HRSS received an urgent email from a rabbit owner seeking
financial help to sterilize her rabbits. In her email,
she mentioned that people started dumping their unwanted
rabbits into her house after knowing that she’s
keeping cats as well.
It started off with 1 unsterilised male, and subsequently,
other intact females were dumped and they started breeding
until the population hit 10 rabbits. As there’re
also cats in her place, some of the young baby bunnies
were attacked by the adult cats.
Afraid that the situation will get worst, she wrote
to us as a last resort of help as she was unable to
raise the money for their sterilization to control the
After corresponding with this lady, we made a trip down
to her place to better understand the situation. HRSS
agree to help sterilize all the intact rabbits in hope
that it’ll stop the breeding and improve the situation.
It was arranged that a total of 8 bunnies will be sterilized
(2 of them had already been sterilized earlier prior
before HRSS was alerted). 4 of them were scheduled to
be sterilized on 31 Jan 2007 and the other 4 will be
scheduled to be sterilize in February.
Unfortunately, we received news that some of the female
rabbits were pregnant again. 2 intact males broke out
of their enclosure and created havoc before they were
sterilized. A total of 15 baby rabbits were born. All
adult rabbits had been sterilized as at now.
HRSS will need to sterilize and rehome all the rabbits
(adults and babies) and we sincerely need your help
