May’s Rabbit of the Month and Announcements
5-21-2013 Big Marigold Update: Yesterday I took Big Marigold to the vet. They did x-rays and found two large tumor masses, one in her lungs and one in her stomach. The one in the lungs made it difficult for her to breath so she was put on oxygen. She had just recently stopped eating and her activity level had slowed down. I believe she was hurting.
With her condition there is no treatment or cure. I made the decision with the vets advice to put her to sleep. Making this decision broke my heart. Big Marigold has left a deeply rooted place in my heart.
I will always remember her for her silly antics; jumping on my desk to visit me while working on the computer. Marigold will be deeply missed.

Fosters Needed: We still have an urgent need for foster people! It’s after Easter and more rabbits have already started filling up the shelters.
Have more love to give? Why not share it with a rabbit in need of a temporary place to live.
Spring is in the Air! Ready to adopt a rabbit?
Rabbit of the month:
Titan- Super Sweet Snuggle Bunny
Titan’s story: A kind citizen saw Titan thrown out of a car window and brought him to the shelter, where we first met him. He had obviously been attacked by another rabbit as his ears were missing pieces, nose had been bitten off and bite marks were on his back. He had fleas, fur mites and ticks, not to mention he was terribly fearful of people. Fortunately, Titan had no serious medical issues, no broken bones just a broken heart. He spent many months in foster care to learn that there are good people who love him. Titan has blossomed into a super sweet bunny that loves to snuggle and be held.
He was recently half neutered…the vet only found one descended testicle. Now he must go back for a second exploratory surgery to fully castrate him. This surgery will be $300. Currently, our funding has run out and we need to raise money for his second surgery. Please consider donating to Titan’s completed neuter fund, so that he may be able to find a bunny friend in the future as well as be adopted into his own loving home.
Donations to Titan can be made through www.razoo.com or by mail to Contra Costa Rabbit Rescue PO Box. 95 Martinez, CA 94553.
Be sure to specify that your donation is intended for Titan.
