Lyssa loves animals of all varieties and works as an educator of exotics, including reptiles and kangaroos!

Since then, she has become passionate about helping rabbits just like hers. She now lives in Edmonton and studies Dentistry at the University of Alberta, but frequently travels to her hometown of Lethbridge.

April Reece

April lives in Taber and has been passionate about rabbits her entire life. Her love for our long-eared friends started when she was just 6 years old, when she got her first pet bunny, Thumper. April has passed that love for rabbits on to her own daughter, who was the one to introduce the foster program to April.
April spends her days as a healthcare aide, and her nights caring for personal and rescue rabbits!
