Urgent Appeal - homes needed for 34 ears, 68 legs and thousands of hee haws!

Wednesday October 19, 2011

We are urgently appealing for homes for 17 donkeys currently residing at the centre. These animals were rescued together 6 weeks ago. We have a mixture of colts, geldings and mares. If you think that you may have the perfect home, please contact PJ at the DSPCA 01 4994700 for more information.


Reasons for owning a Donkey



  • You love horses, but you want another equine mind to figure out.

  • You need a companion, or your horse, cow, sheep, llama or goat needs one

  • Your donkey is always happy to see you

  • Donkeys are teachers - they teach you how to be patient and kind

  • Donkeys make you laugh, and laughter is good for the soul

  • That wonderful sound they make, which endears you to all of your neighbours. Hee Haw!

  • Those ears, those ears, have you ever seen ears like that?
