It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of our dear Sanctuary bun, Jessica “Lopo”.
Jessie was approximately nine years old and was deeply loved by all who met her. She was a sweet and gentle rabbit. Jessica was also our most vocal resident who would hum and purr at every opportunity. We will miss her deeply and especially miss the joy and excitement that she experienced with every meal or treat. She most especially loved her food.
Binky on, Jessie! — Sue Zimmerman
Meet Jessica (aka “Jessie”). Jessie is a senior bun (6 years +). She is such a sweet lop who has had a hard life. Jessie was removed from the home of a back yard breeder by law enforcement along with several other rabbits who not being well cared for. The judge in Jessie’s case granted custody of her to a local humane society and then she came to live with us.
Jessica had mites and also had a lot of missing fur on her ears and her mouth. She also had a lot of digestive issues. She had had issues with watery eyes and some respiratory problems. With a little TLC, we were able to get Jessica into satisfactory condition but not quite well enough to be adopted.
Jessica has some arthritis and is not able to keep her back end as clean as it should be. On occasion, she still has digestive issues. She tends to over-groom her ears which leads to fur loss around her ears and mouth. Jessica’s health overall is fair. She will do best living out her years with us and in our Sanctuary program. Jessica is well-cared-for and well-loved. She has become one of our favorite seniors here.
Our sanctuary rabbits require special love and care. Their home is with us at the sanctuary and they are not available for adoption. You can directly support these rabbits by sponsoring them.
