The Guelph Arts Council has online resources for all sorts of themed tours around the city.

The Donkey Sanctuary of Guelph

This virtual tour is not of the beautiful sanctuary grounds; that includes walkable trails throughout the property, a quaint little waterfront with a grassy spot to picnic at, it’s of the collection of the donkeys calling the sanctuary home. This little exploration and learning of donkeys will be sure to make you smile.  Stay tuned for the when the sanctuary reopens.
