Huge Rescue Underway--Help Needed!

Dear Rabbit Haven family: Volunteers, donors and support family

Officials would not help! The local shelter would not help! Rabbits are dying daily at this site. So the lead coordinator for the San Jose area will begin tonight, saving as many rabbits as possible. We have to prevent more rabbit deaths at this site! You can help.

This is an all volunteer project. No one is paid. Our primarily objective is to save as many rabbit lives as possible and to bring them to health and safety, spay neuter and then find them homes. All rabbits will be treated, spayed and neutered and cared for.

Every evening rabbits are killed or are found dead at this site. Many die trying to find food or escape dogs that are allowed on the property to chase and kill these rabbits. The situation has become a crisis for these 100+ rabbits. This has to stop! We can do this. We can use your help! With the assistance of a handful of dedicated community members we will rescue the rabbits. Sunday 7-19-2009, the rescue will begin. Today is our first stage one “soft rescue”. Selecting animals from outside the perimeter. These are the ones most at risk.

If you can lend you hand to rescue call me and I will put you in touch with the coordinator of this rescue. 831 600-7479 or email director@therabbithaven.org. We need you! We need supplies too.
