Seven abandoned rabbits found in western Ottawa

Seven abandoned bunnies have been delivered to the Ottawa Humane Society this week as the shelter is already dealing with an influx of rabbits available for adoption.

Humane Society says someone found the seven rabbits on Tuesday in the community yard of an apartment building near McEwan Avenue and was taken to the Ottawa Humane Society for treatment.

The rabbits arrive as the Ottawa Humane Society searches for homes for more than 20 rabbits in its care. This week has been declared Rabbit Week.

“We didn’t expect the number of rabbits in our care to rise dramatically this week,” said OHS manager: communications Stephen Smith.

The Ottawa Humane Society says that with resources already strained to house the many animals at the shelter, the organization is calling on the community to find forever homes for the rabbits and foster homes for the rabbits that aren’t ready for it. adoption.
