There are lots of star qualities about this little donkey. He has the loudest bray of his herd, the cutest, fluffiest nose and a big personality to match. You definitely know its feeding time when you can hear Benjy braying with excitement.

Benjy joined our Belfast centre in 2010 along with his best friend and fellow adoption donkey Alfie. They spend much of their time together, all day and all night.

If you love the sound of a wonderful bray, why not adopt Benjy today? Or maybe you know someone else who would love to have this vocal little donkey as part of their family? Adopt Benjy today as a gift that keeps on giving.

Is Benjy your perfect match?
