Thank Rescuers of Rabbits Thrown Out Like Garbage

Target: Caroline Yates, CEO, Mayhew Animal Home

Goal: Praise charity for rescuing and rehabilitating a family of rabbits senselessly thrown out like garbage.

A family of seven rabbits–including a mother, father and five 12-week old babies–was recently observed being dropped into a garbage bin. Luckily, observant bystanders intervened and rushed the abandoned animals to the Mayhew Animal Home in London, where they were taken in, pampered, and given medical care. When the animals are fully recovered and ready for rehoming, the animal home will work with a local rabbit rescue to find an appropriate living situation for the animals.

The Mayhew Animal Home is a charity that specifically deals with animals and pet owners in need. They provide services such as low-cost vaccinations as well as taking in and caring for neglected animals and animals surrendered by their owners. At over 130 years old, the organization has provided much-needed care for thousands of needy and neglected animals in London.

It is horrible that a family of rabbits would be neglected, let alone thrown out like garbage. As horrible as the situation is, it is heartening that organizations like the Mayhew Animal Home exist to assist in situations such as these. Show your appreciation for the Mayhew Animal Home’s intervention in the lives of these rabbits, as well as those of thousands of other animals in need over the past 130 years.


Dear Ms. Yates,

We would like to extend our thanks to the Mayhew Animal Home for taking in the family of seven rabbits that was cruelly discarded into a garbage bin in London. While it is horrific that rabbits would be neglected in such a heinous way, it’s heartening that organizations like yours are available and willing to intervene in these potentially tragic situations. We recognize that working with abandoned and neglected animals is both difficult and crucial, and we appreciate your willingness to take on this task.

Thank you for being there for animals in desperate need of not only basic needs and medical attention, but also love and kindness. Your actions have made a tangible difference in these little beings’ lives, and all who hear this story of kindness to animals will also be positively impacted. We, the undersigned, commend you for your exemplary care of these imperiled rabbits, and for the help you’ve given to thousands of other animals over the last 130 years.
