Tranquility Trail Animal Sanctuary was called regarding a few domestic bunnies running loose in a neighborhood. Being domestic bunnies, they cannot survive long outside, especially in the heat of the Arizona summer. Upon arriving, we discovered that, in addition to the bunnies we were called about, there were also several living in small cages outside in the 100+-degree temperatures. We rounded up the six bunnies running loose. We spoke with the people who had the bunnies in the cages outside about their living conditions and they agreed it was less than suitable and surrendered two more bunnies to us.

All eight bunnies were brought to the sanctuary, where they will live in large, indoor, air-conditioned areas with daily play time and couch time until we find the perfect family for each of them. The $1,000 grant Tranquility Trail received from the Petfinder Foundation and the Animal Rescue Site was instrumental in helping us to spay, neuter and microchip all eight bunnies, which is the first requirement we have before they are eligible for adoption.

Parker, Maya, Rocco, Joey, Tucker, Ava, Piper and Juliet are all now healthy, happy bunnies waiting for their forever families. Thank you so much for this grant to help these eight wonderful bunnies!
