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
veryday wine.

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.
