[Updated] Air Shaft Rabbit — saved!


[The other day]

As mentioned the other day, some residents spotted a rabbit loose in the air shaft behind some buildings on East First Street and East Second Street.

Anyway! Good news: Some residents were able to rescue the rabbit ...



... but the rabbit needs a permanent home...



Any takers? Suggestions? Let us know via the EV Grieve email... Naming rights are also available.

Thank you to everyone who offered to take in the bunny, who now has a new home and friend...

Grieve, I just e'd you, I have a friend (long-time rabbit owner and rescuer) who seriously wants Airshaft Bunny. S/he will have a good, loving home with lots of Timothy hay and kale and bananas and whatever else it is that bunnies eat! Have whoever contact me, I left you my phone # and real name (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).

Petco has an entire section for bunny rescue. I would think contacting them would make sense. (212) 358-0692

THANK YOU BUNNY RESCUERS! You are good people <3

I call my kittens bunny rabbits, so I would name this bunny Kitty. :D

This is wonderful! The rescuers are lovely human beings - and it looks like the lucky bunny already might have a new home!!!

It could be someone's missing pet? Why put it up for adoption when its owners may be looking for it?

A friend and I were going to go rescue this bunny today. I was going to take it. I have one bunny now and a huge cage. I've kept bunnies and fine bunny rescue for years.
Petco is *not* the place to go with bunnies.
I would still take this bunny if someone would tell me where to go. I live in Queens, but I can drive in tonight.

Are bunny's air rights still available?

Gojira said...

Just FYI to those who are concerned; the friend I mentioned in my first post in this thread as wanting the rabbit is the @missy kresse who posted above. The wheels are in motion; turning slowly, but hopefully I will have a positive resolution to report at some point soon, that Airshaft Bunny will have taken up residence in a large carpeted cage in Queens where s/he will be pampered on a daily basis. Fingers crossed!

Do NOT take this rabbit to Petco and certainly NOT to NYC Animal Care & Control. Much better if someone like Gojira's friend (who is experienced with rabbits) can take this little one, as bunnies need someone who knows all about their care! Rabbits are not a "starter" pet...

And of course, I am left wondering how this sweet little thing got "lost" in the first place - would think an owner might have put up signs by now.

No, but it has plenty of hare rights.

This reminds me of the conversation between the hobbits and Gloum in the Lords of the Rings flick

The carpeting has to go for the summer. It's too hot,and given how hot it already is, it has to go now..... I put in some outdoor kind of stuff that's cooler to sit on, and comfy for bunny tushie. I will go to home Depot this weekend and get some.

Gojira said...

Oh, SNAP! Great pun!

It's about a rabbit, so it should sound more like the cave scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

That rabbit is dynamite!!!

So no one has gotten back to either Gojira or myself, all day, except EV. We do not have a good feeling about this. I know the women in charge of the bunnies up at ACC, and many bunny rescue groups in the NY area. I've worked with them for years .
I don't know who these people are, and they are not responding at all, so we are calling it a day, as we do not know what else to do .
I just hope the bunny is ok.

Please let us know if missy moo gets it!!! Sounds like bunny will have a great home.

Update-- I was part of the initial rabbit rescue team. The foster mom delivered the rabbit today to a very loving EV Grieve reader with a lot of rabbit experience. It is very safe and happy.

Did anyone claim the lost cat with the white face EV posted on here a few weeks ago yet?
