Rabbit Advocacy Animal Matters
Rescue work is full of challenges and heartache but to remain indifferent or turn our backs on those innocent lives in need of help is not an option for us. We’ve given a new lease on life for many little critters and for each and every one it’s been well worth it. If you know of any rabbits requiring assistance contact us @ email@example.com
We Would Have Died
I would've died that day if not for you.
I would've given up on life if not for your kind eyes.
I would've used my teeth in fear if not for your gentle hands.
I would have left this life believing that all humans don't care,
believing there is not such thing as fur that isn't matted,
skin that isn't flea bitten, good food and enough of it,
beds to sleep on, someone to love me,
to show me I deserve love just because I exist.
Your kind eyes, your loving smile, your gentle hands,
your big heart saved me.
You saved me from the terror of the shelter,
soothing away the memories of my old life.
You have taught me what it means to be loved.
I have seen you do the same for other rabbits like me.
I have heard you ask yourself in times of despair why you do it when there is no more money, no more room, no more homes.
You open your heart a little bigger, stretch the money a little tighter,
make just a little more room to save one more like me.
I tell you with the gratitude and love that shines in my eyes in the best way I know how reminding you why you go on trying:
I am the reason.
The rabbits before me are the reason, as are the ones who come after.
Our lives would've been wasted, our love never given.
We would die if not for you.
“One by One, they pass by my cage.
I once had a home, I once had a bed.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
You took me home and gave me food and a bed,
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
