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 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
• Sodium Chloride Ophthalmic Ointment
• Ofloxacin Solution
• 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!
