The Donkey Oasis
A sanctuary for donkeys
The Donkey Oasis was founded by a team of volunteers in January 2005 with the purpose of protecting and preserving the donkey.
The sanctuary is meant for donkeys in distress (as a result of f.e. problems with the owner, neglect, abuse, confiscation, etc.). Their wellbeing is our priority.
When the donkey has regained its health, it can be adopted (the NPO will, at all times, remain the owner of all donkeys that are adopted). Some donkeys stay in the sanctuary permanently to live out the latter years of their lives in peace and quiet.
Our donkeys will only be put up for adoption when they are in good health, vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped, trimmed hooves, castrated (in case of stallions) and rehabilitated.
The NPO also provides (future) donkey owners with the proper information to prevent neglect and maltreatment of donkeys. We regularly organise informative (half/full day) seminars about the care and handling of donkeys. A veterinarian and farrier, both donkey specialists, will be present at every seminar.
We support all donkey owners, especially our wonderful adoptive families.
What you can do
The people working at The Donkey Oasis are all volunteers, but maintaining the sanctuary and the donkeys costs money (food, bedding, veterinary costs, laboratory research, worming products, vaccinations, registration and micro chipping). On average, taking in a donkey costs €750,- per year. This is why your financial support is so vital for us to be able to give proper care to the donkeys that we rescue.
