We would like To introduce Buri to you, one of The donkeys that ﬁnd a home of the Aruban Donkey Sanctuary. He owes his name to the fact that he was found in sjabururi. That in itself is quite a story. At ﬁrst catching him was a breeze: together with someone from the ﬁre brigade we lured him into a garden, but then the main artery in an old wound in his behind burst and it became a bloody situation. Come and Visit Buri at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary!
Once in the trailer the vet was called and he came in to stitch the wound and remove a rusty can from one of his hind legs. When Buri was healed, he jumped the gate and disappeared in the cunucu. What we did not know at the time was that the vet had provided Buri with a chip. Years later a gorgeous, castrated white donkey was standing in front of our gate. Because we had no idea who it was, we looked for a chip. We could not ﬁnd one, so we baptised him Mystery Man and chipped him. Two years later we discovered that Mystery Man already had a chip from the vet as well. And yes: Buri and Mystery Man proved to be one and the same. We had not recognized him as he had a reddish fur at the time; now he was very light in color. Come and Visit Buri at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary!
This beautiful donkey has been provided with a chip, just like all the other donkeys. On the chip is information about the donkey and its medical history. The donkeys at the sanctuary have a lot of friends with whom they can play all day long. And they love living there: they are well cared for, they are fed and watered and when they are sick the vet is called. Yes, they are expensive customers for the sanctuary. Come and Visit Buri at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary!
The volunteers are trying to cover the various costs with all kinds of activities and the sale of great donkey memorabilia in the shop. Fortunately, there are also visitors who wish to adopt a donkey, who buy something at the donkey shop or who make a donation. Thus they help support us. Everyone is welcome to visit the sanctuary, located in Bringamosa, which has opening hours from 9am until 4pm, every day of the week. Entry is free of charge and one can enjoy a soft drink, a cup of coffee or a refreshing ice cream. Come and Visit Buri at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary!
