My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Sweet Pea (Little Munchkin) was literally snatched from the jaws of early death: A BWF family member spotted the infant under attack by a cat in a Bakersfield apartment courtyard. At barely 3-4 weeks of age, this dumped, helpless, a wisp of a being was almost a snack for outdoor cats; predators that cause devastation to wildlife and victims like Sweet Pea.

The poor abandoned infant was thrown like garbage to the streets, with the broken back, and zero hope of survival -- (likely dumped by a breeder who had no use for a ''broken'' bunny... or by someone who bought this un-weaned baby and mistreated her).

Miraculously, our quick-thinking hero reacted instantly, pulling Sweet Pea from the cat's mouth; after which, he and his girlfriend -(Vegan bunny-advocate and BWF family) - gave the baby proper nourishment, warmth, and a cozy box where she could get her bearings and avoid moving too much. Most importantly, they gave her love; which she responded to immediately... the precious gift of touch and nurturing protection she'd been desperately missing from her mother.

With no time to spare, the remarkable BWF machinery swung into action once again, and mobilized transport for Sweet Pea from distant Bakersfield to eventually Northwood Animal Hospital in Irvine; a convoy that involved several BWF family, and an overnight stay with BWF married Vegan bunny-advocates where she was tended to all night until the morning convoy to the Vet.

All along the way, this angelic, love-giving spirit kept up the fight, enduring her broken back, puncture wounds, trauma, and uncertain future with grit and determination. She's a real survivor who never gave-in to self-pity. Her displays of affection show that she is a budding little love-bug. Now she just needs someone to love her back... for life.

BWF holds regular weekly weekend adoptions where volunteers, fosters and future parents have an opportunity to meet & greet. Since ALL our bunnies are safe in loving foster homes, we cannot bring all of them each and every time, BUT if you call, fill out application, schedule an apt., we will arrange for you to meet the bunnies!

Thank you!

More about this rescue

Background (BWF Mission & History): Bunny World Foundation (BWF) is an ALL-Volunteer, non-profit 501(c) 3 animal welfare organization founded in 2008 in Los Angeles, California. Set up to promote (Shelter) Equity and Equality for Rabbits, BWF’s mission is to combat animal cruelty, illegal animal sales, exploitation and neglect of all animals, through rescue efforts, public education, investigations, legislation, special events, and media attention.

BWF works to reduce rabbit overpopulation and to establish rabbits as companion animals that deserve the same individual rights, level of care, and opportunity for longevity as cats and dogs that live as human companions. BWF manages a complex Foster & Adoption Program that requires constant strengthening and expansion to accommodate new rescues and provide for their intensive care, medication, supplies, and spay/neuter funds. BWF has 300 volunteers/fosters and rescues 500-700 abandoned and abused domestic rabbits a year. In 2014, BWF was featured by CBS as one of the "Five Best Volunteer Opportunities for Animal Lovers in Los Angeles.”

In addition, BWF housed, provided medical care, promoted, and found permanent and loving homes for more than 700 spayed and neutered rabbits.

BWF is proud to celebrate the NINE-year voyage which begun with the fierce struggle to bring to light illegal animal sales in the LA Fashion District. In terms of global outreach, BWF grew to be the largest Rabbit Rescue & Educational Service in the world. With 150K fans on Facebook, BWF’s posts are shared by millions of BWF members worldwide.
