Spay & Neuter Campaign Progress Tracker

Over 80% of the rabbits surrendered to shelters each year in the US are not spayed or neutered, and 70% of them are adults.

Most of these are given up by their owners because the owners have too many rabbits or unplanned litters and cannot house them and so are no longer able to care for their rabbits. Since most house rabbits are purchased rather than adopted, and a rabbit litter can have as many as 10 baby bunnies, the problem is easy to see. It’s because rabbits breed…well…like rabbits.

The premise of the campaign is pretty simple: raise money, spay/neuter rabbits, keep rabbits with their owners and from getting dumped. Rinse and repeat.

We aim to raise a whopping $6,000 to spay and neuter locally owned house rabbits in 2018.
$3000 of this will be from our matching donor - Willie's Fund.

Our bunny goal is to alter 100 rabbits, which in turn would
prevent over 500 unwanted or uncared for baby bunnies
. That is a lot of bunnies “saved.”

Bunnies up next:

August:

  • Bolt - Bolt's family took him in to prevent him from going to a shelter. He is very friendly and loves attention and food, and he is working on learning some tricks. Once neutered and healed up, Bolt will be bonded to the family's other rabbit, Shadoe. Bolt is a Willie's Fund community outreach bunny.
  • Branch - Branch might look like a standard black bunny--but he is a fountain of joy. He was found by a Good Samaritan all the way up in Mount Vernon, who took him in and cared for him before handing him over to Rabbit Haven. Branch is getting to hang out with the other bunnies at the barn, and is as happy as ever.

  • Baymax - Baymax is a brown and black Rex with a lovely white eyeliner. He's been with his owner since a baby and is a part of the family. But as he's matured, Baymax, like any male rabbit, is marking his territory, making it difficult for his family to keep him indoors. Baymax's neuter surgery will allow him to stay with his family and not go into a shelter. Baymax is one of Willie's Fund's community outreach bunnies.

Put a plate of greens in front of her and she will work hard to eat every bite of it.

May:

  • Thumper - Thumper and Nivens came to their foster mom in October of 2017. Nivens was very aggressive and would try to nip at Thumper any chance he could. Thumper (the female) was always on high alert to escape from Nivens. She has since been given her own cage and is set to be spayed by courtesy of Wille's fund. Nivens is going to be fixed as well. Thumper now sprawls out in her cage, grooming herself.  Her fur is growing back from the places Nivens would bite.
