A dear little donkey called Barney has benefited from the kindness of animal lovers who raised over €14,800 to fund his sight-saving surgery.
The abandoned donkey was recently taken in by the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary after being found wandering on the side of a hill.
The terrified animal was blinded by cataracts and needed urgent surgery.
But the cost of the treatment was putting the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary under extreme pressure. They appealed to their supporters to help contribute what they could to help with the surgery, aftercare and travel expenses.
Barney’s story touched hundreds of people’s hearts and an incredible €14,821 was raised in just a few weeks.
Barney underwent the vital surgery in England and vets are hopeful that he will soon see once again.
Danny and Sandra Curran thanked all their supporters and said: “We are so excited for brave little Barney to have this miraculous chance to see properly once again.”
“It is now over to his veterinary team to organise the next step in his journey.”Tags:
