House Rabbit Society of Missouri: Emergency Medical Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

To help pay for the orthopedic surgery Cammie required for her broken front legs so that it would be possible for her to survive and find a loving home.

Rabbits are the third most abandoned pet in the country. There are few resources for them. We have a tremendous number of animal agencies and individuals calling us for help. Our shelter houses around 150 bunnies. Spending a huge sum of money on one animal does not help make you responsible towards all of the other animals in your care. This grant allowed us to do both.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Cammie was found and brought to us with both front legs broken. There was someone who thought she’d been thrown out of an apartment window. The breaks were serious and required an orthopedic surgeon. She spent several months with pins holding her bones together, but the surgery ultimately worked, leaving Cammie healthy, happy, and able to walk again. Not only was Cammie healthy, but she quickly found her furever home, so now she is not only healthy, happy, and hopping again — she is loved.
