    bunniesOn Monday, April 23, Pima Animal Care Center removed 20 baby bunnies from a property owner who no longer had the resources to care for them. Animal Protection Services learned about the residence in March and has worked with the owner since then to rehome the animals. So far, about 130 rabbits have been rehomed with more still expected. 

    In March, PACC received information regarding a property in Tucson with a large number of rabbits. Animal Protection Officers conducted an investigation and learned the owner had been providing minimal care, but could no longer do so. Over the past month, PACC officers have worked with the property owner to rehome the animals. Many have gone to various community groups identified by the owner, but now that those resources have been exhausted, PACC has stepped in to assist. This is the first batch of bunnies PACC appropriates from the residence. 

    On Monday evening, PACC placed the bunnies up for adoption. To help move them into loving new homes quickly to make room for more, staff set their adoption fee to $15, which includes the spay or neuter surgery. 

    Over the next week, PACC expects to bring in an additional 50 rabbits from the residence and place them up for adoption at the shelter or rehome them through local rescue groups. 

    Folks interested in adopting one of these furry friends should visit PACC’s shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road, soon. Hours of operation are from noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
