Sheila Burns - Founder, proprietor, but definitely not in charge!
Welcome to the PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary! We are dedicated to the rescue, protection, and rehabilitation of abused, neglected, and unwanted donkeys, mules and hinnies.
We also provide an information hoof-way to educate the public: the donkey is not a stubborn, dumb or vicious animal; but a stoic, loyal and very intelligent animal who will risk its life to protect its charges, including humans.
No large animal will be turned away from this sanctuary, and if I cannot house it, I will do my utmost to find the best possible solution for the animal.
Thanks for visiting and donations are always very much appreciated!
PrimRose and I really need your help. The land across the road from PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary is for sale and we really need to expand. Any monetary assistance would be greatly appreciated.
The land across the road is 91.2 acres with a small barn and a pond at the lower end housing approx. 20 head beef cattle. The fencing is adequate but will have to be repaired for donkeys’ browsing. Our goal is to bale our own hay, build a barn (round) and put in another well at the sanctuary end of the property so we can put the overflow across the road and only house the old and not- healthy animals in our existing barn. But all this will take time. Right now I need to secure the property and then move on with the other needs. The asking price is $400,000.00.
Of course I can accept a cheque directly. Please mail cheques made out to PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary to 1296 Bowmanton Rd. RR 4 Roseneath, Ontario, Canada, K0K 2X0
As we are a registered charity I will issue a tax receipt.
I know this is a big request and time is not on our side. Thank you for anything you can do to help PrimRose.
Thank you very much, Sheila
