An acquaintance i knew left her dwarf bunny in her apartment after being evicted. I went and got the bunny with the plan to call a local shelter. My 16 year old son , who had never bonded with any animals due to a life long sensitivity disorder and chronic pain after being hit by a car, fell in love with her. It brought him out of his shell and he now helps me care for cats at an animal shelter and he spends a lot of time with our 2 year old cattle dog. He even adopted 2 disabled dwarf hamsters from a pet store which he spends time with constantly. I am thankful for the compassion he shows and the bonds he now has with animals.
