The Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, based in San Angelo, TX, is currently working on wild burro projects in Arizona, California, and Nevada in conjunction with the federal government. Burros are a non-native species in the US and can quickly overpopulate in deserts, causing destruction to ecosystems, competition with indigenous species, and damage to Native American sites.
PVDR uses humane techniques to rescue these burros. The animals are then chipped, vetted, and then shipped to a PVDR training facility to be made ready for adoption. Burros deemed unadoptable due to medical conditions are moved to PVDR’s main facility in Texas, where they receive care for life. Burros deemed too wild or aggressive for adoption are placed on one of Peaceful Valley’s sanctuaries, where they too receive care for life.
PVDR is currently seeking adopters, and volunteers to become satellite adoption centers for PVDR. Learn more at pvdr.org.
