In a release that went out Friday, San Francisco Animal Care & Control (SFACC) announced that they had just rescued 40 rabbits, "mainly underage kits," and they had done so via an individual "who advertised the sale of the rabbits for ‘meat or pets’ on Craigslist." Since the sale of rabbits is illegal in San Francisco as is the sale of most pets SFACC stepped in and seized the animals, and they've partnered with rabbit rescue organization Save a Bunny to get them adopted.
As you can see in the video below, they are quite cute.
If you're interested in adopting one, they will be available for adoption in about a month, and you can contact Save a Bunny through Facebook or by calling 415.388.2790.
Says Virginia Donohue, Executive Director of Animal Care & Control, "We’d like to encourage the community to call us to report animal neglect or abuse.” And you can do that by calling their Emergency Dispatch at 415.554.9400.
