    Help us Help an Overflow

    Update, January 9, 2017 -- Greyson is the first of the Sandusky County Twelve to find a family. He is happily hopping around the home of his new parents, Rich and Donna Brady. In the photo below with the mom and babies, he is the gray little one.

    Out of the Court and, with your Help, into a Home


    In June, we were contacted to see if we could help with a cruelty case in Sandusky County involving twelve seized rabbits, including a mom with four babies.  There are two Flemish Giants, one Dutch boy, and the rest are all small Rex buns with a variety of colors.  After moving some of our existing fosters to other foster homes (thank you!!), we squeezed them in.  Tied up in the legal system, we were unable to alter or adopt out any of these rabbits until they were surrendered five months later.


    During the holding time, the babies aged enough that they all had to be moved to individual housing, using up even more precious area for other fosters.  Since these rabbits are using nearly all of our housing space, we’ve had no room for stray intakes.  Of course, un-altered rabbits tend to be less than neat and have poor litterbox habits … and these guys are exceptional urine sprayers, hence much time is spent on cleaning.  However, everybun is healthy and friendly now and the process of getting them altered has begun.  Clearly, this will be a long and expensive process!  Can you help them – and us?  Click to donate directly for them.

    These bunnies in BHRS foster care need a permanent home. All BHRS rabbits are (or will be) spayed/neutered, litterbox-trained, and socialized.
