Since opening in 2021, we taken in over 450 donkeys who were abused, neglected and/or malnourished.

Those who cannot be adopted out are deemed sanctuary and live out their lives at the rescue.

Who We Are

Peaceful Pastures Donkey Rescue (PPDR) was founded to help prevent cruelty inflicted upon donkeys. Primarily focusing on donkeys with the United States, PPDR takes in abused, neglected, malnourished, ill and elderly donkeys and provides them medical, nutritional and emotional rehabilitation with the plan to later adopt them to carefully vetted loving homes. We also focus our efforts on educating the public regarding the plight of donkeys worldwide in order to bring about change in perception and treatment.
