Project Sanctuary

Although our adoption numbers continue to climb each year, we are always bringing in more donkeys than we can adopt out.  As we have a finite amount of room on our current ranches, we had to find a way to keep large herds of donkeys while they await adoption.  Project Sanctuary was born out of this necessity.

Donkey Rescue International

Since the dawn of colonialism, donkeys have been the primary tool used to harvest the wealth of the land. Able to adapt to nearly any climate, donkeys fueled the wealth of the European Empires in mining, agriculture and transportation. Having first arrived in the Americas in 1493, on Columbus' second voyage, donkeys were quickly distributed throughout the Caribbean Islands. Today, donkeys are overpopulated on many islands throughout the Caribbean. On most islands they are completely without an advocate and on the islands where there are supporters, they are underfunded and under appreciated.
