Change Lethbridge bylaw to Allow a Legal Rabbit Rescue (Archie’s Angels Rabbit Rescue)

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

In the City of Lethbridge rabbits are still considered livestock and allows only one bunny per household. Making opening a rabbit rescue technically illegal. There has recently been an extreme increase in bunny dumps and abuse within the last year in the city. Due to the bylaw a rabbit rescue is not permitted. This needs to change, why do bunnies not get the chance of life like cats and dogs in the city? I want to open the first ever non profit rabbit rescue in Lethbridge Alberta Canada. Archie’s Angels Rabbit Rescue will be a non profit organization fully concentrated on saving the lives of dumped and or abused bunnies within the city and surrounding areas. If we can’t make this happen tons of bunnies will die. In the City of Lethbridge our winters can get as cold as minus 40 degrees Celsius. We are on the prairies where hawks, owls, coyotes and many other predators reside. Rabbits are the most misunderstood prey animals on earth. People think they can survive if you throw them outside but this is not the case. Little Lucky almost died of a sever eye infection due to a breeder carelessly throughing him outside at just 2 months old. People well give away pet bunnies on kijiji which can end up as snake food, bait for dog fighting, even as food on a human plate. THESE ARE DOMESTIC PETS!!! They are meant to be loved and cared for not tossed away like trash! Please help us fight! Help us be a voice for the voiceless!!! Support the first Lethbridge bunny rescue Archie’s Angels Rabbit Rescue! Let’s make this happen!

“Domestic rabbits are not the product of natural selection, but rather of human interference by means of breeding programs, and the product is a human-dependent animal who needs protection. It is therefore a human responsibility that these animals be cared for in a manner appropriate to their needs.
It is in the best interest of domestic rabbits to be neutered/spayed, to live in human housing where supervision and protection are provided, and to be treated for illnesses by veterinarians.
Domestic rabbits are companion animals and should be afforded at least the same individual rights, level of care, and opportunity for longevity as commonly afforded to dogs and cats who live as human companions.
Rabbits are intelligent, social animals who require mental stimulation, toys, exercise, environmental activity, and social interaction (from, as appropriate, people, other rabbits, or other animals).”
