Because rabbits don't get colds not only would they have the $80 exam fee but they would have to do multiple tests to find out what it is and it would take a few visits. I may sound heatless, but I'm not. My life is major poopoo right now and I'm just trying to survive, he picked the worst time to get sick! So I explained everything to a rescue and they are going to take him and get him the care he needs. Hopefully I'll be able to pay them back and bring him home, but IDK if theyd give him back. They were VERY understanding of my situation and are wonderful people. Please, no one rail me on vet bills being part of owning a pet and that I'm pawning him off on someone else. The 3 other humane societies I called to try and get him help have already done that. I feel like a horrendous person and that I have failed him, and I can't stop crying about my guilt and that I am going to have to let him go with them tomorrow. Right now we are losing our home and my family is being farmed out to various relatives and friends until me and my mom can get jobs (horse training just isnt cutting it for me, and jobs are IMPOSSIBLE to find around here, so sick of rejection.) and Buster was just one more thing. Thankfully there are amazing rescues out there willing to help people who get into trouble like this.
Sorry, I didn't read the above post. I think you are doing the right thing:) It's kinda like his "retirement home"
Those humane societes can be buttheads sometimes; you just want to yell at them, so I understand:)
