Working donkeys suffer terrible abuse. They carry heavy things for long days, and are often not treated well. Just see Lance’s story, a donkey whose legs were badly injured and then was abandoned by his owner. Sadly, the same happened to Angelo, another working donkey who was also mistreated by his owners.

There was a rope tied around Angelo’s legs so tight that it lacerated through his skin to the bone. He was weak and in so much pain he could barely walk.

Thankfully, Animal Aid Unlimited was contacted and they came to the rescue of this sweet donkey! They’ve helped thousands and thousands of dogs and other animals. They were able to do the same for Angelo, by getting rid of the maggots on his wound, bandaging his legs, and making sure he felt loved during his recovery.

Because of their wonderful and compassionate care, Angelo has recovered and is doing so well! As Animal Aid explains in the caption of their video, “[working donkeys] often get poor quality food, no freedom to graze, (donkey owners rarely own land for donkeys to graze, so if they’re not chained they are roaming on busy streets), and very little rest.” Thankfully, there are organizations like them whose mission is to give animals “their freedom to be who they are, with purposes of their own that have nothing to do with serving humans. They are ‘ours’ only to cherish.”
