Sheila Burns - Founder, proprietor, but definitely not in charge!
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.
Thanks for visiting and donations are always very much appreciated!
Enjoy the wonderful tour of PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary by Rob Quartly! Please share!
|PrimRose, the namesake of PrimRose Donkey sanctuary passed away peacefully on February 1st in her 47th year. Prim was an amazing girl who was Sheila’s first donkey-the one that started it all! She was a wonderful ambassador for the sanctuary, visiting long term care residents, participating in parades and Easter services. She liked to wear her halter a little off to the side, her own fashion statement, such a special girl. Prim was also a very good sport, wearing her tiara and pearls for special occasions. PrimRose used to pull a cart at Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto and was then shifted around from farm to farm for about five years before becoming Sheila’s first donkey. Prim had lived her best life with Sheila for 27 years and knew how loved she was. PrimRose will be greatly missed and never forgotten.|
We are closed until possibly June depending on the Covid-19 situation. We will then re-evaluate when we will re-open. The curb-side visits will be suspended until then. We will post on this Facebook page and our website, when we are planning to re-open. Please stay safe and well! Donations are GRATEFULLY accepted at the front gate donation box. If you'd like a receipt mailed to you, please leave your monetary donation in an envelope with your name and address.
