Many visitors to Pets Corner have met our handsome new donkey, George and heard his unmistakable bray! We were delighted to be able to offer George a home as he was rescued from owners who were unable to care for him. We are not an animal sanctuary and do not usually have the facilities to take on unwanted animals, so are happy that circumstances allowed us to take on another donkey.
When he came to us, George was suffering from overgrown hooves and a hoof condition called laminitis, which resulted in him having great difficulty in walking. We’ve been working closely with the vet and the farrier and are happy to report that George’s condition has improved greatly. However, as we try to correct the problem and strengthen his legs, it is important that he does not overexert himself. As a result, he is being carefully supervised and spends much of his day in Pets Corner while he builds his strength and confidence. Here in Pets Corner, he seems to be enjoying the company of our visitors and the new orphan lambs.
