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!

Below are some of our latest Facebook updates:

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.

What's better than a good book and a delicious snack? These cuties have the snack part of the equation all ready to go, but now they need some awesome reading material. That's where you come in! We're collecting entries for the third volume of BUNNY TALES, and need your help to make it great. If you'd like your rabbit to be included, please email your submission (it can be your bunn's story, an anecdote, even a poem - the "pawsibilities" are endless!), along with a high quality photo, to lnbstories@gmail.com by September 28th.

Want to see some examples of what we're looking for? You're in luck, because BUNNY TALES, volume two is currently on sale for just $5! Email Melanie at melanieisu45@yahoo.com to order your copy today. Hoppy reading!

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Hiya, friends! How's everyone and everybun doing today? I want to give a shoutout to bunny bonding extraordinaire Liz for her guest post last week. I hope it was helpful! Today, we're going to chat about something else that is super helpful for us bunns : veterinary care. This is something we've talked about before here in BCC, but it's one of the most important things you humans can do for your rabbits, so I thought we'd discuss it again.

One of the first things you should do when welcoming a bunny into your home? Make sure you have a rabbit-savvy vet. There are lots of vets out there who treat our dog and cat buddies, but those who specialize in caring for us are fewer and farther between. It's really crucial that you find one - and that you do it BEFORE your bunn needs medical care, so that you're all set to go. Because here's the thing. Us bunnies are fragile animals. We are also prey animals, which means we try to hide any signs of illness or not feeling well. That means it's up to you to notice any changes in our behavior or routine that might indicate something is going on - and when that happens, you should always have a vet you can take us to for care. Little things can turn into big things when not given prompt attention. Acting quickly can save a life.

I am proof of this. My digestive system is pretty sensitive, which has meant quite a few stasis episodes over the years. I also have malocclusion in my molars, and I had surgery back in March to remove a lump that was thankfully benign. And can you even believe that last week I ended up going to the vet four times over a two day span? None of the normal things that help my stasis episodes were doing the trick, and for a bit, my breathing was heavier than normal and I was shaking. This all ended up in a middle of the night emergency vet visit Tuesday night (complete with me getting some oxygen, which scared the daylights out of Ma), a visit to my regular vet on Wednesday, ANOTHER trip to the emergency vet in the middle of the night on Wednesday, and spending all day hanging out with my friends at my regular vet's office on Thursday. The great news is that my x-rays and blood work are good, and that my phenomenal vet was able to help me feel better. The bad news is that I turned my humans into zombies for a few days, between the lack of sleep and fear.

But we are all feeling much, much better and more relaxed now, thanks to the exceptional care from my vet. She told me I'm one of their frequent flyers and that I'm a little monkey, and I mean, she's not wrong. Whether or not your bunn is a little monkey, too, it's SO, SO important that you have a rabbit-savvy vet to treat him or her. And not all vet care should be reactionary. Bunnies should see a vet annually for well checks and preventative care - more often if they have any medical issues and when they are older. Catching things early means they can be taken care of when they are still minor, instead of letting them grow into something major. And one more important reminder : YOU are your bunny's biggest advocate. Ask questions. Double check. Listen to your instinct. Make sure your bunn is getting the very best care.

Here is a list of rabbit-savvy vets in our area, in case anybun needs it : https://rabbit.org/chapters/se-pennsylvania/vetlist.html.

Tell me, friends : do you have a vet you love, like I do?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,

Happy Monday, everyone, it's Liz! We had a wonderful weekend of adoptions this past weekend with 9 bunnies hopping off to new homes. I just wanted to send a big thank you out to all of you for all the things you do, big and small, to keep this rescue hopping! Arctic, Polar, Simona, Mongo, Fudge, Luna, Piper, Thumper and Bandit say thank you as well.
We are up to 87 adoptions for 2019 and going strong 🙂

Look at these cuties! Chip was adopted from LNB earlier this year, and as you can see, he's loving life in his forever home. What's better than snuggles with a bonded buddy? Not much!
