​​My Blog ...

In case anyone wants to keep up with what I do day by day when I am here in Amargosa Valley, please feel free to follow me on this Wordpress blog at https://karensnakeeyesgilligan.wordpress.com

I take care of the computer work, emails, website etc for the organization. I'm not at the ranch for "hands-on", except on my occassional visits there, but this is my way to help out in another way... I don't live an "exciting" life but follow along and you'll see how I spend my days.

Wild Burro Rescue is now on Instagram thanks to our good friend, Kay!  Please follow along at: https://www.instagram.com/wildburrorescue/

An update from the VP:

Our Bunks and Burros volunteer program is a GREAT success! We are so grateful for the wonderful people who have been coming to the sanctuary to spend time with the burros and help with lots of projects we have as "on-going". It's all coming together nicely! Be sure to visit our Straynger Ranger page to sign up for our  Bunks and Burros!

Message from the VP

You can help our burros with your donation!

Karen Gilligan, VP WBR

I will refresh this page with news in Olancha whenever I make my next trip to Olancha.

I personally want to thank each and every one of our supporters for your help. Without you, Wild Burro Rescue would not exist. The burros send lots of happy braying your way!


​Karen Gilligan, VP WBR

Karen Gilligan here. I am the VP of Wild Burro Rescue and also the webmaster for the organization. I am the one who takes care of checking and answering any emails that come over for WBR and for Diana because the internet connection  in Olancha at her house is very "iffy" to say the least. I also had set up and now update the  GoFundMe campaigns for the burros which you can find on the  You can help  page on this site. I also take care of the bookkeeping and writing/mailing donor receipts to all who donate. 
On THIS page (VP), I will update with news of the sanctuary whenever I make a visit there, which is usually once a month. I  live in Amargosa Valley, NV. which is 3 hours from Olancha, so trips are not all that frequent!
