I know a woman on a different rabbit chat site that is somewhat involved in this (her rescue got called, but the buns are several states away) and I guess the estimate is more like 1,500 now. I may be wrong. This is too much to believe. I don't know how they'll rehome all those rabbits!

That is soo unbelievable. It's kind of sad that the lady's good deeds got turned into such a mess because of inconsiderate people. I'm glad their trying to help, I was afraid it was going to be a news article, not a rescue one.

I was at the Bunnie Rescue today, It was the hardest three hours Ive ever spent. My whole body is sore. But it was very rewarding.

So what did you do to help out? I've been following this Bunny rescue since the moment I heard about it. I want to help so bad but I live so far away. I wish I could adopt also, but the distance and my mum are in my way :sad:

I stuffed hay into plastic tubs that had holes cut in them for rabbit hiddyhouses, filled water tubs, carried large bags of feed, and also put feed in cages. The filling the water tubs was I think the most strenous work as the hose was soooooooo long and pulling it to the different cages was a real work out. The sad thing is as much as I love animals and want to be around them I am alergic to animal dander. And being around the hundreds of bunnies ended up giving me the worst migrane I have had ever monday night. :( So I cant go back. I will try and see if I can raise some awareness at work and get some other folks out there in my place and see if I can get some money raised or even get some items to donate to them.

Hi SuzyQ33,

I have 2 buns who I love dearly. I have always had a slight allergy to animal dander but it never stopped me from owning or growing up with cats, dogs, rabbits, etc...

At the end of last year I became pregnant and that all changed. I began wheezing and having problems with my throat closing. This made me very sad that I could no longer hold or take care of my buns. :(

I went to the pharmacy and bought rubber gloves and a medical mask. It is the type of mask that has a hepa filter in it. Now I can take care of the buns! If I need to hold them or I do a deep clean of their cage I wear some old clothes on top of my clothes and a shower cap. When I am done with the rabbits I strip off the exposed clothing, throw out the gloves and put the mask aside for next time. If needed I also take a shower to wash off the dander as well. It depends on how messy the clean up was.

Just thought I would give you the suggestion as I know you want to help.
