Peaceful Valley has many great donkeys available for adoption throughout the United States.


In order for a donkey to be considered "adoptable" it must meet certain criteria:

    1    Donkey must be people friendly

    2    Donkey must accept a halter

    3    Donkey must stand for trimming


There are certain rules and guidelines required by Peaceful Valley:

    1    Only geldings and jennets are available for adoption

    2    Adopted donkeys cannot be bred

    3    Adequate shelter and fencing must be provided (requirement varies by region)

    4    Donkeys must be kept on adopter's property (no boarding facilities)

Male Foal castration addendum.


Adoption fees vary by state, please contact your local adoption center for exact amount. Adoption fees are non-refundable and are tax deductible.  Miniature donkeys have a higher adoption fee.


Once we have received the application, it will be reviewed by our National Adoption Coordinator and forwarded to the Satellite Adoption Center nearest you. If you have any questions regarding our donkey adoptions please contact us at adopt@pvdr.org
