Donkeys in need

Lockie is one!
A year since the birth of our lockdown foal
Our sanctuary in Liscarroll is temporarily closed to the public. Caring for our donkeys is our priority and we know you understand. If our staff become sick or need to self-isolate our ability to care for our donkeys may be reduced.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are currently working with minimal staffing. We will endeavour to get your adoption pack through to you as quickly as possible or you can download an adoption certificate.
Thank you for your kind support at this time.
