Acid attack pony, which received “the world’s first” operation, was named the rescue animal of the year


The rescued animal of the year was a pony badly burned during a suspicious acid attack.

Sanders was eight months old when he was found in Chesterfield with horrific burns on his tormented face that left him unable to open his eyes.
He was treated at Rainbow Equine Hospital in Malton, North Yorkshire, and underwent fish skin surgery in Wakefield.

Its new owner said. “She’s so deserving of this award. He is an absolute hero, a wonderful part of our family. ”

Sanders was named Rescue Live of the Year at the 2020 Daily Mirror Animal Hero Awards.
His owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “I do not know how anyone could do such a terrible thing with such a trustworthy, delicate little creature.

The whole world followed Sanders’s story, and donations from philanthropists to help him recover were flooded.

Jamie Peyton, who developed a fish skin transplant to treat animals burned by wildfires, flew from California for surgery in May 2018.

He worked with a team of veterinarians և plastic surgeons at Wakefield Pinderfield Hospital Burns, and the team worked on Cinders’ wounds.

They cleaned them before applying a tilapia bandage to Sanders’s face to promote fresh tissue growth.

His ongoing treatment became possible after he raised more than 000 17,000 from donations.
