Our values


Our values are compassion, collaboration and creativity


Compassion
The Donkey Sanctuary is above all else compassionate.  We never turn away from a donkey in need.  Donkeys and the people who rely on them for their livelihoods or to help them cope with physical, mental and emotional challenges, lie at the heart of everything we do.  We act as a global engine of caring, both for suffering donkeys and mules, and for all those people whose lives they touch.  We also foster a culture of caring for our staff, volunteers and supporters without whom none of our work would be possible.

Collaboration
The Donkey Sanctuary is collaborative in all its activities, working through a worldwide network of partners, communities and individuals.  We work inclusively with people frequently marginalised within their own countries and communities, whether due to poverty, ignorance, race, gender or disabilities.  We know that it is only together and in partnership that we can transform the lives of donkeys and the people who depend on them, wherever they are in the world. 

Creativity
The Donkey Sanctuary’s goals are ambitious but its resources are finite – which means that we must exercise creativity to meet the ambitious goals we set ourselves.  Whether this be in adapting locally available materials for donkey-friendly harness, tailoring our donkey assisted therapy activities to the unique needs of a vulnerable child, or reaching donkey-owning communities in the midst of man-made and natural disasters – creative thinking underpins everything we do.
