Abandoned by his previous owner, Harbin was found on a roadside with seven other donkeys in December 2014. Since being rescued, Harbin has come a long way and now lives at our centre near Leeds. This amazing little donkey helps children and adults with additional needs.

Harbin is a bright, fun-loving donkey with an irresistible teddy bear face. He loves human contact so much that his grooms are convinced he would rather hang out with them in the staff room at break times.

Add this fun-loving donkey to your family by adopting him today.
