Who Are We?

Andrea and Jeff Durham live on a 54 acre farm in northern Greenville County, South Carolina, in the very house Jeff grew up in. During Jeff’s childhood, the farm was a working cattle farm. As time went on, the cattle were sold, the barn caved in, and the property went back to Mother Nature.

What Do We Do?

Those of us behind Long Ear Rescue want a better future for our long eared friends. Long Ear Rescue’s goal is to ensure every donkey or mule we come into contact with is treated with love and respect. We want to show our community, and the world, how amazing these sweet, stoic animals are.


Thank you so much for your interest in adopting from Long Ear Rescue, Inc.! Here are the steps to our adoption process:
1) Please visit our website to view our adoptable animals.
