If you have any questions regarding our Donkey Adoption Program, please contact our main office at

Donkeys make amazing pets. They are smart, loyal and extremely affectionate.

Peaceful Valley has many great donkeys available for adoption throughout the United States. In order for a donkey to be considered "adoptable" it must meet certain criteria:

  1. Donkey must be people friendly
  2. Donkey must accept a halter
  3. Walk on lead
  4. Donkey must stand for trimming

There are certain rules and guidelines required by Peaceful Valley:

  1. Only geldings and jennets are available for adoption
  2. Adopted donkeys cannot be bred
  3. Adequate shelter and fencing must be provided (requirement varies by region)
  4. Donkeys must be kept on adopter's property (no boarding facilities)
  5. All PVDR Donkeys have had all of their vaccines 
  6. All PVDR Donkeys come with guaranteed health. If the donkeys gets sick in the first 90 days, we will replace it.
