El Paraíso del Burro

Adopted donkeys

A few of our younger and healthier donkeys are available for adoption. If you are thinking of adopting a donkey, we always prefer that you adopt two donkeys together, as donkeys are social animals who are not happy living alone. You must bear in mind that a donkey needs shelter from inclement weather and should not be kept as a “grass mower”. Donkeys should not eat too much fresh green grass and their diet should be supplemented with straw and hay. We also request a donation to this charity.

If you are interested in adopting one of our donkeys, please feel free to contact us.

Yoni has been adopted by a couple near Colunga who already had a donkey and wanted a companion donkey to live with him.


Fito and Romeo have been adopted by Andres, a friend of the Donkey Paradise, and live together in a beautiful area of Piloña.

Cora and Rebecca were originally rescued in poor conditions in Cantabria and brought to live at the Paraiso del Burro with another 3 donkeys. They now have a lovely new home together at Fontebona in Pilona.

Yonas is a young grey donkey about six years of age, and of course he has a lot of energy. He is the most dominant of the donkeys.
