Alvin the donkey


Alvin is a white Standard donkey, born in 2010. 

Not much is known about Alvin’s life before coming to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC), other than he and two other donkeys were originally rescued by a lady who saw them at an Equine auction and bought them. Not realizing the immense training and specialized care the three donkeys needed, she contacted the DSC to see if we could give the donkeys a lifelong home. Alvin and the other two donkeys arrived in the late spring of 2018.

Alvin is slowly adjusting to his new life at the Sanctuary. He is very curious about his new environment and the is eager to get to know everybody.
