These 3 wonderful rabbits are in an SF Bay Area shelter and will be killed this SUNDAY, Feb. 20th if adopters or rescues are not found. If you know of the shelter, please do not contact them directly. Please share and cross-post this message! If you can help by adopting or fostering, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly, as soon as possible!
Upper respiratory infections are not an expensive condition to treat - often with one or two courses of antibiotics and one or two vet visits, the infection can be resolved. Many vet offices will give you a free first vet visit for adopting a shelter rabbit, including the VCA clinics which have a coupon on their website which you can print and bring with you for a free first visit.
And Eni, the third rabbit, sounds like she just needs and understanding home without small children and a larger space (like an exercise pen, or free-roaming in the house) to be happy - she has no special medical needs. She just needs someone who will give her love and spoil her and help her to learn to trust people again.
If you, or someone you know is able to help by adopting or fostering, please contact the email above! Thanks!

Hello, my name is Bridgette and I'm a 2 year old, female rabbit with an upper
respiratory infection (URI). I'm taking medicine for the sneezing, but with so many
other rabbits and animals to care for, it'll be hard for me to get healthy quickly at the
shelter. With limited space and more animals showing up at the shelter each day, my
time is running out and I need to find a new home by February 20th. I was just
surrendered to the shelter in January, after a short, 4-day stay with a family where their
child took care of me. It's hard to know where I picked up the URI, but one thing's for
sure – some TLC and proper care will make a world of difference in my health!
I'm a medium sized lady with a big appetite for fun, so I'll be sure to
bring lots of fun and laughter to your home! I'm very energetic and keep
active by hopping around to check things out. I'm also very friendly and
greet new friends with bunny kisses – all that I ask in return is a loving,
forever home! Will you answer this rabbit's call for help? I'm located in
Northern California. If you can come to my rescue, please e-mail
Hello, my name is Chestnut and I'm a
medium sized, female rabbit with an upper
respiratory infection (URI) and possible
cataracts in both eyes. Although the URI
should clear up after some time, my eyes will
need special attention from the right doctor
and special adopter. The shelter doesn't
have the resources to treat me so I'm hoping
that someone out there will be able to take
me in! Whether a rescue group or adopter,
this friendly and fun lady needs a miracle by
Sunday, February 20th!
I arrived at the shelter in December and no one noticed
my eye condition then, so folks didn't realize that I
couldn't see them clearly when they approached me. My
reputation was a bit tarnished since I would be startled by
hands appearing suddenly, causing me to grunt a little.
Now that the volunteers know my condition and make me
aware of their approach, it's been great! I feel safer
knowing that it's friendly visitors taking me out of the cage
for fun and I can thoroughly enjoy myself during play time.
I even do lots of happy flops and enjoy lounging around,
too. I'm located in Northern California. If you can come
to my rescue, please e-mail email@example.com.
My name is Eni and I'm a small, all white female rabbit. I'm spayed and
about 1-1/2 years old. I came to the shelter in October of 2010 and although
I was nervous when I first arrived, the volunteers were kind and patient and I
really enjoyed getting TLC and having play time. Soon after arriving, I was
spayed and it's been very tough ever since. Although the volunteers still visit
and I get my play time, I haven't adjusted to life here with the loud noises,
strange people and limited time to be myself. In frustration, I've become
cage protective and bit a few people, so the shelter can no longer support
me. I have until Sunday, February 20th to find a new home or for a rescue
group to take me in before I am euthanized. Would you please help this
young lady? I'm a sweet gal, but my personality has been buried inside. The
volunteers have noticed that after I've had a chance to be away from the
cage and play outside, I am much more relaxed and easy-going, and even
attention-loving! I am sure to blossom with your patience and love! I'm
located in Northern California. If you can come to my rescue, please e-mail
