DONKEYS IN NEED
The welfare of donkeys in Victoria has been one of
the main aims of the Donkey Society of Victoria from its inception in 1972. The Society will rescue, seek veterinary advice if necessary, treat or do what is recommended for the donkey.
We will rehabilitate and arrange for re-homing, or
if there is a situation where a donkey’s condition is unsuitable because of an ongoing problem, we may ask for assistance from the Donkey Shelter.
For help please email email@example.com
or call Pat on 5264 5235
If you would like to donate to the welfare fund to assist those donkeys in need please contact the above email address.
