ย 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 youโ€™d like to help!

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.

Hi Everybun! This is Susie here - I recently joined the LNB Board of Directors earlier this year, and am excited to get to work in my new role as foster coordinator.

We are looking for foster volunteers to join our network of families that provide care and shelter for the bunnies that we take in to the rescue. You can make a difference from the comfort of your own home! Now is a great time to FOSTER A BUNNY!!

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Hello there, everyone, and happy autumn to bunn and all! I am here today with a very important #BSA (Bunny Service Announcement). Now that the weather is cooling down a bit, you might be tempted to take your rabbit(s) outdoors to get some fresh air and sunlight. But take it from me : this is NOT something you should do, and for quite a few reasons.

- You have heard me say before that us bunns are prey animals. And let's face it, there can be a lot of predators outside: hawks, crows, foxes, raccoons, even some dogs. You humans are fast, to be sure, but sometimes these predators can be even quicker and will get to a bunny before you can do anything to prevent it.

- Weed killers and pesticides can be toxic when ingested. This is also important to note if you ever feed your bunn anything that has been grown in your yard. Please, please, please be certain that whatever you bring in from outside has not been treated or sprayed with anything. And, of course, make sure to keep rabbits away from areas where these chemicals have been applied.

- Us domestic bunns are not the same as our wild counterparts. I mean, sure, every rabbit in the world is adorable (that's the first rule of bunnydom, of course), but there are so many differences between us and the cottontails you might see hopping across your lawn. They are equipped to live outside. We are not. We would much rather be indoors with you! We are social animals who enjoy being part of the family. And where better to get that interaction with our humans than inside a home we all share? Or, well, inside a home that the bunnies are in charge of and the humans just live in ... but I digress. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

- Extreme temperatures are not good for us. That's not an issue during the days right now, but Ma tells me the temperatures have already been dipping down pretty low at night. I know this is true because there are extra blankets around the house the last couple weeks, like this super adorable one Ma got for her birthday earlier this month. Us bunns do not like freezing weather, and especially super hot and humid weather. A temperature controlled home is always better!

- Some of you might have heard of RHDV2. It is a very contagious disease that only affects rabbits. I am so sad to say that there has been an outbreak of RHDV2 in some of the southwestern states of the U.S. this year. Thankfully there are no cases in our area right now, but because this disease can spread easily (and from wild bunns to domestic ones), the number one thing you can do to protect your bunnies is to keep them indoors. If you would like more information on RHDV and other ways you can keep your rabbits safe from it, please check out the House Rabbit Society's website. They have a whole section dedicated to this.

- And finally, let's end on a hoppier note. It is SO much easier to spoil your bunns when they are indoors with you, and is there any greater joy in life than spoiling your furry friend(s)? I think not.

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,

A kind person reached out to us, offering to donate this hutch. Interested? Please email social@luvnbunns.org, and we'll forward your information along. And just a note - as always, we recommend that domestic bunns be kept indoors at all times, so this would need to be a home base for your rabbit(s) inside, not outside, and they would need plenty of exercise time to run and play.

Meet Hannah! This sweet girl is hoping to hop into fall with a forever family of her very own. Not only is this cutie filled with energy, but she also loves to play with her toys and snuggle. Sheโ€™d even be willing to challenge you to a contest to see who can jump higher (though letโ€™s be honest, sheโ€™ll probably win). Interested in adding Hannah to your family? Email bunnies@luvnbunns.org for an adoption application!
