10th Leap a Huge Success
On August 29th, 1998, House Rabbit Society celebrated the organization's 10th anniversary with the 10th Leap fundraising dinner and silent auction. Over 120 people were in attendance. The event brought in much needed funds to help us achieve our dream of establishing a centralized shelter/adoption center, education center and national office.

Warm Weather Warning: Fly Strike
As the weather warms, flies can strike and kill a healthy animal who has temporary loose stools, but at particular risk are aging, disabled, long-haired or overweight rabbits who are not able to clean themselves. Within 24 hours, rabbits can enter a terminal state of shock due to maggot infestation. Moisture, warmth, and odor attract flies. If open sores are present, or if thick fur is dampened with urine or feces, flies will head toward these warm incubation areas to lay their eggs. The chances are greater if the rabbit is outside, but it only takes one fly indoors to do the damage. Maintaining a watchful eye, keeping your bunny dry and (if neccisary) short-even-shaved are the most critical preventitive steps. More fly strike info... -- June 21, 1998

Wild Bunnies Many Not Need Your Help!
Every spring we receive desperate inquiries about "abandoned baby bunnies". Don't assume bunnies need to be rescued simply because you have not observed the mother at the nest. Wild rabbits only nurse for 5 minutes during the night. Be on the lookout for rabbit nests when you're mowing the lawn, gardening, or cleaning up the yard. If you've accidentally disturbed a nest, put the babies back, restore the fur/grass covering and leave them alone! The mother will move them to a safer area over the next 48 hours.
