Aitana: update

First, I’d like to praise the Donkey Sanctuary Sidmouth and the Refugio del Burrito in Spain for their really kind support and concern regarding Aitana. Particular thanks to Nikki in Sidmouth for responding to enquiries from my daughter Alys (as I had been having phone signal problems earlier in the week); Cecilio from Refugio del Burrito, who has taken time to get involved with connecting people regarding Aitana while he is on an important donkey rescue assignment in north eastern Spain; and to Dorothea who Cecilio has put me in touch with in this province and is waiting to see this update so she might comment. 1,204 more words
