Celebrate Mother's Day

Looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift? This Mother’s Day, make Mum really proud.

Mother’s Day is about saying thank you to the wonderful ladies in our lives. This year, celebrate Mother’s Day with a truly thoughtful gift that’ll create exciting new memories for your mum and a friend for life. Plus, by adopting a donkey as a gift you’ll guarantee their future with us.

Donkeys come into our care for all sorts of different reasons – neglect, abandonment or simply because their owners can no longer care for them. There are currently over 6,000 mules and donkeys who are in our care in the UK and across Europe. It’s a big commitment – in both time and resources – but The Donkey Sanctuary is here for donkeys and mules in need of sanctuary. We couldn’t do this, however, without the loyal and loving support of our followers. It’s thanks to you that we can keep our donkeys safe, warm and, most importantly, loved.

Join the adoption family

By adopting a donkey as a gift, your mum will become part of the adoption family.

There are 23 donkeys to choose from, living in one of our six centres across the UK.

It costs £24 to adopt a donkey – just £2 a month – and in return your mum will receive:

  • A framed portrait
  • Four beautiful postcards
  • A certificate of adoption
  • Her donkey’s story
  • And regular updates about her adoption donkey
  • She can also visit her donkey or follow their antics on social media.

The perfect last minute gift

You can easily purchase an adoption online and download a certificate at home, making an adoption donkey the perfect last minute gift – don’t worry, we won’t tell, mum’s the word!
