As an acknowledged centre of excellence for donkey health and welfare, we offer advice and training to donkey owners, veterinarians, dentists, farriers and students, both nationally and internationally.
At our new hospital we’ll build on this reputation and increase our training portfolio. We'll continue to offer our 24/7 advisory service to vets across the world.
If you can help with a donation, there’ll be training rooms for the continual professional development of our vets and nurses.
Our facilities will host veterinary and equine dentistry students on placement from national and international institutions, providing the world’s future vets with the highest knowledge of donkey welfare.
Of course, the real beneficiaries of this teaching and training are the donkeys–wherever they live around the world. With new hospital facilities we’ll uphold the legacy of our founder, Dr Elisabeth Svendsen, and fulfil her determination that, in everything The Donkey Sanctuary does, donkeys come first, second and third.
