More Info

Dear friends, animal lovers, bunny lovers...

I am asking everyone who can donate to help save a bunny that means so much to our rescue to please donate to her medical expenses. Dame Daphne Fuzzywhatsit came into foster care in upstate New York on April 7. She traveled to Ithaca New York after being pulled from the West Haven shelter in Connecticut by a fellow bunny lover. Dame Daphne went from being abandoned in a dresser drawer in a dumpster, to living in a shelter temporarily, to sleeping in a hotel with this bunny lover, to becoming the mascot for the House Rabbit Rescue Society table at the Cornell event. She impressed rescuers by how well she handled being around so many new people, despite her history of neglect.

Dame Daphne Fuzzywhasit had a respiratory infection which cleared with treatment but still had reduced exercise tolerance. She was to be spayed May 24 but her foster momma requested an x-ray done first to ensure her heart and lungs looked normal and she was overall a healthy rabbit. 

Unfortunately for Dame Daphne Fuzzywhatsit, the x-ray revealed a large thymoma in her chest; compressing her lungs and trachea. If left untreated, she will eventually go into heart failure and/or suffocate. 

Despite her diagnosis, Dame Daphne Fuzzywhatsit does not act as if she is ill, rather she begs for food, attention, and loves her life. She is so happy in her foster home, almost as if she knows she is forever safe with the rescue. 

We would like to give her a couple more years to experience love, life, and overall happiness... something she unfortunately never had prior to being rescued. In order for us to help Dame Daphne, she will need  a diagnostic/mapping CT scan and several radiation treatments to shrink the tumor. The estimate for treatments came to about $2000, which we do not currently have. We trust in Cornell Companion Animal Hospital to guide us in making the right decisions for the bunny. Please help us give her a fighting chance, and donate to her medical expenses.

Please note that there is no donation too small. Every bit helps when it comes to saving lives. Remember there are reputable animal rescuers out there that live to save animals such as Dame Daphne Fuzzywhatsit. Your donation means everything to us. Thank you so much for taking the time to read our big beautiful girl's story, and please share it if you can.

Thank you.

Update #3

Thank you everyone for the kind words to our rescue in the loss of Dame Daphne! Unfortunately, our rescue is desperately trying to pay for the remainder of her $1500 bill so we can attend to the other bunnies we have in need, along with all of number of constant dumped pets that need to be spayed and neutered. No amount is too small. If you cannot donate please share. We have so many bunnies that desperately need us due to their humans failing them and we need the help from the community to keep up with this. We honestly love our bunnies so much and we thank you from the bottom of our bunz for giving us the means to help them. We love you! Thank you!

It is with a heavy heart I announce that Daphne has lost her battle with cancer and went to heaven last night. Thank you to everyone who donated and supported our journey to getting her better. Thank you to her foster mother, Davida, for doing everything in her power to show Dame Daphne what it is to feel loved and cared for. Please say a prayer she makes it to the rainbow bridge. We love you Daphne <3
