Amberwood Sanctuary: A Special Place for Donkeys

Baker County, Georgia

     In 1977, a little dark brown and very wild burro from the Mojave Desert inspired the Watson family to embark on a life-changing journey that continues today. After driving to Valley Wells, California, to adopt our burro through the Bureau of Land Management's Wild Horse and Burro Program, we brought her home to Georgia. We named her Amber and loved her completely. After some time and much caution, she loved us back.

     After only a few months of being with Amber and caring for her, we knew we could do nothing less than provide sanctuary for other wild burros who have been systematically captured and removed from the western public lands that have always been their home. In April 1982, we took our first small steps to create Amberwood Sanctuary. With profits from our mail order business and donations from many caring people, in 1989, we nailed a sign on a fence in Baker County, Georgia, which simply said, "Amberwood Sanctuary."

     Amberwood Sanctuary intends to continue every possible effort to allow the American mustangs and wild burros their freedom on our public lands.

     Each time another wild burro or homeless donkey arrives at Amberwood Sanctuary, a silent promise is given that she/he will not be uprooted again or separated from family members and social groups.
