No Kill Lehigh Valley saves rabbit from becoming dinner!
Recently, someone posted a horrific story on our Facebook page about this cute rabbit. This person lived next door to someone who was keeping the rabbit in a birdcage on their balcony with no shelter from the elements. She watched the rabbit go through a cold winter out there and called animal control numerous times to no avail. The rabbit's owners told her they only got the rabbit so they could eventually eat it!!!!! Thanks to her persistence, the owners finally relented and told her she could find a home for the rabbit. She posted the plight of the rabbit on our Facebook page and was inundated with calls and emails! Within a day, the rabbit was in a wonderful new home. I recently contacted the new owner and she says the rabbit is very sweet despite what she endured and she is working to integrate her with the rest of her animal family! And for the first time in her life, this lovely rabbit finally has a name: Tilley.
