Glut of Rabbits at Peninsula Humane Society

Adoption fees have been waived to deal with 58 homeless rabbits.

Let us tell you about the rabbits.

The Peninsula Humane Society is inundated with more rabbits than normal, a possible byproduct of "Easter-season impulse buys" that nonetheless must be dealt with -- hopefully with adoption.

There are 58 rabbits at the animal shelter today, according to officials, a 50 percent jump from years prior.

Usually, the shelter has about 40 rabbits by this time of year.

The excess of rabbits has led officials to waive adoption fees, meaning the bunnies can be brought home free of charge, according to authorities, who noted their concern with such a large rabbit population.

They live at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame -- for now.

Rabbits can live 10 to 12 years as pets.
