Ruth Donkey


Ruth is a dusty grey roan standard donkey, who was born in 2002.

Before coming to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) Ruth and her daughter, Charlotte, 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 Ruth and the other three donkeys came to the Sanctuary Farm in the late spring of 2021.

Ruth is a very sweet donkey, and a great mom to her daughter. Charlotte follows Ruth wherever she goes.
