Bunnies on Board

$1,625 of $1,850 goal

Raised by 31 people in 1 month
Hi! Our names are Jodie and Rodney.  We transport bunnies that need help, across the country to reputable rescues!  We have a great deal of experience in transporting bunnies across long distances   Last year we did several bunny transports including one from Hurricane Irma to Virginia, Ohio and Indiana. This past Nov. we transported bunnies from Las Vegas to Minneapolis & Wisconsin.

Currently, we are working to help transport approx.  15 rabbits from the Las Vegas dumping grounds to Ontario, Canada, into the safety of a registered charity, called Rabbit Rescue Inc.

In Las Vegas, there are 3 large dumping grounds where people leave their bunnies and there are over 500 of them!  The rescue groups (Bunnies Matter in Vegas Too & Rusty and Furriends) are working diligently to provide food, medical treatment, spays/neuters, shelter and love to these bunnies in need!  They need help, which is why the bunnies are going to Rabbit Rescue. If we can help by raising transport funds here, the rescues can continue to work on raising money for medical care.  This is the first of 7 transports to be completed in 2018.

We will begin the transport to Ontario on 27th January 2018 for the cross country drive.  The estimated cost of this transport is $1500 (for van costs, initial carriers for this and future transports, fuel, overnight stays, etc).  We donate our time to help these wonderful organizations.

Once in the care of Rabbit Rescue Inc, they will get anything they need until they find their forever home.  Help us reach our goal of $1500 to get these bunnies loving homes!!

You can follow the transport on Facebook at Bunnies Matter in Vegas Too and also Rusty and Furriends)

If you are in Ontario and can foster, adopt or sponsor one of these bunnies, please visit: www.rabbitrescue.ca

If we receive support in excess of our goal, those funds will go to the next transport, scheduled in March.

We are 4 days into our journey. All the bunnies are doing ok. 10 bunnies were dropped off at St Louis yesterday to go from there to their forever homes. Today begins the section of the trip from Chicago to Canada. We have 2 bunnies that had to be left behind due to medical reasons. They will be transported later in the month by myself via aircraft. We have to pay cabin costs for the rabbit, hence the increase on our Go Fund Me. Could you please spread the word to include these special bunnies to make it to their forever homes as well?

A big THANK YOU to all who have overnighted the bunnies during this adventure as well as all the work done by Rabbit Rescue Inc, Rusty and Furriends and Bunnies Matter in Vegas Too for saving their lives!

Also, remember any funds over our goal goes directly to the next transport in February...hopefully somewhere warm (yesterday 3F in Cambridge - final destination)

This is amazing! We are within dollars of reaching our goal!!!! I would binky if I could! (might not be a pretty sight, so I will leave that to the bunnies)

Please continue to spread the word and keep in mind whatever funds are not used for this transport will be applied to the next transport so that more bunnies lives will be saved and be transported to new homes!

Thanks to everyone who has donated! We are getting close to our goal! Remember every cent goes directly to the costs of the transport so it helps the Vegas rescues continue their work! Remember after we reach our goal for the Canada transport, anything extra goes directly towards the next transport in March! We have just learned that people have removed water and feeding bowls from the dumpsite so getting as many rabbits out of there, attending to their medical needs and transporting them to their new home, is of the utmost importance! Please help the rescues in Vegas transport as many bunnies to their forever homes. Please spread the word!
