the Donkey Sanctuary
of Canada

The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada rescues and rehabilitates donkeys, mules and hinnies who have been neglected, abused or otherwise need Sanctuary. We also provide resources and education to the public and the equine world about the unique traits and needs of donkeys and donkey-hybrids.


Did you know…

When we hear the word “equine”, seldom are donkeys, mules and hinnies the animals that come to mind. Most people are surprised when they discover that Canada has a large population of donkeys, let alone a Sanctuary dedicated to their care.
