Longhopes Donkey Shelter - Rescues and Adoptions

Longhopes – Rescues and Adoptions

What can you do for a donkey at Longhopes Donkey Shelter?

In our previous blog post we told you a little about how Longhopes does donkey rescues and adoptions. In this post you can find out ways to be a part of the rescue shelter efforts. There are many ways to monetarily help with the ongoing costs of helping these animals, not just with feeding (hay is a favorite!), but also medical and maintenance costs. Vaccinations and dental care are needed for animals (just like people).

There are many easy ways you can help the Longhopes Donkey Shelter!

FCVC supports Longhopes  – we love their donkeys and have adopted several. If you have the heart and space for donkeys, this might be just the thing for you, too! If you cannot adopt, please try to give through one of the other alternatives, like volunteering or participating in E.A.R.S.
