"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."
