House Rabbit Network

The New Hampshire Rabbits

The House Rabbit Network recently worked with local animal control to remove 86 rabbits from a hoarding situation in Lempster, NH. The rabbits were living in filthy conditions, with urine and feces piled high on the floors. The rabbits were thirsty, plagued with numerous injuries and parasites, and were very frightened. Despite this, the bunnies have been remarkably resilient. They are sweet, gentle bunnies that are looking for love, a good meal, and an endless bowl of fresh water.

Animal hoarding occurs when someone keeps a larger than usual number of pets without the ability to properly care for the animals. Although the owners deeply cared for the rabbits, they lacked the ability to provide critical veterinary care to the injured rabbits, they lacked the space to prevent fighting among the rabbits and they were unable to spay and neuter the rabbits in order to prevent the continuous breeding that was occurring.

Several of the bunnies have been treated for various injuries including broken limbs, lacerations, and abscesses. Most of the females have already been spayed and some of the males have begun to be neutered as well.
