Donate:

Donations can be made via PayPal/Stripe on our website and Facebook page or directly by post. Cheques made payable to Donegal Donkey Sanctuary.

Could you consider setting up a direct debit? Just €4 euro per week can mean an awful lot to a starving animal.

All donations go directly to care of the donkeys.

Adopt a Donkey:

Our donkey sponsorship scheme is one of our regular fundraisers. You can ‘adopt’ any of the four adoption donkeys – Quiney, Zeta, Binky or Poppy for just €25 per year. You will receive an adoption pack containing an adoption certificate, a photograph of your donkey, a fridge magnet and a letter outlining the donkeys life story to date. You may visit your adoption donkey or donkeys as often as you like at the sanctuary.
Donkey adoption packs make a wonderful gift for an animal loving friend, either for a birthday or maybe as a Christmas present!

Fostering:

Could you give a pair of donkeys a second chance at life? You need to have 1 acre of land, adequate shelter and a hard stand. Donkeys are usually fostered in pairs but occasionally a single donkey could be fostered as a companion for a donkey that you already own. Apply in writing to the sanctuary. Full details in the fostering section of this website.

Collection Boxes:

Could you take a collection box to your workplace or even your home? Every cent counts and no donation is too small. Collection boxes are available on request.

Fundraising:

Why not organise a fundraiser in your own area? You could have fun with friends while raising money for the donkeys. Here are some ideas:

Coffee morning
Casual dress day at work
Cocktail party
Quiz night
