About

How it all began...

The Scottish Borders Donkey Sanctuary was started by Mrs Rosemary Dale, at The Holmes, St Boswells, in the autumn of 2003.

In the beginning she had two donkeys and in a very short time this increased to 23.

Here we are now, some 17+ years later and we have 150 donkeys under our umbrella. We have chosen specially selected homes to rehome 46 donkeys on our behalf.

At this time we also home 4 llamas, 5 pigs, 5 peafowl, 10 ponies and 4 mules.

We would like to thank you very much for visiting our website. Your support is very much appreciated.
