ABOUT US

Founded 30 years ago, the Donkey and Mule Society of South Australia has been working hard with the help of members and volunteers to help donkeys and mules in South Australia.

We are dedicated to the promotion, welfare and enjoyment of donkeys and mules.

 

Our work is dedicated to bringing together people, donkeys and mules for the enjoyment and enrichment of both.

 

The Society also organises shows and social events, distributes information and generally promotes the many benefits of being owned by these wonderful animals!

Get in touch to learn how you can take part and also make a difference.

We would love to hear from you.

Regular visits from a hoof care provider such as a farrier, a barefoot trimmer or an equine podiatrist are an important part of keeping your donkey’s hooves healthy.
