On the surface, LMRR looks like a paradise for our fluffy, furry friends.  Their website is impressive and professional.   If you perform a google search on LMRR and you will find no less than 50 polished donation sites to raise funds and increase donations. 
Although the founding date of LMRR is subject to debate, Corson states more often than not that LMRR was established in January, 2000 when she was 18/19 years of age.

'Kristie Corson has been a rabbit advocate for 10 years. It started when she bought a bunny from a pet store, only to bring it home and watch it die the next day."I thought it was my fault, she said. I decided to do some research to see what I did wrong. After her research, Krisitie began taking in more and more rabbits.'
(http://www.examiner.com/tampa-pet-services-in-tampa-bay/for-one-florida-rescue-organization-easter-is-a-bad-hare-day Published: April 6, 2009)

'In reality, Kris Corson started out as a rabbit breeder.  Back in April, 2000 she started bragging about a pet store that sold "mixed breed rabbits and told you theywere mixed breed".  She was adamant about being able to breed, even mixed breeds.   She then started to work at the pet store. A few rabbits came in ill with coccidi. She took them on, part of them died. 
Dec 22, 2000 in the time line, she stopped breeding and began "rescueing". The problem was, she was taking in rabbits at an alarming rate. (On 7/9, 2000, she had 26 rabbits, on 12/22, she had 65, it went up from there.)'

Christine had been collecting donations for her 'rescue' during those three years.  She even stated that LMRR was a 501c3, non-profit organization.  I witnessed her raise thousands of dollars and I watched her family & volunteers pay for the rabbits food & supplies - she rarely helped pay for anything.  Where did those donation funds go?  Where is the documentation?  If I were in Vegas, I'd bet it all that those donations paid for her lifestyle and the books for LMRR during that time are non-existant.  

She hates breeders, so why...
Better Business Bureau Information:  
Business Contact and Profile Name: Little Miracles Rabbit Rescue

BBB Accreditation: This company is not a BBB Accredited business.

July 24th the NJ SPCA arrived at the Corson Residence for further investigation. After the investigation, Judy, Christine's mother, called for help last minute and asked everyone/anyone to take as many buns as possible.  People needed to be cautious because there was pasturella and EC present.

"kris blew it. many of them are going to be euthenized and or are very sick.many of them. she lied to us. and the poor bunnies are getting to suffer for it....i am ashamed of kris"

She claimed to be "moving", made up floor plans, and begged for money to help pay for moving in. Her floor plans didn't include enough places for the rabbits to exercise. The rabbits were to be caged most of the time. I was told to shut up when I mentioned it, that SHE could do quality and quantity just fine. 

She has always asked for money, and always defended her right to take on as many rabbits as she pleased, claiming they were all "okay". She has claimed to have 20-25 adoptions happening per week, yet the numbers of rabbits of the rabbits there don't drop. 

Some of you will remember that Kris left last year for Florida to try and make money to help the rescue's bills. Those bills remain sky high...

Just last year, she was trying to get a new chinchilla because she knew she could sell the babies, and then was talking about how her new chinchilla had given birth. (But she wasn't home, her mom was!)  She was trying to figure out all the right ways of getting her Akita listed as a "service dog" so he could fly with her on a plane on another board. (((ROR REDACTED)))

Things started to fall apart for LMRR when that happened.  What did the founder & president do?  She simply abandonded them. After she moved to Florida LMRR finally allowed people to come help.  What they found was this...

3-4 rooms in the home, & an outdoor shed FULL of rabbits.  The headcount was right around 350+ bunnies. Rabbits in tiny stacked cages that had been there over a year. The bunnies had chewed their litter boxes until they were nothing but slabs in the bottom of the wire bottomed cage. Any plastic food dishes were the same. The cages hadn't been cleaned in around two months.
The "sick room" contained the sickest rabbits. Bunnies with head tilt, bunnies sneazing blood, sneazing and infected goopy eyes.  Urine was everywhere.

In addition to the rabbits, there were the family pets - who had fleas.  In the middle of summer you had to wear long clothes and a bottle of flea spray was kept by the steps for everyone to spray themselves with when they walked in the door.

