Donkeys are some of the cutest animals out there.
And Toronto is home to Canada’s only donkey sanctuary.
Just an hour outside of the city, The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada has been a refuge for donkeys, mules and hinnies who have been neglected or abused, or who can no longer be cared for by their owners.
Having been around for 25 years, the 100 acres has provided peaceful harmony and tranquility to the animals that have been rescued.
The Sanctuary houses nearly 100 donkeys, mules and hinnies in our care both at the main Farm and at Foster Farms. It offers a Learning Centre, with interactive displays, that have been developed so that everyone can better understand donkeys, and the natural world in which they live.
Visitors can also walk around the Wild Duck Marsh on an Interactive Trail for an opportunity to experience in depth the complex and fascinating wetland environment.
Admission to the Sanctuary is by donation.
And to top off the awesomeness of the Sanctuary, it is featured in a documentary called Do Donkey’s Act? which is narrated by Willem Dafoe. The film opens at Hot Docs on Friday, September 29.
