In 2001 Dr Johan and Annemarie van Zijl of McGregor responded to a request from the SPCA to provide shelter for two badly neglected donkeys. The two fellows arrived and were named Vaal and Japie - Vaaljapie being an Afrikaans term fore
Soon it became evident that there were many other donkeys similarly in desperate need of food, water, shelter and care. The dream of a donkey sanctuary was born. Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary was officially opened to the public in November 2007by its patron, singer-songwriter David Kramer. Today the sanctuary provides a permanent refuge for abused, neglected and elderly donkeys.
