We have a very important question to ask you…
These 50 donkeys, who live in South Africa, were saved from the Chinese-led donkey genocide that is sweeping Africa. Jonno Sherwin, a kind-hearted South African outbid a Chinese syndicate that wanted to illegally slaughter the donkeys and send their skins to China to be boiled down for use in phony medicine.
Now Jonno is desperately trying to find homes for them because he simply doesn’t have the money to feed and care for them. That’s why we urgently need your help.

African people use donkeys as transport in tasks like fetching water. They are simple people and easily persuaded to sell their animals by Chinese buyers who offer hard cash. They don’t realise that in Africa, donkeys are worth more alive than dead because in places of poor roads and poverty, donkeys offer tremendous support to local communities.
In South Africa, if people won’t sell their donkeys, the Chinese arrange for them to be stolen.
Then, the poor creatures are led into the bush where men, often drunk, wait to slaughter them. First, they are clubbed and when they fall to the ground, they are often SKINNED ALIVE!
Make a Donation:
We have promised to fight for the 50 doomed donkeys and are desperately trying to raise the funds to keep them fed, housed and alive until loving homes can be found for them. We really, really need your help to do so. Please, if you possibly can, give generously to Network for Animals today so we can save these poor creatures from being skinned alive.
For the animals,
Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max)
Founder and CEO
P.S. We have instructed our team to persuade the South African government to stop the donkey genocide by banning the export of donkey skins. It may sound incredible, but as I write this, South Africa does not even have a Minister of the Environment; when the last one died, they did not replace her. That won’t stop us, with your help, we will find a way. Please give generously today.
