The PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary

Photo Gallery of our other animals




Ruby was once mistaken for a farm piglet at an auction - she is actually a pink potbelly! When she first came to PrimRose, she suffered from fat blindness. Now, with good nutrition, she's losing weight and gaining quite the attitude! A true diva, we think she wants to be in the movies, like Babe. Ruby has her own 'pig house' and a doorway to a lovely fenced in grassy area outside.







At about three feet tall, Virgil is seven years old. He was found at an auction, being tormented with an electric cattle prod to provoke his distinctive squeal. Slowly, he is learning to trust the other animals and the people around him. He has a favorite volunteer, Laurel that brings him special treats.








He was rescued along with Peter and Stuart (who has been adopted out with Sancho) donkeys and Juliette the pony (who was in extremely poor shape and had to be put to sleep). Timothy arrived in very tough shape with a bad limp but has improved greatly. He has his own wellness staff consisting of a chiropractor, massage therapist and Reiki Master.



 Shadow a.k.a. Vanna

Shadow was a beloved pet, raised in the house and bottle-fed. Thus, she is very people friendly! With super-goat abilities to leap over tall barn gates, she is watched carefully by her friend Christina Rose and the sanctuary team. In fact, it is often impossible to look away from her - she has such quirky charm! Shadow and Christina Rose the sheep reside together and not sure if they are goats, sheep or donkeys!

Shadow is modeling some 'winter wear'!








Sheema the miniature horse





Gordon the hinny, Wilson and Austin the mules (with Tacota and Sheema)

Here's a link to tell you the difference between a mule and hinny.




Kitty Lamont and Preston

Kitty Lamont and Preston the goat have become best buddies.

Lamont started off being bottle fed (his sheep mom didn't want him, but Sheila did!) and lived in the kitchen in the cooler weather. When he started to live in the barn, he needed a room mate and that's when Preston arrived! 





A large molly mule, Jesse is a sweetheart. She loves attention and her own very dedicated volunteer Chris, to take her for trail rides.




PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary has a wonderful assortment of cats!
