Review for Longhopes Donkey Shelter Inc, Bennett, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I adopted two donkeys from Longhopes six years ago and have been supporters ever since. They do a fantastic job of matching people and donkeys. We went sure we were going to adopt a mother and son for a driving team - but there was no connection. The next pair were adorable, but very needy, and the director Kathy carefully steered us away knowing we also had a busy farm life and horses. Then she introduced us to Ty and Reggie. They were a bonded but mismatched pair consisting of a mini and a standard. They are the light of our lives to this day. All donkeys for adoption are socialized and trained in the basics. They have a great staff of volunteers, a neat gift shop, and several events every year to introduce their donkeys to the public. The facility is always immaculate and every animal is loved. Although we haven't adopted more donkeys we try to stay involved through their EARS sponsorship program and additional donations.
