Meet Our Mascot




Donation Information

Donations are tax deductible. Virginia Donkey Rescue was formed as a Virginia Non-Stock Corporation in 2015 and is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charity (81-0950183).  This is grass roots effort, with no funding currently, except from people like you who want to help Virginia’s donkeys.

How Donations are used.  We have no salaries and minimal overhead, so funds go directly to the donkeys and their care.  VDR is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors – there are no paid positions – and the use of Stonewall Acres Farm for Virginia Donkey Rescue’s operation is donated by VDR’s founder and President.  With the exception of a few overhead business expenses that can’t be avoided in a professionally managed non-profit, all donations go directly to the care of donkeys that have been surrendered to us and toward our low or no cost castration program. 

Each donkey that comes into our care costs a minimum of $360 for vet check, vaccines, microchip, worming, dental care, and farrier work.  Gelding is an extra $250 bringing the total to over $600.  That does not include feed, or anything thing out of the ordinary like blood tests.

Special Fundraising Drives. We may occasionally conduct special fund raising drives for equipment or supplies to help house or manage the donkeys, but those campaigns will be clearly identified, and the funds will be kept separate from our general operating funds.

Please help us help the donkeys by donating today.  Donations can be paid via bank card through our PayPal donation link/button on the upper right, or via check.  Checks can be mailed to:  Virginia Donkey Rescue, 414 Stonewall Rd., Concord, VA  24538

Employer Matching Funds - Many employers will match your charitable donations. Ask your human resources department if your employer is one of them and double your donation dollars. Some of the nationwide participating companies are: Home Depot,  Starbucks, Schwab Charitable Fund, Progressive Insurance, Oppenheimer Fund, and Allstate Insurance to name just a few.
