BERTRAM -- The sores under Burnet's eyes were healing nicely one sunny November afternoon in Bertram. The white donkey stood close by Charles Munro, the man who rescued him one day before Burnet was scheduled to be euthanized.
Munro, a designer for an architectural firm, has just started a nonprofit organization called Texas Donkey Rescue on an acre in Bertram.
Burnet, found wandering on a county road by a Burnet County sheriff's deputy, is one of three donkeys in Munro's small pasture. Munro hopes to rescue several more by persuading people to foster the animals on their land. In the few months since his rescue efforts became public, people have contacted him about 100 donkeys needing help, Munro said.
