Help us by adopting a donkey!

You can adopt one of our hundreds of donkeys. You choose one that appeals to you, here at the park, via our adoption book in the shop or via the form below.


You will receive an adoption certificate and a picture of your donkey, as well as a welcome gift as a participant in our Donkey Adoption Program 'LOV' IAAAAAA '.


Of course we will keep you informed about the ups and downs of the donkey sanctuary in general and your donkey in particular.

And one more thing: you are welcome at the Sanctuary at all times. You do not pay an entrance fee for yourself and your (Max. 4) immediate family members. This way you can come and see your adopted donkey and his or her friends as often as you like.

So come by or click here to choose a donkey now!

How does it work?

If you arrange the adoption here in the park, you can choose any donkey that appeals to you. If you adopt in the shop or through this website, you can choose from the 30 donkeys we have described until now. Choose here to choose a donkey.

When you visit us, we would love to point out your donkey to you. However, this is only possible if one of our regular volunteers is present in the Sanctuary (the rotating team of course doesn’t recognize every donkey) and if there’s time. You probably understand we work rather hard every day! Also we have to add: we’ll look for the donkey and just hope it’s not chilling between spine bushes in the middle of the Sanctuary. So no guarantees here…

The adoption fee is 175 dollars for one year. Of course it would be wonderful if you’d be able to help take care of ‘your child’ for a longer period of time but you can decide every year whether you’d like to extend the adoption or not. If you don’t, the adoption ends automatically.

If you have any questions, please email us.
