Best Friends

Eeyore is a happy bright donkey who loves to roll his treat ball around the yard with his best friend Pooh.

He can be a little timid at first but knowing that his best friend is nearby gives him all the bravery he needs. He absolutely loves meeting new people who come to visit him every day at him home at our Ivybridge centre.

Eeyore also likes the quiet life, so much so that even his own bray is as quiet as they get, sometimes there isn’t even any noise at all!

Could Eeyore be the donkey for you or would he suit someone you know? Adopt him today!

Is Eeyore your perfect match?
