Saving the Santee Alley Rabbits

NEWS ABOUT OUR CURRENT EFFORTS:

For the past 16 months Bunny World Foundation (BWF) has been helping to put an end to the illegal sale of underage animals in Downtown Los Angeles' Santee Alley.  We have taken in over 500 un-weaned baby rabbits, provided them with medical care and found them homes. This requires the hand-feeding and medicating of these rabbits; spaying and neutering as they mature and housing them until they are adopted by loving families. BWF is collaborating with LAPD and Los Angeles Animal Control in an effort to shut down Santee Alley's illegal animal sales.  Recently, LAPD requested guidelines from BWF that define "Animal Cruelty".  These guidelines have helped facilitate the arrest and implementation of existing laws to punish these criminal acts.

Unfortunately, a raid on illegal animal sales in Santee Alley's Fashion District which led to ten felony arrests failed because of overcrowding in Los Angeles' jail system.  Those charged have avoided time behind bars and may not ever show up for prosecution.  Bail was set at $20,000, and in Los Angeles those with bails under $25,000 are now released on their own recognizance because of overcrowded jails. Those arrested were released without them having to make bail, and often without any legitimate ID being shown.

The Mission of Bunny World Foundation (BWF) is to rescue neglected, abandoned domestic baby rabbits, to provide them with medical care, and to find permanent, loving homes for them. We also wish to educate the public about the proper care of these intelligent, social, complex, loving and magical animals, to help reduce rabbit overpopulation and abandonment, and to eradicate the illegal sales of under aged baby bunnies in Santee Alley and other parts of Los Angeles before expanding our mission globally. Since its inception from August, 2008, BWF has rescued 475 baby bunnies from Santee Alley Los Angeles Fashion District. Bunny World Foundation is a NON-PROFIT 501 (c) 3, NO-KILL animal welfare organization based in Los Angeles, California.
