For the last 10 years Valentine lived on a farm in the Owen Sound area. She was well taken care of and was living with older horses in a paddock. Once the older horses had passed away her owner put Valentine in with their flock of sheep, so she won’t be alone. However, Valentine did not get along with the smaller animals and kept chasing them. To keep everybody safe Valentine was removed from the group and put up for sale. When nobody showed interest in the sweet donkey, the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) was contacted to see if we could take Valentine in. Since Valentine arrived the day before Valentine's Day in 2018, we thought it was appropriate to call her Valentine.
Valentine is a very curious donkey and is slowly adjusting to her new surroundings and the routines here at the DSC.
