The Donkey Society of Victoria (DSV) was formed in 1972 by a small group of donkey enthusiasts, and over the last 30 years the society has grown to become one of the biggest and most recognised donkey societies in Australia. 

Members of the Society range from people who enjoy involvement in the many activities the society offers, to others who are mostly interested in the newsletters and information about donkeys. Some don’t even own a donkey! In fact, the only criteria for membership is to be someone who loves donkeys or mules.
