DISCLAIMER: BUNNIES MATTER RESCUE is run by Dave Schweiger – BUNNIES MATTER IN VEGAS TOO is run by Stacey Taylor. While Stacey and I no longer rescue together, the bunny rescue videos from 2018 and earlier were when I rescued with Stacey under her rescue BMIVT.
Education and changing the many poorly written animal (bunny) laws in Las Vegas and around the country is the key to help to solve this growing problem. We have helped change the bunny spay/neuter laws in the City of Las Vegas and on March 2, 2021, the City of Henderson is looking to adopt the same spay and neuter laws that have been approved in both the City and County of Las Vegas.
Below are links to Las Vegas dumpsite bunny rescue efforts to help raise awareness of this growing bunny problem in Las Vegas.
Thanks to all our members and volunteers who not only help the bunnies but are also helping to spread the word and raise awareness. This video in February of 2017 shows the 3 largest dumpsites in Las Vegas. ALL THREE VEGAS BUNNY DUMPSITES have since been cleared by several bunny rescue groups working together to save them all!
