Help me save these bunnies!
As many know my rescue history, I saved many buns from a terrible area in CPT recently. Raven, Cole, Bear, Oreo, Peter and many others, to name a few have received medical treatment, sterilised and successfully rehomed.
Unfortunately, there are about 25 bunnies needing to be saved, some need vet visits, and all of them need to be sterilised. The area has started to worsen for these poor little bunnies, and cats are picking off the babies by digging them out of their burrows, chasing them till they die of fear.
Crows are eating the eyes out of the baby and young bunnies before they have even had a chance to live. The above seems to be enough hardship without the human element. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case.
The human element has kicked in full force! There is a large number of residential homes being built, and many of the bunnies are now being caught and ending up as food. I can’t even fathom how these poor domesticated animals are being killed.
I have taken up the task with a friend to catch sterilize and release or home the tamer ones until such a time we can find a place for all the buns.
Each sterilisation costs R400 per bunny. A total of R12 000 has to be raised to save these bunnies. I have 9 bunnies from this park going to be rescued and sterilized next week, so I am off to a good start.
Please help me help them! If you can contribute towards a steri or pay
for one steri, I can save these bunnies within the next few weeks and end the
suffering in this area.
The vet who assists with my rescue, is Dr Coetzee from the Centre for Avian, Reptiles and Exotics in CPT. You may contact them should you require any confirmation about my projects to help animals :)
