Petco grants $35,000 to LA’s Bunny World Foundation rescue org

The all-volunteer Bunny World Foundation that finds homes for hundreds of abandoned domestic rabbits each year is set to receive a $35,000 grant from Petco’s charitable foundation Tuesday.

The check to the animal rescue organization will be presented Tuesday at Petco’s Pasadena store at 845 S. Arroyo Parkway in support of the foundation’s lifesaving work for animals in the greater Los Angeles area.

“Our investment in Bunny World Foundation is part of more than $15 million in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love, a national nonprofit organization formerly known as the Petco Foundation.

Lejla Hadzimuratovic, who founded the foundation in 2008 in Los Angeles, said the gift will help the organization during a particularly challenging time, as local shelters are overrun with bunnies who have no place to go after the spring breeding season.

“Bunny World Foundation is deeply honored to be a recipient of the funds designated to assist 700 bunnies rescued from high kill shelters in the greater Los Angeles area during winter/spring of 2022,” Hadzimuratovic said.

More information about the foundation is available at bunnyworldfoundation.org. More information about Petco Love is available at petcolove.org.
