A Thank You to Our Volunteers

We receive such positive feedback from guests about the passion and love that our volunteers show for the donkeys and the Sanctuary. We agree, that our volunteers are some of the most dedicated and hard-working that you’ll find anywhere.

We have some of the most engaged volunteers that any organization could hope to have, with an unparalleled knowledge of the donkeys, the farm, and history of the Sanctuary. Without our volunteers, the operation of our events and day-to-day chores would be next to impossible.

Volunteers, thank you for all of the things that you do for the DSC and the animals. We wouldn’t be able to do it without you.

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.


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!
