Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary is based at Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, Nr. Wallingford in South Oxfordshire and has been a registered charity since July 2000. The Sanctuary looks after over 130 donkeys, many of who arrived with some or all of the problems associated with neglect and abuse.

Our Donkey Adoption Scheme is a great way to support our work looking after the donkeys. Recipients will receive an adoption pack which includes a certificate, two photographs, newsletter and information about their adopted donkey. There are ten donkeys to choose from, all with their own special story. Adoptions can be done online at www.donkeyrescue.co.uk or please ask for an adoption form to be posted.

The sanctuary is currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, but we look forward to welcoming visitors soon. Please contact the office or check their website for updates. For more, why not visit the sanctuary's Facebook or youtube channel.

As we head towards Valentine’s Day, how do you celebrate this special day and show someone you genuinely love them? For several hundreds of years, giving someone one or more red roses has been a symbol of true love and romantic adoration. But how did they come to have such significance?
