We love Bunnies
Our interest in also saving rabbits has a big role to the Cancer Project.
Uterine adenocarcinoma is a malignant Cancer of the uterus and is the most common type of cancer seen in rabbits. Uterine cancer occurs in up to 60% of females that are greater than three years old.
Mammary cancer or mastitis is often found in rabbits with uterine cancer. Other types of cancers that rabbits are prone to are, Bladder and Pancreatic Cancer.
About 20 years ago, my late mom and I bought our first pet together, which was a bunny called Ruby. She loved this bunny dearly and had it with her everyday at home and at work in the family Supermarkets for about five years. Ruby was a domestic in-house bunny. Subsequent to my moms passing on 4th February 2018, I bought another baby bunny called Skouliki. This is the grey bunny that appears on top of this page. This bunny gave me such comfort during those very difficult days when I was grieving the loss of my mom and missing her terribly, that in some special way, I believe that my mom’s spirit was one with Skouliki.
However, very sadly Skouliki passed away in May 2019 after she was spayed, to prevent her from developing Uterine Cancer, due to kidney issues possibly caused by a parasite called E-Cuniculi (known as EC).
This broke my heart once again terribly, but through the loss of Skouliki, I met amazing people from bunny rescues, Anabel from Bunny Tales Rescue, meahni from berario bunnies and jenny from strawberry foundation and this opened my eyes to all these incredible bunny rescues that I was not aware of before.
I have subsequently adopted from bunny tales rescue, as i could not resist these cute bunnies, which are the two bunnies on the bottom of the page, Meli and panda, the projects mascots.
I have learnt a great deal more about the health of rabbits through the assistance of the Bryanston Avian Exotic Small Animal Clinic known as BAESAC and how they too are very prone to developing Cancer. This then made me realize that there was a link needed to my main project.
Seeing how these Bunny Rescues all try to assist and save bunnies (whether they are ferrets in the wild or rescued by the institutions) by having them neutered, spayed and re-homed, is amazing and I know the costs of their vet bills in respect of doing this good deed, is expensive.
It is for this reason that I want to be able to contribute towards these Institutions Vet bills and more, when possible, through the project. We have raised funds and donated towards these institutions and will continue to support their amazing work and huge hearts to save bunnies everywhere!
