In April, Indiana House Rabbit Society is trying to help two very special rabbits!
Uriah comes from a seizure of over 80 rabbits, mostly Angoras, in Lafayette, Indiana. Uriah had a large abscess on
his face, which is not something the public shelter was equipped to treat, so he came into rescue. He had a CT scan to
help diagnose, then surgery on April 13th. Good news is that the abscess is not dental related! Bad news, one of
Uriah’s turbinates (the bony inside of the nasal cavity) has been eaten away by bacteria. He also has an inner
ear infection... one side is filled with pus. Uriah had been suffering for many years in his prior “home.”
He's now recuperating in foster care and has significant restorative care ahead of him.
was reported on a neighborhood app as a stray bunny with a dangly leg: he was set free in Indianapolis
and was being chased by cats. He made his way to Indianapolis Animal Care Services, where IHRS pulled him for medical
treatment. Xrays at our vet showed his back leg was broken in at least four places! He had surgery (the same day
as Uriah's abscess surgery!) to pin his leg back together. If it doesn't heal properly, Farley will face
amputation of the leg. Farley is recuperating at the vet clinic before he comes to foster care to finish healing.
The combined care for Uriah and Farley is anticipated to be $3500. We are grateful as a rescue with special supporters like
you to be able to treat these very serious cases that public shelters cannot afford. Our exotic veterinary partners and
our experience with rabbit medical care makes us the right team to help these sweet boys! Can you support surgical and recovery
costs for Uriah and Farley? Thanks!!
