THE STORY:

In February, I adopted a loving, sweet bunny from NYC Metro Rabbits (more like a puppy, because she acts like one!).

 

I fell in love with her immediately when I first visited her, returning to her everyday for the next week before bringing her home. The most sociable, adorable rabbit I've ever met, Scarlett was adopted as a baby and quickly abandoned. Her first family set her into the wild when they realized she was a larger commitment than they'd hoped for.

 

She lived in their backyard for months, only eating carrots a neighbor would feed her. That neighbor called in the rescue, and she was immediately brought to the animal hospital for rehabilitation. Emaciated to near death, but alive with fighting spirit, she recovered and was fostered by a loving home with NYC Metro Rabbits. Thankfully, she only sustained a growth defect in her front legs from the malnourishment. When deemed healthy enough for adoption, I met her, falling in love that day. I've always been an animal owner, rescuing the little angels to give them a second chance at a loving and happy life. Having planned to adopt for months, I was ready and able to financially commit to Scarlett's needs. But with a weak immune system, Scarlett caught an Upper Respiratory Infection at the PetCo she was staying at when up for adoption. It cleared up with 1 round of antibiotics, and, excited to have found my little girl, I took her home with me. But her symptoms returned a few days within her coming home, and I took her to the vet.

 

I'm happy to say that she's again a healthy little snuggle bun after months of treating her. But the URI was stubborn and cost a lot of unanticipated funds out of pocket that her Vet insurance policy won't cover (because they consider it a preexisting condition). I know that $599 isn't a lot of money to many people, but it's beyond what I can afford to pay off. Even a few dollars would be beyond generous to help me continue to provide for her. Thank you.

 

To show you how special she is: she hops on the couch every night to watch TV with me. She helps me wake up in the morning by hopping into my bed and cuddling (or sometimes zipping around my head to get me up so she can have her breakfast salad). She follows me around the apartment anywhere I go when I'm home, all because we're bonded!
