Rabbits may be the luckiest animals on earth because they have four lucky rabbit’s feet, but sometimes being lucky for them just means escaping death and living to see another day.
Earlier this month, a male, brown-haired rabbit was brought to pet rescue and animal shelter San Antonio Pets Alive! (SAPA) with a broken hind leg and protruding bone. Staff rushed the rabbit into surgery where they removed its injured leg and foot. The injury, according to SAPA, was possibly caused by an animal attack.
SAPA reports the three-legged rabbit is recovering nicely. He's friendly, playful, and happily hopping around despite his missing leg. Perhaps that's why they now call him "Hoppy."
Of course, nobody's quite lucky enough to dodge medical expenses. In turn, SAPA is asking for donations to help cover the cost of care and surgery for Hoppy. They have set $500 as their goal, a small price for giving this little “Easter Bunny” a second chance at life. Donate online at razoo.com/story/Easter-Bunny-Amputee.
For those interested in adopting this lucky rabbit, please come to the Paul Jolly Center at 210 Tuleta Dr., across from the Zoo, and you can bring Hoppy home just in time for Easter.
