Centro de Acolhimento do Burro – The Donkey Sanctuary

galeria_21_2

While in my grand father’s birthplace (Pena Branca) we had a chance to peek at the donkeys and while doing so I’ve discovered they now have a sanctuary for end-of-life, diseased, mistreated and/or otherwise not cared for donkeys.

We didn’t enter because at the time I was unaware we could do so. Once home I’ve done a bit of research on the matter and yes we can visit the sanctuary, and we can even volunteer there! How cool is that :)

It isn’t a government project so they accept donations as well. Their website can be visited here: Centro de Acolhimento do Burro
