"Do not dream your life but live your dream"
It takes a lot of patience, time & knowledge (and we have dedicated
much love and attention) to save the great races of Andalusian or
Cordobian, the Catalan Giant and the Poiton donkeys, from extinction.
Apart from the daily care of our donkeys, we also have to renew and
maintain the stables and carry out a lot of other work.
The continuing expansion and upkeep of our website also takes a lot
of our time.
"Les Murtes" is not only a sanctuary and a breeding place for donkeys
in Spain but also an emergency centre of international reputation for
The running of our sanctuary is very expensive. We cannot do it
without external help.
Thanks to all of you who have supported us over the years.
To earn the money to look after the animals we opened a kantina at
the sanctuary, which serves excellent meals.
(It is essential to book your table and pre-order your meal)
We are closed Mondays, Tuesdays,Wednesdays
Money from the souvenir shop with gallery and the sale of feed helps
us to carry out our work.
We look forward to your visit.
