We have launched an important way for you to help support our work as an individual, group, school or business by sponsoring one of our donkeys for one year (excludes adoption donkeys and donkeys out on foster).
Although donkey adoptions are €24 per year, the cost of caring for one healthy donkey at Il Rifugio is about €1,200 each year.
- €450 - Average cost of vet and medicines
- €520 - Average cost of food and bedding
- €200 - Average cost of farrier
- €30 - Cost of one grooming kit
This is an excellent way for you to support our ongoing work while enjoying a special relationship with one of our donkeys.
What you can get
- Regular updates
- Special information pack, containing pictures of the donkey and sponsors with the donkey
- Unique sponsorship certificate
- ... and more personalized gifts about your donkey!
Special thank you
As a thank you, we will put a special plaque on our farm and the sponsored donkey will wear a collar with his/her name and his/her sponsor's surname for the entire year.
