The Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary is based between Shanklin and Ventnor on the road to Wroxall and we are open all year round from 10:00am till 4:30pm, weather permitting. Everyone is welcome to come and visit our lovely donkeys including well-behaved dogs. The charity relies entirely on donations, adoptions and the many fundraising activities held throughout the year.
The prime aim of the sanctuary is to provide a home for unwanted donkeys.
Usually, there are more than 100 animals in our care – usually over 90 donkeys and 25 horses and ponies. These animals have led a variety of lives, but they all have one thing in common – they need a home.
MURPHY & PADDY are just two of our lovely donkeys who are available for adoption so if you are LOOKING FOR A PERFECT ‘FEEL GOOD’ GIFT for a loved one Please click here to ADOPT A DONKEY
