When adopting a donkey it is important to remember they are very social animals and should be adopted in pairs. At the sanctuary donkeys who arrive together and form a bond are housed together and, if they can be adopted, would be adopted together. Often donkeys who come to the sanctuary alone form a friendship with another donkey already here. This happened with Jenny and Evelyn who have been adopted together. Donkeys should never be kept alone and, if no other donkey is available, will bond with another animal such as a horse, goat or pig. This was the case with Jed the donkey who came to the sanctuary with his own pig called Penelopig. When Jed was being rescued he refused to leave until his pig was found and rescued as well. Donkeys are very social, loyal and protective companions.
