The Mission of Luv-N-Bunns:

  • Rescue domestic rabbits from abandoned stray situations, kill shelters, private relinquishments and hoarding cases
  • Provide nurturing foster homes that will ensure proper care, shelter and love for each animal in our foster network
  • Provide necessary veterinary care including spay/neuter surgery
  • Screen applications to find perfect forever homes for each rabbit that we rescue
  • Host outreach events in the community to provide education and information on the proper care of domestic rabbits

 

We stress the importance of neutering and spaying all rabbits to reduce the ever-growing population of unwanted rabbits and to prevent highly prevalent reproductive cancers in unfixed rabbits. Since our inception in 2007, we have accomplished our mission by saving the lives of almost 2,000 abandoned rabbits. However, the over-abundance of unwanted domestic rabbits keeps us working toward our goals, year after year.

Together we can accomplish our mission. Reach out today if you’d like to help!

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.

Here at LNB we have had a baby boom 😍. We rescued a couple of bunns that had babies in December and now we are in need of foster homes! The young bunnies are a little less than 2 months old and will need to be in foster homes for another 2-4 months before they can be fixed. If you are interested in fostering, please email bunnies@luvnbunns.org for foster application. These babies are not up for adoption yet but it is possible to foster to adopt !

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Greetings and salutations, friends, and Hoppy Tuesday to you! Who's excited for the snowstorm heading our way tomorrow? Show of paws! I like to look outside as the flakes fall down and blanket the ground, and I'm also a pretty big fan of watching the news coverage on television, so I'm looking forward to a cozy day at home with lots of cuddles and yummy food to eat. Related : did you know it's mandatory to feed your bunny a treat on a snow day?

(Fellow bunns, you may thank me for this PSA.)

I know some of you humans aren't thrilled about the wintry weather, though, especially if you have to drive in it. And I totally get how that might be scary for you, because us rabbits have things we're scared of, too. In fact, I had an encounter this past weekend with a very frightening sound that kind of threw me into a tizzy. I know this is probably hard to believe, but I am actually kind of a sensitive bunn. New voices sometimes make me scamper underneath a chair or behind my condo until I've determined the person is safe, and I do NOT enjoy fireworks. Every Fourth of July and New Year's Eve, Ma has to turn the TV up extra loud in an attempt to drown out all the fireworks outside.

Last Saturday, I also had to remind her that I really, really, really do not like the sound of paper being ripped. Even when it's on a different floor of the house, nowhere near me. I was chillaxin' when it happened, sprawled out on the carpet and enjoying some head pets, but boy, did I jump up quickly when I heard that noise! I thumped. Dashed behind my condo. Ran back to Ma. Thumped again. Darted behind my condo. Sprinted back. Took off behind my condo a third time. Back and forth. Back and forth. It made my Ma really sad, because she could tell I was in a frenzy and I didn't listen very well when she tried to calm me down. No worries : all it took was a half hour and a bonus treat (dried strawberry pieces for the win!) for me to go back to my usual hoppy self.

It got my Ma thinking, though, about the other noises that frighten me. For example, I don't like the sound of bags crinkling. Outdoor tree work has been known to bother me if it's close by, and I don't especially enjoy hearing dogs bark loudly if there's ever one at the vet's office while I am there. Sometimes the sound of the garage door opening also puts me on high alert, until I realize it's a friendly face who's waiting to greet me. Ma figures this probably has something to do with whatever my life was like before LNB swooped in to save me. It's been almost four and a half years now since I was adopted. I love my forever home and know I'm safe here, know how much I'm adored here, but I guess some old memories just stick, even for us bunns. I thought I'd share that as a reminder : rabbits are fragile and sensitive little loves. Because we are prey animals, we are sometimes on high alert. That's why it takes some of us awhile to learn how to trust, and why it's super important to always be cognizant (I am bunn enough to admit that Ma helped me with that big word) of how your rabbit is feeling and reacting to things. Now, that said ... those moments of being startled by noises have become much, much fewer for me over the years. I spend 99% of my time binkying around the house, hopping 'til I flop, getting into mischief, and generally having a grand 'ole time.

How about your bunn(s)? Are there any particular noises that spook them?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
