Egypt- Ace The Mule
For over twenty years they have been in Egypt helping the local animals when they need it most. This is alongside preventative treatments and education, delivering a long term impact on the welfare of working animals and the people that depend on them so greatly for their livelihoods. These hard working animals often lack the most basic veterinary care. Many are neglected or mistreated, not through malice, but due to lack of understanding or provisions.
The dedicated team of vets treat and save the lives of thousands of animals all year round. They have a walk-in clinic, a hospital to perform crucial surgeries and 25 stables that allow the animals to rest from their working lives where they can recover. They closely monitor them, provide regular treatments and ensure their progress back to health.
I stayed at ACE for just over a week. During that time, I witnessed some of the most horrendous animal cruelty and neglect I had ever seen however I also witnessed the tireless committed work that the staff did within the local community of Luxor. The compassion and love for the animals from the staff at ACE was so inspiring.
This world needs more compassionate people to help stop the negate and cruelty of animals world wide. For more information about ACE, see their website. With every print purchase 5% of the sale will be donated to ACE.
