Many of our animals can live in captivity for many years. As caretakers, we need to have the necessary environment & medical attention to support their survival.

Please consider being a part of something very special.
Lend your support to these fascinating creatures.

Our Animals

Lola

Domestic Rabbits
Oryctolagus cuniculus

Lola was born at the Center in July 2017.  Her parents were dumped in a parking lot off Route 44 in Avon. Shortly after rescuing them, staff members found two tiny bunnies in their mother’s enclosure. They were raised by their mother until they had to be separated. Their parents and Lola's brother have since been adopted to good homes. Lola has sanctuary here so people can understand the importance of ample research before getting a pet!
