On December 6th the Animal Heaven Animal Rescue put out an SOS. In the town of Kilorglin, Ireland a donkey was spotted, stranded in a flooded river and needed rescue. Thankfully a hero with a boat was nearby, and help was on the way. Here is the mighty tale of a donkey and the man who rescued him.
The donkey was initially spotted by a woman named Suzanne, but she didn’t have a boat. Thankfully Mike Flemming of the Kilorglin Rowing Team was nearby. He rowed out on the water and put a life preserver around the donkey’s neck.
Once the life preserver was around the donkey’s neck Mike started to tow him to shore with his boat.
Once the donkey reached the shore vets checked him to make sure he was alright.
As you can see from the expression on his face, the donkey was fine. He couldn’t even hold back a smile.
The donkey even got a few kisses.
Once the rescue was complete the donkey was given a warm place to sleep and eat, complete with his own heat lamp. He also got one final, very special gift...
The Animal Heaven Animal Rescue gave the donkey the name Mike, after the man who rescued him. He’s even started to make some new friends.
Here’s some video of Mike enjoying his new life. Good luck Mike. We hope you enjoy a love and happy life.
