First and foremost we provide a permanent home and loving care to destitute, rescued donkeys. Since the founding of Eseltjiesrus we have cared for more than thirty donkeys at the Sanctuary and placed further numbers in approved foster homes. Each donkey is cared for and checked at least twice a day. Eyes and hooves are cleaned, fly repellant applied, and any little wounds or infections are treated. They are fed three different types of hay twice a day and the elderly or thin donkeys get bowls of soft food in a separate enclosure twice a day.
The site is intensively managed, irrigated, manure removed and fences checked. Great for kids- and you can adopt a donkey!
