We are pleased to announce our Annual “Lunch with the Longears” is set for May 6, 2023

Lunch with the Longears event is your opportunity to meet all of our donkeys and spend some quality time getting to know what our rescue is all about.

Come mingle with the donkeys, take lots of pictures, and get all the donkey hugs you want. You will be allowed to go into the paddocks with the donkeys, so plan and dress appropriately.

Tickets are $20 per person, including children (for safety reasons, we ask that all children be over the age of 5). Tickets are non-refundable.

This year we will have a food vendor on site for you to be able to purchase your lunch.  Kay Melts food truck will be here serving delicious grilled cheese sandwiches as well as a couple of burger options.  All of her meals are served with chips and a drink.  Feel free to bring chairs or a blanket to sit on to enjoy your lunch. We have lots of open space for everyone to enjoy a nice afternoon having Lunch with the Longears.

Time: we will begin allowing guests to visit at 11 am, and we will need to wrap things up by 2 pm. Please don’t arrive later than 1 pm. We love our guests and are happy to share this rescue and the donkeys with everyone. However, there is a lot of work our staff must get to in the afternoon, and we ask that everyone leave by 2 pm.

Rain date will be May 13th.

SAVE THE DATE!   We have set a date for the Annual Dinner with the Donkeys on October 7, 2023.  Tickets are NOT available yet.  Stay tuned for more information.


We have scheduled our 2023 Donkey Visits!  Details are on the Want to Visit page.

Just because you can’t be here in person is no reason to miss out on a visit! We thought our friends and supporters might enjoy spending a little time with some of the donkeys.

Watch our 2020 video, Virtual Visit with the Donkeys, for some virtual donkey love!




Little Longears hosts annual events to help raise funds and to give our friends and followers an opportunity to hang with the donkeys!
