More than two dozen rabbits that were rescued in Brooklyn earlier this year are now ready to find permanent homes.

Back in January, the ASPCA and NYPD saved the rabbits from a cold, squalid outdoor lot in Gowanus where they had no food and little shelter. The ASPCA said that many of the rabbits suffered from illnesses and injuries. None of them were spayed or neutered.

The ASPCA helped provide veterinary care for the rabbits, which found a temporary home at Ani-Care Animal Hospital.

"These rabbits have demonstrated an incredible level of resilience and are more than ready for the comforts of a permanent home," said Howard Lawrence, an ASPCA vice president, said in a news release. "We thank our rescue partners for helping to care for these rabbits over the past year, and we hope people will open their hearts to give them the loving, safe homes they deserve."

The adoption events take place Saturday, December 12, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Central Park Zoo entrance (Grand Army Plaza and East Drive) and in front of Staples in Union Square.

If you chose to adopt a bunny, a $25 adoption fee includes a cage and water bottle. All rabbits are spayed or neutered. Make sure to bring a photo ID and contact information for references. You must be 21 or older.
