Turns tears of pain
into tears of joy
Our Work Worldwide
The Donkey Sanctuary supports projects in 35 countries worldwide.
Every day we feel privileged to help sick, unwanted and hard-working donkeys, and the people who rely on them, thanks to incredible donations from people like you.
Protecting the sick and unwanted
Donkeys and mules are stoical and hardworking creatures and these traits are often taken advantage of. The Donkey Sanctuary reaches out to those in greatest need through the provision of permanent refuge and veterinary services to alleviate their suffering.
Helping donkeys transform lives
The amazing contribution donkeys and mules make to humanity is not always recognised.
We are a devoted champion of these beautiful creatures and people’s lives are transformed everyday through our hands-on approach to education and training, and donkey assisted therapy
Over 50 million donkeys and mules exist in the world. Many need care and protection from a life of suffering and neglect, whilst others have a vital role to play in human survival and happiness; they are at the heart of everything we do at The Donkey Sanctuary.
