Nestling at the foothills of the Alps is our Italian Sanctuary Il Rifugio degli Asinelli. Like all farms and woodlands they have a variety of animals and insects. Some are welcome, others not quite so much!

Meeting our Italian team

I was very lucky to be able to visit our Sanctuary in Northern Italy, Il Rifugio degli Asinelli, recently.

The Sanctuary is in an area which seems to belong on a film set, beautiful trees and lush green open spaces but most impressive of all, it is set under of the most majestic foothills of the Alps. Il Rifugio is home to 150 rescued donkeys and mules. I met number of the staff and of course the gorgeous long eared residents who all made me feel very welcome; I would have stayed permanently if allowed!
