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!
Enjoy the wonderful tour of PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary by Rob Quartly! Please share!

Patsy passed away peacefully at PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary on Tuesday June 12th in her 22nd year. She was born in Georgetown in Sheila's first barn, from a jenny named Alice Bluegown who Sheila had rescued that was so thin you could see every bone. Everything Sheila was giving her was going to her baby that Sheila didn't know existed. Because of the issues with her mother, Patsy aged faster than normal.
Patsy was 3 years old when she moved to PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary with Sheila. From putting her head into a bale of rotten hay that had been left, when Sheila was not home, Patsy became instantly blind even with immediate veterinarian care. She eventually had to have both eyes removed to make her more comfortable.
Patsy will be joining Amos and Jonathon Cupcake in donkey heaven, who were both Seeing Eye guide donkeys for her.
We will miss Patsy’s very loud bray, her lovely energy and giving her ear rubs that she enjoyed very much. Patsy will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
We appreciate monetary donations to help with ongoing vet care, hoof care, food and supplies for the sanctuary.
Of course I can accept a cheque directly. Please mail cheques made out to PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary to 1296 Bowmanton Rd. RR 4 Roseneath, Ontario, Canada, K0K 2X0
As we are a registered charity I will issue a tax receipt
Thank you PrimRose and Sheila
