Oh no, poor Dixie. I've heard that rabbit's bones are extremely fragile and that's a big reason that many vet's choose to amputate but I can understand trying to save the leg too. Another rescuer recently rescued another broken bun whose back left leg was also broken and the vet initially tried to pin it but it was getting an infection and he did end up amputating his leg too.

I couldn't find Dixie on the Rabbit Haven website - which leg is it?

Poor thing. An amputated foreleg would be a new one for me - I'm sure she would be able to adapt though. Do keep us updated on her condition.

This is a related, happy ending type story.  We had a bunny with a missing foot on a foreleg name Jimmy.  He came to the shelter missing the foot, so we don't really know what happened to him.  He was adopted by a family who had a bunny with a missing rear leg, and they are inseparable now.  They even manage to navigate stairs.  Jimmy's Story.

Oh God, how can I not go since I live in Mill Valley and Save a Bunny is in Mill Valley.  I just think I'll be so upset but I guess I have to get over that and try and help.  Markusdark - what kind of help exactly do you think they need?

Sorry for not responding sooner to this email.  Things have been hectic for me.

Of course, the main thing that Save a Bunny could use is foster homes.  They just do not have the room.  They have 3 litters that they need to adopt out as well as all of the new buns that came in so any space that can be freed up will help.

In addition, they can just use the extra hands to help with cleaning cages, treating buns and even just socializing them.  I am pretty sure no help will be refused.  Oh, and donations are always a plus. 

I hate to say it but this is just another chapter in rescue shelters.  I know Rabbit Haven recently had their Guinea Pig flood and they always get hit hard and usually out of nowhere.  There will never be enough room, help or foster homes.

My bonding quest with Maryann - Read about a less than easy bonding with two buns - but they did bond!

We did a large rescue at NTRS last year - about 70 rabbits.

Alot of the cost was upfront with spays and neuters - you especially want to get those possible pregnant females spayed as soon as possible. I would say donations to help cover those costs would be greatly appreciated since they must be done.
