This is a MUST visit location if you are ever visiting Mannar. The donkeys in Mannar are one of the most notable features in this area. However, due to their abundance, they are often neglected and rejected by the locals. The donkey clinic is a Rehabilitation center for injured and problematic donkeys and also a petting zoo/education center for anyone who likes to come here. The staff here are very friendly and will take you through a tour around their premises and explain the background of the Donkey clinic. The donkeys that are maintained here are rehabilitating donkeys that are to be released back in to the wild and domesticated donkeys. These donkeys are very friendly and will come to you to be petted.

This was AMAZING!! They operate a clinic for injured donkeys in the region. They also have around 20 donkeys, most of which are rescues and highly tame. They let you groom and feed them too. Staff is extremely friendly. They are operated with funds from an Australian organization, so they are not money scammers like many such shelters. You can visit and enjoy the company of donkeys for free if you like, but donations are accepted as well. You definitely want to visit there if you are in the region. Keep up the good work guys!!
