The Nerja Donkey Sanctuary, which for many years has been located on the main road from Nerja to Torrox, is being forced to search for a new home. The move comes as a result of the existing position being too close to the local school on Calle Antonio Ferrandiz, apparently according to health and safety regulations.

No timescale has been announced for the move, or the likely new location, although somewhere on the road out of town towards Frigiliana has been suggested.

The Nerja Donkey Sanctuary is staffed by volunteers, dedicated to rescuing, caring for and protecting donkeys, mules, horses and various other animals including a few dogs, cats, pigs and chickens. The sanctuary relies entirely on donations and receives no grants from the government. The Donkey Sanctuary is also a popular destination for holidaymakers who enjoy visiting the animals and feeding them carrots by hand.

This came as a very unpleasant shock when I opened this a few mins. ago. This one of my favorite places to visit here and also a friend who comes from Portugal gives a large donation each year. Why on earth has this just happened nnow and who is behind it? This sanctuary deserves a medal for the way they treat their animals on a very limited budget. The people who work there are dedicated and work so hard to keep those animals (most of which have been overworked or abused) healthy, and also bring them back to health with care, patience and love too.............
