Valentine's Gift

If you are looking to surprise your loved one with something a little different this Valentine’s Day, adopting a donkey is just what you are looking for!

Our donkeys are all adorable so are guaranteed to make the heart melt; and as our charity relies entirely on donations, the gift you choose will have great meaning as it enables us to protect donkeys from cruelty and neglect and to provide homes for those that are in need of protective care and those that can no longer be cared for by their owners.

For just €20 you could make a real difference and you will also receive:
