Join us for our open days during April - September
Touch, hold, feel, hug for free
Our Derbyshire Centre is open once a month from April - September only.
We also hold a number events and courses throughout the year.
During the six months while this centre is open, please join us for our open days to meet the staff and our wonderful team of donkeys.
- Dog friendly
We ask that you do not feed the donkeys as it encourages them to expect food from everyone and fingers can look deceptively like carrots to a donkey! Kindly pass any treats to staff who will ensure they are distributed to the donkeys at feeding time.
No smoking policy
Smoking is not allowed in any areas of high fire risk. Please take notice of all "No Smoking" signs around The Donkey Sanctuary.
Volunteer - get involved
If you have some spare time and would like to become more involved in our work, find out what volunteer opportunities we have available.
- Car park (limited spaces)
- Group visits (prior booking)
We welcome many different groups to our Derbyshire Centre, including school visits. Please contact us on 01395 578222 if you are interested in organising a group visit.
