Spay & Neuter Campaign Progress Tracker

Over 80% of the rabbits surrendered to shelters each year in the US are not spayed or neutered, and 70% of them are adults.

Most of these are given up by their owners because the owners have too many rabbits or unplanned litters and cannot house them and so are no longer able to care for their rabbits. Since most house rabbits are purchased rather than adopted, and a rabbit litter can have as many as 10 baby bunnies, the problem is easy to see. It’s because rabbits breed…well…like rabbits.

The premise of the campaign is pretty simple: raise money, spay/neuter rabbits, keep rabbits with their owners and from getting dumped. Rinse and repeat.

We aim to raise a whopping $6,000 to spay and neuter locally owned house rabbits in 2018.
$3000 of this will be from our matching donor - Willie's Fund.

Our bunny goal is to alter 100 rabbits, which in turn would
prevent over 500 unwanted or uncared for baby bunnies
. That is a lot of bunnies “saved.”

Bunnies up next:

February:

  • Dean & Sam - These 11-week-old brothers were found in a small cage, without food, water, and hay. One of our fosters took them in, and as soon as they have been neutered and healed, will be ready for adoption. Dean & Sam are not bonded and will be adopted out separately.

 Dean & Sam - Sam is the one with the spot on his cheek.

Bunnies spayed/neutered:

February:

  • Marley - This black and white little girl came to us from a local vet. Her family had left her unattended while away on vacation, and she got her leg caught, causing prolonged loss of circulation. Her family took her to the vet but surrendered her when they found out that she needed to have her left hindleg amputated. The vet removed the leg, and Marley came to us. Once she is healed up from her spay surgery, this happy and hoppy rabbit will be ready for adoption.
    • UPDATE: Marley is now ready for her forever home. See her adorable pictures here.

Marley - Here, Marley is being held by Dori. Marley is plain adorable!

  • Red - This big, red guy was the main breeder at a facility in Seabeck, WA, that closed down. Red, along with 10 other rabbits, were rescued and taken in by Rabbit Haven. Red is currently living with his foster parents and will be available for adoption, along with his mate Jenny, once they are both fixed.
    • UPDATE: Red and Jenny have been adopted! Their new family were so keen to have them, they reserved Red as soon as he came out of neuter surgery, and patiently waited for Red and Jenny to be re-bonded before picking them up.

Red - Red, aka "Big Red" loves to be petted.

  • Don & Carol - This couple was abandoned in a residential neighborhood after their owner was evicted, having been raising rabbits for medical testing and breeding. A caring neighbor with a big heart contacted Rabbit Haven, and fed and sheltered Don & Carol through several cold weeks before we could trap them and bring them in. Don and Carol are currently awaiting surgery in separate but adjacent enclosures, and will be available for adoption as a pair once fixed and healed. Sue with Don - Don is affectionate and eager to meet everyone.

    January:

    • Lilly - This Flemish-mix was dumped and attacked by an animal. She was found with her left ear severly mauled. Rabbit Haven took her in and managed to save most of her ear. The remaining scarring is only aesthetic. Lilly has perfect hearing and can pick up the sound of a treat bag being opened from across the room. She is all healed up from her surgery and ready to find her forever home. You can read more about Lilly and see her pictures here.
