We are very sad to have to inform you of the tragic passing of Dillon this morning.

He showed signs of discomfort last week and following veterinary tests was shown have chronic liver disease.

After treating with various drugs and supplements recommended and administered by the vets and staff here at the Sanctuary, Dillon showed no sign of improvement only a further deterioration in his condition, the decision was taken to put him to sleep.

Dillon was over Twenty years old and a firm favourite with both visitors and staff.

He was a very large dark coloured Donkey and had to be understood to be handled.

At times he could be difficult and impossible to catch but once haltered became quiet and canny.

We will all miss these big fluffy ears.

RIP Dillon
