Sponsor a Donkey
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.
Sponsor a Mule
Gertie is a dark bay (brownish-black) miniature mule who was born around the mid to late 1990s, as far as we know. She was rescued as a young animal from a horse farm, suffering from abuse and neglect, when the farm was closed by the Humane Society.
The horses who could be saved were taken to new homes but no one wanted Gertie, until a caring person who worked in animal welfare stepped forward. For 15 years, she led a happy healthy life with this caregiver, a few horses, and other animals. However, personal circumstances changed suddenly for her owner who sought a new forever home for her much-loved mule where she would be well-cared for.
We were very happy we were able to welcome Gertie in September 2014.Learn More
