FORT MYERS, Fla.— The last of more than 40 rabbits rescued from a hoarding situation have found new homes. Lee County Domestic Animal Services’ shelter was overflowing with English Lop and Mini Lop rabbits after their owner became overwhelmed.  The rabbits were sterilized prior to adoption to prevent them from further breeding out of control. 

In the past LCDAS has had difficulty placing even one or two rabbits at a time.Gulf Coast Humane Society and Humane Society Naples took some of the bunnies but LCDAS was able to successfully place more than 20 that remained. 

Lee County Domestic Animal Services is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office off Six Mile Cypress Parkway.  Adoption hours are 11:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Saturday. For more information call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS).  Pictures of pets—dogs, cats, and even an occasional bunny—available for adoption can be viewed online at
