Cleo the Donkey


Cleo is a small dusty gray roan standard donkey, who was born in 2004.

Before coming to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) Cleo and her son, Jonas, and four other donkeys lived on a farm in East Ontario. They all were beloved pets and well taken care of for years. Unfortunately, due to personal health reasons, their owners were unable to look after them any longer and decided it was in the best interest of the donkeys to be going to the DSC. Two of the six donkeys went to a new and approved Foster Farm, and Cleo and the other three donkeys came to the Sanctuary Farm in the late spring of 2021.

Cleo is a very sweet girl and is very bonded to her son, Jonas. They are often found together, even when there are many other donkeys to hang around with.
