Can you give us the gift of time?
The gift of time
Our volunteers are our true champions giving the precious gift of their time.
Would you like to join this incredible team of people devoted to donkeys and mules in the UK?
Working alongside us your contribution will be hugely valued and will directly enhance the experience of our beautiful donkeys and supporters alike.
Want to help?
If you have some spare time, and would like to find out about how you could become more involved in our work, we would love to hear from you.
Don’t worry if you have no previous experience working with equines. As long as you are aged 16 or over, are enthusiastic and have regular free time you can offer us, then we would love for you to join us. If you would like to find out more information about volunteering at The Donkey Sanctuary please call us on 01395 578222 or send an email to us.
