    First and foremost, thank you for being a loyal St. Jude supporter. Every donation counts and every one is appreciated!

    We contacted the event organizers after seeing your post and a petition that was in circulation. The organizers of this event felt that they always handled their animals humanely, but decided to eliminate the donkey roping event because they did not want any donors to be concerned. They have already modified their flyers and they would certainly appreciate any donations to their event benefiting the kids of St. Jude.

    Thank you again!

    Thank you! God bless you for taking this extra step to stop this horrible abuse of Donkey Roping. I will pass this on to all of the supporters of treating donkeys with ethical care. Melody Johnson,

UPDATE 3/26/27

I contacted St. Jude Hospital yesterday and they were not aware of this event. We have been donating to St. Jude’s children’s hospital for years. They are going to ask for a cease as this is not what they are about. I called the event planner of this at the cowboy church yesterday too and he was rude and said he was not stopping this event. Please sign the petions inside my blog where it say select Take Action. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody

SELECT Take Action to stop donkey roping and please re-blog. It is very difficult to donkeys trust humans again after these events! Donkey roping usually ends up seriously hurting the donkey and they are put down. The reasons they are used for roping is in extreme fearful places donkeys will FREEZE, making it easier for the roper to practice on.

SELECT Take Action sign and share the SAFE ACT (reblog).

Rio says “Save a mini donkey and standard donkey and ride a Mammoth donkey” Weight limit of riding any donkey is 20% including the saddle. To learn more about what I do to educate and train owners to help a owner teach their donkey to trust again, pick up the hooves without fighting, stand ground tied, send into a stall and turn around to take off the halter, go for a walk and more please go DONKEYWHISPERERFARM.COM.

        Hopefully we can stop these people. St. Judes should also be notified, i am sure they don’t want their names associated with such cruelty

    My name is Maria Hubbard, Associate Director HR/Learning and Organization Development at ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Word of this event has reached our National Executive Office and we have an official statement to share with you.

    “Thank you for sharing your concerns with us. St. Jude accepts donations from people of all walks of life, professions and backgrounds who desire to help our life-saving mission. Because of that support, no family will ever receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

    “The event you are referencing is not organized or sponsored by St. Jude. The event organizers have confirmed that the flyer is inaccurate, and there is to be no donkey roping element to the event and no animals are to be harmed. For further questions or concerns about the event, please contact the event organizers directly.

    “Thank you for reaching out to us on this matter, and for your continued support of the patients and families of St. Jude.”

      Dear Maria Hubbard,

      I did contact the event planners and I was told it is none of my business. They are giving the funds to your organization and showing all proceeds are going to St. Judes. I would think this is not good for contributions to St. Jude, I suggest you contact them as you have more authority over using your business name than I do.

      Will you contact the Cowboy Church and send them this letter? I called you as my husband and I have been faithful to your organization to save children for years. I did not believe you were aware of this event. Now we need you to contact the people running this fund raiser and let them know you want your name removed from the flyer. Are you accepting money from the Cowboy Church roping donkeys?

      Respectfully,
      Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC
      Owner and worldwide trainer of owners of Donkeys, mules and horses.
