News ImageAugust 23, 2016  OC Animal Care's Rabbitat Grand Opening!During Saturday’s Rabbitat Grand Opening everyone one was having a bunny good time! Attendees got to hop on over and check out our rabbit’s new kennels, new enrichment toys and equipment, exercise pens and new herb gardens! Guests were treated to some snacks and refreshments as they visited the Rabbitat and learned more about rabbits. A couple of our rabbits even found some bunny to love and were adopted into a furever home. We want to give a special thanks to the hard work of staff and volunteers, Don Manthey, Cindy and Ken Widdall for all of their hard work and dedication that went into the building of our Rabbitat area. We would also like to thank our community members that came out to support our new Rabbitat!
