The PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary

Welcome to the PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary!

PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary will be closed to visitors until further notice for the safety of volunteers and our visitors due to the situation of the COVID-19 virus. If you would like to make a donation to our sanctuary please click on the link below:



Sheila Burns - Founder, proprietor, but definitely not in charge!

We are dedicated to the rescue, protection, and rehabilitation of abused, neglected, and unwanted donkeys, mules and hinnies.

We also provide an information hoof-way to educate the public: the donkey is not a stubborn, dumb or vicious animal; but a stoic, loyal and very intelligent animal who will risk its life to protect its charges, including humans.

Thanks for visiting and donations are always very much appreciated!

PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary is a registered Canadian charity and does provide tax receipts. For further information please call Sheila 905-352-2772 or
