Animal Friends Presents Tahoma and Verdana


Last January, a Good Samaritan contacted Animal Friends’ Humane Investigations Department about some domesticated rabbits running in her neighborhood – some of which were being hit on the road by cars. Not knowing what else to do, she turned to Animal Friends.


When our Humane Investigations Department, along with a partner organization, visited the neighborhood they immediately saw what she meant. Nearly a dozen domesticated rabbits were scattered throughout the area. Released into the wild by their former owners to fend for themselves.

The two youngest of the rabbits – at only a few months old – were found huddled together for warmth. Barely old enough to be separated from their mother but here they were, without food, water or shelter and vulnerable to the elements.

But just in time, these two, tiny kits found the warm kennels and warm hearts of Animal Friends.

Tahoma and Verdana, as they soon would be named, received much-needed care and were placed in a loving foster home. Soon they would be healthy and strong enough to be adopted.

It’s for animals like Verdana and Tahoma that we won’t give up the fight for a better future for the pets in our region. That’s why we continue to think outside the cage. Each year we spay/neuter more than 10,000 pets to prevent unwanted animals from going to shelters – or worse. 

Through rescue, adoption, spay/neuter and outreach, we’re building a community that values pets. We’re working to end the sad cycle of abuse, overpopulation and unnecessary euthanasia.

You can make a difference in the lives of pets in our region with a Sarris candy purchase. With you, we can continue this critical, lifesaving work.

  1. Glad you got them safe. I trapped my 2 pets rabbits 2 years ago from outside as well. It's a shame people would throw them outside.
