The nation's leading donkey rescue organization, Peaceful Valley, is inviting the public to come out Saturday for the first annual "Donk-Tober-Fest". Tours will kick-off at 10 a.m. Saturday and there will be plenty of opportunities for the whole family to enjoy a day with hundreds of animals.

For over 10 years Peaceful Valley has rescued thousands of donkey's, and this 172 acres of land is home to over 900 donkey's.

Mark Meyers, Executive Director of Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, says once the donkey's come they stay safe for life.

"Nobody was helping donkey's and there's this huge need out there. The federal government has thousands of wild burros that they have no place to put."

Over the last few years, the team at Peaceful Valley brought in over 2,000 abandoned donkey's just in the state of Texas.

"I am not going to out run a donkey, so I have four dogs and we spend about 10,000 miles a month in the truck all over the country. They've caught donkeys in 27 states, and I couldn't do it without them."

Volunteers are always welcome to come down to donate their time even if it's just to pet the donkey's.
