Introducing Olive Oyl!

oliveoylAfter a very long and exceptionally quiet winter, we are happy to introduce our latest Lauren’s Wing recipient and our very first rabbit!

“Popeye” is a beautiful 6 week old Giant Flemish bunny who arrived at Action for Animals as an owner surrender due to an ongoing serious eye issue. Popeye’s story is long and just a bit complicated. Several consultations were made with different local veterinarians formulating the best way to treat Popeye’s eye. Somewhere along the way, it was discovered that Popeye was actually a female bunny so the name “Olive Oyl” seems a better fit now! Olive Oyl was taken for eye surgery early May for it appeared eye removal was needed. After prepping for the surgery, the decision was made to forego the surgery and try one new medication in a last resort effort to save her eye. We are so excited to report that the last treatment plan was indeed successful! Lauren’s Wing is very grateful we were able to fund all the veterinary consultations and medical expenses for Olive Oyl’s month long journey of treatments. We are also grateful for the patient and loving care provided to Olive Oyl from the wonderful staff at AFA and shelter manager Lu.

She is strong to the finish (now weighing in at 7.2 lbs…….. really does love her spinach…….. she is Olive Oyl, one happy, healthy, and lucky bunny!

P.S. Olive Oyl is expected to grow to 22lbs as an adult! Stop by Action for Animals to visit Olive Oyl and her bunny friends.
