The Donkey Sanctuary
The Donkey Sanctuary Assisted Therapy Centre, Slade House Farm, Devon, 10 0NU
Adopting a riding-therapy donkey is a wonderful way to support the work of donkey therapy centres based around the UK in Belfast, Birmingham, Ivybridge, Leeds, Manchester and Sidmouth. Each centre provides riding to children with additional needs as well as taking the donkeys into residential homes, hospices and schools.
A year's adoption of your chosen donkey will cost £16. For this you will receive a folder containing a Certificate of Adoption, details of your adopted donkey with colour picture, and a lovely A4 pencil drawing. After six months you will then be sent a letter updating you on what your donkey has been doing. A DVD is also available to buy. All of the centres are open to visitors preferably by appointment, so you can visit your adopted donkey throughout the year; the staff are always willing to chat with visitors about the donkeys.
