    The last three rabbits from the confiscation are out of the shelter and in foster care with The Haven.  Out of the 116 or so rabbits (I am not sure of the exact number), we only lost one, a very sick female who died the night she was taken into the shelter.  None were euthanized.  They are all safe now, in adoptive and foster homes all around California.

    This was a massive undertaking, and The Haven got a lot of help from the community and other rescues. I saw Heather on Saturday, she is exhausted but happy that we could get them all out.  The volunteers who groomed and socialized the bunnies at the shelters, the members of the community that donated supplies and cash, the vets and vet techs who donated their time to treat and spay/neuter these rabbits, the people who did twitter, facebook, blog and media postings, the volunteers who did huge numbers of loads of soiled rabbit laundry, the list goes on and on, so many people supported these bunnies.  It was amazing to see.

    A number of these rabbits were featured at our adoption show on Saturday.  Three found new homes, many more were there just to get their nails done, their photos taken, and then go to their new foster homes.  I took over 400 photos of 19 rabbits on Saturay, a new personal best.  The rabbits are adorable, they are all tiny, with the classic round heads and tiny ears of dwarf bunnies.  Some of them are rexes, some have dutch markings, some are all white with blue or brown eyes.  They are still very skinny, even after almost 6 weeks of decent food.  All are spayed/neutered now, and ready for some TLC and then adoption into their own homes.

    The BB community has been very supportive during this rescue, your encouragement and donations helped to keep us moving forward and find ways to help the bunnies.  Thank you all for your continued interest and support.  It really means a lot to me.
