Update on the Syracuse 15August 1, 2012- In July, OHRR was contacted about fifteen bunnies that were abandoned in a rental property in Syracuse, OH. A small group of representatives were able to visit the property where the bunnies were living, only to find them in horrible conditions. The bunnies were all outside living in wire cages; we were lucky that only one of them had hock sores on her feet. We were able to bring all of them back, but one of the most elderly bunnies was terribly ill and his teeth were in poor condition; eventually it became clear that he was not going to make it. The other rabbits were quickly placed into their foster homes or were taken to other rescues that had space for them including F-Five rescue and Capital Area Humane Society. They were all spayed/neutered at Norton Road Veterinary Hospital and given fresh foods, something they must not have experienced before judging by how happy they were to munch on the lettuce! For the first time, they were given the opportunity to hop around inside the home of a loving family. Unfortunately, since the rescue two other bunnies passed. Lionel, who was a big, white bunny, passed shortly after his rescue. Spiderman, another big white bunny, passed away one morning in August. However, this story has a happy ending. Spottes, a brown and white spotted bunny, was taken to the vet to be neutered when a veterinarian fell in love with him. He was quickly adopted into a loving home. Shortly after, a Syracuse 15 foster mommy became a foster-failure and adopted her bunny. If you're interested in giving one of these bunnies a permanent home, check out our Petfinder page for more information! Thank you to Oxbow Animal Health and PETCO for donating much needed supplies to these bunnies!
