    Oh wow, I may do that. We will be there for it and we are huge animal lovers. I was actually doing some research about the donkey sanctuary and I read they allow people do volunteer with helping out there when they are vacationing. Have you been there Andrea? We went to the Ostrich Farm last year and got such a kick out of it, we were thinking of visiting with the donkeys this year.

    Well worth a visit !!
    From my review:
    Aruba Donkey Sanctuary
    http://www.arubadonkey.org
    This was another fun diversion from the beach for a few hours. The day we were there it was hot and surely dry and dusty, but seeing all those happy donkeys devouring the apples and carrots we had brought for them was priceless. Even more special was being able to meet the two sweet babies Mirna born in February and Roulette born in January.

    A lesson we learned was that upon entry, you will be swarmed by the donkeys if they know you have the food. Hold the food above your head and walk through and up to the building where the store and refreshments are. It has a nice patio which is fenced in. There you can slice up the apples, behind the protection of a railing and feed the donkeys one by one.

    The sanctuary is run entirely by volunteers and all of the donkeys are fed with hay purchased solely through donations. There is no admission but donations are appreciated and this organization is surely a worthwhile cause. Their next goal is raising $300,000 in order to build a fence around their future location in Bringamosa. I have already added the T-Shirt Hay Donation to my Christmas list"

    Aww, Lisa love the picture of your daughter feeding those precious babies. Already spoke to my hubby, we are bringing our sneakers. And we will also pay them a visit as well. Thanks for the great reviews.
    Andrea the first link worked, the second one didn't. I am super excited, anything to help the animals, I never say no.
