18th annual Donkey Day is on June 12

PUSLINCH - The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada will host its largest fundraising event of the year on June 12.

This year’s event will feature new activities for young and old, live entertainment, and donkeys.

Activities include a raffle, 50:50 draw and silent auction, Diamond Dogs (agility dogs), wagon rides, a Kid’s Fun Fest (activities and crafts), Donkey ’N U photos, demonstrations from Our Partners in Care, and more. Do not forget the Carrot Walk, with the stars of the day - the donkeys.

This year’s musical guests are Bry Webb, Lucas Stagg, Jessy Bell Smith, Jenny Omnichord, Music with Brian, and environmental children’s author Frank Glew.

The Sanctuary doors open from 11am to 4pm at 6981 Puslinch Township Concession 4. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children aged 3 to 18. Volunteers will be on site to help direct parking and provide guests with information about the sanctuary.

The sanctuary is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and protection of abandoned, neglected, or abused donkeys, mules, and hinnies.

Animals admitted to the sanctuary are given a lifelong home. Currently, it is home to 58 donkeys, 9 mules, with 36 on 17 foster farms throughout Ontario. The sanctuary does not receive government funding and relies solely on individual donations and fundraising events, like Donkey Day to operate. The sanctuary is now open to the public on Wednesdays and Sundays from May to October. For more information, visit
