32 Rabbits Rescued From "Unsanitary" Conditions In Lawrence

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The MSPCA-Angell says it pulled 32 rabbits out of a Lawrence home on Monday, just in time for Easter.

The MSPCA said the rabbits condition had become "unsanitary," and their dietary needs weren't being met.

"Everyone knows rabbits can reproduce very quickly, and I think this is a case where people got overwhelmed with the numbers," said the MSPCA's Mike Keiley.

The rabbits are New Zealand-Dutch mixes. The same owner also gave up seven chickens from the same home. The rabbits range in age between five weeks to about a year old.

They have been moved to the MSPCA's adoption centers in Methuen, Centerville, and Boston.

The MSPCA is calling on members of the community to adopt the animals to friendly homes.
