Our adopted donkeys on behalf of our family and guests


Our adopted Donkey Walter can be found in Shelter 2

Look out for him if you come and visit. Walter is easy to spot with his recognisable brown and white markings and pink nose.

For all the times that you can’t be there in person, you can always look out for him on the Shelter 2 webcam – click here
