New England's only 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit Donkey and Mule Rescue
Save Your Ass Longear Rescue
23 Saw Mill Road, South Acworth, NH, 03607 (603) 835-2971

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!

Submit your photos for the 2015
Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue calendar!

Greetings from Your Friends at SYA! We invite you to join us in putting the “fun” back into fundraising, with our 2015 Long Ear Calendar and Photo Contest! The calendar will feature your photos of your donkeys, mules and hinnies.

The calendar will be offered for sale on our website and at many event booths wherever there are SYA volunteers, in plenty of time for 2015.

**Your longear is guaranteed to appear if you submit the photo the way we ask!**

Fundraising is critical to pay for veterinary bills, farrier fees, food and shelter for our incoming rescued long ears. SYA has found new homes for more than 245 animals since 2007, and funds raised will enable the rescue to continue to provide these much needed services for longears in need.

Entries are Due by July 30th. Time is running out! Submit your photo today!

Take a Long Ear to Lunch - Sponsorship Program

Please consider our new 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.

Sponsorship Options

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 135 donkeys and mules in permanent, loving homes since our inception. We could not have done it without your ongoing support!
