STBDR is a Minnesota based rescue focusing on rescuing and rehabilitating donkeys (and occasionally mules) in need.

Donkeys have long been called stubborn and thought of as nothing more than beasts of burden. The reality is, they are so much more and are becoming increasingly popular. With increased popularity comes increased population. Sadly, what follows an increase in the number of unwanted animals. Whether the reason is owners not understanding donkey behaviors, an inability to care for their animals, unexpected life events or one of any number of other reasons, many donkey owners are giving up their animals. These donkeys and mules need a place to land safely or they risk being sold for slaughter.

STBDR is here to try and help as many as we are able, whether it be our help, donors help, the public's help, or other rescues' help, these wonderful animals deserve happy endings.
