With just a few weeks to Christmas can you help enrich the lives of our donkeys and mules during the winter months? We are looking to give our 8 farms and 2 new arrival units 100 special gifts each designed to stimulate and encourage social interaction between each other... and the grooms!
Donkeys and mules are both intelligent and social animals. And as such, they require more than just food and shelter. They also need company and mental stimulation especially over the winter months when they are being housed in their warm and dry barns and away from their summer grazing.
A bored donkey or mule is not a happy animal and this can affect their mental and emotional health leading to behavioural problems.
With 2,459 animals currently in our care, would you like to make a difference to their lives?
It’s a tall order, but we are looking to raise £1,600 by Christmas Eve.
Working with Town and Country Supplies, we have managed to get the cost down.
Each gift costs just £6 and if you also choose to give gift aid with your donation, our donkeys and mules will receive an extra £1.69 for every £6 donated.
It only takes 267 people to donate £6 each for us to be able to buy these gifts for our donkeys and mules.
Can you be one of those people to make a donkey's wish come true this Christmas?
Donate by text
If you reside in the UK, making a donation really couldn’t be easier, it's now possible to donate by text. Simply send a text message to 70070 saying DONK66 plus the amount you wish to donate. JustTextGiving by Vodafone is free for you and the charity you are supporting.
Should we exceed the amount needed for the Christmas presents, any surplus donations will go towards caring for over 2,400 donkeys, mules and ponies currently in our care.
