The following is from International Fund for Animal Welfare:
All Ricky could think about was his donkey.
His house and all his belongings had just been destroyed by California’s Wall Fire, but his concern was for Dane, the donkey that a dying friend gave him seven years ago.
You know the special connection we have with our animal companions. Whether a dog or a cat, a horse or a donkey, they are our family.
And so Ricky was overjoyed when he learned that firemen and our partner, NVADG, had rescued Dane. The poor donkey has suffered severe burns and smoke inhalation and will need ongoing care for several months.

Our rescue team is still on the ground in Butte County helping the animal victims of the Wall Fire that has scorched more than 6,000 acres and destroyed dozens of homes.
We’ve helped rescue, shelter and care for more than 150 animals … from dogs and cats suffering from smoke inhalation, to injured goats, horses – and yes, even donkeys.
You can help! The animal victims still need you, and your gift today can help us continue to provide them with everything they need until they can reunite with their families and return home.
You’ll help the animal victims of this devastating fire and so many other animals that are suffering and need care.
I’m thrilled that we could help Ricky find Dane.
So many times, when disasters strike and people lose so much, the reunion with their animal companions is the first glimmer of hope they feel.
It heals their broken hearts and helps set them on the road to recovery.
You can help heal more hearts with your donation today.
Thank you for caring,
IFAW Manager, Animal Rescue-Disasters
P.S. We’re helping the animal victims of California’s devastating Wall Fire. But we can’t help animals without you.
