From ANIMAL PEOPLE, January/February 2006:
LONDON–The Brooke Hospital for Animals
on December 14 pledged to invest £281,000 over
the next three years to assist Safe Haven for
Donkeys in the Holy Land.
Founded in 2000 by former British Airways
flight attendant and Jerusalem SPCA volunteer
Lucy Fensom, Safe Haven has about 90 donkeys
rescued from Israel and Palestine in sanctuary
care, and in August 2005 added a clinic site at
the village of Tayibe, near the Palestinian
border, which provides basic care to donkeys
from either side.
Safe Haven won start-up help from the
World Society for the Protection of Animals, but
had struggled ever since, fundraising manager
Wendy Ahl told ANIMAL PEOPLE.
