About Us

Our Story

Here at The Wonkey Donkey Visitors Centre we rescue and rehabilitate ill and mistreated donkeys. We cater for any donkey that is brought to us and our aim is to help as many donkeys as we possibly can.

I became interested in donkeys following an illness when I was 10 years old. I lost the ability to read, write and I couldn’t even add 1 and 1. Due to this illness I had to leave school and during my time off school I asked for a donkey, my aunties went out and bought me one. He was a rescue donkey who had no trust in people whatsoever. He didn’t want to know any of us, but I was determined that he would become my best friend.
