We have a very special new arrival at our sanctuary... Sophia, our newly rescued donkey has given birth to a beautiful, long legged, baby boy and now he needs a name!

As a sanctuary, we don't breed donkeys for ethical and practical reasons, but, as was the case with Sophia, sometimes donkeys are already in foal when they arrive with us. Poor Sophia arrived with us only last month, incredibly underweight despite being so heavily pregnant. Having been brought to the UK from Europe, we were luckily able to rescue this beautiful donkey before she was traded once more into the continental meat market. It is likely that she was previously used as a breeding Jenny, so we know that she will have had many babies cruelly taken from her over the years. This time will be different though safe at our sanctuary, Mum and baby will be given all the specialised care and attention they need and Sophia will never have to face the tragedy of having her baby taken away from her ever again.
