Donkey & Mule Protection Trust

The Donkey & Mule Protection Trust is a Non-Profit registered Charitable organisation that exists to Improve the Lives of Donkeys & Mules in New Zealand

Protection Trust website

Entire Jack Donkeys

The Society is concerned about the number of Jacks (Stallions) appearing on TradeMe advertised as being suitable for children or as pets. Entire Jacks (stallions) are not safe; they can suddenly become aggressive without warning. Only geldings and jennies should be considered.
