If the donkeys at the DSC could talk, I am certain that some of the first sentences uttered would be those of gratitude to DSC volunteers. From them, the animals receive the affection and respect that help them to thrive as so many of them do.
Most volunteering done here at the Sanctuary is done quietly: patting, grooming, sweeping, very hands on physical work all of which adds up to enormous support being provided to our small staff. In addition, there are those people who help us to maintain the property. Still others make it possible for us to present special afternoons like Open Days, Donkey Day and Donor Appreciation Day.
The volunteer efforts of so many combine to make the DSC a special place, one where the donkeys and mules are the first concern. It is a positive environment and a testament to the contributions of time and talent that are given so generously. To all involved, on the animals’ behalf, thank you.
