New homes found for rescued rabbits in Lee County
FORT MYERS, Fla. - The last of more than 40 rabbits rescued for a hoarder now have new homes. The Lee County Domestic Animal Services' shelter was overflowing with English Lop and Mini Lop rabbits after their owner became overwhelmed.
The rabbits were sterilized prior to adoption to prevent further out of control breeding.
In the past LCDAS has had difficulty placing rabbits. The Gulf Coast Humane Society and Humane Society of Naples stepped up and took some of the bunnies while LSDAS was able to successfully place more than 20 rabbits that remained.
"We want to thank all of the people who came to the shelter to give these rabbits a second chance," said Glenn Johnson, LCDAS Operations Manager. "We are truly amazed at the number of people who responded immediately," he adds.
