It’s been far too long since I posted on our For the love of donkeys page.

Thank you to Kim who sent us this very sweet story to share with you:

I work at our local SPCA and we have a summer camp for kids. So far this summer, we’ve gone to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada 3x for our field trip. It is a fantastic place that deserves more recognition. Can you believe Ontario has TWO donkey sanctuaries?!?

Anyways, a reporter from our local paper recently went along on a trip with us. You can see the story and video here: http://www.thespec.com/news/local/article/575359–donkey-doody-duty-builds-character

And you can check out the sanctuary’s website too… http://www.thedonkeysanctuary.ca/

And, since most of you are donkey fans, I’m putting in a plug for a new page I recently started on Facebook: For the Love of Donkeys. While I began the page as a forum to talk about and bring a stop to the practice of using donkeys as a training tool for roping horses, things are now at a bit of a standstill with our local government. Are you surprised?

In the meantime, I’ve found a plethora of happy stories that exist out there about donkeys – all over the world! I hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I’m enjoying finding them. We want the world to know how wonderful donkeys are! ♥
