Help Us

Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary (Oxfordshire, England) relies on the generosity of volunteers and supporters in order to continue rescuing and caring for donkeys in need of a good home and in many cases also with many other needs such as immediate veterinary care. There are many ways to help the donkeys, including:

  • Make a donation (single or regular donations are much appreciated)
  • Buy products from our gift shop, which sells Christmas cards, plates and other ceramics, clothing, small donkey toys and books and other items.
  • Shop online via  To help us log on to easyfundraising, nominate Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary as your chosen charity, then purchase whatever you would buy anyway from the many well-known companies featured e.g. Amazon, Marks & Spencer, Argos etc.. Their small contributions to us as a result of your purchases really add up to make a real difference to our work for the donkeys. 
  • Adopt a donkey
  • Sponsor a donkey
  • Leave a legacy in your will or make a donation in memoriam.
  • Volunteer to help at Island Farm donkey sanctuary (there are lots of things we need help with, e.g. at events, yard work, indoor / desk tasks, fundraising activities and so on)
  • Foster donkeys (foster carers facilities are thoroughly checked)
