“A must go and see”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

Whilst You are in Nerja a trip to the donkey sanctuary is a definite must. Take carrots and apples for the donkeys. The volunteers are all amazing and truly care for all that they help. We just wished we had taken some dog food too as there were some gorgeous puppies. Not too far away from the centre so easy to walk to. There really are some lovely genuine caring people around that make a difference.

“Great for children”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We have taken our 6 year old here on every holiday nearby since she was 2. What a good place for children to visit. You can feed the animals and wander around at your own pace. We always take a big bag of carrots, which are very gratefully received and in return get a bucket of mixed food to feed the variety of animals. The volunteers who run the sanctuary do a fantastic job, and appreciate the support of visitors.

“A hidden British jewel”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Just been to the sanctuary to see not just the donkeys but the six pot-bellied pigs, a sheep and a couple of dogs, lovingly cared for by a sizeable number of ALL BRITISH volunteers. A wonderful advertisement for the British love for their animals. Congratulations to them all!

“so so sad”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

it is heart breaking to see the donkeys at the santuary, but please go and support the people who kindly do all this as volunteers. I paid a couple of euros for I think 2 baskets of food for the donkey's. the food only consists of bits of stale bread and carrots but it is sadly all that is available. I will make sure we visit again next time and will make a larger donation, it plays on your mind after the visit, the animals are so well looked after, and are happy with very little, the people who run the santuary are so amazing, go and support them, lovely to be able to make the donkeys a little happy although your heart just wants to do so much more. well done Nerja Donkey Santuary xxx

“Children will love feeding the animals”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

So glad that some caring people are looking after the welfare of neglected animals. Worth half an hour of your time to support the work of these people. When we visited they were caring for 6 tiny abandoned puppies along with the horses, donkeys, pigs and a very fat sheep. They also welcome donations any of your leftovers after your holiday.
