A man whose hunting dog had killed a neighbor’s rabbit called to ask for help for two more female rabbits living in the same backyard hutch.  The rabbits’ health was suffering and he was concerned if they were sufficiently protected or secured in their enclosure. He didn't want his dog to hurt these pet rabbits.

 He asked his neighbor if he wanted to give the two remaining rabbits to my sister, Bonnie. His neighbor agreed.

The day Bonnie and I arrived; there were two young girls worried about where their pet bunnies were going.  They didn't understand why their bunnies were "sick." The parents never appeared to reassure or comfort their daughters.  Neither the girls nor the rabbits deserved this sad scene.

We reassured them we would help the rabbits back to good health.  Both rabbits were dehydrated and the Rex was severely underweight.  Her patchy hair had been barbered by her New Zealand companion who was a very stressed rabbit.  They also flinched at human contact. 

After both were spayed, Rosie and Tansy settled in to be socialized and learned to trust humans.  They quickly began enjoying being petted and came to their new names.

Several weeks later an elementary school teacher and his wife who love animals adopted the bonded pair of rabbits. The girls who gave up their rabbits each received a gift – a pretty glossy photo as a pictured above of their rehabilitated rabbits.
