Donkey assisted therapy
Welcome to Manchester
We offer donkey assisted interaction to local school children with additional needs. If you know someone who would benefit, then call the team on 0161 301 4051.
Come and meet our wonderful team of donkeys - they love to meet new people and you can discover their unique characters and stories.
- Gift shop
- Car park
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.