After dealing with Kristie personally, I have found her to be volitale and erratic in her rthought process.  The pathological lies, the deception, the manipulation, the con. She is cruel. Name-calling. Shouting. Out-of-control rage. Accusations of what I haveand have not done for her. Assaults on my character. Disparaging remarks. Outright slander. Saying horrible things about me to everyone who would listen. It only got worse with time.

AUTHOR: Spinach - (USA)

Little Miracles Rabbit Rescue
2308 Auburn Ave
Atco, NJ 08004
(Township of Waterford, Camden County)

Continuation sheet for inspection conducted on July 24,
2012 by Linda Frese and Renee Cirillo, New Jersey Department of Health, and
James Perry, Camden County Department of Health.

Section 8:23A             Deficiency

1.2(a)                         Facility is in substantial non-compliance with the provisions of N.J.A.C. 8:23A 1 through 13.

1.2(b)                         A certificate of local health inspection was not prominently displayed at the facility.

1.2(c)                         The back area of the small animal room is
currently under construction and outdoor enclosures are being
installed. Plans must be submitted to the local health authority for
review and approval for both indoor and outdoor renovations and
improvements before construction and operation begins. A schematic
showing the layout and operation of the ventilation system used for the
isolation room must also be submitted in the plans to the local health
authority.  The ventilation in an   isolation room must exhaust directly
to the outdoors and must not mix with the air of the general

1.3(a)                         The layout of the
caging in the main rabbit room creates a nuisance.  Some of the storage
items and cages along the outside walls in this room designated as the
projects, are in close proximity to the wooden rabbit enclosures in
the center of the room designated as the condos, restricting movement
of staff during the cleaning process. A cage on the floor, in the corner
of the isolation room containing an animal named Bertucci, was made
inaccessible due to the                     storage of cages, carriers,
and boxes stacked over 6 feet high on top of his cage.  Hindering
immediate access to animals in cages constitutes a nuisance.

1.3(c)                         Food and hay is stored in large uncovered containers unprotected from contamination.

A bin containing alfalfa was marked with a sign that said Do Not   
Use and was stored with the pelleted food and hay that is used on a
daily basis.  Food waste that is deemed
to be contaminated or otherwise unusable must be removed and disposed of.

The facility had no hot water available at the time of inspection and
the gas was said to be turned off since Friday.  The gas company, South
Jersey Gas, was contacted by NJDOH staff and   the company confirmed
that the gas supply was shut off to that address, but not due to
construction or repair of any gas lines as stated by facility
management.  The reason for the gas shut off by the company was not
disclosed due to privacy protection reasons.

The clothes dryer exhaust does not appear to be vented to the outdoors
and an accumulation of lint was found around the dryer, on the floors,
walls, and on the supplies kept on the shelf next to the dryer.  The
electric outlet above the dryer also contained an
                                  accumulation of lint and cob webs
posing an electrical fire hazard.

Vegetation is overgrown in the
back of the building with wild plant growth approximately 3 feet
tall.  Premises shall remain free of accumulations of trash and the
overgrowth of vegetation up to the             property line or within
20 feet of the facility.

for 1.4 (c)           Although
the air conditioning unit was not working properly at the (not a
deficiency)  at time of this inspection, the exhaust fans continued to
work properly and the indoor temperature readings varied between 77
degrees and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.  The outdoor ambient temperature
readings were 97 degrees Fahrenheit. 
Animals housed at the facility did not appear to be in distress from heat at the time of this inspection.

Lighting in most areas of the facility was insufficiently distributed
to            permit routine inspection and cleaning during the entire
working period.  Most of the cages against the walls in all rooms were
dark and inspectors were unable to view inside the enclosures without
the use of a flashlight.

1.4(f)                          All
interior building surfaces must be impervious to moisture and readily
cleaned.  The wood behind the metal cages in the back of the small
animal room is not impervious and is stained with urine.

The floors in the isolation room are stained and are not impervious to moisture. The floor in
office area and the main access area between the main rabbit room and
the small animal room contains carpeting.  The carpet behind and around
the desk had numerous rabbit droppings on it and large water type
stains.  This room smelled of a sour, possibly vomit type odor.  Animals
not be permitted on surfaces that are not impervious and
easily cleaned and                                  disinfected. 
Carpeting used in animal enclosures must be removed and replaced with
new carpeting when wet or contaminated with excreta, or when a different
animal is placed in the enclosure.  Carpeting is not impervious to
moisture and cannot be readily cleaned and disinfected.

