Rabbit emergency!

No name bunny begging for food after his bath. :)

I mainly focus on rescuing rats but these rabbits were in a seriously dangerous situation.Please share this post so others can see it. To view my website click here

 Today, August 27, I encountered a serious problem. As I was visiting family outside of the city I decided to go along to a vet trip for their dog. I wanted to see how their vet was and the differences between the vets I have been to. While sitting in the waiting room a very angry woman walked into the vet clinic. She had a small crate, I was thinking she had a small cat or kitten in the crate. She then started yelling and swearing at the receptionist saying she had issues with her three rabbits.

  She said when she adopted them she thought they were all males but they were not. She was furious and saying she did not want a litter of rabbits and she could not deal with the rabbits any longer. She said she couldn’t find them a home. Neutering and spaying rabbits is VERY expensive, this woman obviously did not want to pay for the animals she carelessly bought. She continued to say one was sick, and was attacked by one of the other rabbits. All of this went on for about 15 minutes. The receptionist offered the best advice she could but the woman refused to listen to anything. 

  The woman then said something very disturbing which is the reason why these rabbits are now with me. She told the receptionist if they won’t take them and rehome them ( most vet clinics will not do this) she wants them euthanized. The receptionist then explained that they will not do that and they unfortunately cannot rehome her animals and she will have to take them to some sort of shelter. The woman grabbed the carrier viciously and told the receptionist she didn’t need her help and she will just let them go in the woods. She quickly walked out the door and I followed her and asked if I could take them. She agreed and I now have three beautiful rabbits. 

  I rushed home as soon as I got them and found out they are infact all male. If you research male rabbits you will find tons of information about raging hormones. These boys need to be neutered. One of the boys has been bitten a few times and seems to have a respiratory illness. As soon as I let them out of the tiny crate they did start fighting. Rabbit fights can be very brutal and even deadly. They were also very dirty and in very poor condition, they were not fed properly at all. As I already have a rabbit of my own I had to modify his large C&C cage to fit 3 rabbits, and my rabbit is living in a regular rabbit cage at the moment. This is not ideal but it will do for now.

  The problem is I cannot afford the proper vet care they need. I only took them in because their lives were at risk and at least they will be safe with me until I can come up with the money. On top of their vet bills they also need basic accessories like proper cages, food, toys and accessories. Rabbit care is very expensive and I already have quite a few rats that are getting medical attention that is also expensive. Just the care for these rabbits alone will cost me over $1000.00. 

  I would like to take them to the vet I take my rabbit ( and past rescue rabbit) to. I want to make sure they will get great care. The exam for one rabbit will be $85.00 + tax, and the neuter will be $298.00 + tax. This is not including any pain medication, or the medical care for the sick rabbit. I may even find out the other two have other problems as well. Over all without tax or medication their neuter will be $1,149.00 for all three of them. The donation goal is $1600.00 because I believe that should cover their neuters with the tax and medication added.

  These rabbits were terrified and are already warming up to me, but they are not very friendly. I can see why she couldn’t find a home for them, but I am willing to do everything I can to make them loving comfortable pets. If I can raise enough money to get them the medical care they need I will keep all three of them as my own, unless I find a loving forever home once they are healthy and friendly. Rabbits are very sensitive animals, they have been through enough fear and stress, I do not want to have to rehome them again anytime soon.

If you can donate anything please do. You can send your donation to haiirokokoro@hotmail.com via paypal. Every little bit helps, thank you for reading their story. :)

These awesome illuminated inflatable white rabbits are the work of Australian artist Amanda Parer for an installation entitled Intrude. In May 2014 the giant glowing bunnies were installed at the Vivid Festival of Light Sydney and next month they’ll be part of the Junction Arts Festival in Launceston, Tasmania.

Parer’s enormous and radiant rabbits, which stand 7 meters (~23 feet) tall, were created as a twofold response to the animals’ common occurrence in Australian fairytales as well as their invasive presence throughout Australia:

"These animals first travelled to Australia on the ships of the First Fleet and were brought ashore in cages in January 1788. These adaptable creatures quickly made themselves at home and eventually spread to almost every corner of the land. An Australian contradiction, Intrude represents the fairy-tale animals of our childhood – a furry innocence, frolicking through idyllic fields, while revealing their more serious and large-scale effect on the environment.”

I think It Must Be Nice To Be a Bird, run by Madeleine Belanger is currently my favourite jewellery designer (Ladybird Likes being a close second!).

My boyfriend got me a lovely rabbit pendant last Christmas and I’m in awe of it.  My life is all about crafts, and I go to a lot of craft shops, galleries and shows and there’s always a lot of jewellery and sometimes things can seem a bit samey, still wonderful, but it’s rare I get really truly excited.  (I don’t mean to sound like a dick.  I do get excited, I do think a lot of the work I see is really well crafted, but I don’t think “I NEED TO BLOG ABOUT THIS MAKER!” often) But Madeleine’s work is really breathtaking.

I love her style, tiny works of art.  And the drawings in each one are hand painted water colours, seriously.  Amazing.  So much amazing craftsmanship.  Her work is inspired by the Canadian landscape around her and it’s wildlife.

My partner has said he knows what to get me for the next few Christmasses, and I may well be asking for a commission featuring my rabbit in =]
