10 bunnies dumped by side of road in Bedford, rescued by police
BEDFORD - Police chased down and captured a group of 10 rabbits who'd been dumped by the side of Route 101 on Tuesday after receiving a call from a member of the public.
The rabbits were taken to the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire where they are getting ready for adoption.
The League says the rabbits appear to be friendly and in good health. They join another 12 rabbits already at the shelter looking for good homes.
“The new rabbits will be evaluated medically and will be spayed/neutered before they become available for adoption, but we have 12 very nice rabbits that are available for adoption immediately, and would make wonderful companion pets,” said Monica Zulauf, the League's president and CEO.
Animal lovers who aren't in a position to adopt can still help the rabbits by donating online or dropping off donation of Timothy hay, Blue Seal Bunny 16 pellets, litter boxes and rabbit toys. The League is open for adoption on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
