Founded in 1973 and now one of the largest equine charities in the world the Donkey Sanctuary is urgently appealing for new fosterers across the UK to give a home to rescued donkeys. Since 2008 the numbers of donkeys being rescued or relinquished to the Sanctuary has almost doubled and the current global economic problems have had a serious effect on the animal charity.  The significantly increased intake figures have seen the charity's seven farms in Devon and Dorset fill to near capacity and the charity is looking to rehome over 2500 donkeys.  (Matt Cardy/Getty Images)
