      Historically, Kakou, Martin and Anthonin (+) are donkeys over 20 years old from an association, evicted from their pasture following interpersonal conflicts.
      Despite numerous attempts, no solution has been found to keep them together in their region. Faced with this impasse and the urgency of their situation, three people decided to buy them in order to offer them a certain future. The Avon'ânes association was born.

      These three donkeys have been the object of a tremendous outpouring of solidarity, which has ensured their future and daily support. The association's aim is to raise public awareness of the animal's many abilities, and to challenge the clichés that have prevailed for many years.

      Since then, some forty donkeys have received help from the association's volunteers and found a new home.

      Today, Kakou, Martin, Lasco, Myrtille and Melba welcome young and old alike, to their great delight.

      One of the activities on offer is hiking with donkey(s), which is not the same as horse-riding, but involves carrying your belongings or children weighing less than 25 kg.

      Please note that carrying a child on the donkey's back is entirely your responsibility, but you will always be accompanied by a volunteer from the association. The child wears a bicycle helmet or canopy provided by the association.

      Donkey rides: various circuits are available, starting from the Parc de Bel Ébat. Available by the hour or for two hours. (Subject to availability, the health of our animals and mild weather conditions).

      Animal mediation for adults and children.

      Birthday parties, 1h30 activity for a group of up to 9 children.

      Events; Christmas market, Fête de la Nature, Kermesses, Village festivals..... The presence of our long ears is a plus for your events.
