Are You Interested in Joining the PVDR Team by becoming a Satellite Adoption and/or Training Center?

    •    Are you interested in being a part of our country’s premier donkey rescue?

    •    Do you have compassion, motivation and extra time?

    •    Do you live in an area where people are interested in adopting donkeys?

     •    Or…do you have an interest in working with our Iconic Wild Burros?    

    •    Do you have space on your ranch to house donkeys?

    •    Do you have fencing and facilities?

    •    Do you own or have access to a truck and trailer?

Peaceful Valley is looking for qualified individuals to operate Satellite Centers across the United States for both Adoption Centers and Training Centers. 

The objective of a Satellite Adoption Center (SAC) is to move donkeys into areas where they are not as common.   

The objective of a Satellite Training Center is to work with formerly wild burros and get them accustomed to domestic life so that they may transition into our adoption program.

The process to become a PVDR Satellite Center is quick and easy.

   1. Read the Satellite Adoption Center/Satellite Training Center Agreement.

   2. Fill out the online application to become a Satellite Adoption Center/Satellite Training Center.

   3. A Peaceful Valley staff member will call you and arrange an interview.

   4. Once approved as a Satellite Adoption Center, a PVDR staff member will schedule your delivery of donkeys and spend time with you at your facility aquatinting you with the PVDR process.

   5. Once approved as a Satellite Training Center, a PVDR staff member will schedule a training date 

       with your regional manager and teach you the PVDR gentling techniques that we use to ensure 

       your safety as well as the burros you will be working with.
