donkeys, horses, cats and dogs, the volunteers here do an amazing job. We didn't stay long, but took carrots and a donation, and had a fab walk, even though the weather was stormy!

Good to see the work that is being done- housing these donkeys and other animals. Can wander round by yourself and make a donation as it's free. The highlight was the tiny puppies that we played with.

We stumbled across the rescue when making our way back to the resort after a day out. A beautiful place with very lovely people running it. Wanted to take home some of the dogs that were in the rescue. Defiantly worth a visit.
