Our bunny friends lent a hoppy hand in building the bunny barn 🙂
Despite what the pet trade industry portrays, rabbits are not pets to be locked up in cages. Pet store rabbit cages are too small even for the smallest of rabbits. By the time you set up a litter box and bowls for food and water, there isn’t any room for them to move around freely. We suggest using dog exercise pens, extra large dog crate, or building a bunny condo. All are very roomy and can be set up in different shapes. You can line the bottom of the cage with coroplast for easy cleaning (found at Home Depot or any sign store). The ultimate goal for every house bunny is to leave the cage open and allow them free roam. With the cage door open they can go back to their cage when they want to eat, use litter box or just want some quiet time. Here are examples of some cages we suggest…
Luv A Bun needs a building to house our current and future rescued rabbits. We are in a time of need and are asking for donations so we can continue to help more bunnies. So hear it goes…I am sending a big “SHOUT OUT” to all you bunny advocates out there, please help us be the voice for all those bunnies that need rescued from so many different situations – death row, from neglectful homes, and the abandoned bunnies who are all too often released into the wild. They all are in need of our help and LAB needs this structure to continue to rescue and help more rabbits. If you would like to be a part of making this happen, we would so appreciate it. Any amount is appreciated, it all adds up and gets us closer to our goal! This bunneh wabbit says “Thank You”!
One evening I received a phone call from a polite and well mannered older gentleman expressing his interest in adopting a pair of rabbits. We talked bunny talk for a while and he told me all about the cage he was going to custom build and how excited he was to adopt a pair of rabbits. When I did the home visit, I was pleasantly surprised by their new home, it wasn’t a cage at all but a castle, hand crafted by Bill himself. The bunnies had their own air conditioned garage along with their 5 X 5 cage with a large rabbit pen attached to it. These were going to be some happy bunnies! I received an email from his wife today informing me that, sadly, Bill’s health is failing him and he can not take care of the bunnies any longer. Winter and Autumn’s adoption fee is waived and all their supplies and toys along with their custom made cage goes with them. We want to find these girls a new home so Bill can concentrate on getting better. If you are interested in this cute pair, please visit our fill out an application. Hope to hear from you soon! Update…Winter and Autumn have found a new home!!!
These 5 little cuties are the newest additions to Luv A Bun. Meet the gang: Korra, Aang, Sokka, Toph,Katara. They are precious, docile, and cuddly and can’t wait to meet their furever family. They are being fostered at Pets Supply Plus on Lantana and Jog. Stop in to see them and also maybe do some shopping. Pet stores that support rescues instead of mills deserve lots of business!!! Pet Supply Plus is taking care of them, however, the entire adoption process is through Luv A Bun Rabbit Rescue, so please contact us for adoption information.
Spaying or neutering your bunny is important for many reasons. First, it will prevent the birth of more bunnies – which there is such and overabundance one to which we certainly do not need to contribute. Second, it is important for health reasons. Female rabbits who are not spayed are most certainly going to get cancer. The third reason is it keeps the males from spraying and marking their territory. It also helps the females with their moody hormonal cycles.
Many people are realizing that spaying or neutering your pet bunny is a priority and we have received many requests for information on low-cost clinics. Below is a list of low-cost clinics where you can get your bunny fixed.
Royal Palm Beach
Luv A Pet Surgical Mash Unit is a non-profit mobile spay and neuter clinic that services dogs, cats and rabbits. The best way to make an appointment with Luv A Pet is through contacting Barbara through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information please visit their website at www.luvapet.net.

Tri-County Animal Hospital is a bit north but when the other clinics are full it may be worth the drive if you need to get your bunny fixed quickly. The price is $180 which is more than the low cost clinics but certainly lower than most vet clinics.

A week after Easter, the candy will be forgotten. Sadly, so will the rabbit. Thousands of bunnies are bought for children at Easter only to find two months later, the shelters and rescues are inundated with people wanting to get “rid” of their Easter Bunny. The novelty of the cute bunny in the basket has gone and the love and devotion the children professed , sadly, has all worn away. Rabbits require and deserve love and proper care just like any other pet. Please encourage parents, relatives, and friends to buy chocolate or toy bunnies to decorate their Easter baskets instead of a real bunny. www.makeminechocolate.org
Even though rabbits make great pets, anyone considering adopting a rabbit should do their research first. Make sure you have the time and energy to commit to their care. Rabbits are not “low maintenance” pets. They live an average of 10-12 years and are fragile animals who need special care and have special veterinary needs. They require a lot of socialization and cannot be confined to a cage all time.
Rabbits may not grow up to be the cute and cuddly creatures portrayed on greeting cards and are not always child-friendly pets. They tend to become easily frightened when picked up or restrained and may scratch or bite. Their instinct is to run away or bite when approached suddenly or when confronted by loud noises. Young children may find it difficult to interact with a rabbit and become disappointed when they realize they cannot hold and cuddle their new furry friend.
If after doing your research you decide that you can make the lifetime commitment to the care and maintenance of a bunny, please fill out an adoption application and…we look forward to hearing from you!
If you decide that a rabbit is not the right pet for you and your family, please make this Easter a chocolate Easter!
We just love hoppy endings!! Here is an update from Peter and his new family. Also, here is a picture of another bunny who found his perfect hoppy ending – Zuko and his new friend, Rifka.
“Peter asked me to write to you and tell you that he is doing great! He wants to say hi to you and to the other bunnies waiting to be adopted! He says that it is great and don’t be scared! People will do whatever you want them to when you are this cute!! haha He loves his new cage, and likes to go exploring in the living room. He refuses to touch the linoleum, so he won’t go in the kitchen or hallway, haha. He is a carpet only bunny. He loooves his head and chin petted so much he comes right up to us and asks for lovin all of the time. Out of the cage he has been sooo good, and isn’t scared hardly at all. He lays down next to us on the floor and will almost go to sleep he gets so relaxed. It is so cute!”
Zuko has found his new forever friend with this special young lady, Rifka.
