This month, Nerja Donkey Sanctuary is closing at the end of June, after ten years giving intensive care and protection to the most vulnerable animals. The School would like to thank the devoted workers of this perfect animal refuge for their huge dedication and effort throughout a whole decade. The current economic situation makes impossible to go on with the fantastic work that the voluntary staff of this local Sanctuary has been doing during the last years.

Every animal is going to find a new home as good as the one they had at Nerja´s Sanctuary.The donkeys that are currently living in the refuge are going to be moved to other similar sanctuaries located in Antequera, Marbella, Frigiliana and Coín. However, there are some horses, dogs and cats that don’t have someone to take care of them yet. If you are interested in adopting one of them you can contact Harriet at

Escuela de Idiomas Nerja has always collaborated with this organisation, specially through the sponsorship of a little donkey called Platero. The School’s donations have always been used for the protection and care of this donkey, of which the whole School staff has always been fond.

Everyone who is still interested in visiting the Sanctuary and feeding the animals there, can do it for free until the end of this month of June. This charity is located just one kilometre away from Nerja downtown and it is open every day from 10 am to 2 pm, and from 5 pm to 6 in the evenings.
