An unusual way of dealing with stress applied in new York. People who are tired of working, as well as patients who suffer from nervous disorders, helps vcluster. Stereotypes about these animals debunk the employees of the Park, where live-eared.
They are smart, calm and not stubborn – these donkeys thinks Steve STRT, caretaker Ulster Park in new York, and in the past programmer.

Donkeys help people with nervous and mental diseases. They happily welcome visitors and allow yourself to scratch, feed and lead the squad.
“We treat donkeys as pack animals. They are supposed to do just what we want. Although, when we call a cat, and he doesn’t come, we don’t call him stupid. We say, “it’s a cat,” explains Steve STRT.
Uslugowy Park lives at the expense of the savings of the owner and the donations of caring. Working in it volunteers.
“In cartoons donkeys constantly because. But I’ve never seen that and to me that doesn’t happen. They are very gentle animals, especially gentle with young children,” explains volunteer Patty Lundgren.
The first donkey Steve STRT acquired in 2012. He became interested in these animals, when his daughter was studying to be a vet. Since then the donkeys have won his heart. Now in Ulster Park residents more – the owner takes back the rescued animals.
