Burro Foundation

Because we love them, we hold a space in our ranch to maintain donkeys safe, well-fed, and ready to go for a walk with anyone.

OUR MISSION

We aim to transform the quality of life of donkeys by bringing people closer to this intelligent, curious, and loving animal. We propose positive human-donkey interactions to change the public’s understanding of the donkey’s cultural, social, and biological role.

DID YOU KNOW?

There are around 50 million donkeys and mules worldwide, most abandoned, abused, or living in bad conditions.

“When people can afford a vehicle, they sell or abandon their donkeys – and feral donkeys are a rising problem around the world…” (www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk.com). 

In the desert environment, a donkey can hear the call of another donkey 60 miles away; they have far more prominent ears than horses. Their large ears also help keep them cool. The wealth of the Egyptians was due to the precious metals carried in Africa by donkeys. They don’t like the rain, and being out in it for long periods can damage their health as their fur is not waterproof.

Donkeys have an incredible memory – they can recognize areas and other donkeys they were with up to 25 years ago. Because food is scarce in the desert, donkeys utilize 95% of what they eat, which means their manure is not a very good fertilizer for the land. Their digestive system can break down inedible vegetation and extract moisture from food more efficiently. (www.mikesdonkeys.co.uk) 

Wild donkey herds are small and use their loud bray to keep in contact with each other over long distances. Donkeys can live an average of 40 years old if they have a good life.
