Jonas the Donkey


Jonas is a small brown standard donkey, who was born in 2008.

Before coming to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) Jonas and his mom, Cleo, lived with four other donkeys 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 Jonas and the other three donkeys came to the Sanctuary Farm in the late spring of 2021.

Jonas is a very brave and adventurous boy, but he is quite bonded to his mom. He can often be found following Cleo around wherever she goes.
