URGENT: A BABY WITH A BROKEN LEG NEEDS SURGERY SPONSOR!

Why are people so selfish and cruel? Why do you get a pet, break his leg, and then dump him at the PUBLIC shelter instead of taking him to the vet and doing the due diligence?
BWF got a call from LAAS on Dec 15 about a 9-week old Netherland Dwarf baby with a broken leg. The shelter was about to euthanize him, so BWF mobilized and stepped up to the plate! CLICK HERE FOR BUTTON'S STORY.

One of our volunteers pulled “Buttons” from East Valley late afternoon and took him to BWF hub in Silverlake for the initial evaluation and treatment.  Another volunteer showed up at 10pm and transported Buttons to yet another volunteer/foster in Anaheim.  She then took him to our vet in Irvine this morning for treatment.
The x-rays showed a fairly clean mid tibia/fibula with lots soft tissue swelling, so our vet decided to try to save the leg with splint/cast. If splint/cast fails, the leg will need to be amputated. 
 
We’re happy to say that Buttons' innitial surgery and splint/cast procedure under general anesthesia went well. Since Buttons is very young, the splint will need to be changed every 2-3 weeks under general anesthesia to accommodate the bone growth.  
BWF needs help with: Radiology, Splint, Surgery ($500), Radiology – Recheck Films ($300), and Medication ($200).  In case of amputation there will be an additional cost of $1,6 K, but let’s hope the latter won’t be necessary. Either way, if you’re able to donate towards Buttons, please call our vet directly.

DIRECT DONATIONS TO THE VET ARE THE MOST APPRECIATED. If you can help at this time, please call Northwood Animal Hospital at (949) 559-1992 and make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation towards BWF Medical bill. Unfortunately, they only accept $100+ donations and the deadline is NOW!  
For a lesser amount, you can make an ON-LINE DONATION via PAYPAL at info@bunnyworldfoundation.org or at http://www.bunnyworldfoundation.org/donate/
Please remember, BWF is an ALL-VOLUNTEER, NON-PROFIT 501(c)3 animal welfare organization with 300+ volunteers/fosters working around the clock to save lives of babies and adults alike. Every week we take bunnies from the death row from LAAS and other situations. Our volunteers are funding the care of their own fosters, providing supplies, and often paying for the surgeries and medical bills. BWF has no paid staff, and with our limited resources we are doing our very best to help the little ones. But our VET BILLS are piling up and we need your help TODAY!  
Finally, please CONSIDER DONATING MONTHLY even if it’s just a few dollars. http://www.bunnyworldfoundation.org/donate/
Thank you so much!

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)

Or…MAKE AN ON-LINE DONATION via PAYPAL or GIVEZOOKS: http://www.bunnyworldfoundation.org/donate/

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!
