El Paraiso del Burro was opened in 2007 by Marleen Verhoef. It is situated in a tranquil and beautiful valley near Arriondas. The Sanctuary provides care to retired and older Donkeys whose owners are no longer able to look after them.

For further information about the  Sanctuary or volunteering, or to make a donation please contact Marleen:

  2. I Have A Donkey That Can No Longer BeTaken Care Of Due To The Death Of The Owner
    Can You Help Me Out And Provide A Home For Him

    • Hi Tracy,

      Where do you live? Our donkey refuge is in Northern Spain. We can only offer refuge to donkeys in this area. If you live in the United Kingdom I would suggest you contact The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon. I hope you can find a good home for your donkey.

      Best wishes, Lynn

  3. Wij wensen Judith Roth en collega’s/vrijwilligers een gelukkig en gezond 2012.


    Atie en Pa Roth

  4. Hallo Marleen,
    wat een leuke site is dit, ik heb Nico gevraagd of hij een link op onze hollandse site naar deze site wil maken.
    Liefs vanuit een koud en nat Nederland.
