Donkeys at the National Pet Show, Birmingham

Some of our donkeys will be at the National Pet Show in Birmingham this weekend. The event takes place at the NEC Birmingham this weekend, 7-8 November 2015. There is a huge variety of animals here including dogs, cats, alpacas, rabbits and, of course, some very special donkeys.  There will be talks by experts in different types of animals, even crocodiles! Other attractions include rabbit show jumping and duck herding.

With well over 100 donkeys living at Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary at the moment, only a few representatives travel to any one event. This time our little group includes Monty, Chocolate (who is an adoption donkey, by the way), Charlie (you can also adopt Charlie) and Charlie ‘North’.

When they aren’t busy eating the donkeys take an interest in what is going on.

"What's going on over there?"
“What’s happening over there? … Looks interesting …”

Merry Christmas 2014

As 2014 comes to an end it’s time to thank all our friends and supporters for the help, good wishes and contributions of various kinds that we have received this year. Our Christmas message is conveyed by Jack and Charlie, two of our popular adoption donkeys, who are pictured below complete with the cheerful Santa hat stylishly modelled by Jack.

We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and good health and fortune in 2015.
