We’re up to our ears in ears!  (See our update, too.)

The House Rabbit Society of Missouri in St. Louis receives requests from nearly 40 different animal shelters asking us to take in rabbits left with them in addition to the many calls from individuals no longer able to keep their bunny.  Rabbits are the third most abandoned pet in the United States, yet very few shelters accept them and those that do are severely limited in space.  There's very little publicity about how many are euthanized or estimated to be turned loose to die.  As an all-volunteer, 501(c )3, no-kill, foster home based organization, MO HRS has been handling these calls for a huge region for the last 16 years including helping with large confiscations in cases of hoarding and abuse.   All of the bunnies here are spayed/neutered and health checked plus they receive love and good care while waiting for their forever homes.  All adopters are qualified and must go through an orientation on rabbit care as there are some serious misconceptions in the general public about rabbits which is a main reason so many are abandoned.  Done correctly, they make wonderful animal companions in the home.    We are at a point, however, when a building of our own is imperative if we are to continue our mission of helping area communities and shelters with these abandoned animals plus our continued community help with groups like Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, schools, community service, and community events.

Our initial goal is $35,000.  We've found the perfect building, but a 20% minimum down payment is required plus costs for the building inspection and bank appraisal on the property.  We've saved 10% and we are confident in our ability to make mortgage payments and still provide continuing good care for the animals we are committed to helping.  Please know that anything above $35,000 raised in this campaign will completely go towards the purchase of this building which will help make monthly payments lower.  In turn, that lets us help more animals.  On behalf of the nearly 300 bunnies in our care, we thank you.

A note to all of our previous contributors.  We are still working on getting The Bunny House ready.  We're almost there.   There have been more expenses than expected like plumbing, the roof, etc., but we've been getting everything resolved and really want to have the bunnies in their new shelter by Nov. 16. That's our targeted move date.  We've started a new, smaller Crowdtilt campaign to help achieve the final details in getting it all done. If you can help, even a little, please go to this new Crowdtilt link http://tilt.tc/FnyE    We'll have photos for you to see of the new place soon.
Thank you so much.

Thank you so much.
Just wanted to let all of our supporters know that their donations helped us to successfully get the building of our dreams.  We obtained our special users permit and closed on the property.  We're now in the process of renovations to make the building a great place for the bunny rescue and help hundreds of abandoned and surrendered bunnies find new, loving homes.  You can continue to follow us at www.hrsmostl.org and www.morabbit.org  
THANK YOU EVERYONE!!
