A Thank You to Our Volunteers

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of our volunteers who dedicate time, passion, and love to support the donkeys and mules at the DSC.  

The hard work, dedication, and unwavering enthusiasm of our volunteers is the driving force behind our mission to provide a safe and loving home for donkeys in need. The willingness of volunteers to roll up their sleeves, muck out stalls, groom our donkey friends, and assist with various tasks around the farm makes it possible for us to continue our vital work.

But their impact goes far beyond the physical tasks they perform. Their presence brings joy and comfort to the donkeys. Our volunteers are the heart and soul of the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada, and we are incredibly grateful for their unwavering support.
