Hewey, the gentle Giant


Hewey is a brown mammoth donkey.
Before arriving at The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) Hewey lived on a farm in Western Ontario. For years Hewey was a beloved family pet, he was spoiled but well taken care of, but after the family’s circumstances changed, they had to find a new home that would care for Hewey. Hewey moved to his new home and after a while, the family found out that Hewey was not receiving proper care at this farm. So they contacted the DSC in hopes that we could provide Hewey with a permanent home. We were able to take Hewey in and he arrived in the late fall of 2016.
Hewey has settled into his new routine here at the DSC very nicely.
