Help us protect donkeys and mules around the world
Want to see what our donkeys get up to every day? We have a number of live webcams situated around the Sanctuary so you can watch donkeys live as they eat, play and interact with visitors. There’s plenty to watch on the donkey webcams, and you never know what they’ll get up to! Choose from one of the donkey webcams below to stream and watch our donkeys online.
Main barn donkeys
Slade House Farm is the only farm open to the general public. It is home to about 500 of our donkeys who live in small groups. This group of donkeys live in the main barn and have a yard and paddock to roam freely in. Choose this webcam to see what they get up to in their barn.
Main barn donkeys
An outside view of our main barn donkeys who live at the heart of the Sanctuary. In the summer months you can watch donkeys grazing in their fields and during the winter months we turn the camera around so you can watch our donkeys live as they stay in the warm barn out of the rain and snow.
Buffalo Barn donkeys
Don’t miss this donkey webcam situated at Buffalo Barn along Walk C. It is home to our herd of gentle giants, the French Poitou donkeys. The tallest in the group stands over 16hh and the smallest in the group is Barney, a standard-sized donkey but with plenty of character. Choose this webcam to stream all the action from our donkey goliaths.
Shelter 1 donkeys
Shelter 1 is home to a group of very friendly donkeys who support events, activities and education here at the Sanctuary. This group of donkeys, including Barney, Mopsy and Bramble, love meeting new people. Stream our Shelter 1 donkeys online to see them at play.
Adoption shelter - Star and Little Vijay
If you adopt Little Vijay or Star then this is the camera for you. Situated at Beach Boxes in the heart of the Sidmouth Sanctuary, Star is our miniature adoption donkey who lives with his miniature mum, Twiggy, and their small, but perfectly formed, friends. Little Vijay has now retired from his role as an assisted therapy riding donkey and is loving having more free time to meet visitors and hang out with his donkey friends.
Other adoption donkeys, Timothy and Walter are close by at Cottage Barn, while visitors can find Teddy at Shelter 3, Millie at Shelter 6 and Aramis at Shelter 5. All are an easy walk from the centre of the Sidmouth Sanctuary. We also offer Meet the Groom sessions at each paddock so you can find out lots more about the adoption donkeys. More details can be found at the Visitors' Centre.
