The Mission of Luv-N-Bunns is achieved through our goals:

  • Rescue abandoned rabbits from high kill shelters and hoarding situations.
  • Provide necessary veterinary care for domestic rabbits including spay/neuter surgery.
  • Find nurturing foster homes that will provide food, shelter and unconditional love.
  • Find forever homes for each and every rabbit that we rescue.
  • Provide education and pet rabbit awareness.

 
We educate the public in the importance of neutering and spaying in order to reduce the ever-growing population of unwanted rabbits. We spread awareness that rabbits make wonderful pets which deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Since our inception in 2007, we have accomplished our mission by saving the lives of almost 1,000 abandoned rabbits. However, there is a never-ending abundance of rabbits that need our help.

Together we can accomplish our mission… Our passion… To save and protect innocent lives!

Below are some of our latest Facebook updates:

Luv-N-Bunns

Rescue and placement for abandoned bunnies in the Philadelphia area. We take in rabbits who are no longer wanted, have been abandoned, and/or have been abused. Once cleared by our vet, we have them neutered/spayed and find new, loving homes for each. In addition, we host various events to educate people about rabbits and their needs.

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Hiya, everyone! Jasper Jellybean here. I have to admit, it took some coaxing from Ma this morning to get me to hop onto her laptop. I was right in the middle of having a binky party! Even though I live in a nice, cozy house, I like to get in some extra exercise to help me stay warm in this freezing winter weather. Either that, or I was hoping my performance would charm Ma so much that she'd give me an extra treat. You decide. 😉

But I am here now, and I have a super fun topic to chat about today : toys! A lot of you suggested this : Donna Saul and Jill Hambleton here, and mtrolene and rikkiford on Instagram. (Did you know LNB is on Instagram, too? Check us out - @luvnbunns!)

As it so happens, I am an expert in the toy department. My toy box is literally overflowing. That's one of the best parts about being a rabbit : you totally get spoiled. Show of paws from all the bunns out there, who else agrees? Some of my personal favorite things to play with include slinkies (but only when closely supervised to make sure I don't get tangled up in it!), stacking cups (sometimes I toss them around the room and others I use them to play hide-and-seek with a few pellets), and blocks that are built into mazes I can run through! My awesome Auntie bought me a set of animal friends that I like a lot, too - they are really bath toys meant for a young human, but they double as entertainment for me, too. An important note : when buying any kind of plastic toy for your bunny, make sure it is hard enough that your rabbit won't bite off and eat any small pieces. Some of us are little stinkers when it comes to things like that. I mean, not that I'd know about that firsthand or anything. I've just heard it floating around the rumor mill.

Ahem.

Now, as is often the case, sometimes it's actually the handmade toys that bunns like best. Have some cardboard boxes around the house? Cut an entrance in one side, an exit in the other, and maybe a window or two in the sides, and voila! Your rabbit has a fun place to hide and play! You can also use empty paper towel or toilet paper tubes (just make sure they're free from glue). I like to consider them limbo sticks and also obstacles to jump over, but some other bunnies prefer when you stick some hay inside so they can pull it out. Bonus points if it lets them make a mess all over, because obviously that is SUPER fun. And while we're talking about messes - did you know there are actually toys made of hay? I have a bungalow from Oxbow that provides lots of opportunities to play! Sometimes I nibble at it from the outside, sometimes I go in and work on my bunstruction from the inside, and sometimes it's just fun to nudge or drag it across the room.

Speaking of other things to go inside : a lot of bunnies love to have little safe spaces and hidey huts. Because I am spoiled, I have seven. My cardboard house and hay bungalow, a plastic igloo, a tunnel, a hut, and two cubes. I spend time in almost all of them every single day. Some other rabbits love wooden toys, too. I'm not allowed to have those, because I like to actually eat the wood instead of just chewing it, but if your bunny isn't a goofball, then he or she might really enjoy that option. Did you know you can even buy wooden castles, forts, and activity zones?

It's important to remember that every bunn is different and will like specific things. Is your bunn a chewer? Are you trying to protect your baseboards (and furniture ... and walls ... and ... )? Then toys they can munch on, like the ones made of hay, may be a favorite! Is your rabbit curious and inquisitive? Maybe a maze or a find-the-treat toy would be a good match. Does your bunny like to toss his or her food dish? Try the stacking cups! (I am bunn enough to admit : this recommendation comes from personal experience.)

For more information and links to buy your bunnies some cool presents, you can check out the gift guide I wrote last month. I'll link to it in the comments section.

Tell me, friends : what are some of your bunn's favorite toys?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
Jasper Jellybean

These two snow bunnies live with our president, Liz, and as you can see, they're super spoiled - just as all bunnies should be! Here's what Liz has to say :

"Avery and Ivory were both rescued from separate stray scenarios. Neither are thrilled with humans, so we introduced them to each other in 2013. The rest is history! They live happily here at my bunny ranch, loving each other and hating us, despite our best efforts to spoil them! We love them dearly, regardless."

This little cutie is Toki! He's six and a half years old and on the lookout for a new family. He recently lost his girlfriend and is lonely, so he's hoping to find a second chance at love, too. Do you have a bunn looking for a friend? If so, maybe you're just the person to help this sweet, gentle guy find his hoppiness again. Please email bunnies@luvnbunns.org for an application!
