THANK YOU to everyone who made "The Bunny House" campaign a success! We were pleased to also receive some direct donations so that our total will allow us to have our down payment and handle the many fees that additionally come with property purchases. We were guaranteed bank financing if we could raise our down payment. YOU MADE THAT POSSIBLE!
Once we felt confident our campaign goal would be reached we were then able to place a bid on the property. Although other bids were also placed, ours was accepted!! We were ecstatic!
Now we have to complete several other steps such as bank appraisal, county inspection, building inspection for the loan, a request to the county for a conditional use permit on the building, and closing. Each entails a significant fee; most of which should be covered by our campaign. We ask for your continued good thoughts for success at each step.
Hopefully, all will go well and we can begin other details to make the building ready. One thing our property does not have is a laundry area so we will need a building permit to put in a stand pipe for the washing machine and a vent for the dryer. We're also hoping to have two washing machines and dryers to handle the heavy volume of laundry.
You can keep track of our progress through our website at: www.hrsmostl.org or through our newsletter site at: www.morabbit.org Anyone wanting to make future donations can make them through any Paypal button on our website or by mailing a check directly to:

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, we'll have a regular street address thanks to all you have done to help us on our way.
We'd also like to thank Crowdtilt for giving us a way to actually reach out to so many animal lovers and make this happen in such a short time. The crew at Crowdtilt has been amazing and helpful throughout our campaign so keep this venue in mind if you need to do something similar.
We truly can't thank you enough or tell you the difference your help will make to the bunnies in our care and to our rescue and educational efforts to help them.
