As we come to the end of 2011, we've put together a compilation of images taken at the Sanctuary to thank you all for your support throughout the year.
Whilst 2011 brought us sadness with the loss of Elisabeth Svendsen, the joy of new life was born to mares who came into our care already in foal.
Since the beginning of this year over 500 donkeys and mules have come through our gates all being given sanctuary for life. Many of them have come from much loved homes but due to the financial climate, their owners were faced with an incredibly hard decision to part with them.
With your support we are able to provide care to our ever growing family of 2,400 donkeys and mules spread across eight farms in Devon, Dorset and Derbyshire.
On behalf of all our donkeys and staff we would like to wish you all a happy Christmas.
