Gwinnett County Animal Control, along with the Georgia House Rabbit Society, took in 200 pet rabbits from traveling petting zoo where the rabbits were allowed to breed out of control.   Despite news reports, the rabbits have syphilis and mites, many have ear mites, bot flies, injuries, sore hocks, missing fur, etc. one had a mass and one had a horrific eye injury that destroyed his eye. Many of the rabbits are underweight.

The rescues need our help!

Plea from GA rabbit rescues:

The "Grayson 200" rabbits are still in need!! A dedicated group of volunteers have been feeding, vetting, and watering them while they're living temporarily at Gwinnett Animal Control. We've also taken more than 70 of them into our homes and the GHRS shelter. Please help us! We still need foster homes, adoptive homes, supplies, and donations. Transport can be arranged to licensed rescues!

Our wish list includes: Pet carriers Xl dog crates Pet exercise pens/play yards Paper towels 33 gallon trash bags White vinegar Spray bottles Used towels/blankets/washcloths Ziplock baggies Bunny toys Brooms and large dustpans AA and AAA batteries Timothy Hay Purina rabbit chow or Fiber3 rabbit chow

Thank you for your continued support, without you the rabbits would have less chance to find help and loving homes.

For The Rabbits,

Linda Sue
