The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) is the proud recipient of the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) Outstanding Equine Sanctuary Award for 2023! 

“This prestigious award recognizes our unwavering commitment to the well-being and protection of these incredible animals,” stated the DSC announcement on their Facebook page. 

“At the DSC, we’ve always believed that every donkey deserves care and a safe haven to call home. But we couldn’t have achieved this without the tireless work of our volunteers and staff, and the generosity of our supporters. 

“Thank you to the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries   (GFAS) for this incredible honour. We’re more motivated than ever to continue our mission and make a difference in the lives of equines in need.”

The GFAS is the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries. After rigorous review, the DSC was awarded Accredited status by the GFAS in September 2017, becoming the first equine sanctuary in Canada to be accredited by the GFAS.
