Il Rifugio degli Asinelli was established in 2006 and is a subsidiary of The Donkey Sanctuary, UK.
Over 50 million donkeys and mules exist in the world. Many need care and protection from a life of suffering and neglect, whilst others have a vital role to play in human survival and happiness – they are at the heart of everything we do here at Il Rifugio degli Asinelli.
