Understanding your donkey
Can you offer a new home?
Rehoming donkeys and mules is one of the most amazing things you can do to help us
What we provide
Our welfare team provides support, help and advice to anyone involved in caring for or thinking of caring for donkeys and mules.
As well as a team based at the main Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon, there is a network of welfare officers throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe who are there to provide direct help and support to donkeys in need and to donkey owners both from our foster scheme or from private homes and organisations.
How we help
We help organise the relinquishment of donkeys into the Sanctuary care as well as oversee the fostering scheme. We are also the team to help if you see a donkey or mule in trouble.
