Fall River Bunny Recovering After Someone Dumped Her in the Woods
It physically pains me anytime I hear about someone abandoning their pet. From dogs and cats to bunnies and even fish, our pets rely on us to feed them, give them shelter and love them unconditionally, and it's hard to imagine someone intentionally ignoring those needs.
Luckily, after experiencing this kind of abandonment firsthand, a SouthCoast bunny is getting a precious second chance at life, and we could not be more excited for her to embark on a new journey full of love in her forever home.
Someone dumped the bunny in the woods to fend for herself, and she almost lost her life as a result. According to MVMA Charities, a good Samaritan called Fall River Animal Control after finding the bunny, who "was scared but sweet." Dr. Deb Gehrke of Pet Partners was able to perform emergency surgery, and since then, the bunny has recovered and was brought to House Rabbit Network after being cleared for adoption.
"We’re so thrilled that she didn’t have to be euthanized for this injury and that she got the second chance she deserved thanks to our Stray Animal Program," MVMA Charities wrote on Facebook on Thursday.
The MVMA Charities' Stray Animal Program brings together animal control officers and veterinarians and helps fund much-needed medical care for stray animals across Massachusetts. Learn more about the Stray Animal Program on MVMA Charities' website.
