SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Around half of the 53 rabbits seized last week from a home in El Cajon, where they were being hoarded, are now available for adoption, the San Diego Humane Society announced Thursday.
The other half are receiving further medical care and evaluation before they will be available, said Humane Society President and CEO Gary Weitzman.
According to the Humane Society, its officers were called in when El Cajon police found the rabbits being kept in harsh conditions.
"Upon arrival, the rabbits were examined by our medical team," said Stephen MacKinnon, chief of humane law enforcement for the Humane Society.
"Fortunately, most were found to be in good health, despite the terrible conditions they were living in," MacKinnon said. "It's obvious that the owner cared about the animals but couldn't keep up with the care they needed, so she was grateful to receive our help."
He said the Humane Society sees that type of situation often when animal lovers become overwhelmed with an immense number of pets in their home. Because the owner was cooperative, no charges will be filed against her, according to the Humane Society, which is on track to care for 20,000 domestic and nearly 12,000 wild animals this year.
