Donley is a partner in the Sugarcreek Veterinary Clinic, which specializes in large animals from cows and horses to deer and exotic pets. While he no longer works as a professional taxidermist, he mounts animals he and his two children hunted. Hunting trips have taken Donley from Alaska to the African plains.
