A horse and two donkeys that were rehabilitated in the SPCA stables have found adoptive homes
Joy mingled with sadness as the SPCA team parted from the horse, Barak, and two donkeys that had undergone a long rehabilitation process in the SPCA stables and left for their new homes.
For many months we searched for an appropriate home for Barak, a seven year old horse, who had been abused before reaching the SPCA. After his recovery, he was castrated and vaccinated, underwent hoof trimming and shoeing and became a handsome and well-groomed horse. Following posting of his story on our Facebook page, the SPCA team made contact with the many places that offered to adopt him, in the hope of finding owners who understand how to raise horses and could provide all his needs. Finally, Barak was adopted by someone who had already adopted a mare from us in the past, and Barak joined her and other horses, donkeys and camels being raised on a well-run ranch.
The rehabilitation process of two especially adorable donkeys also came to a happy end, with their move to a ranch in the south of the country. The two donkeys, aged five and seven, were castrated, treated for worms and given all the necessary vaccinations, including rabies and Nile Fever, before joining other donkeys being raised by people who adopted them.
The adoptions of the horse and donkeys were carried out according to the longstanding SPCA adoption policy: In order to prevent them being given to a third party, thus increasing the chance of them returning to the circle of suffering, their new owners signed a document according to which they undertake to return the animals to the SPCA if, for any reason, they are unable to care for them.
