We loved the cute miniature donkeys, and also the goats and pigs. There is a small shop as well. It is a pleasant drive to Turtle Valley.

Such a lovely setting at the refuge and in all of the Turtle Valley. Take a drive up and plan to spend a little or a longer time. There are picnic tables and lots of grassy spots. Take you time and just commiserate with the donkeys both big and small. With a little luck they will bray for you and... More

this was a lovely place to visit, the donkeys are well cared for and the cause is so worthy.....a tranquil setting that the donkeys so deserve..pack a lunch and take a break, the walk up to see the miniatures can be quite hot in the summer.

The donkeys are endearing as are the people who look after them. Fun for the whole family. Phone for driving directions and hours of operation. Dogs are welcome here as long as they don't bother the donkeys. Take a picnic - it's a nice place to spend an hour or two.

This is the perfect place to spend a day. Bring a picnic lunch and use one of the tables under the trees. There are so many fabulous rescued donkeys here and each one has his/her own story and personality. You will fall in love when you see those big soulful eyes. Shirley and Rob are the owners of this property... More

If you are vacationing in the Chase/Sorrento/Shuswap area, you must pay this little place a visit. It's a peaceful and loving sanctuary for donkeys who have been rescued and given a better existence. The special needs area for those animals that have been particularly traumatized through life experiences was especially rewarding. The staff and volunteers are angels - they genuinely... More
