PLACEMENT

Unable to keep your donkey?  Want to be sure your donkey is safe with people who know and love donkeys?    Longhopes accepts donkeys from owners who can no longer care for their donkey.

Placement at Longhopes protects your donkey from slaughter, physical abuse, and physical neglect that could occur if your donkey is sold at a livestock sale. At Longhopes, your donkey is at an internationally accredited rescue with nearly 19 years’ experience on donkey care. Longhopes provides your donkey with other donkeys to play, protect and engage in herd behavior.
