About Bunnies in Need
No rabbit or rat should have to suffer or be euthanized because of the financial hardships of their owners or rescue organization. BIN will strive to obtain the funding that will allow needed medical treatments to be provided.
Education about the proper diet, housing, and care of companion rabbits and rats is also an important part of BIN’s mission. Rabbits and rats who are appropriately cared for will suffer fewer injuries and illnesses, thus reducing the need for medical care.
Most of all, it is BIN’s mission to help companion rabbits and rats have the opportunity to live long, happy and healthy lives.
The story behind BIN was when I got Benji [a bunny] as a rescue, he had an issue with his eye but it had never been looked after. It turned out that he had EC and lost his right eye. But, the surgery cost $1300.00. Something I did not have. So, I met someone online and we started raising funds for Benji and then passed whatever donations were left over to the next bunny that needed help. That is how BIN started.Then after being with Holly Gold on Pet Rat Lovers, I ended up fostering two rats, Wales and Axel. It seemed just right to open BIN up to rats as well because they have so many similar traits as rabbits (such as their teeth always growing).I now have 2 more rats that I adopted from the humane society, Boots and Sox!We have helped over 100 bunnies and I am looking forward to spreading that help to rats!
