Winter was brought into the Chatham animal shelter as a stray at the end of July by compassionate people who were able to capture her as she roamed freely about a Chatham neighborhood.
Many people do not realize that domesticated rabbits are very unsuited to life outdoors and often succumb to predators, parasites and injuries.
Often, setting them free is a death sentence for these social and intelligent animals.
Winter herself was plagued with over a hundred tiny ticks and covered in fleas.
She also suffered from a serious eye infection.
Staff members spent a month and a half looking after Winter until she was strong and healthy enough to be spayed.
She is currently sporting a very elegant bunny donut, the equivalent of a dog or cat cone, as she is recovering from her surgery and will be heading to her forever home in a few days.
We wish her many happy zoomies and binkies at her new home!
