Over 70 donkeys could have to be put down if a Donegal sanctuary does not raise additional funding.
Donegal Donkey Sanctuary in Raphoe is facing closure due to financial pressures and this week warned that they need to raise €25,000 to keep the facility open.
If this happens, this means that more than 70 donkeys will have to be put down, according to the Irish Times.
The centre has been open for over 10 years and has rehomed over 600 donkeys in that time.
However, a spokesperson for the centre said that increasing administration and running costs have resulted in the centre struggling to make ends meet.
The sanctuary has set up a Go Fund Me page with the hopes of reaching their target of €25,000, which they hope will save the facility and the donkeys.
