Sweet-natured Henry is a kind and loving donkey who is sure to make you smile. He has problems with his sight and has done amazingly well to adapt to finding his way around. He’s always listening out for the voices of his loving grooms and seeking the company of his good friends including fellow adoption donkey Tiny Tim. You can meet Henry at our Manchester centre.

At night, he will only settle down once he has had a goodnight cuddle with the sanctuary warden.

Can you or someone you know be a friend for Henry? Adopt this affectionate chap and make him part of your life today.
