Adopt a Donkey

For Christmas 2017, one of our loyal supporters started an Adopt-a-Donkey initiative. It proved to be so popular that she has decided to continue the adoption scheme.

The cost for adopting a donkey is £20 (£25 if the recipient is abroad), and you will receive a printed adoption certificate for your chosen donkey by post. Please note: 1 donkey per certificate.

The adoption scheme is fully run and funded by this wonderful supporter, whom we would like to thank from the bottom of our hearts. All proceeds help the charity raise much needed funds which will enable Lucy to continue her critical work rescuing and caring for donkeys in Israel and the Palestinian West Bank.


Any donkey at the sanctuary can be adopted in this way. You might know some of the donkeys from the news stories on the website, here are just a few: Molly, Sam, Poppy (our adorable foals born at the sanctuary), Mac, Ian, Elijah, RaphaelThomas, Bella, Katy, Lily, Grace, Jane, Barbara, David, Michael, Joan, Erika - and of course not forgetting our lovely blind Zachariah. Have a look in our Gallery to see more sanctuary residents.

Each donkey costs £20 to adopt (UK).

Adoptions from outside the UK are £25 (£20 if you opt to receive the certificate digitally so you can print it yourself; please specify with your order)

Adoption Certificates can be requested in two ways:
