‘Donkey’ flying high to his new home in Perth


SAFE rescue dog ‘Donkey’ will be flying his own plane from Karratha to Perth to meet his new family; the Karratha News can report.

‘Donkey’ who is a mixed breed dog and thought to be the result of a Staffie, Kelpie, Jack Russell and Alpaca, has caught the eye of Perth resident Samantha Rose.

When we asked Samantha what it was about Donkey that she loved so much, she replied simply “I liked him the moment I first saw his photo and feel he will be great company for my Kelpie – Rocky, plus I have never seen a dog crossed with an alpaca before”

Donkey is expected to make the flight on Saturday 12th January, flying his own plane called ‘Air Donkey’ – he is expected to be wearing those aviator special sunnies that pilots wear and will fly across the desert at great speed, where at Perth airport, will be met by his new family.

“Strewth I am bloody excited, I have heard that those dogs on the beach are pretty hot and I won’t be short of a girlfriend or two” Donkey said last night to our reporter.  It must be emphasized that Donkey does not have testicles so any relationship that he will have will be purely platonic.

Donkey will be sharing his new life with a kelpie called Rocky and a large 8kg cat called Gordon who flew from the UK to Australia and thinks nothing of dominating any dog that enters his house and if necessary, swiping it on the head to put them in their place.

Donkey Donations

SAFE Karratha have done a fabulous with the homing process for Donkey, their efficiency in processing the adoption and sending out the paperwork has been excellent, not to mention the support that they offer with the rehoming process.

Donkey’s stories are going to continue as Donkey becomes a part of our household, thus making up the ‘3rd family member’ with Rocky and Gordon.

If you enjoy these stories and would like to donate to SAFE Karratha, their bank details are as follows:

SAFE Karratha/HQ Bank:
Account Name:
BSB Number:
Account Number: 
Commonwealth Bank 
Saving Animals From Euthanasia Inc
101 488 05

Remember every little donation helps and if I believe that my animal stories can raise money for SAFE Karratha, then I will make them a regular feature.  Interest is already being generated in other countries – Cyprus, USA, UK so I shall make it my mission to keep writing the stories to help their cause.

All I ask, is that if you do donate, if you could reference it as ‘Donkey Dundee’ so that SAFE know who it is in relation to.
