What to do if you find wild bunnies.......
Rabbits hide their nests in plain view, often putting them in the open, sometimes in the middle of the lawn, as well as in brush piles and long grass. If you find a nest that has been disturbed, do all you can to restore and protect it. Do NOT bring it inside. If a dog has discovered the nest, keep your dog away from the area and reconstruct the nest with grasses. If need be, you can move the nest a few feet away where safer, even up to 5-6 feet away. A moved nest should always be covered with string in a tic tac toe pattern and monitored to be sure the mother found it and came back to the babies. She will scrabble away the surface area to feed her babies beneath her and then scrabble the earth, grass, leaves, back over the nest to hide it again so it’s pretty easy to see if the string has been disturbed.
NOTE: Babies should never be put back into a nest that has been flooded with water, has bugs/ants visibly crawling in and out, or if a baby has been killed and there is blood in the nest. Use common sense. Baby bunnies who have fleas are compromised and should be immediately taken to a wildlife rehabber. If this NJ list does not have a center in your county, call the closest one. They will be your best resource. Thank you for caring for our wildlife friends.
Featured Rescue......now ready for Adoption!
This little beauty was abandoned during the past harsh winter..... and she shows physical signs of the rough ordeal she had to endure. Why do people think domestic rabbits will do ok on their own? They do NOT! And it is a very cruel reality all too often.
Luckily, "Alayna" was rescued by a few very caring people who managed to catch her and bring her to safety. Although she shows physical scars, her nature and personality do not indicate a rough history. She is absolutely bubbly and loving. She melts for pets and is ever seeking attention! We will give her time to gain weight and strength prior to spaying. If you are looking for a lovable, little girl (4 lbs.), keep your eye on "Alayna"! - Update: Alayna is now 5.2 lbs, happy, healthy, spayed and ready for Adoption!
