  • Need


    At the moment the donkeys are living in stables at night and out in the field during the day. We wish to build them a barn as not only will it mean better facilities for them, but also allow us to rescue more donkeys as there will be more room for them.


    The new barn will give us the much needed space to put our current donkeys in it as well as future rescued ones.

  • Aims

    What success will look like

    When the donkey barn has been built and the donkeys have moved in.

  • Impact


    The donkeys will have their own area and barn, where specialist care can be administered.




    Donors will receive a monthly report on the building project, as well as being able to visit Hopefield, should they wish to do so, to see how progress is coming along.

  • Background


    On Hopefield's site in Brentwood, Essex.


    Hopefield's donkeys are currently in horse stables, and we would love to build them a new barn, so not only can they have a home all together but also we can rescue more donkeys.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    We have over 300 rescued animals currently under our care, including six donkeys. A new donkey barn would help us rescue even more donkeys.
