Default Dog walker saves rabbits from being thrown in the river

http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/News...0114060000.htm

Makes you hopping mad, doesn't it? She's right, what goes through people's heads that they think this is the best thing to do? Perhaps they think it costs to sign over a rabbit to a shelter.

Aren't they lovely buns though

They are gorgeous, so glad they escaped a horrible fate. Why do people not take them to the rescue. I hope they all find wonderful homes, am sure some of them may be bonded and can stay together.

Unfortunately it does cost money to surrender a pet to some shelters. This is the case with the humane society in my city. Glad he was saved, human beings can be so awful

Where I'm at it doesn't but he could have looked up Rabbit Rescues
as they are all over the place and that doesn't cost any money..
or Humane Societies which mostly doesn't charge at intake to accept
animals..

I don't think it would have cost him anything at the Rabbit Residence. I volunteer there so I'll probably be seeing these fluffy bundles at some point! With any luck the publicity might be a silver lining, donations etc are always good...
