BEDFORD - The tortoises and the hares. A local animal shelter is pleading for homes for both.
Earlier this month, someone dumped at least 11 rabbits on the side of Route 101. They were rescued and brought to the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire to be evaluated, spayed or neutered and put up for adoption, but Maureen Prendergast, Director of Outreach & Investigations, says adopters haven't been coming around and they are running out of space. Currently, there 20 rabbits calling the ARLNH home.
Prendergast says rabbits make great companions and do very well in pairs. She says the 11 that came in are very friendly and have unique personalities.
Prendergast is also working with the Washington DC Humane Society to transport 20 red-eared sliders, which are pet water turtles, to the ARLNH. The shelter in DC doesn't have room for the turtles and is hoping to find good homes for them in New Hampshire. Prendergast says this is the first turtle transport she has ever done. She wants to have secure homes for the turtles before she commits to taking these turtles.
If you are interested in adopting a turtle or rabbit please email Maureen at email@example.com.
