Prizes galore for the new Aruban Donkey Sanctuary

Aruba Bound
The realization of the much-needed new donkey sanctuary at Bringamosa is around the corner. More than 140 donkeys will be overjoyed with their spacious new playground and sparkling buildings. At this time the donkeys are spread out across several locations on the island; some even dwelling in a private garden. The best-known donkey location is Santa Lucia, where throngs of visitors and locals visit the donkeys. Through the years, Santa Lucia has become one of Aruba’s main tourist attractions, but it has become too cramped for so many animals. A new, larger donkey sanctuary is needed, but it is an expensive undertaking. Fundraisings and sponsoring are of the essence.

Aramis would like some friends and family members

Aruba Bound
We would like to introduce Aramis to you, one of the donkeys that has found a home at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary. We have never seen a donkey that was so easily accepted by the herd as Aramis. Normally it takes quite a while before the herd accepts a newcomer, but with Aramis and his friend Ninja it went without a hitch. We only separated them for one night, but one noticed that the herd was not opposed to this gorgeous, dark grey donkey. So put into the herd, and loving every moment at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary. Aramis can look forward to staying a long, long time with us, as he is just four years old.

Amadeus would welcome friends and family members

Aruba Bound
We would like to introduce Amadeus to you, a donkey that has found a home at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary. Two weeks after his mother Bunny and big bro Maestro were brought in at the sanctuary, little Amadeus was born. The volunteers at the sanctuary knew that Bunny was pregnant, but they did not know when the happy occasion of Amadeus’ birth would be. Pregnancy in donkeys takes between 11 and 14 months. When the volunteers came into the corral in the morning, a healthy, cute donkey boy was curiously looking at them.

At this time the ratio between male and female donkeys is 60-40, so the ladies are loving the attention. They are thriving!
