These animals have been adopted. If you are interested in adopting, please email Sheila at firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
Mickey is a stocky standard donkey with the softest muzzle who loves hugs and her nose rubbed. Mickey has been adopted by a wonderful French Canadian family, so she is now bilingual!
Chester and Edward have been adopted! Here is their story
Two yearling geldings from the Hamilton S.P.C.A. in 2013. When surrendered they were jacks. The S.P.C.A. moved them to a safe farm. They were gelded and kept for a week just to make sure all their parts healed nicely. Very nervous, hooves long, coats a definite mess. They have been groomed and Buck the farrier has trimmed their hooves.
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.
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.
Christmas and Emily
Emily arrived at PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary in early March 2012 with her baby Robbie and already expecting again. The very loved Christmas was born on Christmas day 2012. He is a very affectionate, sweet boy, never knowing abuse or neglect. They have been adopted by one of our wonderful volunteers!
Lucy May and Daisy June
Lucy May and Daisy June were rescued by Sheila along with another donkey and Patsy's mother Alice Bluegown. Lucy, Daisy and Pamela were under five months old. They have been adopted.
Gloria and Nellie have been adopted!
Gloria was rescued by PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary as a 6 month old. She's very independent, kind and trusting. She has now bonded with Nellie. Nellie and her mother Polly were rescued by PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary from a goat farm. Nellie being 6 years old at the time and had never had hooves trimmed and neither had Polly. Resulting in very long hooves which called slipper foot. Our farrier worked his magic and they were both able to walk more comfortably. Polly passed away due to severe colic. Sadly missed by Nellie, but she has now found a friend in Gloria.
