    Default Rabbit Rescue in Toruń, Poland

    Hello everyone!
    I would like to introduce You to one of the Polish Rabbit Rescues. It is the first shelter for rabbits that was created in Poland. It was possible due to the kindness of the Animal Shelter in Toruń that made a room available for the Rescue. At first, the room wasn't encouraging at all:





    But Girls from the Rescue were able to see a potential in this room and they worked really hard to change it into something that would become a temporary home for many rabbits. Did They succeed? Oh, You can see for Yourselves






    We call this place "asylum for rabbits" because they can feel safe there. The shalter is only a temporary place for rabbits and they are put in temporary homes, whenever it's possible. Currently, there are 93 rabbits under care of the Rescue.

    I will introduce some of the rabbits to You

    Kasztanek (Chestnut)
    Kasztanek (Chestnut) is a very young bunny (he was about 4 months old when he was rescued). Chestnut was found with broken rear paws abandoned in an apartment block. We do not know whether someone hurt him on purpose or it was just an accident. Our vet has been doing everything he can to help Chestnut walk and binky again. Unfortunately, it looks like only the right leg can be saved and the left one may need to be taken away. Keep your fingers crossed for Chestnut - he deserves a better life!




    Pachino
    Pachino and her sister Ethel were given up by a snake owner. They were to serve as a dinner for a snake, so someone broke their legs so as to prevent the from running away. Fortunately for the rabbits, they turned out to be too big for the snake and the owner wanted to get rid of them.
    Apart from broken legs, Ethel was healthy and she was adopted soon. However, Pachino suffers from e.cuniculi and she had to be treated.





    and Ethel


    Karotka (Carrot)
    Karotka was taken away from a commercial rabbit breeder during intervention. All of the rabbits (and 53 other rabbits) were in appaling condition. Their fur became one, big tangle and every move was very painful for them. They lived in overcrowded cages that had additional occupants -fungi and maggots. Many of them were ill. Now, Karotka is happy and she is waiting for new home.





    Franklin
    He was taken away from his owner who got bored with her "toy" and wanted to get rid of the rabbit by killing him. His nails were enourmously long and his eye was running so we were sure he has dental problems. Unfortunately, we were right. It was very bad as the infection started spreading and there was puss even in his nose. However, everything turned out well and Franklin managed to fight off the infection.
    When Franklin was saved, he was 5 years old. What is surprising is that his owner thought that Franklin is female.





    Majeranek (Marjoram)
    One of the rabbits taken away during another intervention. All rabbits (7) suffered from myxomatosis and were in a really bad condition. They were treated with interferon, among others, and all of them survived which at the time seemed to be impossible.

    At first, Majeranek looked like this:


    And now:

    Wow, wow and wow again! This is just amazing as is the work you do! These beautiful buns are so very lucky to have been rescued - and they look amazingly well considering what they've been through.
