We have too many rabbits.
In my three years at TAS, I've never seen us have so many rabbits. Right now, we have no other animals in the Room or Pet Valu - just bunnies. And that's the worst, because rabbits are slow adoptions; they don't get adopted en masse like hamsters.
It's not even just from the litters that are coming of age. It certainly didn't help that we had to deal with 12 babies from the condo hoarder, or that we found 7 babies under a porch. But even without that added pressure, rabbits have been pouring in, a steady stream of strays and owner surrenders. The staff are already overwhelmed, especially as we've had some sick dogs recently and an insane amount of cats, and it feels like the place is at a boiling point. What is this? Summer is over. It's supposed to be calming down, not spiralling out of control. I am generally an optomistic, look-on-the-bright-side-despite-the-stupid-people person, but lately every time I see a new rabbit I just want to scream!
Here's our line-up currently in the Room (not counting Snickers at Pet Uno or Cashew at Pet Valu, or Silver and Emerald still waiting in foster). Know anyone looking for a rabbit? Feel free to share - with 18 rabbits, we're just a little desperate for homes.
That's thirteen in the Room alone. And there may or may not be more coming in today. So if you know anyone interested in adopting, PLEASE pass on the word - we're drowning in bunnies!
