Georgia House Rabbit Society (GHRS) was alerted to a hoarding situation in Dekalb County in May 2021. At the property, they found over 150 rabbits crammed into 8 hutches, living outside in filthy conditions. All of the rabbits were confiscated, triaged, and given immediate medical attention. Unfortunately, a few did not make it. But the remainder are safe and GHRS took in 125 bunnies.
All of the confiscated rabbits needed vet care, including spaying/neutering and medical attention, including treating wounds from fighting, abscesses, mites, coccidia, syphilis, fleas, ticks, and sore hocks. Considering just a spay/neuter can cost $150-$180 per rabbit (not including other treatments that have been necessary), vet bills quickly mount up. The shelter could use our help!
December 2021 Edit: This summer, one of the rabbits from the hoarding case suddenly died and came back positive for RHDV (a highly contagious and deadly virus in rabbits). The entire shelter had to be deep cleaned and closed for over 6 weeks for quarantine. While it increases the cost of sheltering each rabbit, every new rabbit that GHRS takes into the shelter must be vaccinated for RHDV as a precaution.
November 2022 Edit: Can't believe it's been over a year since starting this fund! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! Although the shelter has adopted out many of the bunnies from this emergency intake, there are nine rabbits from this hoarding case still waiting to be adopted and have been at the shelter since May 2021.
Please consider donating to support these and the hundreds of rabbits that GHRS helps each year. Thank you!
