Help Save The Remaining Floyd Lamb Park Bunnies

UPDATE (3/25/19) - This morning we caught the last remaining bunny that was using the water tower as a home (they dug under the foundation of the water tower building). We had to move most of our rescue efforts to this spot a few days ago as concrete was scheduled to be poured today. I feel confident that we got them all because we did feed outside the traps to see who was left.  The construction crews also used cameras to search under the structure and they didn't see any. We just got 9 fixed bunnies back from the Animal Foundation yesterday and all seem to be doing well. We took 4 bunnies into Dr. Blakesley of Southern Hills Animal Hospital this morning to be fixed as well. Thank you Bunnies Matter In Vegas Too and Dr. B for sponsoring these 4 bunnies to get fixed!!!

UPDATE (3/23/19) - Sadly "Poppy" passed away a few days after surgery. Thank you, everyone, for your prayers for her.  It's very difficult to not be able to "save them all".  Poppy deserved a great life as a pet and unfortunately, humans failed her.  

UPDATE (3/18/19) -   After a couple of days of being spoiled, "Poppy", the bunny girl with the badly injured foot went to Centennial Hills Animal Hospital today to see Dr. Amgar. He is recommending amputation of the foot to give her the best quality of life. Melissa Summer Pena has generously volunteered to take this sweet girl in for rehab and then she will go to HRS Chicago for adoption. Thank you so much to both Melissa and Jan at HRS Chicago for their support of Poppy! ❤️ Thank you, everyone, for the prayers & donations for Poppy and all the Floyd Lamb Park buns.  

UPDATE (3/13/19) - The first night of the Floyd Lamb Park rescue went well.  We captured 10 adults and 2 young ones.  1 adult has a badly injured foot and 1 adult has some kind of eye irritation issue.  The cost of a radiograph for the injured bunny is around $125 and if amputation is required (likely), that is another $800 with meds.  I was told by Nancy that there is at least one other bunny onsite with a bad leg injury.  Currently, there is not a safe place to return these bunnies at the park, so these funds may also need to be used to help fund some kind of protective fencing. Anyone or any rescue interested in saving any of these buns, please message us.

Original Post:

Amazing bunny volunteers have been feeding the dumped Floyd Lamb Park bunnies for years.  The City of Las Vegas parks division started helping to help capture these bunnies and had the Animal Foundation spay and neuter and relocate them in another section of the park in late 2018 but that effort was stopped and we are now working with the City to help save the rest.   Any donations will be used to fund the rescue of the rest of the Floyd Lamb Park buns (equipment & medical costs), which we have counted about 50 currently.  Currently, the Animal Foundation is set to help with 50 of the spay and neuters that will be required.  Unless other rescued or people step up to help these bunnies, this will be a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) effort as we still have about 300 of 700 from the original Vegas mental health facility dumpsite rescue from last year.  You can see pictures & read our news stories from our efforts there to save over 700 rabbits at the original Vegas Bunny Dumpsite www.bunniesmatter.org

Thank you to everyone who has helped us reach our goal of $3500. We have used a good portion of it already but it has all gone to good use. The temporary structure looks like it won't work well so we are looking into going straight into some type of permanent structure. Still working on a final location and details as our preferred location was not preferred by the City. THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO SAVE THEM!!!!! We could not do this without YOU!!! Everyone has been so generous to the Fabulous Fun Buns of Floyd Lamb Park!!!!

4/2/19 UPDATE: Nothing is ever simple. We spent weeks orchestrating a temporary safe place for the bunnies only to be told yesterday that "the garden folks aren't very keen on having the temporary shelter so close". So we had to cancel meeting with the Tiberti Fencing people until this is resolved. Seriously, rabbits always get the short end of the stick. (Picture is a tiny baby we rescued today!)
