Donkey sanctuary to close

It was announced today that the donkey sanctuary in Nerja – south of here along the Spanish coast – will close at the end of the month. I have never visited the Nerja sanctuary but have followed the good work that it does on their website and have always been interested in reading of the fortunes and woes of particular animals.

The reasons are financial and due to the lack of funds for investment in new premises the sanctuary cannot get the permissions it needs in order to continue with its work. Most donkeys will be rehoused at another santuary but some animals are looking for homes, so I am publicising their appeal here in case a Spanish resident reader of my blog can help.

If you are able to help re-home any of these animals, please contact Harriet at harriet@donkeyaid.com

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.

    I will pray that homes for these donkeys will be found. St Francis and the Holy Family will help them, I’m sure.

    That is very sad news. They look like very happy donkeys! I hope they find equally happy homes.
