DONKEY DAY #24

June 6, 2017

Each year, as Donkey Day (Sunday, June 11) approaches, I marvel that our celebration of the animals is occurring once again.  There are not many happenings in contemporary society that carry on year after year, and that bring so much pleasure to so many people.  It is indeed an afternoon in the country for animal lovers of all ages.

Donkey Day is very important for The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada, being as it is our major annual event that raises much-needed funds used to care for the donkeys and mules.   During the past two weeks, alone, we have taken in 7 donkeys, some from desperate, neglectful environments.  They are safe with us, now, on a new road where they can live healthy natural lives free from pain and distress.  The proceeds from Donkey Day will help to make that happen.

As is the case on every Donkey Day  there will be a multitude of activities for younger and older alike, all occurring on our beautiful farm where most visitors amble around admiring the donkey residents, slowing down a little bit and living in the moment.  There are always smiles all around.

See you on Sunday, I hope!       To purchase tickets in advance: http://www.thedonkeysanctuary.ca
