February: the Month that reminds us to show our love. 
A Donkey Sponsorship Gift Package is a great way to show your love to your favourite Donkey.
Announcing Our Newest Donkey Ambassador  "Tiny Tim".

We are pleased to announce our New Summer Hours starting

Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday
from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The new Summer Hours will provide you with a greater flexibility to schedule your visits with the donkeys.  On the warm summer days we invite you to stop by in the cool early morning and enjoy the tranquil setting at the Refuge.  Sit, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee from our newly renovated Donkey Shoppe while the donkeys munch away at their breakfast hay.  Allow yourself the time to enjoy the peacefulness of the donkeys and the natural rustic beauty of the Turtle Valley.

We said Goodbye to dear Lady Bug in January.  Lady Bug was a roping donkey in the USA before she came to reside at the Donkey Refuge.  She was sad and broken when she arrived.  It took her many years before she could raise her head and relax around humans. Lady Bug was in her early 30's when she passed and we will miss her dearly.  Lady Bug is buried in the Donkey Cemetery beside her very special friend Sara. 
Well Aged Donkey Manure.  
We like to call it Donkey Gold as it is a premium product to add to your Gardens!
Please call ahead to order & pick up at the Refuge (Shirley 250.679.2778)  
$25 a pick up truck load & we load.  
$3 a small container/bag & you load. 
We have sold this product for years and have repeat customers raving about their tomatoes, garlic and squash once they have added this manure to their gardens.  It is called Donkey Gold for good reason.
Still a few 2017 Calendars left.  
Order online or call Shirley.
As always, join us on social for updates.
