Georgia HRS to be Featured on Animal House TV
Georgia House Rabbit Society’s (GHRS) Rabbit Center, Georgia’s only dedicated facility for rescued domestic house rabbits has been chosen by Animal House TV to be featured on one of their first six episodes. Similar in concept to “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” this TV show works with communities to build new or renovated facilities for local animal shelters in need. “Animal House is a reality show concept that will make a difference for thousands of animals and numerous communities” says Rebecca A. Rodriguez, Creator of Animal House. The plans are for this show to be filmed in Marietta sometime in late fall of this year.
Both Rodriguez and Alycia Barlow-Hadfield, Animal House Producer, made this thrilling and surprise announcement via Skype to the membership of GHRS on Sunday, June 8th at 3:30 pm at their 10th annual BunnyFest celebration. Chapter Managers Ronda Churchwell, Nancy McConville and Edie Sayeg all agree “This is like winning a bunny lottery, there just are no words to express our joy at being chosen for this show; it is a huge game changer for GHRS and the awareness it will bring to the needs of domestic house rabbits both locally and nationally!”
“Animal House” is a family friendly, inspirational and uplifting show that will help thousands of animals and the thousands of people who care for them. By providing a new or renovated building as well as assistance in obtaining program grants, training and supplies, “Animal House” will elevate the efforts of many struggling animal shelters, allowing them to provide better care and opportunities for the animals in their care.
Georgia House Rabbit Society is volunteer based, nonprofit rabbit rescue organization serving the metro Atlanta area and beyond, and the Georgia chapter of House Rabbit Society. Since their formation in 1998, they have rescued over 2500 domesticated rabbits in need. In 2010 they opened the Rabbit Center in Marietta, Georgia, the only rabbit specific shelter in Georgia and one of only a few like it in the country. The Rabbit Center serves multiple purposes: housing for rescued rabbits, onsite educational classes and tours, and services for adopters including boarding, grooming and quality rabbit supplies.
