work with donkeys in Israel, the West Bank and Egypt. To make a donation by cheque, postal order or CAF voucher, please click here for a donation form to print off, complete and return to our UK headquarters.
If you are in the UK, you can donate to us using your mobile phone. Simply text DONKEY followed by the amount you want to give to 70085, for example DONKEY 5. Texts will cost the amount you donate plus your standard network rate for the text.
Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving more to charity. If you are a UK taxpayer, the Gift Aid scheme means that for every pound you give to Safe Haven for Donkeys, we could receive an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue. This means that a £10 “Gift Aided” donation is worth £12.50 to us – imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost you a thing.
Providing you pay tax (Income and/or Capital Gains) Safe Haven will be entitled to reclaim on your donations in the same financial year. Even if you are not working you may still be a taxpayer – for example, savings and private pension plans are taxed and the sale of property or shares attracts Capital Gains tax.
It is surprisingly easy to “Gift Aid” your donations – all you have to do is make a simple declaration (joint if the donation was from one or more people) that you wish us to reclaim tax on any donations you have made during the previous 4 years and any you may make in the future.
You can make this declaration in one of four easy ways:
Online – if donating online with a credit or debit card, simply tick the gift aid declaration when completing the online donation form.
Print – Download a Gift Aid declaration form here. Simply print and complete it and return it to Safe Haven’s headquarters:
Unit 23 More House Farm Business Centre
Ditchling Road, Wivelsfield
E-mail – email email@example.com giving Safe Haven permission to reclaim tax on any donations you have made in the last four years or may make in the future, remembering to quote your full name, address and supporter number
Telephone – call us on +44 (0) 1444 470136
If you are a higher rate taxpayer there is even better news – you are eligible to reclaim even more tax by including details of your donations on your Self-Assessment form.
During the last year, Safe Haven has been able to reclaim £25,000 from the Inland Revenue – that’s enough to pay for a veterinary surgeon to visit the sanctuary every day – so as you can see, “Gift Aiding” your donations really would make a huge difference to our work!
