America’s biggest donkey rescue group says that in the last year it has taken in nearly 800 animals abandoned in Texas, where ranchers mainly use the animals to guard their flocks.

Mark Meyers, executive director of Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, said that flood of donkeys continues although the drought began in late 2010. “Last week I spent two days on the road and got 20 donkeys each day,” Meyers added.
