Once a week, a team of The Donkey Sanctuary's vets based in Mexico City battle their way through the thick heavy city traffic for three hours to reach Coacalco rubbish dump, where tatty, tired, donkeys desperately need first aid and some 'TLC'.
Welcome to The Donkey Sanctuary's press office based at the charity's main Sanctuary near Sidmouth in Devon.
In addition to sending out regular press releases, we handle all enquiries from the press and broadcast media about our worldwide work and can quickly source the information you need or put you in touch with expert spokespersons. We also have access to high quality images and film and would welcome you to visit our main Sanctuary to learn more about our work.

Latest press releases
The roaming donkey population in Grand Turk, Salt Cay and South Caicos will be under control as a result of excellent relations between the UK-based Donkey Sanctuary, Government Officials of Turks and Caicos and the TCSPCA.
Donkeys had been causing a nuisance on these islands due to high levels of breeding but since The Donkey Sanctuary charity has collaborated with the Department of Environmental Health and the TCSPCA, a full neutering programme has been put in place and plans are now underway to move donkeys to the Dominican Republic to help local families.
The Sidmouth-based Donkey Sanctuary is delighted to announce the arrival of a new foal.
Janet Thorne was born on Wednesday 6th May but because her mother, Karray, had to complete an isolation period, Janet has been out of the public eye until now. Karray arrived at The Donkey Sanctuary in foal back in September 2008.
The isolation period is essential to the health of all new intakes and resident donkeys on the farms. New donkeys are given time to settle in, have a full veterinary check, vaccinations, farriery and worming before they can join the rest of the herd.
