Zooh Corner Must Relocate
I just received this message from my friend Cat Logsdon at Zooh Corner Rabbit Rescue:
"Zooh Corner Rabbit Rescue has been notified by the leadership of the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society of their intention to reclaim use of the space currently occupied by the shelter rabbits to create a new animal intake area. WE MUST VACATE OUR AREA AT THE SHELTER AND HAVE ALL THE RABBITS RELOCATED BY MAY 31, 2011. After May 31, the shelter will focus exclusively on housing and adopting out dogs and cats. While they will continue to accept rabbits surrendered to the shelter or picked up as strays, they will no longer house rabbits on their property. We have verbal confirmation that rabbits will have a maximum three-day holding period before being euthanized.
Our top priority is to find safe placements for the rabbits currently at the shelter, as well as any additional rabbits taken in before May 31. After that date, it will be our direct goal to help get every rabbit that come in to this shelter OUT of the shelter before the holding period expires. We are working to develop a network of rescues and additional foster homes to help us ensure the safety and well-being of all rabbits taken into this shelter both now and in the future.
We can make this happen, but we need your help, and TIME IS RUNNING OUT! We are seeking foster and forever homes; transporters willing to drive or fly rabbits to other rescues, sanctuaries, or more distant forever-homes; and volunteers to help expand our outreach and education efforts. Read more about the changes and how you can help by downloading this flyer.
For more information or if you can help in any way, please contact Zooh Corner President Cat (Alexandra) Logsdon at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your continued support!"
