Rabbit SOS: Brother Wolf seeks fosters, homes, and donations for 50 rescued bunnies

Brother Wolf says 50 bunnies rescued from a hoarding situation need fosters, new homes, and donations to pay for spay/neuter and care.


A Brother Wolf email says the rescue organization received a call from an Asheville woman who was trying to help a neighbor take care of some bunnies the neighbor had rescued in a neighboring county.

The neighbor said the rabbits she had rescued were escaping their hutches, and another neighbor had already shot and killed three of them.

What the Asheville woman didn't know when she offered to house the rescue rabbits is that there would be over 50 of them moving into her barn.

The woman isn't able to fed and care for 50 new additions, nor can she spring for spay/neuter surgeries to keep them from reproducing--like rabbits.

Brother Wolf is now looking for help with spay/neuter expenses, fosters, and loving forever homes--for 50 bunnies.

If you are able to foster a rescued hopper (or two), visit bwar.org/foster for more information and requirements. If you are interested in adopting, email adopt@bwar.org.

If you can’t do either but still want to help, consider purchasing some much-needed supplies so Brother Wolf can move the rabbits out of the barn and into foster homes as quickly as possible.

The organization says that while the current volunteer rescuer is doing a decent job of caring for this large number of bunnies, some are matted and the smell of urine is overwhelming--not good for the animals' health.

A link to the Brother Wolf bunny wishlist is here.

Debbie Taylor-Hamilton, Brother Wolf's resident "bunny whisperer," is fostering six rabbits already, and making room for two more. She asks for donations of fresh produce like cilantro and romaine lettuce, which can be dropped off at the Adoption Center at 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville.

At $53 each for a discounted spay/neuter with a Brother Wolf partner vet, that's $2650 to get these rabbits fixed ASAP. You can donate to a rabbit spay or neuter at bwar.org/donate.
