Near Sidmouth in the UK there is a what could be described as Heaven for Donkeys – a sanctuary for these amazing four legged creatures.
During our journey of living like locals…we’ve seen lots of animals close-up – but nothing prepared us for the experience of a donkey close encounter. Donkeys are widely misunderstood creatures with most people believing they are stubborn.
Donkeys are really smart, curious, affectionate and love being patted.
Getting set up for an interview, a couple of the more friendly donkeys definitely wanted to be in the action!
Neil had a very memorable DONKEY CLOSE ENCOUNTER with Bonnie, one of the favourites at the sanctuary. Here’s a video clip of that encounter!
AS one of Britain’s most generously-funded charities, The Donkey Sanctuary has arms spread world-wide to rescue and care for donkeys. There are more than 40 million donkeys in the world, many of them in servitude…these lucky guys are definitely in Donkey Heaven.
There is a purpose for their life. They’re lucky here in here England – they enjoy the lovely green fields and go to lovely foster homes where someone lovingly cares for them. But donkeys abroad need to be a working animal for the family.
With around 500 formerly displaced animals housed at this facility, it allows you to get to know donkey breeds and understand their quirky personalities.
The Donkey Sanctuary supports donkey rescue in locations around the world.
