This little baby bunny was just a couple of weeks old when she was brought to SJACS by the family that found her in their yard, unable to walk. A quick thinking shelter staff person called The Rabbit Haven for rescue assistance, and a Haven advocate picked her up from the shelter within one hour of the call. Amita (meaning love) was unable to use her back leg or her right front paw. The veterinarian’s exam and x-rays revealed terrible fractures and severe bruising to her abdomen.
An orthopedic surgeon was located and Amita was scheduled for surgery. Then Heather, Director at The Rabbit Haven, contacted PAWS. We were able to help pay for Amita’s surgery through the PAWS Medical Assistance Fund, and Amita is recovering in her foster home until she is ready to be put up for adoption to find her forever home.
