Longhopes Donkey Shelter (3-4)
The Longhopes Donkey Shelter was incorporated January 2000 but began in 1998 when founder, Kathy Dean, looked for her own donkeys. She knew there were unwanted donkeys needing homes but she was unable to find them, because they were usually sold for slaughter. Wanting to offer an alternative, Kathy learned that rescuing donkeys was impossible without a facility where the donkeys could be rehabilitated and trained until a new owner was found. In August 1999 Kathy and her husband Alan Miller bought 20 acres in Bennett and created an equine shelter to serve donkeys in the Rocky Mountains. Join us as we tour the facility. Fee includes transportation and tour. Please bring a sack lunch to enjoy at the Longhopes Donkey Shelter. Trip deadline date: Monday August 4.
