Donkey assisted therapy
Our centre at Leeds will be closed on Wednesday 10 August and Wednesday 31 August while the staff are receiving animal behaviour training with the donkeys.
Welcome to Leeds
We offer donkey assisted interaction to local school children with additional needs. If you know someone who would benefit, then call the team on 0113 261 9249.
Come and meet our wonderful team of donkeys - they love to meet new people and you can discover their unique characters and stories.
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.
