Humane society, already brimming with bunnies, takes in seven more

The Ottawa Humane Society had already declared July 24-30 as Rabbit Week in a bid to find homes for more than 20 bunnies in its care, when their numbers burgeoned again.

On Tuesday night, seven rabbits were found abandoned in the shared yard of an apartment building near McEwan Avenue in Ambleside, the humane society said in a release.

“We did not expect the number of rabbits in our care to dramatically rise this week,” communications manager Stephen Smith said. “

“We were hoping for the opposite.”

With shelter space strained, the OHS is appealing to the community to find “forever homes” for the adoptable rabbits and foster homes for those not yet ready for adoption.

“We find homes for every adoptable animal, no matter how long it takes,” Smith said.

“Adopters are key in making this possible, and foster homes help ensure the OHS always has resources for the animals who need us most.”

Browse rabbits ready for adoption on the OHS’s website, meet them at the Shirley Kearns Memorial Adoption Centre or learn more about becoming a foster volunteer online.

Call 613-725-3166 ext. 258 to schedule an adoption appointment.
