Many moons ago when I was tooing froing to Leeds, I kept driving past a sign that said donkey sanctuary. I meant to go, but they didn’t open every day and I never got there. The main sanctuary was miles away in the West Country, and I started to support them, through donations, purchases of diaries and Christmas cards. At the end of October I went to stay for a couple of days with family in Cornwall, and realised with a short detour I could finally visit the donkey sanctuary at Sidmouth. Stand by for some aah pictures.
Most of them are rescue donkeys. Some go onto new homes, and some stay here.
All looking beautiful, clean and content. The occasional rescue donkey is already pregnant and gives birth safely in the sanctuary.They have fields to run in, and cuddles from the visitors if they choose to come to you. They have toys to play with and veterinary care. The charity also supports donkeys and mules around the world.
I just love them. Find them at https://thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk
I wondered what animals never fail to melt your heart.
