, you know I was pretty ticked off right? I wondered if I should report that particular shelter when I was at the peak of my pissivity (on the ride home with my new bun), but then I figured ... who'd care? It's just a bunny -- that's the attitude of these folks out here which is why they didn't bother to even get a $1.00 bag of carrots to feed poor Harmony. I mean geez, you learn that much just from watching Bugs Bunny cartoons!! LOL!
Bottom line, they didn't wanna put forth any expense, no matter how small, on Harmony because frankly she was not supposed to live as far as they were concerned. This is a shelter that will kill animals who are not adopted after a certain period of time, and they just fed her any old thing because in their minds no one on earth was coming for that bunny.
I tell ya, it truly was by chance that I happened to go to that shelter the other day. I never would've even considered them while searching for a companion bun, because I KNOW they have nothing but cats and dogs. Divine Intervention I tell ya ... God was truly looking out for Miss Harmony -- small but mighty *Diva*. :-)
Girl let me tell ya, you think that giving buns for Beagle practice is bad? I just recently heard a rescue that got bunnies out of a hoarding situation (the compulsive collecting of animals), and when one of the shelter workers was talking with friend about not knowing where they were going to find enough fosterers/permanent homes for the bunnies, the friend replied, "just sell them to a soup kitchen!"
You KNOW the friend was from the South and truly meant it as a viable option. She was not at all trying to be insulting, but as a country girl, born and raised, rabbits were bred for meat and fur ... PERIOD!
