The Barn (Home)

Welcome!  We are glad to see you here today!

Pepper, 2005

Please note:  Like a lot of rescues & sanctuaries at this time, we are over full & even have some in foster homes.  We've had good adoptees call that can no longer afford to feed their donkeys, some local feed stores are charging over $20 a bale, many are at $19.50.   

We will sell some of our hay to the adopters that can't afford hay, otherwise those 2 donkeys would have to come back to us & add to our overpopulation.  There are only so many foster homes available, so that isn't a reliable answer if we do get calls.   

Unfortunately, at this time we can not offer sanctuary to any more donkeys.  Wish we could, but we have to "circle the wagons" for the ones that are our responsibility & under our care.   

Hopefully the price of hay will go down considerably, people can once again take care of their animals & we will be able to open our gates to those that need to be here. 


Forever Home Donkey Rescue is a private sanctuary and not registered as a 501c3 non-profit organization with the Internal Revenue Service.  We are located in Benson, AZ, which is east of Tucson.  The donkeys, mules and horse that reside here thank you for visiting our web page.

Forever Home Donkey Rescue welcomes volunteers to come out and play with our residents.  Our animals love to be brushed and scratched.  If you live in or near the Benson area and have some time to spare, please contact us about coming out.  Older children are welcome to help groom, but younger kids are encouraged to just look and pet.  Adult supervision please!

If you don't have the time to volunteer, donations are always appreciated.  Since we are a private sanctuary, we do not receive financial help from anyone but our donors.
