On April 1 at 2:00 pm, stop by Bedford Public Library to hear from 10000 Carrots Rabbit Rescue, a nonprofit dedicated to saving bunnies.
A small, nonprofit group in Nova Scotia called 10,000 Carrots Rabbit Rescue is committed to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of neglected, unloved, and abandoned farmed rabbits.
Over the past 12 years, they have assisted more than 1200 rabbits, 90–95 percent of which were referred to them by outside sources.
In 2010, two boys entered a veterinary clinic carrying a rabbit Tammy knew had been abandoned but which they had believed had escaped from its owner. She had no idea that her search for a group to accept that one rabbit would result in her starting her own rabbit rescue, but that is exactly what occurred.
She had always worked with rescues, but this experience made her understand that in Canada and the Maritimes, as well as in Nova Scotia, domestic animals frequently fall between the cracks of government programs for protection and rescue. She discovered there was no one to fill that void while searching for a company with experience working with rabbits.
She began assisting specific bunnies, one at a time, using her own funds to spay and neuter, provide medical attention, and provide a healthy diet. She eventually succeeded in finding them a home that was exclusively inside, and she also instructed those who were adopting the bunnies on how to properly care for, feed, and house these devoted sentient beings.
As more people expressed a desire to assist, the 10,000 Carrots Rabbit Rescue Association was established.
The organization also offers a free education program for small groups to help people understand the plight of rabbits in Nova Scotia.
