Here is a list of what we need to help make life for the burros awesome:

BALES OF HAY / ALFALFA - as many as you'd like to buy! They have big trucks to haul lots of bales:)  If you can buy even just one bale of hay a week at the going price that would add up quickly and if enough good folks could get together to order that way we would always have a supply for the burros:)

Perhaps suggest it to co-workers or other family members! 

VETERICYN-  for wound care. From item #E001500 The vetericyn made for eye care (the gel form) is also needed. Item #E001502

EQUINE SENIOR - We  can never have too much!! This can be ordered through our supplier. Consider buying a bag to add to the truck. (see phone number at right)

EQUI-AID PSYLLIUM PELLETS-  (10,20 or 50 lbs) can be ordered through item # SLT180127

FLAT ROLLED OATS-  we can never have enough!

NU-STOCK WOUND CREAM order from item  E024357​


​​FARNHAM BRONCO GOLD EQUINE FLY SPRAY (1 gal) This can be ordered through -  Item # E002829

DOG FOOD (DRY) AND CAT FOOD- These can be ordered through our supplier who will put onto the hay truck when it delivers to the sanctuary.

INFLATABLE SOLAR LANTERNS - for use at the cabins and our bunks and burros events

What we have need of is water troughs for the burros. The ones we currently have are getting quite old now, cracking, leaking... We need 75 gallon to 150 gallon troughs.(We have enough of the 300 gallon ones now!) We are trying to replace our cracked plastic ones with
metal troughs now.
As for the older troughs that we can replace, they are recycled and used as a raised garden for vegetables and flowers.

These,too, can be ordered directly from Gateway (see above contact info) They run approximately $100 a piece for the 12' panels/4 rail/galvanized
We can use any amount you'd like to purchase. They will deliver them here when we get our hay shipment from them!


We desperately need shelters for our aging burros! You can call Billet Barns, who put up our existing shelters, for pricing on the 12x12 size shelters.

Their phone number is: (661) 945-1249 


We are in need of a 4-horse bumper-pulled horse trailer

We want to thank all who have helped us with the fly products!! Thanks to the wonderful response to our plea for help over the summer months, we now have quite a bit of the SWAT fly ointment and fly repellents, etc. that will be a good start for next spring/summer!

If you'd like to help out by ordering directly through the store, here is the information:

The main ranch house...desperately needs a new roof!

website maintained and updated

by Karen Gilligan, VP WBR

We currently are using a smaller tractor, but having a larger sized front end loader is necessary to keep the bigger corrals cleaned and rock free.

We also accept payments at Venmo: @wildburrorescue

Pay Pal to:

This is(was) our main ranch truck...that is no longer working. Having a TRUCK is a MUST at our sanctuary. Would anyone want to donate a 4x4 truck to the burro sanctuary?! What a great tax write off that would be!

A new roof would be really nice! Any construction workers want to come help with this project?

Here are some of the larger items we could use

Aside from Amazon Smile, we also recommend to order supplies. Use PROMO CODE iglphrs to receive a 30% discount on your order!!!

We of course always need the Equine Senior, rolled oats and yes, even dog biscuit treats. All of these can be bought through our Gateway supplier who in turn will add it to the truck when they bring our hay.

Do you or someone you know have a truck they could donate to help Diana be able to haul hay around to the various corrals? Don't forget it is tax deductible!

Water troughs needed! The 75-150 gallons

A Bobcat like this would be so awesome to have for so many projects around the sanctuary
