Four adorable bunches of fluff have landed on their hooves at The Donkey Sanctuary in Britain.

The four unwanted donkey foals were brought into the charity’s care after their owner had a sudden change in circumstances and was unable to take care of them. Fortunately the owner contacted The Donkey Sanctuary, which were able to take them into its care.

The donkeys named Happiness, Geoffrey, Nincompoop and Bill will remain in the New Arrivals part of the sanctuary as they undergo tests and treatments to prepare them for life at the Sanctuary. The young donkeys are not used to being handled, so the charity’s experienced grooms are helping them settle in and giving them the love and care they deserve.

The four young donkeys will go through routine health checks before being introduced to a suitable herd.

Mark Kerr, donkey welfare adviser at The Donkey Sanctuary says: “It’s a wonderful thing we can do for these young donkeys whose futures looked uncertain – give them a safe and loving home for the rest of their lives.

“Owning donkeys can be a hugely rewarding experience and a wonderful privilege, however they require caring and compassionate management to ensure they lead healthy and enriched lives. The Donkey Sanctuary and its welfare advisers are always on hand to offer any support and advice that owners may need.”

As with all donkeys who come into the care of The Donkey Sanctuary, the group will go through routine health checks. They will also be visited by a farrier, receive any vaccinations that are needed, and will be given a settling in period on their own before being introduced to a suitable herd for a safe and secure future.
