These are the faces of rabbits that need help. Rabbit Rescue is currently undergoing their biggest rescue in history. 400 lops and dwarfs were seized by the Sudbury OSPCA from a horrible situation. 200 had to be euthanized. 200 are left.
This is why Mom has been unable to update my blog properly - she's been really busy. Mom and Dad both volunteer for Rabbit Rescue and when the call came on for help, Rabbit Rescue sprung into action. Our Executive Director and Adoption Co-ordinators have been working non-stop for almost two weeks organizing this mission.
Through massive Facebooking, Tweeting and press, we are doing all we can to get the word out about this dire situation, and Mom thought perhaps she could hijack my blog to spread the news even further. How could I say no? It's so important that people know about this rescue effort because the more foster homes we can get, the more of these rabbits we can save. I know many of you who read this will want to know how you can help. Well, here's how....
Rabbit Rescue needs foster homes. The more space we have, the more rabbits we can save. If you live in the Greater Toronto Area and can foster for us, please do! You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps you are ready to adopt? Well, don't hesitate to send an email to the same address! We also desperately need supplies - dog crates, xpens, creative cubes, litterbins, woodstove pellets - again if you are in the GTA and are able to donate any of these things, send an email!
I know a lot of my peeps don't live nearby, but there is a way you can all still help. Rabbit Rescue is going to be treating all of these bunnies for whatever issues they may have and they will also all be spayed and neutered. We all know that stuff doesn't come cheap and we estimate that our bills are going to be anywhere from $25,000 to $30,000. As a rescue we are always prepared but in this case, there is no way we can afford to do all of this, so we DESPERATELY need your donations. Mom never likes asking people for money, but I told her, this is a special case and the bunnies really need it! If anybun out there is in a position to make a donation, even if it is only $5, it will be greatly appreciated! To make a secure online donation, click here.
Are you a shelter or rescue within driving distance of Toronto that is able to take in some bunnies? Are you able to share this story with as many animal lovers as you can? Are you ready to be a part of Rabbit Rescue history? We really need you!
Mom and Rabbit Rescue would also like to take this opportunity to thank so many of our friends who have already done so much. We have managed to recruit an incredible number of new foster homes and we want to thank them, along with our own network of foster parents, for opening their hearts and homes to these bunnies. We also want to thank Martin Mills who is donating a free bag of food to every single bunny! We want to thank Greenwood Park and Campus Estates Animal Hospitals for offering even more discounts on spays, neuters and treatments. Thank you also to everyone who has donated money, supplies and time to make this rescue a reality. And most of all, thank you to the Sudbury OSPCA for saving these innocent souls from such deplorable conditions.
Because of our efforts, we have been able to either take in or place with other shelters and rescues, a total of 140 rabbits. There are still 60 left. Sixty souls that still need our help - YOUR help. We will not stop until all of them are safe. Please help make this a reality. Do it for them.....
Do it for me,
