When at least 77 rabbits were removed from a Dunwoody, Georgia home last week, only 11 were initially rescued by the Georgia House Rabbit Society. Many more were taken to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park, an RV campground in Bremen Georgia, where it was feared they would not receive the care and attention they required.
Today the GHRS has released the good news that they have taken in all of the Jellystone rabbits. Here is a portion of their statement:
This morning a few representatives from the GHRS headed to Jellystone after an agreement was made to take the females for immediate vetting. Once there, we were gravely concerned about the conditions of ALL OF THE RABBITS and we took each and every one of them from the property. The initial report is that we took 23 rabbits under our care. They are en route to Windward Animal Hospital at this very moment. The buns were hungry, cold and very thin. We will continue with updates as we learn more about their condition. WE NEED IMMEDIATE FOSTER HOMES!! We have rescued over 30 rabbits from this hoarding situation and need to place all of them in temporary housing while they recover and adapt. PLEASE get in touch with us if you are willing to look after a bunny for a period of time. You can reach us at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
The RV park had wanted to hold onto the rabbits until their Easter Egg Hunt was over next Saturday. Happily the camp owners were willing to work with the GHRS for the betterment of the bunnies.
