We have told you before about our fight to stop 50 donkeys being slaughtered. We’ve managed to save eight. Please, please – even if you have already been generous – will you help us save the others? The situation is desperate.
The 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. Thanks to the support of people like you, eight of the donkeys have found forever homes.
and it’s two minutes to midnight.

Donkeys are being wiped out in Africa by insatiable demand for their skins. African people use donkeys as transport in tasks such as water carriers. Simple rural people are 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.
If people won’t sell their donkeys, the Chinese arrange for them to be stolen. Then the poor creatures are led into the bush were men, often drunk, wait to slaughter them. First, they are clubbed and when they fall to the ground, they are skinned alive.

We are fighting for the 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 – even if you already have – 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 will do everything we can to save the 42 donkeys that are heading to death. We are working round the clock to find the money we need to keep them alive. Please help us by donating today.
