The DSC in the News

DSC in the News: Discover Ontario

My goodness, it feels like we've had a lot of press lately. Wait a minute - that's because we have! We're so happy so many people have come out to visit us, and then tell more people about what we do and why they should visit. We've shared the articles, as well as one video with you below:

The DSC was recently featured on the Courage Herd podcast - you'll even hear the donkeys talk! Also, some lovely ruminations on what it means to be out 'in the herd'. 

Q107 radio host Jennifer Valentyne came for a visit this summer and made a video of her time at the Sanctuary – including some amazing overhead shots of the farm; click here to watch the video via YouTube. 

We've been featured in NOW magazine: 7 Last Minute Toronto Getaways to Stretch Out Your Summer

Also on Blog TO: There's an adorable sanctuary for donkeys just outside Toronto

In October last year, we were visited by Vanessa Trignanelli, who wrote a story about the DSC in The Pioneer - 'Sanctuary a saviour for donkeys', and also shot a video on behalf of the Globe and Mail! Wow.    

Last summer we were profiled on Let's Discover ON (this is a video)Let's Discover ON - Donkey Sanctuary of Canada - clicking the photo above will also take you to the video. 

Oh, and there's also a lovely article about the DSC in Horse Power magazine: Called 'Discover Delightful Donkeys', this link will open the PDF in your browser, or you can download the article by clicking the PDF below. 

And the DSC is also profiled in Karen Dallimore's recent 'Not just horses with big ears', which appeared in the December 2014 issue of Ontario Farmer. Yes, this is an older article, but we do love its title and it's well done besides. Click the link, or download the PDF below to read the article.
