About Our Shelter:

Longhopes has been rescuing donkeys since 1999. Over 500 donkeys have been rehabilitated and rehomed.
We are located on 40 acres east of Denver. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 animal charity.
We strongly believe donkeys need companionship of their own species. We encourage adopters to be active with their donkeys but do not allow our donkeys to be purchased for breeding.
All donkeys are provided basic medical care and training before being made available for adoption. Donkeys who are unsuitable for rehoming are provided permanent sanctuary. All records on the donkeys are made available to the adopter.
Adopters are allowed to return the donkeys to Longhopes if the donkeys become unwanted.
We provide free consultation and education to any donkey owner or prospective owner.
Longhopes is the administrator of a castration, euthanasia and training grant to assist donkey owners.
Longhopes an accredited animal sanctuary by the GFAS.

Normal adoption fees are $550 per pair but may be higher for well trained donkeys. The fee for some donkeys is less. Part or all of the adoption fee is a non-refundable donation.
The adopter must sign a contract which includes a 1 year probationary adoption and requires the donkeys to be returned to Longhopes if the placement is unsuccessful.

Why should you adopt?

horses can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a horse for sale or finding a horse breeder, adopting a horse from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a horse to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a horse. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your horse needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a horse. There are different types of horses including Andalusian, Appaloosa, Appendix, Arabian, Belgian, Clydesdale, Curly Horse, Donkey/Mule/Burro/Hinny, Draft, Friesian, Gaited, Grade, Gypsy Vanner, Haflinger, Lipizzaner, Miniature, Missouri Foxtrotter, Morgan, Mustang, Norwegian Fjord, Paint/Pinto, Palomino, Paso Fino, Percheron, Peruvian Paso, Pony - Chincoteague, Pony - Connemara, Pony - Dales, Pony - Dartmoor, Pony - Fell, Pony - New Forest, Pony - Other, Pony - Shetland, Pony - Welsh, Pony - of America, Quarterhorse, Rocky Mountain, Saddlebred, Standardbred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Thoroughbred, Trakhener, and Warmblood.
