How does one say to a donkey, “Thank you for letting me trim your hooves”? Animal Rahat’s experts have figured it out!

When improving the lives of donkeys in the communities around Maharashtra by providing free grooming, hoof trimming demonstrations, and medical care, Animal Rahat’s team knows adding a handful of treats to their field supplies is important. After working with a donkey, the experts make sure they offer the treats as a way of saying, “Thank you for letting me touch you.” This may make the donkey less fearful the next time the expert or their owner cares for them.

The pandemic is tragic for all species in India, but Animal Rahat is out there, doing all that it can. Check out these images of its experts offering treats after caring for donkeys in the field.
