BENEFITING: Ohio House Rabbit Rescue Inc
EVENT DATE: Aug 30, 2014
I am going to attempt to run 100 miles in honor of this organization and its mission to help abandoned rabbits. I am a mom to 3 rabbits myself and Central Ohio desperately needs an adoption center to aid these abandoned animals.
Ohio House Rabbit Rescue is seeking the support of the community to invest in the lives of abandoned rabbits in Ohio by helping establish the Ohio House Rabbit Adoption Center.
Many rescue organizations in Ohio already have active adoption programs for dogs and cats, but these programs often exclude rabbits. Unfortunately, this means there are limited facilities for over 900 rabbits that are abandoned or offered for surrender annually in Central Ohio alone. In 2012, OHRR was contacted about approximately 200 rabbits that it was unable to assist because there was no available space.
Since its inception, Ohio House Rabbit Rescue has worked to establish a Center specifically for abandoned rabbits in the community. In order to purchase and maintain this facility along with OHRR’s current programs, OHRR determined that additional funding and community support is needed. Therefore, OHRR has initiated a Capital Campaign: Be the Voice, to strategically place the organization in a position to effectively carry out its mission and to Be the Voice for the rabbits who desperately need our help and attention.
