The Donkey Sanctuary Assisted Therapy Centre offers families the opportunity to get involved with rescued mules and learn about the importance of how we treat animals.
Visitors are free to spend as much time as they wish meeting the donkeys in the Main Yard where they wander freely.
These donkeys live in the main barn with the other residents, some of which are over 40 years of age! They need plenty of extra attention and are kept here to be close to the veterinary hospital. Please do stop by and spend some time with them as they adore fuss and attention in their old age.
They are on National Cycle Route 2 as well as the Tour de Manche route and the Buzzard route, so the cyclists will be wheely looked after too!
If you've had fun on your family day out to Donkey Sanctuary, tell us about it your visit, so other people will know it's a great place to go as well.
It may be worth checking out Donkey Sanctuary's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
