The Donkey Sanctuary – A UK based charity working worldwide to improve conditions for donkeys and mules.
Founded in 1969 by Dr. Elisabeth Svendsen, MBE, she dedicated her life to champion donkeys, and it is through her devotion that the Sanctuary grew to be the international charity it is today.
As donkeys are used for work and in many circumstances are a lifeline to families in their everyday tasks, such as water, and wood fuel collection, land cultivation and transportation of produce to market, the organisation aims to transform the quality of life for donkeys, mules and people worldwide through greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships.
Worldwide projects includes research into tropical diseases of both national and international importance, to mobile clinics and sanctuaries providing free clinical treatment and advice on management, husbandry and nutrition in donkeys and mules.
