Last Sunday, Suzanne Gibbons in Kilorglin, Ireland, came across a donkey that was helplessly trapped in a flooded river. The woman posted a request for assistance on the Facebook page of Animal Heaven Animal Rescue (AHAR).
Luckily, Killorglin Rowing Club member Mike Fleming replied and arrived with his boat. Gibblings, who cannot swim, wrote: “He was my final chance and phone call to beg for a boat.” “I could tell right immediately that he had the courage to do it. Just come on, girl, and let’s try it. Don’t be negative.
With the aid of a rope and a lifesaver, the donkey was successfully rescued from the sea. He shocked everyone with a gorgeous smile after being saved! The donkey was only able to escape from his stable because the wind blew open the stable gate, despite having a caring owner and being well-cared for.

In Kilorglin, Ireland, a donkey was discovered trapped in a river that had overflowed.
Suzanne, the woman who witnessed it, was unfortunate since she didn’t have a boat or know how to swim.
Fortunately, Killorglin Rowing Club member Mike Fleming arrived with his boat.
Using a rope and a life preserver, the poor animal was hauled out of the water.
He immediately started grinning!
“We’ve named him Mike”
He is now warm and comfy, eating a hot mash after being cleaned off with towels.
After seeing him, our veterinarian prescribed medications to treat his pneumonia.
He has a minor amount of fluid in one lung, but our veterinarian predicted a full recovery.
The donkey was only able to escape from his stable because the wind blew open the gate; he is loved by his owner and is well-cared for.
