*Special-Needs Bunnies*

Even if you can't adopt or foster a rabbit, you can help us rescue a rabbit in another way. Some of our rabbits here at the Burrow Inn are considered 'Special-Needs bunnies' and will require medical attention for the rest of their lives. These bunnies have proven time and time again that they want to be alive. Many times, these bunnies were placed on the euthanaisa list at the local shelter and rescued at the 11th hour because of that "special spark" in their personality that said..."I want to live". Although many are not available for adoption at this time, most of them do need medical sponsors to help the Burrow Inn pay for their care. They rely on people like you to help support 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.


Update on Maya

September, 2008

We discovered a jaw lump on Maya. She immediately went into surgery where Dr. Harvey removed two teeth. It's a big surgery where an antibotic bead are implanted inside the jaw. This along with having some teeth pulled and puss cleaned out of the poclets can be very painful. I am happy to say that Maya is recovering nicely at home. She lives with three other special needs rabbits and they are all taking very good care of her.


Bonding with Maya

Updated: November 2007

I decided to try to introduce Maya to my trio of boys, Sweet Pea, Benjamin and Rudy. To give you an update Sweet Pea, Rudy, and Benjamin are special needs rabbits with neurological problems. Which in this case is probably a good thing as Maya also has neurological problems and doesn't have good balance. Maya is a bit defensive and she makes it clear that she wants to be a diva in this group. The boys are so gentle and kind and have never shown aggression during the intoduction. They only wanted to be friends with Maya. During the introduction, I kept telling Maya that this is what Valentine (the previous bunny that was in the group who went to the rainbow bridge) wanted... was for her to join this group. It old her that several months ago, he left for the rainbow bridge so that there would be space for Maya in the foster home. I'm very sure it will work out...we will just give it some time for everyone to adjust.

Hi Everyone
Here are a few photo's I took of Maya. She is doing really well here and seems to be very happy.
Dr. Harvey after examining her said she had a neurological problem. She may have been hit with something or a blow on the head. to have caused this. Or it could be from E Cuniculi. As long as she doesn't get worse it should be fine. She wobbles to keep her balance but other then that is fine. We love her dearly. :)

 Hello Everyone! My name is Maya and I came into the shelter with some sort of neurological problem. I pretty much had a balance problem and can't really sit up with leaning on something. I was deemed unadoptable and a volunteer was asked to see if she could find placement for me in a permanent rescue site or be euthanized. Luckily, the Burrow Inn felt compassion for me and offered me a space in their home.

Now I'm in my forever home and forever safe.
