Animal Rescue Organisation (ARO) joins Karoo Donkey Sanctuary in the fight against the Donkey Skin Trade
Did you know that while Rhino horn is still considered gold in China, the latest prize being sought in China is EJIAO which is a byproduct of boiled and soaked donkey skins.
This demand has led to the horrific slaughter of thousands of donkeys in South Africa over the past months. Sadly, the South African Government has seen fit to investigate how they can commercially farm donkeys for skins for Chinese export.
This is a horrific welfare crisis in SA which is vehemently condemned by all welfare groups.
Animal Rescue Organisation (ARO) recently raised over R260 000 for the rescue of 230 donkeys by the Karoo Donkey Sanctuary in Prince Albert and this rescue collaboration is critical to ensuring that animals are spoken for in South Africa.
The Karoo Donkey Sanctuary continue to be one of the biggest role players in the welfare of donkeys in SA.
There will be continued joint work done between ARO and other stake holders in the welfare sector going forward and your support is greatly appreciated.
All support of ARO’s continued donkey relief fund is welcome and banking information is:
