We are transforming the lives of donkeys in need worldwide by fostering greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships.

Our vision

A world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued.

Our impact

Wherever we find a donkey in need, we try to help.

Through a challenging 2020 we:

  • Took in 137 relinquishments
  • Rehomed 94 donkeys, bringing the total number of donkeys in our rehoming scheme to 1,467
  • Launched a Covid Emergency Response Fund, providing swift and vital support to organisations helping donkeys in urgent need
  • Published several peer-reviewed papers, helping to boost the knowledge and status of donkeys across the globe.

Our values

Compassion: We help donkeys, and the people who rely on them for their livelihoods, to cope with physical, mental and emotional challenges.

Collaboration: We treat every interaction as a two-way opportunity to learn and teach. Together, we can help our networks of partners, communities and individuals become donkey welfare ambassadors where they live and work.

Creativity: The need for our work is immense, but our resources are finite. This means that we must exercise creativity to deliver our vision.
