Donkeys and Co support Walter Golsteijn, installed in Gipcy in the center of France, in the Auvergne region, who does considerable work in protecting and safeguarding of donkeys. In 2007, this Dutchman created "Aide Aux Anes"(Help the Donkeys), an association aimed at improving living conditions of donkeys. He has just collected his 56th donkey. It is a shelter for abandoned, abused or retired donkeys. His Web site (www.aide-aux-anes.fr) allows to realize the difficulty of the work and courage of Walter who relies exclusively on donations
Donkeys and Co. is also a donor to The Donkey Sanctuary in Devon (England). Founded by Elisabeth Svendsen in 1969, this foster home has treated more than 14,000 donkeys.
