The Story

In early June 2017, this rabbit was found starving to death, loaded with ear mites. The finder brought rabbit to the Brookhaven Animal Shelter. The rabbit was in G.I. stasis, not eating or pooping. The shelter contacted a volunteer with the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group, who recommended immediate veterinary care.  This rabbit, whom we've named Ashley in honor of the shelter director, was in emergency care for 4 days. Ashley is so thin, her back bone is prominent. We took her into our foster care as soon as she was released from the emergency vet.  She is emaciated, anemic... she is fighting for her life.

Ashley is now living with an incredibly loving foster family, chomping on some good crunchy greens, resting on a soft blanket, enjoying a hay and alfalfa-filled litter pan. She is now a Long Island Rescue bun and this baby will not ever be left to starve or be attacked by parasites again.  But her struggle is far from over.

Please donate and share to help Ashley have a chance at life.  She is on multiple medications and supplements to combat her parasite infestation, malnutrition, liver damage and host of other issues caused by human neglect and abuse.  We need your help to give Ashley the best chance for survival.

We are so very sorry to report that Ashley died last night.  The trauma to her body from the neglect before she came into our care was just too great.  Her temperature plummeted to 93 degrees.  She wouldn't eat.  She was limp.  Ashley passed away in the arms of one of our loving volunteers.  She was surrounded by lots of love and care for the last week of her life. 

We are so very grateful for your generous donations on Ashley's behalf.  We will use them to pay off her medical bills.  Any additional money will go toward medical bills for our other foster and sanctuary rabbits.  We will continue to accept donations in Ashley's honor.

Ashley suffered.  But she didn't have to.  We will continue to work tirelessly so no other rabbits have to suffer because of human neglect and abuse.  Please, if you are interested in how you can help our efforts, email us: [email protected]
