28 RABBIT SAVED FROM GOING TO SLAUGHTER
All 28 Beautiful rabbits are safe & being transported to rescues, where they finally get to begin a hoppy life.
It’s been a very difficult few days. We found out the rabbits needed to be saved from going to slaughter right after Hoppington passed away. It was difficult to organize this rescue while grieving the loss of such a sweet rabbit. But we knew we had to carry on & help these 28 rabbits discover a beautiful life. We’ve endearingly called this the Hoppington Rescue, in the memory of a courageous rabbit who had to endure a lot of pain in his young life. Thank you Hoppington, you gave us the courage, strength, and motivation to save the lives of 28 of your friends. ❤🐰
Thanks to #FarmSanctuary for arranging placement & transporting 14 rabbits to the fabulous folks at the #SanDiegoHumaneSociety
Thank you to the #RabbitAdvocates , #IndigoAnimalRescue,#AnimalPlace, #LeapsandBoundsRabbitRescue for giving these rabbits a place to Bunny.❤ A big thank you to Lisa & Rich for transporting for the Friends of Unwanted Rabbits. Thank you to my dear Auntie Heather at#TheRabbitHaven for her support, love, and financial donation to all the rescues that took in the rabbits.
We are also thankful that this farm decided to discontinue raising rabbits for meat & reached out to to have the lives of these rabbits saved. We can only hope & pray that more farms see rabbits as we do, pets & not food.
