This donkey was born only a few weeks ago and was only slightly smaller when born. Ouch!

There are a number of other animals here, not just the ones we photographed. Most of the animals find their way to this sanctuary after irresponsible owners obtain them thinking they will make a great pet. Once they get too big, or take too much time, or cost too much to feed, or aren't fun anymore, or any number of other excuses, and their owners don't want them any more, these people are willing to provide them a safe place for the rest of their lives.
They also offer a Safari Dinner which provides a guided tour behind the scenes to watch the animals eat and includes dinner on the outside terrace overlooking the sanctuary. Something fun for next winter.
Thanks for stopping by...
