Helen Savkovic is the Office Administrator for the Richmond Animal Protection Society (RAPS).  The organization recently succeeded in achieving a ban in the sales of rabbits from pet stores in Richmond.   Helen shares her knowledge about rabbit reproduction and explains why the University of Victoria’s decision to  cull rabbits is going to result in a rabbit population explosion.  RAPS is currently working on a ban in the sales of all pets in Richmond.  Please visit the shelter to sign a petition.
