The Donkey Sanctuary at Bringamosa is officially open!

Aruba Bound

The new Aruba Donkey Sanctuary at Bringamosa is officially open! Quite a lot of cheerful visitors to the Donkey Fair viewed the opening ceremony, which was done by the six volunteers, who started the sanctuary twenty years ago. Honorary guests Ramon and Maria Boekhoudt, Mevine Kock and Stewart Willems, Facundo Franken, Chito Paris and Johnnie Fingal cut a veggie cake and distributed it among the donkeys present as the official opening ceremony. Thus the move to Bringamosa, which offers the 130 donkeys and the 25.000 visitors a year a wonderful new location and the 20th anniversary of the sanctuary were jointly celebrated.

Donkey Sanctuary organizes a grand Donkey Fair

Aruba Bound
On Sunday, April 9 it is party time at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary at Bringamosa. On that day the sanctuary celebrates its 20th anniversary and its new complex at Bringamosa will be officially opened. The opening ceremony will be held at 11 am; the first volunteers who started the sanctuary twenty years ago will be the guests of honor. Without them the Donkey Sanctuary would not exist – many donkeys would be roaming around and Aruba would not have a major tourist attraction.

The Aruban Donkey Sanctuary organizes a wonderful raffle

Aruba Bound
Twenty years ago, in the month of April, the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary opened its doors. At the time there were many roaming herds of donkeys and the growing number of accidents with donkeys, injured donkeys and donkey abuse was the reason that a group of concerned local people got together to protect the animals. This was the start of the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary. Ten donkeys from Pos Chiquito were the first to be relocated to a safe haven; twenty years later the Sanctuary offers food and shelter to 130 donkeys. Volunteers take care of the herd, which has become one of the island’s major tourist attractions.

The Donkey Sanctuary in Aruba needs you!

Indeed, this is an appeal of the Donkey Sanctuary, which is in urgent need of volunteers. Due to their extended opening hours (daily from 9am to 4pm) and the increase in the number of donkeys at the shelter, they are sorely in need of more volunteers. They are caring for more than 130 donkeys, which are divided into two locations. And all of them need their feed, the grounds need to be cleaned and there are lots of other cores as well.

Donkey Sanctuary volunteers can often be found in booths and behind stands during different festivities and they receive visitors to the shelter. The number of visitors increases every year as well.

The first Donkey Calendar 2017 went to De Palm Tours

The new Donkey Calendar 2017 has been presented and, as is traditional, the first calendar went to somebody who has been of much importance to the Aruban Donkey Sanctuary. Warren Stanley, general manager of De Palm Tours, was the happy recipient of the first copy of the calendar. The Donkey Sanctuary has been included in the safari trips of De Palm Tours and thus a considerable number of visitors to the island gets to know the place. But aside from that De Palm Tours are actively involved in sponsoring as well and the volunteers of the Sanctuary may count on them in many instances.
