Hops & Dill
ABANDONED, BUT NOT LOST!
suffered terribly. He made his
trips to the vet in 4 weeks. His
body temperatures were so high they could have killed him.
He tolerated a seizure, paralysis, dreadful parasites with minor
surgery, pneumonia, abscesses and enough fleas/ticks on him to make him anemic.
This very affectionate pet rabbit endured all this because someone
decided to dump him outside like trash. It
would have been a death sentence had no one found him.
Yet Hops has proved his incredible spirit and will to live.
The outcome for Hops was a miracle. Three vets told
me that being abandoned outdoors so medically compromised Hops that he
would never fully recover. Hops became a
romping, stomping 10 lb. rabbit.

Dill was very fortunate because she was found probably within a couple of days
of being abandoned. When I
approached this dwarf rabbit on very hot, humid morning in June she was lying
under a tree trying to cool off. The
leaves she nibbled were strange to her and she spit some out.
She had no idea what foliage was good to eat let alone if it were
poisonous. She listened to me talk
to her while I distracted her with one hand and grabbed her with the other.
Neither my sister (who adopted her) nor myself can understand why this
little sweetheart was abandoned outside. She
is easy to care for and affectionate. A
trip to a no kill shelter or a call to a House Rabbit Society Chapter would have
been more humane than dumping a bunny weighing less than 3 pounds outdoors to
fend for herself.

bonded to Carmel, a beautiful agouti lop bunny who is full of energy.
Carmel had been a "classroom bunny" and then his next owner was
getting married and gave him to Hopperhome. Carmel beat his
previous owner to the alter. He found love with Dill right
away! Carmel and Dill enjoy many hours grooming each other and
snuggling. They were adopted out as a bonded pair and this
bunny couple has a
new loving home together!
