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.

๐Ÿฐ$5 FRIDAY - PORKY ๐Ÿฐ

It was a little over a week ago today that this little bunny was left off at a Brooklyn animal control center in a cardboard box with a severely injured right eye. A lot has happened in just one week!
From the point that we received the urgent request for help, we had a transport volunteer recruited for the very next day, and a vet appointment lined up at Radnor for the following day.

Porky underwent surgery this past Monday to have what remained of his right eye removed and was discharged on Tuesday to his foster home with a slight fever and a hopeful prognosis. Given the extent of the infection, we're not quite out of the woods yet but are optimistic that Porky will make a full recovery. He's receiving twice daily pain and antibiotic medications in his foster home, in addition to all the head pets and love that time will afford.

The expenses associated with Porky's enucleation surgery and associated treatments are already significant, and we would greatly appreciate any small donation you are able to contribute to help us support the cost of his care. Thank you for cheering this little Pork Pie on with your love and support. ๐Ÿฅงโค๏ธ

LNB alum Toby has a recommendation for all his fellow bunns out there: find yourself a human who will get you a special rabbit-sized (and rabbit-safe!) cake for your adoptiversary. And maybe also one that lets you have the whole sofa to flop on after the celebration has tuckered you out? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿฅณ

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Good morning, friends! How's everyone doing today? I am feeling extra hoppy, because Ma told me lots of you were asking about me at Northeast Bunfest this past Saturday. You sure do know how to make a bunn feel special. ๐Ÿ˜˜ A HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who helped make Bunfest such a success - the speakers, vendors, volunteers, and everyone who attended! I hope you all had a wonderful time, and that you were able to buy some (aka LOTS) of goodies to spoil both your rabbits and yourselves! Did you know that's a rule of bunnydom? Perhaps rule #1, in fact. Spoiling your furry family members is a MUST.

Now, speaking of rules ... it has been a while since we've last done a trivia version of BCC, so I thought today would be a good time to ask some questions all about rabbit care rules. Please post your thoughts in the comments section, and I will be back next Wednesday to share the answers.

#1: Do rabbits need any vaccinations?
#2: When should you find a rabbit-savvy vet (and also an emergency rabbit-savvy vet) for your bunn(s)? And how often should a bunny see a vet?
#3: What is the difference between binkying, periscoping, and flopping?
#4: What should a bunny's diet be comprised of?
#5: Why is it so important to brush/groom your rabbits when they're shedding so profusely?

I am looking forward to reading your replies!

Until next time...

Nose boops and binkies,

TAKE ME HOME TUESDAY

Meet Moon (formally known as Umbreon Moonlight)! This little guy is one of the friendliest bunnies you'll ever meet - which is truly amazing, because his start to life was really tough. He was found as a stray, and when he got to us at LNB, he had a severe case of mites, as well as an infection in both ears and one of his eyes. It was a months-long recovery for this sweet boy, but he is now 100% healthy, hoppy, and ready to find his forever home.

All our adoption center volunteers agree - Moon is a gem! He can often be found poking his nose through his condo bars, eager for attention (and head rubs!) from any and every human who walks by. Binkies and snuggles are both on his agenda, and he sure does love his salads. This bunn is so full of joy! Now he just needs a person to share that with. Could that be you? If so, email us at bunnies@luvnbunns.org. Moon is waiting for you, and he promises to be a light in your life as twinkly as all the stars in the sky!

Hi, everyone. We wanted to make you aware that RHDV2 has just been confirmed in Cape May County, New Jersey. Please, please, please - if you haven't gotten your bunnies vaccinated yet, now is the time, as the virus is closer to our area than ever before.

As a reminder, RHDV2 (Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus 2) is a highly contagious and fatal virus that affects both domestic and wild rabbits. This is a "sticky" virus that can live for months outside of a host, and it spreads very easily - through contact with a sick rabbit or anything it has touched, and it can also be transferred on items such as shoes, clothing, other animals' paws, and even the hay or produce bunnies eat, if it's grown in an outbreak area. The current US outbreak began in March 2020, has impacted several states, and is now within our tri-state area.

Biosecurity is important, but the single best thing you can do to keep your bunn(s) safe is get them vaccinated. The Medgene vaccine is a two-dose series, likely followed by an annual booster. Below is a link to all the vets who have the vaccine. Again, please get your rabbits vaccinated as soon as possible.
