WELCOME TO THE PEACEFUL VALLEY DONKEY RESCUE'S
DONKEY ADOPTION PROGRAM
If you have any questions regarding our Donkey Adoption Program, please contact our main office at [email protected] or by calling 866-366-5731.
Before proceeding with filling out an adoption application, please take a moment and review our Donkey Adoption Policy.
Donkeys make amazing pets. They are smart, loyal and extremely affectionate.
Peaceful Valley has many great donkeys available for adoption throughout the United States. In order for a donkey to be considered "adoptable" it must meet certain criteria:
Donkey must be people friendly
Donkey must accept a halter
Donkey must stand for trimming
There are certain rules and guidelines required by Peaceful Valley:
Only geldings and jennets are available for adoption.
Adopted donkeys cannot be bred.
Adequate shelter and fencing must be provided (requirement varies by region).
Donkeys must be kept on adopter's property (no boarding facilities).
Donkeys must have equine companionship.
Donkeys will not be adopted as livestock guardians.
Households with whole uncastrated equine will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please call our office for details.
All PVDR Donkeys have had all of their vaccines.
All PVDR Donkeys come with guaranteed health. If the donkeys gets sick in the first 90 days, we will replace them.
To begin the process, simply fill out our Online Adoption Form.
Adoption fees are $350 for a single and $500 for a pair.
If your adopted donkey(s) are returned for any reason before six months, you will receive a refund less $100 for processing fee. Returned donkeys after six months, fees will not be refunded.
On the rare occasion that we have miniatures or mammoths, those fees are based on other factors and are typically higher.
You will need to submit photos of your equine shelter and turnout area via email to [email protected].
