So. San Francisco/Peninsula Rabbit Foster Home

(Formerly House Rabbit Society-San Francisco/Peninsula Chapter)



*Overlooked Treasure*

Sometimes a rabbit arrives in foster care, who is wonderful in so many ways. However, this bunny seems to wait forever to choose his or her new owner. We know they are waiting for that very special person who is just right for them. Please, come meet our "Overlooked Treasures" and perhaps you'll be that special "one" for one of them.

Again, if you love rabbits, but are not able to adopt or foster, sponsoring a rabbit is another compassionate and helpful way to save lives.

Many of you may remember Bruno the white rabbit who was rescued off of San Bruno mountain last year. He had been out there for over three months. At the time we rescued him he had warts on his neck. It turneed out to be the Papilloma virus from being bitten by ticks. Wild rabbits can sluff off the virus but domestic rabbits don't. The warts were removed with one wart continuing to grow back. He had surgery again two weeks ago and the wart was biopsied. The biopsie report confirmed that he has cancer.

On Wed. Dr. Harvery at Chabot will perform surgery on Bruno on Wed. to remove his ear. I'm sure he will do fine. He is a survior thats for sure. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Bruno was rescued last summer in 2008 from San Bruno mountain. He had been living up there for three months. Whle on the mountain he was bitten by ticks and developed masses on his neck. These wart like masses are caused by ticks giving him the Papillomas virus. Several of the masses were removed at the time he was neutered. One of the large masses return a few months later and was removed.

Several weeks ago the mass grew back. He was being treat by Dr. Carloynn Harvey at Chabot Veterinary Clinic with an antibotic and a paste like herb that we applied to the growth twice a day. Bruno did very well during these treatments. Today, June 19, 2009, he was examined again by Dr. Harvey. The growth has not improved and Bruno will have to have another surgery as well as have the growth biopsy. There is a chance that the growth can progress to squamous cell carcinoma.

The surgery will run about $400.00 which will include the biopsy. Bruno, is asking if anyone can help with a donation to pay for his surgery.
