Message from the President

We at the Donkey Refuge wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and all the Best for the New Year.  We thank you for being champions for the donkeys by becoming Donkey Society Members as well as donors who we know gave from the heart to help these donkeys in need.  Without you we would not be here to rescue and care for the donkeys in crisis who arrive from all over Western Canada.  This last year has been a year of accomplishments which improved the lives of the resident donkeys and enabled us to make room for more donkeys needing our help.  We look forward to 2015 as we put in place more of our plans to improve the lives of the beloved long ears.  We also look forward to the opportunity to meet all of you again around the donkey's new home.  

With much appreciation and love.

Rob and Shirley and all the Long Ears at the Refuge.

Cold Weather

Cold Winter Weather brings many challenges to the donkeys who originated  from the desert and who would prefer the warm dry climate if provides.  We at the Refuge are very pleased with how the new farm has provided many areas in the barns that are warm and dry.  We also put blankets on the donkeys that just need that extra protection from the cold wind and snow.  Another very important part of keeping the donkeys healthy in the winter is heated water troughs where the donkeys can enjoy warm water throughout the winter months.  Thank you to everyone who have donated the funds for the water troughs and blankets for the donkeys.
Dove says thanks to everyone for the extra warmth!
