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 – 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!
