Vital Information

Cisco is the only miniature donkey on the adoption scheme. But what he doesn’t have in height he makes up for in personality.

He was brought over from the States to be a breeding donkey, and when things didn’t work out for him he joined us. He now lives at our centre in Birmingham along with other adoption donkeys Jimmy, Shocks and Oscar.

Cisco’s a kind and gentle donkey who loves meeting new people at county shows and when visiting residential homes and schools. But when he’s back in the yard he loves to make sure his friends know who’s boss!

Why not adopt this small but mighty miniature donkey for someone you love or as a treat for yourself.
