Butte County, California –  As Dane’s owner was speeding away from his home with his two dogs in the cab of his truck, he watched with horror as the wildfire engulfed his house and property in his rear view mirrors.  For unknown reasons, he failed to contact animal rescuers about his donkey before the fire ravaged his home, and no doubt assumed the worst.  When North Valley Animal Disaster Group received a call from Cal Fire firefighters about a burned donkey that had survived the Wall Fire, they sprung into action to save Dane’s life.

When rescuers arrived, they found Dane suffering and in agony.  It took nearly 2 hours to load Dane into a trailer for the 45 minute ride to Look Ahead Veterinarian Services.  Dane suffered severe burns and smoke inhalation during the inferno.

Dane is expected to survive his burns, but it will take months of care to recover from the burns and other injuries.

The Wall Fire burned over 6,000 acres and destroyed 41 homes.
