MICHIGAN ANIMAL SANCTUARY ADOPTS 511 RABBITS OF “THE GREAT BUNNY RESCUE OF 2006”
ALL 1600 Homeless Rabbits Now Spoken For!

For animal lovers, the idea of saving homeless animals is hard to resist. But for one Nevada woman, her good intentions turned into a huge problem.

Last Spring, the Reno resident had to contact the Best Friends Animal Society, an organization that works with shelters and rescue groups nationwide, when her effort to save a few homeless rabbits got out of hand because they were not spayed or neutered. By the time the volunteer veterinarians showed up for “The Great Bunny Rescue of 2006”, there were 1,600 rabbits in her backyard on less than an acre of land.

Today, it is MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: 511 rabbits were recently taken in by the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary in Willis, Michigan. With the arrival of the “Reno 500” Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary is probably the single largest rabbit rescue sanctuary in the country. In addition to these 500, one person adopted some of the bunnies into a specially constructed home with a special "bunny area" including a patio. Fifteen adopted rabbits put on a daily show at their new home in Huntsville, Texas, with people stopping by to watch them run and sprawl in the sun on their back.

This has been Best Friends’ largest rescue operation since Hurricane Katrina. About 450 rabbits are still at the “rescue ranch” in Reno but are just waiting for transport to their new homes with families or rescue groups.
