Donkey Diaries is a non-profit animal rescue center with 6 beautiful donkeys that have found a peaceful home to live. Their sole purpose now is to live happy, comfortable lives, and bring peace and joy to all who get to meet them. They also have two little rescue piggy friends, and many chickens.
Adopted from Wet Nose, Bubbles was a very young jack foal when he arrived. He has a lot of character and thinks he is a Labrador.
Bubbles likes to be the center of attention, and will use any opportunity to climb into a car of walk into the office.
Snowy is our unicorn! Originally from Onderstepoort, he has one of the softest natures, and biggest tummies, often mistaken to be pregnant!
Snowy is quite shy, but loves to be brushed. He will close his eyes and fall asleep whilst being brushed.
Junior was originally found as a young foal on the side of the road, shivering next to his dead mother.
A very soft boy, more skittish than the rest, but very loving once you’ve earned his trust. He loves sweet potatoes and nibbling on your fingers.
Jezebel is sweet, but strong-minded! We are unsure how our farrier has not demanded danger pay after trimming her hooves!
She will spit her treats back at you if they do not meet her standards, but we love Jezebel and her rebellious ways.
Adopted from Wet Nose, Poncho is the most abused of our donkeys. Nearly blind and with many scars, he is testimony to how tough life can be for a donkey in the township.
The most trusting of all the donkeys, Poncho is happy to be cuddled and fed peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves apples.
Charlie came from Onderstepoort, and is our “Old Lady”. She has a gentle personality, but loves attention and carrots!
Charlie has some lung problems, and hence gets dressed up in warm pajamas on cold nights.
Molly, rescued as a 5 week old baby, is a sweet little piggy, loves to be scratched, and won’t say no to a delicious treat of any kind.
Molly loves attention, and soaking in a mud bath is her favorite past-time.
Wors is the laziest of our crew! He is where the saying “eating like a pig” stems from. He is a very sweet soul, and has two hobbies, eating and sleeping!
When you scratch his belly he will collapse and roll on his back, expecting a tummy rub!
