Egypt: Care for animals at the Pyramids

??????????????

ESAF (Egyptian Society of Animal Friends) held a Pyramids Clinic on Wednesday, January 8 and Saturday January 11, 2014, to provide food and vet care to the Pyramids animals. The horses, donkeys, and camels are used to give rides to tourists, but during times when tourists are few, their owners suffer economic hardship, and the animals need extra help.

ESAF provided fresh greens to the animals, as well as soft nosebands (to replace wire ones), and gave out educational brochures to the owners to improve the care of the animals. The vets treated any injuries and cared for the horses’ hooves and teeth. Around 90 animals were fed and cared for.

 

Ahmed El Sherbiny thanks Sue Evans for her sponsorship of the Pyramids Clinics.

  1. Wire nosebands! That sounds horrific. But, it is good to see such kindness being shown to these beautiful animals. Good for the ESAF 🙂
