Godavari, July 9, 2012 – Rani (Nepali for ‘Queen’) is a 15 years old, malnourished donkey who was abandoned in a brick factory when she became too thin and weak to work. Rani is one of the nine newcomers who now receive ‘royal treatment’ at the Godavari Donkey Sanctuary. When the brick season ended last month a number of equines were abandoned or handed over to Animal Nepal.
Rani is joined by Star, a male 11 year old, who suffers from terrible saddle wounds. Another new resident is Marwari, a 14 year old male mule, whose hoofs are overgrown and suffers from malnutrition. Janet is a 15 year old blind female donkey, who finally will be allowed to stop hauling bricks.
Among the nine newcomers one also finds Rajani, a 12 year old male donkey, suffering from lameness, weakness and malnutrition. Similarly, Chang is a 14 year old female donkey whose saddle wound had become so badly infected she was oozing puss. She and Samir, a 10 year old male donkey, suffering from skin problems and malnutrition, now all will be given the best care possible, hoping they will be allowed to spend a few happy years in our sanctuary.
We also received mother donkey Rose and daughter Puffin, who were rescued by Beverly Waymark and spend two wonderful years at her residence.
Animal Nepal rented a temporary accommodation for some of the newcomers. They will move to the new sanctuary facilities once they are ready.
