Our international work champions the quality of life for donkeys and the communities who live alongside them.
We try to help and make a lasting difference to the 40 million donkeys spread across the globe.
Our international work is highly dynamic and tackles ongoing chronic problems and short term emergencies.
The biggest threat to donkey welfare
The scale and impact of the donkey skin trade makes it the most significant challenge to donkey welfare we have ever faced.
This is a crisis we can't ignore, and The Donkey Sanctuary is calling for an immediate halt to the global trade in donkey skins until it can prove humane, sustainable and safe.
Working across the globe
From sharing expertise to training harness makers and vets, we are helping improve donkey welfare across the continent.
We work to ensure donkeys across the Americas are nurtured and well looked after, helping them form a vital part of local communities.
