RESCUING & REHABILITATING DONKEYS SINCE 1970

DWWH intensive care unit operational again

DWWH intensive care unit is once again fully operational thanks to generous community donations and support from local businesses.

Back in April, a wind storm caused a huge gum tree to crash into our intensive care shed and yards which were severely damaged and narrowly missing donkeys Joseph and George.

PRD Nationwide Hunter came to the rescue with its Community Partnership Program.

It was the first time the program had assisted animals in need.

The PRD Hunter real estate team, based at East Maitland, was thrilled to meet the donkeys at the intensive care unit and inspect the damage to our shed and yards.

The enthusiastic PRD Hunter media team made a video, featuring donkey Joseph, for its Facebook page and every like raised $2 for DWWH.

The post received 166 likes, totalling $322, and along with $200 donation from PRD Hunter, DWWH received $522 towards repairs.

As a bonus, Kirkwood Produce Maitland generously donated straw for the intensive care donkeys.

DWWH founder Christine Berry recorded an interview with KOFM radio hosts Tanya and Steve, appealing for animal lovers everywhere to help the donkeys and was grateful for all the support from people around the region.
