“I looked up the Donkey Wardrobe and fancy a couple of Christmas collars for our girls!!!”

Amy Swift, Animal Writer

Heaven to me is standing in a field full of donkeys. These wise, old creatures are gentle, sociable and inquisitive. Hardy and nimble, donkeys still provide a lifeline for millions of families in parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and South America, carrying essential materials and provisions, often working for long hours in high temperatures.

Donkeys possess deeply therapeutic qualities, acting as a calming influence on other animals and providing endless comfort to people. Time spent with donkeys is different. The world slows down. Donkeys have the ability to simply be.

“To me they are the most beautiful, and the most underrated, animals in the world…” Dr Elisabeth Svendsen, MBE and founder of The Donkey Sanctuary (1930-2011)

  1. So great to find you. I am a holistic nutritionist with an unwell hand reared donkey goal. Do you have an email to contact you on or are you available for consultation? Would appreciate your help so much!! Marissa

  2. Hi Amy, just came across Donkey Time. It seems an extraordinarily rich source of information about donkeys around the world. Congratulations on all your work! Eseltjiesrus in South Africa once had a database of donkey sanctuaries around the world – I wonder if they have shared that with you – perhaps you have them all listed in your blogs already. Best wishes, Stephen
