Ways to Help

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 or more.

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 nearly 500 donkeys and mules in permanent, loving homes since our inception. We could not have done it without your ongoing support!

Monetary Donations
Monetary donations are always needed. All animals are seen by the farrier every 6-8 weeks. When an animal first arrives at the rescue they are examined by a veterinarian and vaccinated against rabies and tetanus and wormed as needed. All animals traveling out of state need a negative coggins test.

These routine expenses quickly add up and don't take into consideration medical emergencies that might arise.
