Bunny Bunanza in Northern California

The Contra Costa Times reported that a member of Bunnies without Borders inadvertently discovered 120 rabbits in the backyard of a Pittsburg, California home. When a woman was selling rabbits for $10 a piece at a garage sale Michelle Miller inquired since rabbits sold at these prices often end up as snake food or used in dog fighting. It seems the woman thought she had two males originally and a few months later ended up with a whole lot more than one pair of rabbits. The House Rabbit Society has provided a grant to help with care, spaying and food. About a dozen of the Pittsburg rabbits will be offered at an adoption event Saturday (tomorrow) at the East Bay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Tri-Valley branch in Dublin, CA, They are also looking for a sanctuary situation for some of the rabbits. For more information call: 707-330-990 They are really beautiful bunnies from their photos. (Photo credit: Sherry LaVars, Bay Area News Group)
