Good Deed #65 of 150 – The Donkey Sanctuary
150 Good Deeds in 150 Days 2017.
The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada
JULY 5, 2017
Since 1992, The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada has been a refuge for donkeys, mules, and hinnies. The Donkey Sanctuary provides a safe home and refuge for rescued donkeys, it also provides educational programs to all elementary and high school grade levels. There are nearly 100 Donkeys at this facility which is open May to October, Sundays, and Wednesdays. They depend on donations to care for the donkeys. The Sanctuary rescues the donkey with hooves so long it lives in constant pain and cannot walk. It saves a terrified mule shivering in a pen in a slaughterhouse. It offers a home to a much-loved donkey whose aging owners can no longer provide adequate care. At the Sanctuary, the animals are provided a welcome and often life-saving peaceful haven after years of suffering and neglect. The Sanctuary is 100 acres of tranquility, in which we strive to live in peaceful harmony with the animals we have rescued. It is our mission to ensure the animals who come to live out the remainder of their lives with us are surrounded by love, dignity, and the respect they richly deserve. This good deed was nominated by Kim Clarkson of our Kitchener branch.
