The PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary

Adoption Success Stories Corner

These animals have been adopted. If you are interested in adopting, please email Sheila at for details on specific animals and the adoption process.  It's also a good idea to visit us on our open days Thursdays and Sundays 1-4pm to meet the donkeys.We thank you for your interest!

Dillon has been adopted! Here's pictured here with his new mom Ana!

Congratulations to Jenny and Charlotte on their new home!

William, Norman, Jack and Patrick have been adopted by a PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary volunteer!!!



 Braylee and Saffron ADOPTED!



 Aggie and Finnegan

Aggie the mammoth donkey, and her friend miniature donkey Finnegan have been adopted!



Oscar arrived at the Sanctuary last fall with Daisy and her daughter Jessie.  Affectionate and  outgoing, he made good friends with visiting donkey Eeyore.  When it was time for Eeyore to return home in April he was happy to make room in his barn for his buddy.  We will miss our happy, handsome Oscar. 




Petunia has been adopted and is living with one of the sanctuary's volunteers

Petunia came to us when another sanctuary closed its doors to large animals. Having been fed a diet which included spaghetti and garlic, she is grossly overweight - her belly drags on the ground as she walks. It is very important to get correct information about the proper diet for any animal. With a change in food, we hope she will lose some weight and become a healthy pig.















Sancho and Stuart

These two handsome donkeys have been adopted together.

Jack, Freddy & Willy - ADOPTED!

What an adorable trio!  Handsome and well behaved.  These boys found their past home when they were taken into care by the Sanctuary about 3 years ago.  They enjoyed devoted owners and loving care in their new home but regrettably contacted the Sanctuary to assist with finding them a new farm  to call home.  Previous residents are always welcomed back to the Sanctuary if for any reason their adoption circumstances change.





Rescued from the Kitchener area, hooves quite long, two very bad wounds on both back legs from we think a fence. Not wanted. Kelli the vet gelded him and bandaged his legs. He's in a pasture with Peter (the greeter). Very vocal, what a lovely boy. His name Llewellyn is Welsh for Lion. He has been adopted with another donkey 'Zack' who returned to the sanctuary after his donkey friend had passed away.




Rosie, Kellie and Little Jack got adopted together!





Daisy June and Lucy May were adopted together with Polly and Nellie 


Here is their story:

Daisy June and Lucy May

Sheila rescued the girls when they were 4 and 5 months old.

Along with another jennet foal, Pamela Rose at 3 months old, and Patsy's mother Alice Blue Gown. All four were starved and neglicated.

Patsy was born eight months later. Alice only lasted 3 months after the birth because of previous neglect and abuse.



 Polly and Nellie have been adopted! They were adopted with Lucy May and Daisy June.

This is their story when they first arrived: Mother and daughter - surrendered to the Quinte West Humane Society – from Picton area – what a mess – their hooves VERY over-grown – very difficult to walk - Buck the farrier did his magic and now they can walk without pain. It took a little time for them to adjust to a gentle touch. Very shy. Their hooves are looking almost normal – they don’t walk like a duck!!


Congratulations to Emma and Margaret and their new home!
