On January 16th, 2015, our four babies from the Sacramento “Meat” Rabbit Rescue arrived. We are overjoyed… and heartbroken when we look at their injured and missing toes, knowing the suffering they have been through in their short time on Earth. They are just babies! (Many thanks to Lisa Rockwell and her mum from being their taxi service!) Check out our photo gallery!
On Christmas Eve, December 24, 2014, nineteen baby “meat ” rabbits were saved from neglect and death at the hands of a meat rabbit breeder in Sacramento. These poor, terrified, injured babies, taken away from their mama too soon, were being sold as food (for snakes or humans, breeder didn’t care). Due to the inhumane, filthy, dangerous conditions that these rabbits were kept in, all of them were injured and required medical care. A dog had been terrorizing them from beneath their wire cage and all were missing toes or parts of toes.
Please donate to help with their ongoing medical care!
The Craigslist ad (seen in part here, but unfortunately, flagged and deleted) read that they were good for snake food or eating, but not show-worthy because their feet had been chewed on by a dog. Their water bottles were nothing but green algae. The bunnies had no hay, no solid flooring, and no protection from the elements other than a rag stretched across the top of their filthy cage. Utterly heartbreaking.
Our love and thanks to their rescuer, Janet Foster and Second Chance Bunnies Rabbit Rescue, for rescuing and caring for these poor babies! Without her they would have surely suffered more. . .and died. ♥
♥ We at Zooh Corner Rabbit Rescue are looking forward to loving our boys, and to giving them the freedom to be bunnies, and the kindness and the care they so desperately need and deserve. ♥
Please consider donating to help us care for them. On top of whatever medical needs they will have (due to their extensive injuries), each bun needs to be neutered ASAP so that they will not get hormonal and need to be separated. Please help with neuters ASAP. These babies have been through enough and they need each other. Bunnies bond closely and they do not need to deal with being separated.
