Founded by Elizabeth Svendsen, the Donkey Sanctuary takes in donkeys and mules that have been abused or abandoned. In this series, we’ll take a closer look at this refuge, expanding our knowledge about donkeys' behavior, diets and personalities as well as the shelter’s volunteer program. There’s even a charity shop to help out with the sanctuary’s expenses!
Founded by Elisabeth Svendsen, the Donkey Sanctuary is a refuge for abused or neglected donkeys and mules. Although often misconstrued by society, we learn, among other things, the true nature of these friendly and intelligent animals.
A caretaker at the Donkey Sanctuary explains the special care that these geriatric donkeys require, how they can be used as therapy animals for a wide range of people and, the strong bond that they have not only with humans, but with each other.
