Thanksgiving Message from Bunny World Foundation

Historically, Thanksgiving began as a tradition to give thanks for a good harvest and to rejoice together with the rest of the community after much hard work. What better time to celebrate our EIGHT and a half year voyage and give thanks to ALL who have contributed to our Mission.  

Especially, we thank each and every foster, volunteer, and supporter here who has contributed their time, energy and commitment to BWF. It takes a community to move mountains and without all of us doing our parts we couldn't even make a dent. Thank you for showing your support through thick and thin and especially during times of crisis, for we couldn't possibly overcome them if it weren't for YOU!

Now, as bunny loving families across America sit down to full dinner tables with their pet bunnies enjoying all the privileges of a family member, it's more important than ever to remember million others suffering in bunny mills, labs, backyard breeders, fur farms, and abattoirs. Most people would be unaware that most animal cruelty laws exempt farm animals and rabbits are not even covered under federal humane slaughter laws -- so their lives and deaths for our holiday celebration are unconscionably painful. This said, the road is still rocky with many challenges ahead, but continue we must and we thank you for your continued support in our efforts to make the world a better place for our much loved companions.

If you would like to do give a special gift for this Thanksgiving holiday, Please CALL THE FOLLOWING VET and help BWF with our Medical bill:  ***Northwood Animal Hospital at (949) 559-1992 ($3,000)

Holly Needs Your Help to See and Walk Again!

Do you remember this sweet girl who made an appearance on ABC this very May? If not, please scroll down to see her 2015/2016 history.

Holly is a 8.5 year old Santee Alley baby, who was once adopted. A year later she was returned back to BWF. She and her sister Sunny are STILL an ADOPTABLE DUO in need of PERMANENT HOME. Most Rexes are loving & tame, but these two were hand-raised by BWF as babies, so they are even more. See the photos when they were tiny babies. They were 10 day old orphans when confiscated by LAPD from the illegal animal vendors and rescued by BWF.

In 2015 Holly suffered a broken toe that led to two difficult surgeries and amputation. She was hospitalized for quite some time and had a long recovery time. When she finally came back things went back to normal and she’s been going strong for months. All of a sudden came another challenge – Corneal Ulcer in BOTH eyes followed by yet another challenge – her back legs giving up!

Holly’s been treated at Northwood Animal Hospital by Dr. Hsu as well as by two Ophthalmologists depending on their availability. Her primary eye doctor, however, is Dr. Michael Chang at VCA West LA Animal Hospital, her next appointment scheduled for Nov 7.

In the meantime Holly is being cared at the most wonderful foster home. Her mom Fleuretta who also happens to be a nurse has been an absolute blessing. From her daily (twice!) baths, physical therapy, three eye meds (3 – 4 times a day), multiple (pain & misc) meds, massages and loads of snuggle time – to say that Holly is being pampered is an understatement! However, she still can’t walk and BWF is still responsible for her extensive medical bills. Holly was last seen by Dr. Hsu on October 10 and these are the meds/supplements that she needs on consistent basis:

• Neo-Predef Powder
• Silver Sulfadiazine Cream 
• Chlorhex Duoxo 3% Shampoo 
• Metacam 
• Optixcare
• Sodium Chloride Ophthalmic Ointment 
• Ofloxacin Solution
• Turmeric
• Echinacea
• Colloidal Silver

Holly’s vet bill is now close to $2K and in order to continue the treatment, we need help. Also, we’d like to make her a wheel chair and thus are shopping around. If you know of any great source to refer us to, or if you’d like to sponsor the part or the whole ordeal, we would love to hear from you. Please e-mail us.

In the meantime, DIRECT DONATIONS TO THE VET ARE APPRECIATED. Please call Northwood Animal Hospital at (949) 559-1992 (7am – 6 pm) and make a donation towards BWF's Medical bill. The vet only accepts $100+ donations! For a lesser amount, you can make an ON-LINE DONATION via PAYPAL and make a note “for Holly.”

Also, please CONSIDER SIGNING UP FOR A MONTHLY DONATION even if it’s just a few dollars. It’s a huge help! We are an ALL-volunteer rescue and all we ever ask for is the help with our extraordinary vet bills or/and supplies. 

If you’re experienced in special needs buns and are interested in ADOPING this 8.5 year old Beauty who also happens to be a “Kissing Machine” along with her sister Sunny please e-mail us ASAP, we’d love to consider you.

Thank you so much!

BWF Awarded a 5K Grant by Petco Foundation for May 2016 Grant Cycle

Bunny World Foundation is deeply honored to be a recipient of the funds designated to assist 300 bunnies rescued from high kill shelters in Los Angeles City/County during the Summer of 2016. The project, made possible by the Petco Foundation enabled us to continue our mission through January of 2016 and tackle many medical challenges related to the rabbits we rescued.  Thanks to our Adoption & Charitable Partner Petco Foundation, together, we continue to make a real difference for animals.

About the Petco Foundation: At the Petco Foundation, we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $125 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. With our more than 8,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than 4.2 million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started. Visit petcofoundation.org to learn more about how you can get involved.
