A recent citizen complaint has lead to the removal of 35+ rabbits from a San Jose chihuahua breeder. Yes, you read that correctly – a small dog breeder who expanded to breeding rabbits! The SJACS animal control officers are rescuing the rabbits first as they are in the more dire need of help. The rabbits are mostly rex and lion head rabbits. Most are sad appearing, but sweet bunnies. So, far rescue groups have taken in the most needy of bunnies – blind from cataracts, infested with ear mites, scared and frightened, etc. Thank you Rabbit Haven, Humane Society of Silicon Valley, and House Rabbit Society! The others will be spay/neutered and available for adoption at the San Jose Animal Care Center over the coming weeks. Refer your friends to www.SanJoseAnimals.com to see the available critters.
The little dogs will be receiving help as well. More to come.
If you would like to help, consider fostering a shelter animal, donating much -needed supplies or money for medical needs, donating time for transporting animals to vet visits and rescue organizations, etc. Donations for rabbits should be marked “Rabbit Medical Fund” and donations for the dogs ” Dog Medical Fund”. Together we can help make a difference for all the community and shelter animals.
