PUSLINCH – The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) is closed to the public but you can  visit some of their donkeys, mules and hinnies with their virtual visit series.

A donation to the sanctuary will give you access to a video link that shows a different paddock each week. Each visit will highlight individual donkeys including their background stories, interesting facts and unique personalities. 

 “We are giving people an opportunity to fall in love with our animals and learn more about our rescue work from the comfort of their own homes.” said Lesley Bayne, DSC executive director, in a press release.

Starting May 24, a video will premiere at 10 am each Sunday with DSC staff available to answer any questions viewers have. The visits will rotate between five groups of donkeys, hinnies and mules. The first virtual visit will be to the male donkeys' group. 

"Join the DSC for an up close and personal experience with these gentle yet often misunderstood animals," a DSC press release said. "Previous visitors will see a whole new side of this unique organization and the passionate people behind it."

The press release said the mission of the DSC is to provide a lifelong home to unwanted, neglected or abused Donkeys, Mules and Hinnies.
