Help Black Beauty Ranch to Rescue Donkeys

Source: [email protected] 

Members of The Fund for Animals are undoubtedly familiar with the rescue of thirteen tiger and leopard cubs from a private home in California just a few weeks ago. The young cubs were found among dozens of dead tiger carcasses, including 58 baby tigers in a freezer, but they were rescued and taken to The Fund for Animals' Wildlife Rehabilitation Center near San Diego.

Riverside County Animal Control also confiscated four burros from the residence. One of these poor animals was seen on national television being dragged from the property because his hooves were overgrown and he was apparently unable to walk. The Fund for Animals offered to adopt the burros and pay for all expenses to bring them to Black Beauty Ranch, our 1,600-acre sanctuary in Texas where hundreds of burros and other rescued animals enjoy safety, lush grasslands, and the best care available.

Unfortunately, county officials have decided not to allow The Fund for Animals to adopt the burros, but instead to send them to auction where they will be sold to the highest bidder and their fate will be unknown. Please call the animal shelter immediately, and tell them that after what these poor burros have gone through, they deserve a special home like The Fund for Animals' Black Beauty Ranch. Tell them you do not want these burros going to auction, where they could end up abused, neglected, or even sold to slaughterhouses.

The burros could go to auction any day! Call Riverside County Animal Control at (909) 358-7387, and follow the menu for Animal Services to speak with a live operator. You can also send a fax to (909) 358-7310. Thank you for your help.
