Found wandering around a neighborhood searching for food and shelter, Scarlet was spotted by a Good Samaritan who contacted ACDC’s rabbit director. Scarlet’s owner was nowhere to be found, and we just couldn’t leave her to fend for herself--so we welcomed her into our rescue group. Based on her estimated age and when she was found, we believe she is an “Easter Bunny dump,” the unfortunate name given to the many bunnies discarded a few months after Easter every year. Often purchased in pet stores by parents for their kids--without doing any research on their needs and habits--these poor creatures are abandoned outside, given away, or dropped off at shelters (where they are often killed) once the novelty and excitement have worn off.
After being caught and brought to safety, Scarlet adjusted easily to her temporary foster home. She immediately devoured a good, healthy meal and then enjoyed a nap in a safe and comfy environment. We’ve promised Scarlet that she’ll never be homeless again, and we’re looking for a person or family to make that promise a reality.
Would you have room in your home and heart for a friendly, butterscotch-and-white, lop-eared bunny girl? Scarlet is curious about her surroundings, very active and feisty, and full of personality. She’s a real beauty, too, as you can see in her pictures!
