The KSPCA is keen on the welfare of donkeys in Kenya. Our Naivasha team has been going to the fields and educating donkey owners on proper harnessing.
The donkeys are in bad condition due to lack of proper harness, overloading and overworking.
Many owners use nylon materials thus causing rubbing and bad fitting of the rope which passes on the spinal region ends up causing wounds.
The KSPCA field officers educated the owners on use of local available materials made of cotton as padding, instead of nylon and rubber materials.
