Vital Information

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are sadly unable to dispatch our adoption packs at the moment. Rest assured your pack will be mailed in due course, and in the meantime you can download your gift adoption certificate to complete and print out.

If you have renewed your adoption for another year, you will still get your new donkey portraits - although sadly we are unable to send them to you yet due to restrictions around Covid-19. Your new portraits will be mailed to you as soon as possible.

If you are looking for a donkey who is full of fun, then look no further. Billy O is a confident, bright and curious donkey who is always finding ways to amuse himself.

He loves to run off with buckets in his mouth, and regularly tips over the wheelbarrows when no-one is watching. All this fun tires Billy O out and he can often be found having a snooze in the yard. It’s impossible not to love him.  

If you need a little fun in your life, then adopt the wonderful Billy O today and keep up to date with all his latest antics. Did you know you can adopt a donkey as a gift? Why not adopt Billy O for someone you love today.

Is Billy O your perfect match?
