Thank you volunteers!

snow donkey

Thank you to all volunteers who visited the Sanctuary on Sunday, November 13 to help us prepare the farm for winter. Your hard work has earned you donkey love and hugs throughout our Christmas season! Because of you, the Sanctuary trails and paddocks have been cleared of apples, brush and other natural debris, and we look festive for the holidays. The donkeys can now enjoy walks, have more room for roaming and dashing through the snow!
