Donkeys Available for Adoption

These donkeys are currently available for adoption from The Donkey and Mule Protection Trust NZ.  If you are interested in adopting any of these donkeys,  you may apply online by completing and submitting the form below the donkey descriptions.  If none of these donkeys are for you, you may still apply to go on our waiting list for future donkeys that may become available.

We strongly recommend you read the information on donkey care available on this website in particular ” I would love a donkey..” to make sure donkeys are right for you.

Please note that single donkeys will only be rehomed where there is already at least one donkey in residence; a property inspection will be required;  and there will be a minimum of a three month trial lease prior to any formal adoption.  An adoption fee will apply.  The Trust is under no obligation to adopt out any animal and decisions are final.

Peanut and Tilly – ADOPTED

Update – These lovely girls have been adopted! Peanut and Tilly are mother and daughter.  Peanut was born in 2007 and Tilly in 2012 so 16 years old and 11 years old respectively.  Their owners are getting to the stage that they realise they need to rehome these beautiful girls as they are unable to spend the time with them now that they need.  Both donkeys are very well behaved and are no problem having their feet trimmed.  They are able to be lead and have no health issues we are aware of.
