50 rescued Brooklyn bunnies will be up for adoption this Saturday

Help fifty adorable bunnies get the hoppy ending they deserve this weekend.

Gowanus resident Dorota Trec had over 180 rabbits seized and rescued by the NYPD and ASPCA last March, after she stored them in abusive conditions outside a tire shop.

While hell continues to warm up a very special, very hot place for Trec (who reportedly has started another “genetic breeding program”), another group of the rescued bunnies has been nursed back to health and is ready for adoption. Thanks to the Ani-Care Animal Hospital, fifty of the furry little thumpers are ready to find new homes. At an adoption event in December 2015, 48 of 50 available bunnies were adopted.

Ready to hop on over? The ASPCA Buns N’ Roses Adoption Event will take place this Saturday from 1pm-4pm, and (if you're over the age of 21) you can choose your favorite bunny to bring home at the event. Again, there are 50, in all kinds of colors, with names like Bessie and Jasper, so... hard choices! There will also be a social media photo booth where you can snap a photo with your fuzzy new friend.

If you’re thinking about how cute it would be to have a little cottontail hopping around your bunny-proofed apartment, you can read more about bunny care here.

The adoption fee is $25 per rabbit, and includes a starter cage and water bottle. (You can fill out the adoption application ahead of time.) You'll also need to bring a government-issued photo ID and proof of residence (it can be a piece of mail with your name on it) with you to the event.
