When Cottontail Cottage Rabbit Rescue asked us for help in buying a pellet stove to keep the bunnies in their shelter warm during the cold Maine winters, we looked at one another and said “Rabbit rescue? In Maine?” We’re from Maine and had never heard of Cottontail Cottage – the only rabbit rescue for whole state and other parts of New England. They didn’t have to convince us that Maine was cold in the winter; we already knew that. When we saw their pictures and learned more about their programs, we were happy to help them buy a new pellet stove. Cottontail Cottage offers lecture series, hand on learning events, open houses and helps low income rabbit owners take care of their pets.

And their bunnies are too cute. We can’t wait to visit.