Some base edges of the exterior wall that meet the floor are exposed concrete block and are not impervious to moisture.

Outdoor enclosures are being erected that consist of sand as flooring
material. Surfaces of outdoor enclosures shall be constructed and
maintained so that they are impervious to   moisture and may be readily
cleaned and disinfected; run off from outdoor enclosures must be
properly disposed of as required by the municipal sewerage authority. 

Some animal crates and cages are stacked, but are not designed for this
purpose.  Debris and waste from upper cages falls into the cages
below.  Cages and crates must not be
stacked one on top    of the
other unless suitable support structures and barriers are used.  The
supports must be able to hold the weight of the uppe cage and prevent
the upper cage from resting on the lower cage.  Barriers must be used
between the upper and lower cage to prevent contamination of the lower
cage from debris and waste from the upper cage.

enclosures are not maintained in good repair. The wooden painted cages
designated as the condos have chewed and worn surfaces and are unable
to be properly cleaned and   disinfected.  Wooden cages in the front of
the main rabbit room are extensively saturated with urine and so
severely chewed that they can no longer be cleaned, disinfected, or
deodorized.  These cages must be removed from the facility.

Animals are unable to remain clean and dry due to the excessive amount
of excreta in their primary enclosures.

Animals are rotated to a playpen during the cleaning process.  At the
time of this inspection, the playpen contained an accumulation of
excrement and debris from other animals.  This
playpen was not
cleaned and disinfected between inhabitants.  All enclosures,
                                  carriers, and holding pens or runs
must be cleaned and disinfected before another animal is placed in them.

Hay used as food for the rabbits and pellet type food is not discarded
and replaced on a daily basis as required.  Pellet type food is only
given every other day.

1.7(b)                         Food,
particularly hay, is placed in the litter boxes for the rabbits to eat.
This hay is contaminated with excreta and is not discarded  and replaced
on a daily basis as required in 1.7 (a) above.  Other food placed on
the floor of enclosures is also contaminated with excreta and needs to
be removed and replaced on a daily basis.

Hay used as food for the rabbits is placed inside the litter boxes and
quickly becomes contaminated by excreta.  Containers of food shall be
accessible to animals and shall be located so as to minimize
contamination by excreta. 

1.7(e)                         Feeding pans are not cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis as required.

Water bottles are not cleaned on a daily basis.  The bottles are topped
up with water when they become less than half full.  Receptacles for
water must be cleaned daily.

Excreta is not removed from primary enclosures often enough to prevent
contamination of the animals contained therein, and to control odors. 
At the time of inspection,
enclosures contained an excessive amount of excreta and odors were uncontrolled due to the amount of
and feces in each primary enclosure, including urine and feces
saturated wood pellets used as litter in litter receptacles.

are not removed from enclosures during the cleaning process.  At the
time of inspection, cleaning fluids were poured into the enclosures
containing rabbits, for the purpose of allowing the cleaning fluid to
soak to remove caked on waste materials. 
                                   Cleaning staff sprayed cleaning
solutions and vacuumed enclosures while the animals remained in the

1.8(b)                         Primary enclosures are not cleaned often enough to prevent an accumulation
debris and excreta.  At the time of this inspection, there was an
excessive amount of excreta and debris on cage floors and resting

1.8(c)                         Cages and hard surfaced
pens are not cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis. Floors are swept
and occasionally wet mopped but are not disinfected on a daily basis. 
All floors, animal enclosures and other pens or holding areas must be
cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis.  Urine encrusted stains in
primary enclosures and litter receptacles must be thoroughly scrubbed to
remove the stains before the final disinfection process.

