Durham Donkey Rescue

Set in the County Durham countryside, Durham Donkey Rescue is a home for all donkeys who need our help.

About Us

Durham Donkey Rescue is dedicated to providing a safe home for any donkeys in need, whether this be a result of neglect, cruelty or because their owners cannot look after them any more. Set in 120 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside, our site is currently home to a herd of ten donkeys. Our rescues live alongside a number of rare breed miniature donkeys, who were the first members of our herd and inspired the love of donkeys upon which the rescue is founded.

If you know of a donkey in need of re-homing, please contact us and we can provide advice and/or discuss their collection.
