As a team of animals lovers, the EWN has proudly donated to the vet bills and recovery costs of Olivia, a donkey in need at Mijas’ Donkey Dreamland.
Olivia is, unfortunately, one of the worst rescue cases they have come across since the sanctuary was formed some 18 months ago. She was found tied up in a field with no grazing and surrounded by dogs. The dogs were fed insufficient basic dry dog food and that is also all Olivia had to eat and the dogs probably attacked her because they were trying to protect their food.

She also has a problem with her legs. Her tendons have contracted and she finds
walking very difficult and painful. Olivia will need surgery to get the “fixing” process started.
Now on her way to recovery, Donkey Dreamland needs funds to help with the rising vet and recovery costs for Olivia – a Go Fund Me that has already raised €2,375 of their €3,190 target.
The charity provides a home for donkeys free from pain and suffering, surrounded by people who offer love and respect in a calm and tranquil setting in Mijas.
Throughout history donkeys have served us well, worked hard and have, at times, been abused. Donkey Dreamland aims to restore their dignity, whilst providing support and understanding of their plight through education and interaction.
If you would like to donate to Olivia and her recovery, visit her Go Fund Me page here.
PS. Have you considered becoming a team member? This involves joining the Donkey Dreamland team and paying just €1 per month in addition to whatever you may already donate.
€1 per month is less than the price of a cup of coffee, and most of us would not even notice this amount each month but, whilst it does not seem to be much, if all of the charity’s followers and supporters became part of the team it would make a huge difference for the donkeys and the sanctuary.
