(www.lacollinadeico nigli.net) which offers a shelter to abandoned rabbits,
rats, mice and other small animals.

their bunnies, thinking that they will survive. We have been monitoring the
situation, rescue the animals and find them new families.
Suddenly, at the beginning of this year, the Mayor of Faenza gave order to
catch all the remaining rabbits. They have been grouped all together into a
small fence, some of them died during the captures and others are killing
