Five rescued equines received a name for the first time in their life through the Name a Donkey Auction. The lucky ones are Elanor, Mox, Bella, Stella and Montana.
Amy Hitchcock named a gentle, 7 years old female mule ‘STELLA’. Just a few months ago, Stella could be found hauling bricks in the hot sun while suffering from respiratory problems and countless wounds. Now she enjoys her new life at the Godavari Donkey Sanctuary.
Toni Rapona won the bid to name a grand old lady ‘ELANOR’. The elderly equine was rescued form Badhikhel brick factory when she feel sick, which was why Animal Nepal provided her with a much deserved retirement.
Diana Argueta won the bid to call our most shy and beautiful 9 years old female donkey ‘BELLA’. Bella which means ‘beautiful’ in Spanish, and that’s exactly what she is. At the time of her rescue from a life hauling bricks she was badly wounded with a serious eye infection and hoof problems. At Animal Nepal’s Chobar Animal Sanctuary she is enjoying her new life in a healthy environment.
‘MONTANA’ was the name given to an 8 years old male horse by Toni Rapona, to honour the spirit of the wild herds of mustangs who still roam free in Montana, US. This reddish female horse fell inside the truck during the long journey from India to Nepal on the way to a brick factory. He was rescued by Animal Nepal and is enjoying a much better life at the Godavari Donkey Sanctuary.
Emma Moxon won the bid to name a gorgeous handicapped mule ‘MOX’. The young, mule suffered from bended legs and multiple injuries. Today he is enjoying his new life at Godavari Donkey Sanctuary with a significant improvement in his health.
Mobile Treatment at Dobighat and Afaldol
In August the Animal Nepal outreach team conducted mobile treatment at Dobighat and Afaldol where the dogs were treated from various health issues. During monsoon many dogs suffer from skin problems and bite wounds. Two dogs had to be taken to the Chobhar Animal Shelter.
One of them was Beta who suffers from a clouded eye and lameness. Another case was Kanchi who met with an accident many weeks ago. Till then a local middle aged woman kindly looked after Kanchi. Sadly help came too late as Kanchi’s pelvic bone was already displaced and euthanasia was the only humane solution.
Sundari is another dog that is treated regularly by us. Sundari (menaing beautiful in Nepali) is fully blind. She also suffers from skin problems which is why she was treated with Ivermectin by AN team.
