My friend, Randy, has just started his rescue and has gotten to an overwhelming point when one of his girls who was recovering from spay surgery tried to jump out of her pen.  She may have gotten hung up and broken her back.  Her name is Madison and she is still at the vet's office in Modesto, CA.

Madison was one of 33 bunnies that came from a family that irresponsibly let two "easter" bunnies breed.  By the time Randy got there he had to deal with 2 pregnant females and one little that was just a couple of weeks old along with possibly two litters of juveniles.  A few days after getting them settled in his home the other female gave birth to a litter of 9 babies. It made him very upset to take in the original mother rabbit and have her litter aborted so she could be spayed. Add these bunnies to the 16 that Randy already had and you can see why he is not able to deal with a disabled rabbit and care for the rest. 

Randy has had 4 rabbits that were taken by other rescues but it is not enough.  He works a full-time job and has made arrangements with his vet to spay and neuter all of the babies.  That is going to cost a lot.  He is not complaining and is determined to get them all done without any other mishaps.

Is there anyone who can help Randy with this little girl?  Madison is half agouti of unknown breed and half Dwarf Hotot. The mother is an agouti and the father is a Hotot. Here's a link to her picture on the rescue page on facebook.  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=225507880799294&set=a.223144521035630.71841.100000202514207&type=1

This is the name of the rescue that Madison is now in.  Trinket's Memorial Rabbit Sanctuary, Ceres, CA.  You can contact me or find the rescue on facebook.  We are currently working on setting up a page on petfinder.

Here is a recent picture of Madison.  She is sitting even though she has a lower back injury.

Poor bun. It's great that he is helping in this situation.

I edited your post to remove the street address of the Vet Clinic she is at, and I am going to be moving this post to the rescue section later today.

I hope he finds her a place soon. Randy sounds like a fantastic rescuer - I have liked his page and will spread the news.

Thank you Beka and Sarita.  This poor bun needs help ASAP.  Randy has no experience with a disabled bunny.  I have contacted someone who has one to see if they can talk him through some of the issues but he needs to find a home for her so she will be getting better care than he can give her and the rest of his bunnies.  Right now while he is in the process of separating litters and doing the neuter/spays he has way too much on his plate.

 Thank you everyone for your concern, but Madison is doing great now. I did some studying and am able to take care of her now. She is no longer available, as I will keep her here as a sanctuary bunny.
