massive loss of blood.
Following this incident and in light of the fact that like their human
owners, pets in Israel’s south are also under the constant rocket threat,
the Agriculture Ministry has decided it would help pay for the medical care
of dogs and cats injured by rocket fire from Gaza.
“One of the main problems arising from the treatment of wounded animals is

owners are not compensated for medical treatment of the animal,” said Dganit
Ben-Dov, DVM, the Veterinary Services official in charge of enforcing the

Lucy Fensom, founder of Safe Haven For Donkeys In The Holy Land (SHADH) –
based at Moshav Gan Yoshiyya, near the towns of Netanya and Hadera in Israel.
Many have asked whether Lucy, her workers and the donkeys are safe during
the present troubles in Gaza. We would like to reassure you all that the
sanctuary is a considerable distance from Gaza and so everyone is at present
unaffected. Of course, our hearts go out to all the people and animals
affected and we pray that a peaceful solution will soon be reached.
In the meantime, Lucy and the team continue to reach out to donkeys, mules
and horses in Israel and the West Bank and your help is still very much
needed. To make a donation, visit our home page. Thank you for your support.
