Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge Society


"To provide a safe and permanent home for neglected, abused and surrendered donkeys."

The Donkey Refuge has been rescuing donkeys for over 20 years.  The donkeys arrive from all over Western Canada, Alaska and the Yukon Territories.  We currently have over 100 donkeys in our care and their ages range from between 25 to 30 years.  We provide a permanent home for the senior donkeys who require extra care, warm barns, special diets and extra farrier, dental and veterinarian care. 

As a Registered Charity we host Fundraising Events throughout our Open Season from May 1st to September.  We are also open 5 days a week from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Our open hours give the visitors an opportunity to meet the donkeys and hear their stories.  

The Donkey Refuge Farm  is located on a farm in the Historical Turtle Valley.   We invite you to come out and enjoy a day with the donkeys.  Coffee is alway on and we have a Donkey Shoppe full of donkey souvenirs for your shopping pleaseure.
