HOW TO HELP
Giving abused, neglected, abandoned, sick, or injured donkeys a second chance is the heart
of Zen Donkey’s mission.
Your financial support is critical in helping us to help not only the donkey’s but all of the
other creatures in our care.
100% of all donations received by this organization go directly to the care, feeding,
housing and general benefit of our animals. Zen Donkey Sanctuary is run completely by
volunteers and no portion of donations received goes to support salaries or personal
interests of any kind.
YOU NEED TO KNOW
Donkeys are under threat worldwide.
The worlds donkeys are facing a population crisis because of the huge demand for their
skins and meat in China, where they are used to make health foods and traditional medicine.
Hundreds are shipped to China weekly from the US alone.
The price of donkey meat is surging all over the world and especially in Africa.
In the US, hundreds are rounded up and sent to slaughter daily.
In the US and Mexico, donkeys are used for roping; extensive legislative efforts continue
on their behalf to outlaw this in-humane “sport.”
Donkeys are, without a doubt, the most mistreated farm animals in the US.
These are only a few of the many reasons why we have dedicated our lives for the past 30 years
on behalf of these most wonderful animals.
Your donation counts! Through your generosity we will be able to help as many as we possibly can
afford. The Zen Donkey Sanctuary team, and the donkeys that we serve, are deeply grateful for the
donations that make our work possible.
