Save the Brays Donkey Rescue

A nonprofit organization

When forgotten and misunderstood, we step in. 

Save the Brays Donkey Rescue is Minnesota's only donkey rescue, committed to these gentle animals.

We are a safe haven for donkeys (and occasionally mules ). Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home donkeys, and also educate the public on the endless possibilities of these loving long ears!

Your support helps rescue donkeys from neglect, kill pens, and mistreatment, and provides a place for them to land safely. Please consider a donation to help us do the needed work of caring for these gentle and misunderstood animals. 
We average 60 donkeys in the rescues care at any given time. 2021 we have taken in 79 longears already, with that number increasing regularly.

REHABILITATION: Donkeys typically come to us with major health needs due to neglect, abuse, or inappropriate care. Donkeys often arrive severely emaciated or overweight and with untreated injuries or long curved hooves from years of no trimming. Every donkey that arrives at our farm receives the vet and farrier care they need to become healthy again. They also receive training from experienced handlers so they can begin to build trust in people.

ADOPTION: Each year we adopt out more donkeys than the last. Every donkey that goes to an adoptive home has been physically rehabilitated and trained with basic ground manners so they can lead a happy and healthy life.

LONG-TERM CARE: Some donkeys are unable to be adopted due to ongoing health, emotional, or training needs. Save the Brays commits to the long-term care of these donkeys so they will always have a safe and healthy home. 

EDUCATION: We education the public about the wonderful qualities of donkeys, care of donkeys and mules, appropriate jobs for donkeys, and how to help these misunderstood animals. 

Your support makes a huge difference with every dollar going toward the food, care, and home for these animals.
