The Donkey Sanctuary is a UK based animal welfare and rescue charity working worldwide to improve the lives of donkeys and mules.

More about The Donkey Sanctuary

The Donkey Sanctuary was founded in 1969 by Dr Elisabeth Svendsen MBE. It is only through her amazing devotion to donkeys and hard work that the Sanctuary has grown to the international charity it is today supporting projects in 35 countries and providing sanctuary to neglected and abandoned donkeys and mules.

However, there is still much to do. Over 50 million donkeys and mules exist in the world. Many need care and protection from a life of suffering and neglect, while others have a vital role to play in human survival and happiness; these gentle and affectionate creatures are at the heart of everything The Donkey Sanctuary does.

By 2019 the charity wants to be able to give a helping hand to two million donkeys each year in 40 countries, to double the number of donkeys in foster care to 3,000 and to expand its Donkey-Assisted Therapy programme in the United Kingdom and internationally.

The Donkey Sanctuary Mission: To transform the quality of life for donkeys, mules and people worldwide through greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships.

The Donkey Sanctuary Vision: A world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering and their contribution to humanity is fully valued.
