Jeffrey Dean Morgan Adopts Viral Donkey And Emu Couple

There’s a new little ditty about Jack and Diane. Recently, an abandoned donkey and emu couple named after the infamous John Mellencamp song were rescued by the non-profit Carolina Waterfowl Rescue Group in North Carolina. The group posted a video of their new arrivals on social media, which showed Jack and Diane comforting each other.

“They like to cuddle and even sleep together,” Waterfowl founder Jennifer Gordon told The Charlotte Observer. “We can’t separate them. Where one goes, the other follows.” Waterfowl staff even said when they tried to separate the pair for transportation purposes they both became distressed. Unsurprisingly, the story became viral and the internet quickly fell in love with the unlikely couple. Among their new fans was Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who replied to one of their tweets:

Shortly after, Waterfowl became inundated with over 2,000 inquiries from around the world. “We had a lot of people trying to capitalize on the publicity of the story, and we were really concerned that they would end up in the wrong hands,” Gordon told the Observer. But ultimately, they decided to hand Jack and Diane over to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who owns a farm in New York with his wife Hillary Burton.

“I strongly felt that by allowing Jeffrey Dean Morgan to adopt them that it would take the publicity fear off the table,” Gordon said. “He definitely doesn’t need to adopt an animal to get publicity, and so I knew that would not be his motive in giving them a home.” As you can see below, JDM showed up at the rescue group and picked them up himself. And as you can see from Morgan’s tweets below, Jack and Diane made it safely to his farm, where they can live out the rest of their days as a couple.
