Save the Bunnies Campaign

Janine Scheffler is a dear friend of mine whose whole life is devoted to animals. She has bred and kept bunnies since she was a teenager and now her entire line of rabbits (including show bunnies) is in danger. Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus has made its way to Gauteng and the only way to save her bunnies from a horrific death is to vaccinate. The vaccine has only become available recently and with 80 rabbits to vaccinate plus vet fees she cannot do this alone. 

If she cannot vaccinate and the virus makes its way to her farm then it is most likely that all of her rabbits will die. There is no cure. If she is able to vaccinate then not only will she save her rabbits but she will help create herd immunity and save countless other rabbits. This virus is transmitted through insects, fur of infected animals among other things and so one infected rabbit can spread this virus literally on the wind.

The funds raised will be used to pay for the vet fees and all the vaccines.

Please help my friend save her animals.
