A warm welcome to five new donkeys.

In the summer of 2012, we welcomed five new donkeys to the Sanctuary. In late July, Austin and Bentley arrived, and in August 2012, Sophie, Joker and Kylie were welcomed. Since their arrival, all of these donkeys have become much more accustomed to the gentle care and handling that is part of the life-long care that each and every donkey and mule receives while under the protection of the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada. We are so pleased to see all of these new donkeys settle into their new lives here.

We'll be inputting their bios and some individual portraits over the next day or so, so check back - and maybe you might even think about sponsoring one of them - for yourself, or, it's never too early to think about Christmas gift sponsorships!
