Congratulations to the Donkey Sanctuary Aruba Upon Celebrating Their 25th Anniversary

Aruba Bound
The first donkeys came to Aruba from Spain at the end of the 1400’s. They were imported because there was a need for means of transportation for people and goods. Early in the 20th century there were some 1400 donkeys on the island.

Everything was fine until the first cars hit the roads; in the 1950’s the number of cars had increased a lot and donkeys became redundant. They were released in Aruba’s countryside and that was not always a good idea: the Aruban donkey became almost extinct; this was due to measures of the government as well as to car accidents.
