Despite recently taking in 104 new residents, Woodstock Farm Sanctuary just knew they couldn’t say no when a rabbit named Fred needed their help! Fred spent his life in a cage the size of a shoebox at a vet tech school. He was used as a prop for the vet techs to practice restraint techniques and injections. As the tattoo in his ear shows, he was simply known as 21M, but thanks to a student who stepped up to save him, he will spend the rest of his days in a sanctuary.
Fred arrived at Woodstock with a cage card that listed the terrible procedures he was forced to endure. At the end of the course, there was still little to no regard for Fred’s life as he was going to be sent to a meat farm to be slaughtered. After only living a shoebox-sized cage, he was never going to be given the chance to be free, live out his life, or be around other rabbits.
Fortunately, he’s now in loving care. His medical tests show that he has a parasite that attacks the brain and nervous system, but it was caught early on. He cannot be near the healthy rabbits, but luckily for him, there’s a pretty gray rabbit named Delores with the same parasite. Soon they’ll be playing and spending time together in the safety of their new home.
Woodstock Farm Sanctuary will continue updating their social media accounts with updates for those interested in Fred’s progress and journey. People can also donate to the sanctuary to help them care for not just Fred, but all the residents, especially the 104 new animals who’ve recently been saved!
