Christmas cards for TOLFA

Milo is a rescue donkey from TOLFA India.  

TOLFA (Tree of life for Animals) is an animal hospital and sanctuary situated just outside the holy town of Pushkar in Rajasthan. I met Milo during my visit to TOLFA in January 2018 during which I took some photographs that became the inspiration for this painting.  Milo came into Tolfa's care 7 years ago after they rescued him with a front broken leg in which the bone had actually come out the skin. Obviously he recovered following the wonderful treatment of their medical team, but has been left with a wonky front leg.

He now has a home for life with TOLFA and lives with his donkey friends plus many other beautiful animals who have all been rescued and had their lives saved following accidents. 

A percentage of the profits raised from these cards will go to TOLFA.

 I met Molly during my visit to TOLFA in January 2018 during which I took some photographs that formed the inspiration for this painting. Molly previously had an owner but when she stopped producing milk they put her out on the street to fend for herself as is the sad fate of many female cows in India. Whilst roaming in busy Ajmer city she was clipped by a vehicle that damaged her hind leg and that's when the team at TOLFA were called to her rescue. Her leg has now healed but the injury means she has a permanent deformity and this is why she will stay at TOLFA for the rest of her days.
