A wild rabbit? Try to find a wildlife rehabilitater in your area. If you don't know of one, you could try calling the local vets and asking them for advice.

Only if you happen to have a lactating mother around, and in the case of the one that was attacked by the dog it needs veterinary care.

What area are you in, I'm sure there are wildlife rehabbers there.

We are going to windsor today to give them to Hope Heaven. One of my friends suggested it. How do I tell if a bun is lactating?

Females only lactate if they have babies of their own that they are nursing.

Have you called to make sure they can accept these rabbits? Unless they're permitted, they can't, even if they rescue domestic bunnies.

I hope they make it
Do you know if they were weaned yet? Or are they still pretty young?

when you touch your buns back legs they move em and flip out right?? the one bun that got attacked ( Gus Gus) can not move back legs at all. when he crawls he drags them. the other two (Lucky and spazz) are fine i think they ate all the pellets that i put in.
