In late April news of an animal hoarding/neglect situation in Amherstview – a community just a few kilometres outside of Kingston – broke. We learned that many rabbits and small animals were involved. We immediately offered our assistance.
The notice on the door indicated that 14 rabbits, 4 guineas and 1 reptile were removed from the house; deceased animals were also found inside the home. Once cleared to do so, the OSPCA asked us to take in the rabbits and guinea pigs (the reptile was adopted). Sadly, within a few days – before coming to us – three rabbits and one guinea pig passed away, leaving 11 bunnies and 3 guinea pigs needing our help.
We rallied foster homes and support and within a week were busy setting up new foster homes with these sweet rescued bunnies and piggies. We are grateful to those who opened their homes and hearts. All animals are now thriving in their foster homes.
