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!!!

Bugz – A bunny with a lot of “mite”

Bugz was found running loose on a Delray Golf Course. Golfers reported him romping on the green for over 4 months.  When Bugz was finally caught, he was covered in mites from his ears to his toes to his tail.  We took him to the vet and he was infested with 4 different types of mites.  He was covered in them so badly that he had to be quarantined at Lantana/Atlantis Animal Hospital for a week.  These pictures were taken a few days after treatment.  You can imagine how bad it was.  All the mites responded well to the Revolution treatment and he is now in his tender loving foster home.    We are so glad to have been able to rescue him because this sweet poor boy was certainly suffering.

Simba’s Pride – Four Weeks Old

The bunnies are just too cute for words.  They hop, they binky, and they poop a lot! 🙂  They have not even thought about the idea of going potty in the litter box.  But that is okay, they get to use their cuteness card on this one!  They ventured outside to play in their “Bunny Bungalow”.  They loved binking in the grass and digging in the dirt.   They have weaned themselves and are getting full bellies from eating alfalfa hay and pellets.  I can’t believe they are four weeks old already!

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. 

RIP Simba

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I am writing this post.  Little Simba did not make it through her surgery.  She was strong through the surgery right up until the end.  Dr. Love was able to put the pins in place and was finishing the surgery when her little heart stopped beating.  Thank you to each and eveyone of you who supported Simba with your thoughts, support, and donations.  It is because of people like each and everyone of you make Luv A Bun possible.  RIP Simba

Luv A Bun is so happy to announce that we were granted our 501(c)3 tax exempt status.  We are now an official charity registered with the IRS.  YEAH!!!! We worked very hard on the application – lots and lots of paper work!!!  A great big thank you to Luv- N- Bunns Rabbit Rescue in PA. for their guidance and assistance with completing our application.  (too funny that we nearly have the same name and aren’t affiliated with one another. We discovered each other when they began receiving some emails that were intended for me LOL)
