Grateful Donkey Is All Smiles After Being Saved From A Flood By Rescuers

Suzanne Gibbons spotted a donkey struggling in a flooded river and got some help from Animal Heaven Animal Rescue. Floods are worse for farm animals because they’re so big, it can be difficult to find a space to shelter them after the flood is over. Most of the time, they’re left to fend for themselves, and many don’t make it.

Animal rescuers saw a donkey drowning in a flooded area, and set out to make one of the most daring rescues ever.

Because the water was rising so quickly, the rescuers had to act quickly or the donkey would certainly perish.  The rescuers knew that they needed help, so they posted on Facebook and tried to recruit anyone that was close by.

Luckily, help arrived right away and the group quickly took a flotation device attached to rope and placed it around the donkey’s neck. This allowed the rescuers to gently drag the donkey over to safe land. After what seemed like hours, the rescuers had accomplished their mission and the donkey was safe.
