The Vet Care Fund was a great success, raising over $11,000 in contributions. With the one-to-one match, provided by three generous donors (thanks to Rosie Wendt, Nancy Betz and Pat Barron), that means we raised over $22,000 to help with spay/neuters, and wellness/emergency care for the OHRR bunnies. Because veterinary costs are our largest single expense, we will use every dollar of this fund. Many thanks to all of you who contributed!!!!
This new, re-imagined run/walk will be virtual this year – run, walk, hop 5K (or any distance that works for you) – and help support the OHRR bunnies. Next year, we will have an in-person run here in Columbus in addition to the virtual one. But for this year, you can support the bunnies in your own place and time. (Around the Virtual race date of April 2nd). You are going to love the new “medal” you receive for participating, and the optional, so cute, t-shirt! Watch for info on how to sign up.

Many OHRR volunteers and supporters extend their impact for OHRR by giving thru their workplace. We have supporters who give through major Columbus employers such as Chase, Battelle, IBM, Verizon, Nordstrom, Nationwide, and via United Way. Sometimes, that gift (or one you make directly to OHRR) can be matched by your employer, multiplying the impact for the bunnies!
In another example of a way to give, one of OHRR’s long-time volunteers, Chris Baker, arranged for OHRR to be the charity of the month as a part of her employer’s, (Nexeo Solutions) Great Place To Work group, Chris’ colleagues combined to donate $750 to OHRR.
Also, Kim Eplin, a Lead Volunteer at the Adoption Center, and her husband Jon, who own their own company (https://www.drjonshandcraftedsoapco.com) have not only sponsored OHRR’s Putting for the Bunnies event, but have also designated a portion of their profits from January 2017 to OHRR.
We thank everyone who has given through their workplace and encourage you to look into the possibility!
