Pepsi recently awarded grants for worthy causes through their Pepsi Refresh Project. Among the recipients was the Lucky Bunny Rabbit Rescue in Murrieta, CA which was awarded 15,000 dollars to build a Bunny Bungalow. The bungalow will house abandoned and homeless rabbits that are considered suitable for work as pet-therapy bunnies.
The bungalow will be built on the grounds of the Oak Grove Center, a school in Murrieta that serves children with a variety of problems and difficulties.
In addition to the grant, the rescue needs additional materials and volunteer time.
Ray Milkey of Los Altos, CA won $1000 when the photo he entered of his two foster bunnies was chosen as the best entry for PetSource.org‘s “Cutest Baby Pet” contest. He has generously opted to give the prize money to The Rabbit Haven, the shelter where the two baby dwarf hotot rabbits, Lassen and Denali, came from. Due to the popularity of the contest, Lassen has already been adopted, and with any luck, Denali will find a forever home soon too.
