Donkey Care

Safe Shelter

Donkey teams-Peter Ray's 053

Donkeys in distress or old donkeys should always have access to shelter sheds or stables. Old or sick donkeys should be rugged at night in winter or during prolonged wet periods.

At the Sanctuary the healthy donkeys live in paddocks with thick tree stands and gullies to provide natural shelter. They also have access to sheds to seek relief from adverse weather conditions, flies and insects.
