Bunnies rescued from slaughter are now looking for a loving, forever home
How can you say no to those faces?

A number of bunnies that were heading to the slaughter house were rescued and are currently being looked after by the team at Animal Liberation Malta. These adorable floofers are now looking for a loving home!

“All of these babies were rescued from slaughter and are currently in our care,” Animal Liberation Malta shares on their Facebook page, showing photos of the adorable bunnies.

The organisation also shares the realities of a rabbit nowadays. “Did you know that at the age of 14 weeks, after spending their short, miserable existence in a wire cage, rabbits have their necks snapped and throats slit before being skinned, gutted and sold for no more than €10 each?”

“Does someone's life really have less worth than a person's taste buds? Does tradition and culture automatically deem the action of killing morally acceptable? How differently people would react if it were kittens or puppies receiving the same treatment...”

“Should anyone wish to adopt one of the white babies (9 are up for adoption. Some are pure white and some with brown noses and ears. All have been handled daily for the past 5 weeks so are very friendly and curious) then please message us.”

“Only homes where the bunnies can roam freely most of the day and be treated like a family member will be considered.”
