Jeffrey Dean Morgan Welcomes Bonded Donkey & Emu To Their New Home At His Farm In New York

Yesterday, The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan officially embraced his real-life role as adopted human dad to a bonded donkey and emu, named Jack and Diane.

“A quick update to those interested… J&D made it HOME. They spent the day exploring new digs…and I just tucked them into bed with some berries for Diane and an apple for Jack,” was one of the many tweets that Morgan shared yesterday. “The family is in love with its newest members.”

Morgan also shared his appreciation for Carolina Waterfowl Rescue which took in the pair after they were found left abandoned on a farm in Kershaw, South Carolina, along with other animals.

As per The Charlotte Observer, the rescue group began looking for a forever home for the pair after the 5-foot-5 donkey “started crying” and the 6-foot-tall emu “got frantic” from being apart.

“If you are looking for a forever home for Jack and Diane? Happy to take them and keep them together at our farm,” Morgan responded to the nonprofit organization after learning about the story of the two homeless animals. “They would be a welcome addition to our menagerie of happy creatures.”

Morgan, who frequently posts heartwarming photos of animals on the farm he shares with his wife and children in Hudson Valley, N.Y., was on hand yesterday to help transfer the animals to their new home.

The compassionate animal advocate assured his followers that he will post pics of Jack and Diane after they have some time to settle in both from the drive, and what he believes has been a hard life so far.

“That all changes forever today,” stated Morgan. “They are home.”
