Where can I see my donkey?
Our adoption donkeys are very active in the local community, attending church services at Easter and Christmas as well at participating at local events such as country fairs and steam rallies. We will keep details of the forthcoming activities of the donkeys on the website so that you can see what they are up to and, of course, you could then go and see them in action.
Remember though, that arrangements might change at the last minute if a donkey is ill or otherwise unfit to travel so it is worth telephoning the Sanctuary on the day to check if your donkey will be attending a particular event, especially if you are going to make a long journey. This also applies if you want to come to the Sanctuary and visit your donkey. We would be thrilled to see you but do call or email to check that your special donkey will at home as we’d hate for you to be disappointed.
Some of the adoption donkeys also compete in donkey shows around the country, often with great success. We like to take our donkeys to competitions to demonstrate what a happy and healthy life a rescue donkey can lead as well as providing valuable publicity for our work. If you would like to share the excitement when your adoption donkey is at a show by coming along to watch, please let us know so that we can chat to you at the showground and make sure that you feel welcome and involved.
