Default Rabbit rescue!

My sister in law has just text me saying:

"If you saw a pet rabbit hanging around outside, that had obviously escaped, would you leave it to be run over or eaten/killed or take it home to keep it safe?"

I knew what was coming!!!

She found it, knocked on every door in her area and couldn't find anyone to claim it (for now), so she has taken it home, given it the reign of the outdoor cat house/pen and bought everything it needs.

Bless her. With 2 cats a chi (Toby) and now a wee rabbit, my brother is NOT very happy with her.

I think she is a star!!!

Bless her!! Hopefully someone is frantically looking for their bunny and they can have a joyful reunion. If not, she is a hero for stepping in and saving that bunny from certain death. If someone purposefully let out a pet bunny to survive on its own, then shame on them! Can she put an ad in the lost and found and put some flyers up? I hope it's just an escapee and the owner is looking for it.

Yeah basically she will keep hold of it until the owner is found - and she will try her hardest. But if not, it's not going to be taken to rescue - it will be a new addition to the family!

we recently found a terrified house rabbit (who had an eye infection) beside our bin in our drive way when we had all the snow poor thing could of froze too death
i knew who to phone but people know my family are suckers for any animal they seem too be leaving them outside my house now but at least we can help them
the other day the hubby found a baby bird in a car park in homebase hubby boxed it brought it home i phoned the wildlife people who told us to bring it in
well we did and couldn't believe it was called a tree hugger never even heard of this kind of bird before but glad we found it it had a sore leg and she said it wouldn't have survived if it had been left there!

sorry went of topic

but maybe someone new that your sil is a kind person who likes animals and would know what to do with the little rabbit

Aww thats so kind! She could put up some posters with a picture of the rabbit to help the owner(if there is one!) find him/her.

how sweet, I have done the same before I rescued 8 bunnies from a breeder who told us 'they were not up to breed standard' ((whats wrong with some people!!)) and was going to kill them, so I took them all in and re homed them!

I hope the bunny is very happy...and theres not a distraught owner somewhere looking for it..! xx

Bless her!

My bunny is a rescue. Some stupid person bought him as an Easter gift for their spoiled rotten child, they "loved" him for a week and then after the hubbub of Easter was over and he required a clean cage, healthy food and actual CARE, he was neglected!!!

We took him in, fed him proper healthy food, lots of Timothy hay and play with him everyday. He is a healthy and happy boy, with luscious, super soft fur. He is quite the little talk of the vet. They love to see him when he comes in for his nails.

They have even given my phone number out to a people in need of proper info on bunny care. Every April for the last 3 years now, I get at least 10 calls about bunnies needing homes or someone needing to know how to care for their bunny. I would take them all in if I could, but I just don't have the room. I WISH to God these people wouldn't get animals for "gifts". The animal always suffers. I am not looking forward to the calls I'll be receiving in just a couple weeks.

Anyway, YAY for her! I hope that she takes good care of the rabbit. He/she is lucky!

Just a helpful note, not that she would, but you would be SURPRISED at how many people do this.... rabbits don't eat just carrots! So many rabbits are fed just carrots and they are the most unhealthy, undernourished things! I've seen it too many times. It breaks my heart!!!

They need lots of healthy greens, some fruit, timothy hay and a good source of Timothy pellets. DO NOT FEED a rabbit corn, like humans, they don't digest it. I don't know why the hell the pet food company's make their rabbit food with corn in it... but its not good for the rabbit.

Ok, I am done.... sorry for ranting. I am just not looking forward to Easter, all those poor rabbits arriving for Easter morning and ending up in the fields or locked in a cage, forgotten a week later.
