McGregor. – As an up close and personal kinda girl, I loved my visit to the Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary near McGregor, which provides a permanent refuge for abused, neglected and elderly donkeys. Here they are given the opportunity to live out their lives with respect and dignity, surrounded by their own kind, in a protective and natural environment.
I sponsor a Donkey called SHEILA, who was bred as meat for the illegal and nasty canned lion hunting market. Given that this was her soul purpose in life, she had her diet supplemented with hormones and fat bulkers to maximise her value and weight, and was horribly treated. She was one of the lucky ones, and is now at the Sanctuary under the care of Dr Johan and Annemarie van Zijl.
