“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace." - Dalai Lama
Tasha has a Master of Science degree in Epidemiology in the Department of Population Medicine at OVC. Her research explored rabbit-owner knowledge and considerations for rabbit ownership.
When Tasha was 15, she fell in love with her first rabbit. It is a passion of Tasha’s to promote rabbit ownership, sharing knowledge she has gained and mistakes she has learned from, in hopes of reducing relinquishment and encouraging the development of human-rabbit bonds.
Growing up, Tasha’s family had a beautiful yellow lab that lived a long, wonderful life of 14 years of age. Over her lifetime, Tasha has had 4 rabbits, 3 of which were rescues. Each rabbit has found its way into her and her family’s hearts. It always surprises them how much these little creatures impact their life in a positive and rewarding way.
