Our Residents

Our sanctuary residents would love to make your acquaintance!

We hope you enjoy reading about these little longears, and that you celebrate their recoveries along with us.

Little Longears began as and remains a rescue primarily for miniature donkeys, but standard and mammoth donkeys – as well as a few mules and ponies – also have found sanctuary here.

These donkeys are examples of how we change lives. Thank you to everyone who supports our rescue in many different ways.
