Choose to adopt Instead of Shop

Please make adoption your option and choose to adopt instead of shop.  There are too man;y homelss bunnies needing homes.  The pet stores make it all too easy for unsuspected walk-ins to fall in love with the 4 week old babies they have for sale.  We don’t have any 4  week old babies for adoption but we surely do have  a lot of awesome bunnies who desire deserve a home of their own.

Take some time and read through the website to see if a rabbit is the right pet for you and your family.  If you feel a rabbit is the right pet for you, please fill out an applcation.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Summer Adoptions

Summertime.  The kids are out of school.  There is fun in the sun and many vacations to take.

Summertime means relaxation and memories with friends and family.  Summertime for rabbit rescues aren’t as busy.  Summer for rabbit rescues are the slow months for adoptions as people are busy planning their vacations and keeping busy with the kids home from school.  Adding a friend to the family is usually not high on the priority list.  What is quite popular during this time are surrenders.  With everyone busy they find they don’t have or want to spend the time to take care of their bunnies. So summer for us is usually slow for adoptions but high for surrenders.  We can only take a bunny if one gets adopted.  Luckily for Luv A Bun we had a very active summer despite the odds being against us 🙂  We had 15 adoptions during the summer months.  We are so fortunate that we found loving indoor homes for these 15 bunnies and in turn were able to save 15 more.  Pictured are Koko, Bob, Polo and Sammie – you lucky buns!!!

Simba’s Pride – Three Weeks Old

Simba’s Pride is just so adorable. They made their big debut with professional photographer Stacey Chen from Kiwi Photography.  She loves bunnies and loves to take their pictures.  She captured some beautiful moments of the bunnies at this tender young age.  Thank you Stacey!!! The babies are hopping about and are eating hay and pellets, but their favorite meal still comes from their mommy!  They are getting used to all the attention we dote on them and are becoming quite the personable little buns.  Whenever we walk past their cage they run up to say hello.  When we open and put our faces in, they put their paws on us and touch us with their lil’ wee whiskers.  They are just too precious. 

Happy Spring!

Penelope is sitting pretty now that she has been rescued.

Penelope was a through away bunny. No longer wanted.  No longer loved.  No longer cared for.  She was rescued off the streets.  She has received a lot of TLC and her injuries have all healed.  Sadly, her bonded mate did not survive living in the wild.  If you are considering adopting a bunny please remember that they are a ten year commitment and not a novelty in and Easter Basket.  Please read about rabbit care and behavior to see if a rabbit is the right pet for you and your family 🙂

Look at these cuties!!!

Baby BunniesAren’t they just too cute for words????  They were born in a shelter in Melbourne.  The shelter called me to see if I can take them and their mommy because they were in danger of being euthanized. Luckily they called me at just the right time as I had just had several adoptions and was able to say, “YES”, we can help.  I love when that happens!!  They are about 4 weeks old in the pictures.
