Millions of helpless donkeys are at risk of being captured and slaughtered for their skins.

The growing demand for ‘ejiao’ – a substance derived from donkey skins that is used in traditional Chinese medicine and cosmetics, is leading to poachers cutting donkey populations by as much as 38 per cent in just two years.

SPANA has already made important steps towards halting this trade, but much more work still needs to be done.

We desperately need your help to train owners to keep donkeys safe from theft. Just £12.00 could contribute to this vital work and stop donkeys enduring the agony of transportation and slaughter as part of the donkey skins trade.

Every single action we take to make the world a better place for working animals depends on donations from caring people like you.
