BunnyPeople: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The money was used to help pay for Lucky's neutering surgery.

We spay or neuter every rabbit in our care before each is adopted. Each year we have to raise all the money needed for the 50+ surgeries we schedule. We drive the rabbits 50 miles from our shelter to a Gettysburg, PA, vet who does surgeries at a discounted price for rescue groups. The transportation and post-surgical care is all done by volunteers at their own cost. We make every dollar count!

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

Lucky was thrown from a vehicle traveling 70 miles per hour on the Pennsylvania Turnpike and rolled across the travel lanes without being hit. A motorist who witnessed it stopped to pick him up and located BunnyPeople on her phone as they drove through central Pennsylvania. We met her at a Turnpike exit and our volunteer rushed Lucky to the vet. Somehow he managed to avoid serious head and back injuries; other than cuts and abrasions, his only real injury was a broken toe (the first photo shows his injuries). He recovered so well in foster care that the vet determined he could be neutered within a few months of his ordeal. He is a loving, friendly bun who is now ready to be adopted into his permanent home. Meet Lucky:

UPDATE: Lucky has been adopted!
