WINCHESTER, Ore. -- An owner surrendered 24 rabbits to Saving Grace Pet Adoption Center on Friday, shelter officials said.

The owner took great care of the rabbits, they said, but she had to give them up due to her own health issues.

The rabbits range in age from newborn to three years old. Officials said two of the rabbits came with newborn litters.

Before last week, officials said they were only caring for three rabbits. With the new group, they said they now have 27 rabbits they need to find homes for.

"(We want) quick adoption," Executive Director Wendy Kang said. "We would love to get all of these adopted and in homes quickly.”

Shelter officials said they have reduced rabbit adoption fees to $20. They are also waving the adoption fee for teachers in Douglas County who want a rabbit as a class pet.

Officials said all the rabbits will be up for adoption as soon as they get spayed or neutered.
