Poor Mariska was found dragging her leg, thin, dehydrated, and dirty in a field in Taylorsville Indiana. She was very lucky she didn't starve or get eaten by a predator. Our rescue took her in and vetted her the next day. While we don't know what trauma or illness caused her inability to use one rear leg and general muscle wasting, special recovery foster care allowed Mariska to really bloom! She became stronger and stronger over weeks, and now can hop again and get in a litterbox :D Mariska hops all over her nice big pen living space now that she's feeling so much better. Mariska may have some issues with her back leg over time, she hops a bit crooked which adds to her special charm, AND she has graduated to adoptable with appropriate medical care and support.

Mariska is spayed and has awesome litterbox habits provided she is not around other rabbits =:3. She is incredibly sweet, loves treatos (her foster mom calls them cookies!) and is beginning to appreciate being petted. Given how thin she was when she arrived, Mariska is a bit enthusiastic at food time which is easily managed.

Mariska will thrive in a home where she will be the only rabbit. She would be a lovely addition to a family who will cherish her and celebrate her victory over illness and being stray. Are you Mariska’s family?
