Nerja Donkey Sanctuary Announces Its Closure

Latest News Tuesday 10th of June 2014

The very popular Nerja Donkey Sanctuary, on the road outside the town towards Torrox, has announced its closure at the end of this month, saying that problems with funding, premises and council licenses have prompted the decision. The donkeys will move to the El Refugio Del Burrito in Antequera, but the other animals, including pigs, cats and dogs are looking for new homes.

The full statement from the Donkey Sanctuary is below:-

“After 10 years of hard work, Nerja Donkey Sanctuary is closing at the end of June.

We have decided to close the charity: it has been a very emotional choice, but Harriet feels it is for the best.

For the charity to continue we would need to move to new premises which would run to around 10,000 Euros.

At the moment the charity does not have the right licences. In order to get these we need to move. We would also need to obtain building permissions and all of this requires a lot of time and money, neither of which we have.

The donkeys are moving to El Refugio Del Burrito in Antequera. Chuleta is also going to Antequera. Carretta and Espanyola will stay with Harriet. Shaggy is moving to Frigliana, Chispa, Rosie and Poppy to Coin, Siloueta to Marbella.
