Save Your Ass Longear Rescue

Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue was incorporated as a 501-(c)(3), non-profit organization in 2007. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing of donkeys and mules in need. By providing educational opportunities that increase awareness of the human/animal bond as well as the specific needs of long ears, SYA is able to improve the lives of donkeys and mules everywhere.

The rescue is located at the home of Ann and Jeff Firestone in Acworth, NH. The rescue has no "official" hours, but welcomes visitors BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! An appointment can be made by calling the rescue: 603-835-2971. Please respect Ann and Jeff's privacy by calling ahead for an appointment. Meanwhile, please check out our Adoption Page. Thank you.

We receive many emails from people asking us to save animals that are either personally owned, at a broker or auction house. We want to make sure everyone is aware of how our rescue works. Although we would LOVE to save every mule and donkey in need, the reality is we can't. We DO NOT buy animals from individuals. If anyone wants to buy an animal they consider in need and surrender it to the rescue, if it meets our criteria (no jacks) and we have room we will be happy to take it in and find it a new home. Purchaser must be responsible for transport to rescue as well. Surrender forms are available on our website or you can email us and we can email or snail mail you one.

Thank you!

New Item - Lucky the Puppet Donkey

Please welcome Lucky the Donkey to our line of merchandise. This extremely well made and adorable Folkmani donkey puppet will be LUCKY indeed, when adopted by you. Lucky eats very little and is very well mannered. Lucky loves everyone and enjoys being cuddled. We think Lucky would make a good companion for everyone, regardless of their age. The SYA "product testers", have been having a blast!

Lucky's adoption fee is 28.00 plus shipping

Take a Long Ear to Lunch - Sponsorship Program

Save Your Ass Longear Rescue Please consider our sponsorship program which enables you to sponsor a donkey or mule for as little as $10 a month. Your generosity can make a huge impact on the life of an animal. Your consistent donation every month will help feed and care for a donkey or mule in the rescue.

All of our animals are examined by a veterinarian upon intake, they are vaccinated, have blood drawn to ensure a negative coggins and are given any medical care they might need. All the animals have their hooves trimmed every seven weeks and are dewormed as needed. They are all fed according to their needs and are given supplements to make sure their vitamin and mineral needs are addressed. All of this costs money which is why we are offering not only the ten dollar a month level of sponsorship but $15, $20, $25 and $50. If you are so inclined to donate even more than $50 a month, we will be very, very grateful.

We greatly appreciate all of our wonderful donors who have helped us get to where we are today. We are proud to say that we have placed over 245 donkeys and mules in permanent, loving homes since our inception seven years ago. We could not have done it without your ongoing support!
