- Llamas, Alpacas, Goats and Sheep Freed from Pending
Neglect Case Need a Home
Since January of 2012, Denkai Animal
Sanctuary has been working closely with the Clear Creek
County Sheriff's Department after they first seized a total
of 12 severely neglected donkeys and later more than 100
farm animals, equine and more near Idaho Springs.
Most of these animals entered Denkai in extremely poor
health, showing severe signs of malnourishment and some
couldn't even walk off the trailer, rather they fell. The
owner is being prosecuted for neglect and cruelty. The
animals will have their day in court against him.
In the meantime, those that have been
released by the Sheriff's department, MUST find home in the
next three weeks, Denkai does not have ownership of them,
but is working very closely with the Sheriff to place them
in homes rather than the Sheriff's department having to run
them through a local auction, where they will most likely
fall into the wrong hands. Denkai is donating our facility
and feed to help this animals for the next three weeks to
buy them this time and we need YOU to spread the word and
help us to place them too!
Denkai is extremely thankful to the Clear Creek County
Sheriff's department for their dedication to the animals
that need them and for the kindness they are showing this
special group. They truly care about their work and the
animals that need them.
