Austin Standard DOnk


Austin is a brown Standard donkey who was born in 2010. He and his brother, Bentley, came to The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada in 2012 when their caregivers decided to sell the farm.

Neither donkey had much handling before coming to the DSC, so when they first arrived, both Austin and Bentley were extremely fearful of people. Austin in particular can be quite shy. Their training will include lots of patient handling by DSC staff and volunteers, so they may learn that being with people isn’t threatening.

Austin and Bentley will remain under the protection and care of The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada for the remainder of their lives.
