Help us to protect donkeys and mules
The Donkey Sanctuary has an excellent veterinary hospital designed specifically for treating donkeys. Through our experience we have gained considerable knowledge on donkey care and our veterinary staff are happy to liaise with vets in Ireland, giving advice as required. UK vets and vets abroad should contact our UK headquarters - details at foot of this page. Through years of working with donkeys, our staff are able to impart this knowledge at veterinary conferences, thereby improving the treatment given to donkeys world-wide.
The Donkey Sanctuary has a dedicated team of staff throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe who investigate reports of cruelty to or neglect of donkeys.
As a direct consequence of members of the public getting in touch, many donkeys and mules are rescued and saved from further suffering.
If in doubt, always contact us and set your mind at rest by calling +353 022 49013, Monday-Friday, 9.00 am - 4.30 pm (answerphone service outside of these hours).
