A home in Phoenix, Arizona, became overrun with rabbits, prompting the owner to seek the assistance of a local animal rescue
organization, The Arizona Republic
The rescue team took discovered more than 100 of the fluffy pets, and they feared the number would continue to grow as the pregnant females began to give birth.
The homeowner had been rescuing rabbits for over 15 years, never running into into this kind of problem. She said someone entered her property and mixed the males and females together, which she had been keeping separate until now, which caused the increase in bunnies.
The little critters have been undergoing routine health assessments. All being spayed and neutered, any injured rabbits are getting the care they need. Pregnant bunnies have been put in quarantine and are receiving special treatment to make sure their little ones are born healthy.
"Our hope is that over time, the rabbits can be rehabilitated and placed into their forever homes," animal rescue director Kelly Ames told the news source.
Rescue shelters care for six to eight million pets every year, according to the Humane Society.
