River Link Sanctuary is a place where you can leave your troubles at the gate and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, all whilst visiting our beautiful animals.
It all began in 2010, when a childhood memory of working with the New Brighton Donkeys lead our founder to purchase 4 of her own. The intention was to bring back donkey rides to the beach as it reminded her of how happy she was as a child.
Soon 4 donkeys became 9, along with 4 rescued horses (they were due to go to the meat trade) Years later, our family has certainly grown and we now provide a safe and loving home for our beautiful donkeys, horses, sheep and rabbits.
Our animals our housed over 3 sites, including Greenacres Animal Park where our donkeys are living a happy and free life alongside some of our ponies and horses.
Disclaimer- Our donkeys are now retired so we do not offer rides anymore, they are enjoying a peaceful and tranquil life here at the Sanctuary.
Our amazing team of volunteers are committed to helping our animals in anyway possible... Think you would be a good fit? Head on over to our contact page and drop us a message!
We want to develop our Sanctuary by creating a local farm project including a community Vegetable Garden and Café. We also want to link our Pets As Therapy (PAT) schemes to help improve Mental Health and Welfare for several different target groups throughout the local area.
