Would you like to spend a day together with our gorgeous donkeys, learn to brush them, cuddle them, learn about their stories and what we do for them?
Join the Grooming Day, the monthly event dedicated to those who love donkeys!
There are three grooming sessions scheduled:
- from 11 am to 12.30 am
- from 2 pm to 4 pm
- from 4.30 pm to 6 pm
Check the signs or ask the Welcome Desk for more info.
Several guided tours of the sanctuary will take place also: ask the volunteers to join!
Take your camera!
During May Grooming Day we will launch a brand new event within the celebrations for the first ten years of opening to visitors.
A hint? Keep your cameras ready and follow us on Instagram (look for @RifugioAsinelli).
Good to know...
Booking is not required and there's no entrance fee. Our sanctuary relies on donations, so if you would like to support us making an offer it will be really appreciated and useful!
Please keep in mind that activities will take place outdoors, so wear proper clothes and shoes. In case of bad weather, the event may be cancelled: please follow our Facebook page for updates and if in doubt give us a call.
Children under 6 must be accompanied by parents.
You can bring your packed lunch with you, or you can order a food-box from Cooperativa Raggio Verde on their website (deadline to order: 24 May).
