El Paraiso del Burro - The Donkey Paradise

It has been a while since we posted about the Donkey Sanctuary here in Asturias. Luis and I help out on a small scale by running the blogs: Donkey Paradise and El Paraiso del Burro. I have been collecting information for the new website and Luis is now a member of the newly established Association. We have had a few events over summer to try and raise the profile and increase funding for the Sanctuary but it is hard here in Spain as animals are perceived very differently to what I am used to in the UK.

Marleen who owns and runs the sanctuary get lots of practical help from a range of volunteers both local, English and Spanish and visitors from other parts of the world that are either connected to Marleen or come through Help Ex or WWOOF programmes. 

I hope that we can continue to help where we can for the foreseeable future. I don't have a particular affinity with Donkeys however it seems that the people connected to such projects are just great people to be around and in small ways we enrich the lives of each other and of the animals that live in El Paraiso del Burro.

Why not take a look at the blogs and join our Facebook group/page.
