The PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary

Adoption Success Stories Corner

These animals have been adopted. If you are interested in adopting, please email Sheila at sheilaburns@sympatico.ca 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!

 Congratulations to Phillip on his adoption!

 

 Mickey

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!

 Congratulations to "Chocolate" Charles on his adoption!


Chester and Edward

Two yearling geldings from the Hamilton S.P.C.A. 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

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

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.

 

 

 

Llewellyn

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.
