HSGD Helps Save Rabbits in Wake of Louisianna Flooding

By: The Humane Society of Greater Dayton

This past weekend, members of our volunteer group the Bunny Brigade participated in a multi-state, multi-bunny rescue to help save the lives of rabbits from a rescue organization in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This rescue group needed help due to the flooding down there and they had nowhere to house the bunnies in their care.

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton was one of many rescues to jump in and help! Our Bunny Brigade drove to Kentucky where they picked up 7 rabbits. Four of these rabbits Abby, Squirrel, Doc and Happy, are staying at our shelter, while we worked with another group to transport the other three to a shelter in Michigan. Right now, Abby and Squirrel are available for adoption. Doc and Happy will be ready later in September.

If you are interested in helping the rabbits in our care, please make a donation to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and in the notes sections please specify that it is for the Rabbit Program. You can also become a member of our Bunny Brigade by volunteering! For more information, check out our Volunteer page!
