Visit Us

Come and visit the donkeys and mules in Sanctuary. Whether you choose a visit on an Open Day or prefer to book a private, expert-guided tour, be prepared to be charmed by these gentle animals. You will learn how we care for the animals, discover the donkeys’ personalities, the dynamics of the different groupings and get all your questions about donkeys answered by our incredible staff and volunteers.

Open Days

We are excited to announce that the Sanctuary Farm will be open for visitors this summer!

Open Days will look a little different this year, so it is important to note the information on the Eventbrite page. Tickets will only be sold online via Eventbrite, and there will be no tickets available on the property. Our Open Days are also held rain or shine, so be sure to dress appropriately.

2023 Tours

PACE for the Donkeys 5K

PACE for the Donkeys is a 5K Trail Run and Walk through the nature trails and paddocks at the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada. This year, the race will be on the farm for a limited number of people and also online! The race will take place on September 24th, 2023.

Pace is our biggest fundraising event of the year and proceeds go towards the care of the animals who call the Sanctuary home. By signing up for the fun and recruiting sponsors for your run, you are proving food, shelter and medical care for vulnerable donkeys and mules.

To achieve our mission, we rely on the generous support of individuals like you, who share our commitment to donkeys. Your donations could help rescue a donkey who is experiencing neglect, a mule who has never felt a gentle human hand, or teach equine caretakers the difference between a donkey and a horse so they can help donkeys thrive in different environments.

In appreciation for your support, donors receive a discount to our Open Days!
