Donkeys for Sale

All of our donkeys come with a guarantee. If after four weeks they are not suitable for you we will take them back. All of our donkeys are to go to good, caring homes only and we strive to ensure that any you may buy from us are best suited to your requirements.

Care of our donkeys is our utmost concern and we maintain very high standards of welfare. Donkey Sanctuary representatives inspect our donkeys on occasions throughout the year and they are regularly checked over by vets and visited by the farrier to ensure they are fit and healthy and in top condition. If required, our donkeys can be vetted by a vet before purchase but this would incur an additional veterinary fee.

For welfare reasons a donkey should not be sold before it is six months old, not be ridden until it is four years old and only persons under eight stone and 16 years of age should be permitted to ride.
Delivery can be arranged - distance no object.

Things to do before buying donkeys

When looking to buy a donkey you need to be vigilant and make sure that the animal is suitable both for sale and for your purposes. Here are a few guidelines:

  • Get an independant second opinion: to check the health of the donkey and that it will be suitable for you.
  • Ask for a Donkey Sanctuary check: these are the people who know about donkeys and can reassure you about your prospective purchase. You can telephone them on 01395 578 222.
  • Get informed: attend one of the Donkey Sanctuary Courses which are held around the country free of charge.
If you have a donkey, or donkeys, which you can no longer care for or you wish to sell, please get in touch with us and we will either purchase them from you or give you help and assistance in finding a new owner.
