Three women were killed in a Katy house file yesterday that also has left animal rescuers scrambling to take care of 23 rabbits.
"URGENT HELP NEEDED: TRAGEDY LEAVES BUNNIES HOMELESS," reads the bulletin from Special Pals, a rescue organization.
Workers and firefighters saved 23 rabbits, the group said, but "Many more bunnies were lost in the fire. Special Pals is in desperate need of bunny food, fresh vegetables, fresh hay & other supplies for these little survivors."
Some of the rabbits required CPR and other care to fight smoke inhalation, the group says.
