Therapeutic Miniature Donkey Program (Asinotherapy)

Esther and Esau “Got Hitched”

Thank you for making our Donkey Wedding a success!

Over 230 guests joined us to celebrate the wedding of Latham therapy donkeys, Esther and Esau, on Saturday, May 11th, at Taylor-Bray Farm in Yarmouth Port. This SOLD-OUT event was the first of its kind and we couldn’t have asked a more beautiful day to celebrate their nuptials!

Over $13,000 was raised to support our Asinotherapy Program.  Funds raised will help subsidize the cost of caring for our six beautiful therapeutic donkeys, and it will have a lasting impact on the Latham individuals for whom this program means so much. 

We would like to thank all our guests for attending and sharing their enthusiasm with us.  We are grateful to all our volunteers, committee members, staff, sponsors and in-kind donors for generous contributions of their creativity, services, products and time.  We are truly blessed to live in a community with businesses and individuals so dedicated to ensuring this event was not only a success, but a meaningful, educational, and fun experience we’re sure no one will forget anytime soon.
