A couple dozen fuzzy bunnies are ready for new homes after they were rescued from a pet shop earlier this week.

Animal Care and Control took 23 bunnies from a pet shop in San Francisco’s Mission District Wednesday.

“It wasn’t a matter of hoarding, abuse or neglect,” said ACC spokesperson Deb Campbell, who wouldn’t identify the shop. The owners just didn’t know that selling rabbits in the City was illegal.

The shop was cited for a misdemeanor violation of city health code, Campbell said.
 
The healthy bunnies were taken to the Mission District animal shelter and will be put up for adoption this weekend, according to the ACC website. Spayed females will go for $70 and neutered males for $60.

San Francisco's Animal Welfare Commission is considering banning sales of all small animals and birds in the City.
