Spud and Charlie find Foster Home

Last year Jacqui and Paul became the proud foster owners of beautiful donkeys Spud and Charlie. Spud and Charlie relocated to the scenic Galway where they are loved and adored.

If you are interested in fostering donkeys and have a minimum of one acre of land, shelter and an area of hard-standing then please call our welfare department on 022-49013.

By fostering donkeys you are creating space on our farms to rescue donkeys that are in need of sanctuary.

Davis and Phelan looking for a new home

Davis and Phelan are two male donkeys that were rescued separately by The Donkey Sanctuary in 2014. The two lovable rogues became best friends when they met here on one of our farms. Phelan is three years old and Davis is two years old. They are smaller than your average donkey in size.

They are a playful duo that are looking to go to a loving new home together. If you can offer them a home with love, attention and a minimum of 1 acre of land, a shelter and an area of hard standing we would love to hear from you!

Brigid's first birthday

Brigid is celebrating her first birthday this week! Brigid is foal to mother Sheena who we rescued in very poor condition in 2013. Luckily both mare and foal are healthy, happy donkeys now.

Last year we rescued 388 donkeys in total, 15 of those were mares that were in foal when they came into our care. We offer these foals sanctuary and guarantee them a life free from pain and suffering.

Update on Bevan

Bevan who was rescued in pitiful conditions in 2013 by The Donkey Sanctuary has had a long recovery process. He suffered terrible neglect and found it difficult to trust people at first but he gained confidence through his friend Craig. Craig and Bevan are the best of friends and are never apart!

Thank you most sincerely for your continued support and compassion. Without you we would not be able to continue, from everyone at The Donkey Sanctuary we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude.

Happy ending for Colin and Ronnie

Padre Pio Nursing Home in Churchtown, Co. Cork recently fostered two beautiful donkeys Colin and Ronnie. The donkeys' arrival was highly anticipated and they were welcomed by a large committee of senior citizens and staff.

Colin and Ronnie are thrilled to have a home to call their own. They receive a great deal of love and attention from everyone there and have been a great addition. The two donkeys enjoyed their first Christmas in Churchtown where they were greeted by Santa Clause and received treats for being so well behaved!

Valentine's Gift

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.
