Sponsoring a Donkey
Sometimes a donkey or mule comes into the care of a rehoming centre that cannot be rehomed. It might be due to ongoing health issues, or it might be due to psychological issues stemming back to abuse. Either way, if the rehoming centre believes a donkey cannot be rehomed safely and happily, it will remain within the care of the rehoming centre for as long as it takes, or for the rest of its life.
The people that run the RRC’s are volunteers, doing what they do for the love of the animals. Therefore the Trust assists the rehoming centre by seeking sponsorship of any long term residents to ease the financial strain and to ensure our volunteers can continue their good work.
The age and needs of the donkey or mule will determine the amount of sponsorship required; the average being $50 a month. This money is used towards medication, worming, feet trimming, dental work, feed, rugs if required, minerals, salt licks, etc.
We know that $50 is a lot for any one sponsor to contribute, so often a donkey will have two sponsors. The sponsors receive quarterly updates on “their” donkey, or mule, along with some photos, and a long standing invitation to visit.
