For Immediate Release: Valentine's Day 2014.
The Earthanimal Humane Education and Rescue Society (EARS) will provide life-long sanctuary relocation for at least 25 of Canmore's feral rabbits this season.
EARS and the Town of Canmore have an existing Agreement to offer the community a non-lethal alternative to trapping and killing the rabbits of Canmore. Under this agreement, EARS has already relocated over two hundred rabbits to Alberta sanctuaries.
As trapping begins again this season, we want to remind members of the community that a sanctuary option is available.
We are a volunteer- operated registered charity. All of our work is donor dependant. The associated cost of relocating, sterilizing, and providing sustainable life-time care in sanctuary is $130 per rabbit.
We are inviting the community to sponsor a bunny this Valentine's. Our sanctuary has capacity for at least 25 more rabbits.
Let's see how many arrows we can put in Cupid's quiver by next Wednesday - that's when we will provide Canmore with our capacity number in our amended proposal.
