Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, the leading organization dedicated to the protection and welfare of donkeys, is proud to announce its partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in welcoming 3,000 sale-eligible wild donkeys into their care over the next five years. This monumental initiative aims to ensure the well-being and preservation of these majestic animals, as part of Peaceful Valley's ongoing commitment to donkey welfare.

In addition to the Bureau of Land Management collaboration, Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue is actively engaged in its wild donkey project within the Death Valley, Mojave National Preserve, Fort Irwin, and NASA Goldstone areas. By working closely with the National Park Service, US Army and NASA, Peaceful Valley strives to protect and rehabilitate the captured wild donkeys, allowing them to thrive in a safe and nurturing environment.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with the Bureau of Land Management in this crucial endeavor to provide a safe haven for 3,000 sale-eligible wild donkeys," said Rebecca Scott, Project Manager of the Peaceful Valley's Wild Burro Project. "At Peaceful Valley, we strongly believe in preserving the natural beauty of our wild donkeys and are committed to their well-being, both in their natural habitats and in our care."

Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue's dedication goes beyond the wild donkey project, as they actively combat donkey abuse, neglect, abandonment, and hoarding nationwide. Through educational programs, rescue operations, and rehabilitation efforts, the organization seeks to raise awareness about the critical issues impacting donkeys and provide them with the love and care they deserve.

The organization also invites supporters, animal enthusiasts, and concerned citizens to contribute to their mission. Donations and volunteer efforts play a vital role in ensuring the success of Peaceful Valley's ambitious projects and campaigns. We encourage the public to get involved in our work via one of our three rescue rehabilitation locations in Texas, Virginia and Arizona, our museum in Nevada, or join our network of over 40 nationwide satellite adoption centers.
