Donkey Shelter


Donkey Shelter

Since 1997, Donkey Shelter Inc. has provided rescue and sanctuary for Victorian donkeys and mules that have been orphaned, neglected, abused, abandoned, surrendered, and saved from certain death.

The Donkey Shelter specialises in rehabilitating and caring for very young, old, and sick donkeys and mules for the rest of their lives. We do not sell or breed donkeys. The only donkeys born at the shelter are those whose mothers were pregnant when they arrived.

The Shelter is a non-profit, non-government funded, solely community-based charity. We rely 100 per cent on fundraising and donations from the public and business community to cover our operating and infrastructure costs.

Donations above $2 are tax deductible and go directly towards caring for and rehabilitating these affectionate animals.

history


The Donkey Shelter was originally at Diamond Creek, which was sold by owner May Dodd in 2012 and the 70 donkeys shifted to Tongala, about 1.5km from the shelter's 60ha farm.

Ms Dodd said she would miss everyone who supported the shelter during its 15 years in Diamond Creek.

Open by appointment only | Admission on special Open Days is free.
