Local Animal Rescue Organization Helping Care for Rabbits Seized from Residence

 “One volunteer, who asked to have her name stay confidential, said these rabbits were in the worst conditions they’ve seen.
We found everything from flea infestations, mites, other parasites, urine scald, rotting flesh, bite wounds. The Angoras were the worst matted rabbits we’ve seen in over 26 years of doing rescue work. At least one has a neural disorder, and one small rabbit has the corneas of both eyes ulcerated,”
Representatives said that all the rabbits will have some problems, and there are things to look for if you got one of them.”A lot of these rabbits look fine, but they should be quarantined for three weeks and watched closely. If they see sneezing, runny nose, noisy breathing, head tilt, incoordination, diarrhea, or if the rabbits are not eating properly they need to go to a vet,”
