The Donkey Sanctuary is delighted to announce the release of the new Donkey Care Handbook.
The Donkey Sanctuary’s 45 years of experience and knowledge in caring for donkeys has been gathered together in one easy to read guide that covers every aspect of understanding the needs of donkeys and mules and how to best provide the correct care for them.
This handbook combines all of The Donkey Sanctuary’s knowledge and experience to make a difference to the lives of donkeys all over the world even though the Sanctuary may never see or touch them. Along with in-depth specialist donkey care there are fascinating did you know facts such as; ‘There is estimated to be a world population of 44 million donkeys and 15 million mules and hinnies’.
Ben Hart, Donkey Care Training Manager says: “I am delighted to announce the release of the new Donkey Care Handbook. It’s everything you need to know for the lifelong welfare of your donkeys and mules. We wanted to produce a document that was invaluable to new and potential donkey owners so donkeys going to new homes outside the Sanctuary can be assured their new owners have the most up to date information to help provide a high quality home. We also wanted to ensure that staff, new and existing, had access to the information that forms the back bone of our principles of care here at the Sanctuary”.
It’s due to the collaboration of staff at The Donkey Sanctuary that this insightful handbook has been produced, allowing donkey carers’ worldwide access to the knowledge that has been gained from years of hands on experience.
The Donkey Care Handbook is freely accessible to anyone with an interest in donkeys.
