Jennet ( Female donkey)

Before coming to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) in the fall of 2021,

Chai lived on a farm in the Kawartha area, where she was housed with cattle as well as 10 of her donkey friends. Cayenne and her friends had no appropriate shelter, nutrition or care.

Within the herd, there were also intact male donkeys thus Chai arrived at the DSC with a foal, Nitro, by her side. We suspect that this foal was not Chai’s first baby, and a few month after her arrival we find out that it would also not be her last baby, as she gave birth to another boy in July of 2022.


When Chai arrived at the DSC she was quite unsure of her new life.

With time, patience, and gentle handling from our staff and volunteers, Chai has come out of her shell and has adjusted to her life at the DSC. Although she has made new friends, she can most often be found hanging out with her old friends,  Brie, Ariel and Cayenne.
