Donations very much worth making (make one and you can take a can of drink from their fridge!) and you can adopt an animal for a year for just 20 euros. They live on donations so please do make one. As well as donkeys and horses there are some pigs, a sheep, some very friendly cats and this summer, a whole litter of puppies that were left there.
  • Worthwhile cause that is takes donations by paying for feed. Giving a good home for lots of animals, not just donkeys, and the chance to feed them makes you feel very humble.
