Bertha the rescue rabbit, once neglected during her first year of life, has found a new purpose in her forever home with Emily Heiderscheidt, the director of Ruby and Laurel Animal Rescue in Clinton, North Carolina. Initially brought in as a foster, Bertha was saved from a hoarding and breeding case where she lived in a bin with holes drilled in the top. Despite her rocky start, Bertha ended up being adopted by Heiderscheidt and now serves as a foster mom to other animals in their home. This special rabbit has formed strong bonds with nine cats and enjoys playing, snuggling, and grooming them.
