A great PACE day!

A visit on PACE day over the fence

Our thanks to everyone who came out to participate in our fourth annual PACE for the Donkeys 5K. With perfect weather for racing - sunny skies and comfortable temperatures - plus lots of interested donkeys and excitement - we were bound to have a great day, and we did! Results are posted here at Speed River Timing's site.

Our heartfelt thanks also to all of the wonderful volunteers who helped so spectacularly - we really truly absolutely couldn't have done it without them! And thanks, too to all of the sponsors who donated prizes and support to help make our event such a terrific one:

Book a private tour

Buffy greets visitors over the fence.

Book a private tour of the Sanctuary - perfect for groups large and small - to learn about the history of the DSC, the work we do with the animals and the special nature of donkeys. A guide will greet you upon your arrival, and accompany you throughout - you'll also find it's a terrific way to spend a few hours in idyllic countryside in the company of gentle equines. 

Tours may be arranged from May through October - to book, send an email to tour@thedonkeysanctuary.ca. 

Cost for tours is $7.50 per person, minimum $60 per group. Visit this page for more information and some guidelines for your visit.
