Care and advice
The Donkey Sanctuary has published a number of books and fact sheets. The list below is aimed at owners of donkeys or those considering getting a donkey.
Owning or caring for a donkey is most rewarding, although very few realise just how much time, effort and expense goes into the care of donkeys.
If you require further information and guidance, please get in touch with our welfare team.
