Officer Allyson Halm, head of the New Canaan Police Department’s Animal Control section, said she picked up the one-year-old female bunny on Oct. 1 on Lincoln Drive. 

The animal was “found hiding behind a resident’s garbage cans, thin and matted,” Halm said.

On Sunday, Animal Control Officer Jillian Bosch brought the bunny to the Blessing of the Animals at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. A pet reception followed the special service. 

The rabbit will become available for adoption at the end of this week, and authorities are seeking a family that has experience with the animals.

Those interested should contact Animal Control at 203-594-3510.