All interior surfaces throughout the entire facility were covered in
dust, dirt and debris and not kept clean.  All surfaces, including the
area where cleaning supplies are stored and where hay and feed is
dispensed must be kept free of an accumulation of dust, dirt and
                           debris.  Cobwebs, dirt and debris must be
removed from all areas, including ceilings, walls, shelves, electric
outlets, lighting fixtures, stored caging, carriers, etc.  Areas around
sinks, wash basins,      counter tops, refrigerators, food preparation
areas, and the washer and dryer area must be scrubbed clean and kept in
good repair.  Items creating clutter must be either removed or properly
                stored to prevent nuisances and to facilitate proper
cleaning throughout the facility. 
Areas around primary enclosures
where urine, feces, and debris accumulate must be thoroughly scrubbed
to remove the dried, encrusted urine stains and cleaned and disinfected
on a daily basis.

1.9(a)                         Records must be
made available regarding the treatment of animals at the facility, such
as daily medical logs indicating the type of treatment provided and the
duration of treatment.   Evidence of veterinary examinations and site
visits with  documented findings must also be made available to
inspectors.  These records are required to document compliance with
the provisions of this act. 

A rabbit named Dante was brought into the facility on 4/18/12 with a
severe leg injury.  The leg was splinted by the shelter president on the
day of arrival, but records show that this animal was not seen by a
veterinarian until 5/11/12.  There was no evidence
                                  produced at the time of this
inspection that showed the rabbit was provided with at least prompt,
basic veterinary care as required.  This rabbit was not at the facility
on the date of this inspection. 

Multiple items, including a dishwasher was stored in the isolation room
at the time of this inspection. A refrigerator used to store medications
for use in the isolation room was blocked by 2 large rolling storage

The isolation room is not to be used for any purpose
other than the segregation of animals with signs of communicable
disease.  All items that are being stored in the isolation room must be
removed, cleaned and disinfected, or disposed of if the item can not be
and appropriately stored elsewhere to prevent contamination.

that were not exhibiting or being treated for signs of          
communicable disease were housed in the isolation room at the time of
this inspection.  This included wild rabbits that had been raised by a
surrogate mother and were isolated due to stress; a               
rabbit named Allyson that was isolated due to pregnancy;   Bertucci,
isolated for a bite wound; Lennox, isolated for bad teeth; and a rabbit
brought to the facility for boarding with no name or cage card.  There
were no daily treatment logs or other records showing that animals
housed in the isolation room were being treated for a communicable

If animals need to be segregated for reasons other than communicable
they must be housed in a different area of the shelter that meets the
needs of the animals, such as a quite area to provide relief from
stress.  This would also include animals that are brought into the
shelter and are being observed for a period of time before being placed
with the general population, but are not currently exhibiting signs of
communicable disease.

1.10(a)1.                    Stray animals
are accepted into the facility although the facility is not licensed as a
pound and the shelter is not contracted with or authorized by any New
Jersey municipality to accept and impound stray animals.  Any animal
brought to the facility that is known to be or suspected to be a stray
animal must not be accepted into the facility, but must be turned over
to the contracting animal impoundment facility for the municipality
where the animal was found. 

Wild rabbits were found at the
facility at the time of this inspection.  Wild animals must be turned
over to a wildlife rehabilitator currently licensed in New Jersey by the
New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.

People bringing
animals to the facility are ordered to sign an owner surrender form even
when the person bringing the animal into the facility states that they
are not the owner of the animal and the animal was found as a stray. 
One example is a rabbit named Princess, 8 weeks old,
which arrived at the facility on 6/19/12, ID#PR061912.  This practice of falsifying documents must
cease immediately and all stray animals must be handled as stated  above.

Some animals housed at the facility did not have proper records at the
time of this inspection.  A cage card on a cage that was empty, but had
not been cleaned, showed that Aerie, ID number 5/9/12, was adopted on
5/19/12. This animal was said to be owned by the
                            facility president, but when questioned, the
name of the animal as   stated on the cage card was unknown and no
records were found for this animal.  Inspectors were told that several
animals marked as adopted on the cage card were actually owned by the
facility president.
 Animals that are said to have been born at the facility are recorded as stray on the animals records.

animals housed at the shelter must have proper records indicating the
date the animal arrived, description of the animal, breed,age, and sex;
name of the owner or person from whom the animal was acquired, and the
final disposition of the animal when the animal dies or otherwise leaves
the facility.
