The Aruba Donkey Sanctuary presently takes care of more than 100 donkeys without any form of subsidy. Therefore we are totally dependent on sponsors, donations and especially the adoptions. One donkey costs quite a lot of money, money which is needed for food, medical treatment and the maintenance of the park.
For that reason we have set up an adoption program. Everybody can adopt a donkey for the amount of AWG 360 (US$200.00, €138,50) per year. There are donkeys waiting for adoption NOW.
One donkey may have more than one adoption parent due to the cost of care.
Your adoption is for a period of one year and you can select your favorite donkey. They come in all sorts, shapes, colors and sizes! When you have chosen your adoptive donkey its photo with your name as the adoption parent on it will be published on the adoption page of our website.
As an adoption parent you will receive a great T-shirt on which everyone can read that you have adopted a donkey on Aruba. And we will inform you regularly about the welfare of our donkeys throughout the year and you will receive our periodic newsletter by mail.
Of course, you can also adopt a donkey as a club, school or company. For companies we have implemented a special rate of AWG. 1.200 (US$685) per year .
If this option appeals to you and you wish to support the preservation of our Aruban donkey helping to provide them a better life, please go to our website
and select your favorite donkey.
