Rescuing Mimi – A Rabbit Rescue Story

Mimi the French LopBy: Jodi Aker

I am a huge animal lover and have wanted a lop-eared bunny forever. As I had no bunny knowledge and have two very spoiled cats, I never thought it a good thing to actually get a bunny. That all changed last spring.

I am involved in TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) of feral cats. One Sunday last spring I was returning a feral cat that had been spayed to her colony. As I carried the trap up to the door of the caretaker, I noticed a large hutch outside. As I approached the hutch, I saw a bunny sitting on wire that was so filled with feces and urine, the poor thing was sitting in it.  She had an old, rusty feeder filled with pellets and a dirty dog dish for water. She appeared to be terrified of me so I couldn’t get a good look at her.

The $7.50 Rabbit That Changed My Life – Baskets for Bunnies Story

flopsy from baskets for bunniesBy: Gretta Parker

I was born to be Flopsy’s mom. I did not know that until a rainy Sunday afternoon on September 26th, 2010. I had stayed up late the night before, watching the 11pm news. They did a report on the amount of rabbits the local shelter had due to bunnies bought for Easter then abandoned when they become harder to care for. New to the area, I looked up the address; I discovered the shelter was nearby. I decided to go the next day and make a donation to help the former Easter bunnies.

Living with Bunnies Offers a Daily Occasion for Experiencing Awe

Freya the House BunnyBy Sarah Kleeb

I find that people who do not have the honor and joy of living with house rabbits (hereafter referred to exclusively as “bunnies”) often have difficulty understanding why those of us who do have such privileges are so emphatic about our bunny bliss.  There is just something about bunnies, I’m not sure how to put my finger on it, but there is something there that is really unique, really special.  I’m hoping this article will help me figure out exactly what that is, and that will also create a space for others to reflect on this as well.

By Aundrea Hudgens

We met Hammie at a rabbit adoption event in a local pet food store. He was a tiny little guy, a non-descript grey and brown with white feet.  Sadly, his mother had been dumped at a local beach with several other bunnies. Kind people found and transported them to the shelter.
