Listed here are donkey's and mules who are currently available for adoption. Adoption fees may vary, based on any individuals level of training, ie under saddle, driving, etc. All animals will be up to date on rabies, tetanus, and have a current coggins if applicable.

Visit our Adoption Information page for more information on how to adopt a long ear from SYALER.

As a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization the money needed for the care and upkeep of the animals in the rescue comes from donations, sales of merchandise, as well as adoption fees. In spite of that fact we are lowering our adoption fees for now to try to help make adopting a donkey or mule a bit more affordable.

The poor economy has affected us all. We only have eight animals at a time in the rescue. This ensures every animal getting the individual care and attention it deserves. Every time an animal goes to itís new home, that makes room for another to come in. Hopefully the move to lower our adoption fees a bit will help more people be able to welcome a long ear into their lives.

We do our best to keep this page current but please be understanding if you call about a long ear listed on this page and find that he or she has already been adopted! We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes but please, if you are interested in having a long ear in your family, and you find that the one on this page has been adopted already, talk to us about your interest and we will do our best to help you find your new best friend.

Adoption fees are:

Mini Singles: $600.00 Mini Pairs: $1000.00
Standard Singles: $500. Standard Pairs: $750.00

Daisy

Daisy is a 15 hh, 17 year old mammoth donkey jennet. She is originally from Garrett Mammoth Jackstock in OK. She is such a love. She is going to make someone a great pet. She goes under saddle, but will not go out alone. She was perfectly well behaved for the vet and the farrier. She is up to date on rabies, tetanus, and has a negative coggins. I don't think she will be here very long as I do not get saddle donkeys very often, and she is a real gem.

Adoption fee: 800.

Maggie

Maggie is a 3 year old, sweet molly (female) pony mule. She is a little bit shy, but once she is socialized a bit I think she will be in your pocket. She is said to be good for vet and farrier, but I can not verify that yet. She will be examined by our vet within the next week or so and brought up to date on rabies and tetanus vaccinations, and have blood drawn for coggins.

Adoption fee: 500.

Venus and Serena

Venus, on the left in the photo, and Serena are 20 year old, Belgian molly mules. They are about 16hh and as sweet as the day is long. They came in with very, very long hooves and were very foot sore. They had to be sedated to have their hooves trimmed. This may always be the case, we are not sure yet.

They are utd on rabies and tetanus, and have a negative coggins.

Adoption fee: $900.00 for the pair.

Salsa and Taco

Salsa is a 12 year old standard jennet. She is responsive to voice commnds and leads well at a walk, trot, and canter. She has been ground driven with a harness on. She is a bit aloof, but not unfriendly.

Her sidekick Taco is a 24 year old standard gelding. He is a bit "pushy" but not in a mean or aggressive way. He will give you a push with his head if he feels he's not getting enough attenton. He will sometimes pull his head off the the side when leading, but does lead at a walk, trot, and canter, and he too has been ground driven in harness. Taco has been used to give rides to a five year old.

After being here for a bit and having a chance to "settle in" to their new surroundings, Salsa and Taco have begun to show their true selves. I am smitten. Salsa is such a love bug! Taco is as well and we are working on his "head bopping" behavior. I also want to add that their former farrier reported that they are the best donkeys he has ever worked on. These are two GREAT donkeys!

They are both utd on rabies, tetanus, and have a negative coggins. They are a bonded pair and must go together.

Adoption fee: $750.00

Willow

Willow is a beautiful, sweet 12 year old, dark bay mule. She is fine with having her feet handled. She is utd on rabies, tetanus, and has a negative coggins. We do not have a history on Willow as she came from auction. She was here before and adopted out for a year. Her former owner had to surrender her back to us due to unfortunate family cricumstances.

She has some fear issues, which we are working with her on getting past. She would be a great companion animal. She is easy to work around, loves being groomed and fussed with.

Adoption fee: $650.00

Vera and Rosemary

Have you ever heard of a hinny? We have two of them who are available for adoption. A hinny is the result of breeding a male horse to a female donkey. The hinny is sterile, due to having an uneven number of chromosomes. Vera and Rosemary are both young females. They came from auction without much history. They are a perfectly matched bay pair, about 13.3hh. They will be up to date on rabies and tetanus vaccines and have a negative coggins.

Vera and Rosie are coming along nicely, although just getting them to the point they can be handled has been a very long row to hoe. Vera can now be easily caught and handled. She is very good for the farrier and loves being groomed and loved upon. Rosie is much less shy, though she still needs work. She was excellent for the farrier for her last trim. We were very proud of her brave behavior.

These animals will need to go to someone with mule experience. They still need a lot of work before they can be used in any discipline.

Adoption fee: negotiable
