How does a discarded poultry farm become a donkey sanctuary? Easy peasy, with lots of disinfectant and a few bottles of paint!
After the rescue of nine working equines from brick factories in May, Animal Nepal has been on the look out for a place to keep the healthy donkeys. Since the newcomers are in a bad state they need all the space and attention they can get to fully recoverm without being dominated by healthy ones.
We found a discarded chicken farm, complete with light bulbs. Apart from a large building and staff quarters, it came with a large plot of grazing land. The place was on rent, and came with a great caretaker, Kaman Singh.
By now the equines have settled in, and enjoy the extra space. Especially our youngest donkey, Victory, loves running around like a mad dog. Anyone who likes to come and see the new place is welcome!
