Hello everyone! I would like to introduce You to one of the Polish Rabbit Rescues. It is the first shelter for rabbits that was created in Poland. It was possible due to the kindness of the Animal Shelter in Toruń that made a room available for the Rescue. At first, the room wasn't encouraging at all: But Girls from the Rescue were able to see a potential in this room and they worked really hard to change it into something that would become a temporary home for many rabbits. Did They succeed? Oh, You can see for Yourselves We call this place "the asylum for rabbits" because they can feel safe there. The shalter is only a temporary place for rabbits and they are put in temporary foster homes, whenever it's possible. Currently, there are 93 rabbits under care of the Rescue. I will introduce some of the rabbits to You Pachino Pachino and her sister Ethel were given up by a snake owner. They were to serve as a dinner for a snake, so someone broke their legs so as to prevent the from running away. Fortunately for the rabbits, they turned out to be too big for the snake and the owner wanted to get rid of them. Apart from broken legs, Ethel was healthy and she was adopted soon. However, Pachino suffers from e.cuniculi and she had to be treated. and Ethel Karotka (Carrot) Karotka was taken away from a commercial rabbit breeder during intervention. All of the rabbits (and 53 other rabbits) were in appaling condition. Their fur became one, big tangle and every move was very painful for them. They lived in overcrowded cages that had additional occupants -fungi and maggots. Yesterday she underwent a surgery -she has a purulent infection caused by bacteria. One of her eyes had too be resected. Rabbits that were confiscated during this intervention had various health problems: abscesses, e.c., syphilis, Staphylococcus aureus, genetic defects and etc. Majeranek (Marjoram) One of the rabbits taken away during another intervention. All rabbits (7) suffered from myxomatosis and were in a really bad condition. They were treated with interferon, among others, and all of them survived which at the time seemed to be impossible. At first, Majeranek looked like this: And now: This is our blog: http://www.azyl.vot.pl/ (it's in Polish but we always try to post the same information on our facebook profile: https://www.facebook.com/rabbits.torun).
