El Paraíso del Burro

Adopted donkeys

A few of our younger and healthier donkeys are available for adoption. If you are thinking of adopting a donkey, we always prefer that you adopt two donkeys together, as donkeys are social animals who are not happy living alone. You must bear in mind that a donkey needs shelter from inclement weather and should not be kept as a “grass mower”. Donkeys should not eat too much fresh green grass and their diet should be supplemented with straw and hay. We also request a donation to this charity.

If you are interested in adopting one of our donkeys, please feel free to contact us.

May 2019: Pancho and his donkey friend Marieke were recently adopted by Jim and Barbara, who straight away fell in love with them and are very happy to have them in their family.

Fito and Romeo have been adopted by Andres, a friend of the Donkey Paradise, and live together in a beautiful area of Piloña.

Cora and Rebecca were originally rescued in poor conditions in Cantabria and brought to live at the Paraiso del Burro with another 3 donkeys. They are now called Pili and Lulu, and have a lovely new home together in Fontebona, the farm of an association where people live self-sufficiently in Lozana, Piloña.
