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.

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Hiya, friends! Jasper here. Thank you so much for your topic suggestions for future BCC posts. Ma and I are excited to hop into them next week. But for today, I am introducing something new: #WaybackWednesday BCC! I thought it would be fun to go back in time every once in a while, to see what we were chatting about and how things have changed (or not) since then. So here is a throwback to my column from this week two years ago!

-

Good morning, everyone, and hoppy April! Did any of you try to fool your bunn(s) on April Fools Day by declaring that there were no more bananas in the house? Ma knows better than to even TRY that kind of nonsense with me. In fact, I got to eat my Monday treat while sitting on her lap. Some people might say I'm spoiled. And while that is indeed true, here's the thing : I think EVERY bunny should have the chance to be spoiled.

And that's why we're continuing our Easter series here in BCC today. As a reminder : a real rabbit should NEVER be given as an Easter present. Last week we chatted about the reasons why bunnies do not make good pets for young children. Today we're going to discuss a rabbit's living arrangements. Have you heard of the #AHutchIsNotEnough campaign? Because it's true. Us bunns are energetic and inquisitive animals. You cannot simply stick us in a small cage or hutch and assume we'll be happy. Spoiler alert : we won't be. We need several hours of exercise time each day. Some bunns are completely cage-free, having free roam in their homes. Others have a condo or exercise pen, and then they get the opportunity to run, binky, and show off their Bunlympic skills outside of the pen when their humans are home. That is totally fine, but it's important to remember that the condo or pen should be large. A bunny needs to have room to stretch out, stand up, and hop around, even when he or she is in an enclosure. Many pet stores sell cages for bunnies, especially at this time of year with Easter approaching, and I am here to tell you that those cages are almost always too small.

Also, an outdoor hutch? No thanks. There are so many reasons why it's safer for us domestic rabbits to be kept indoors. Because we are prey animals, that makes us susceptible (Ma helped me with that word, just an FYI - it's a big one!) to hawks, foxes, and other predators. Now that it's springtime, that also means people are going to start treating their lawns. Pesticides and weed killers can hurt a bunny if ingested. And in the summer and winter, extreme temperatures are no good for us, either. Then there's the simple fact that we are social animals! We don't want to be stuck in a hutch outdoors, all alone. It makes me so sad to think of that happening to any bunn. We would much rather be inside your home, playing with you, sleeping on your feet, and just generally being part of the family. Some, like me, might also enjoy standing on the sofa and looking out at their kingdom. HahaHA.

And while we're talking about the outdoors, this is SO important : domestic bunnies should absolutely NEVER, EVER, EVER be abandoned outside. We are not the same as wild rabbits and cannot fend for ourselves in a world that seems so big and scary without a human to lean on. Sadly, this is exactly what will happen to so many bunns in the months following Easter. Ask anyone who works in rabbit rescue and they'll tell you it's the busiest - and saddest - time of the year, as they try to save as many abandoned bunnies as possible.

So, please, if you know anyone thinking of gifting a bunny for Easter this year, tell them to choose a chocolate or stuffed one instead. All of us real bunns will give that decision a huge round of app-paws. Need to convince them further? This interview with one of our incredible supporters, my fabulous friend Janelle, will do the trick. Please share the link and help spread the word! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5nM9gUMcgs&feature=youtu.be

I'll see you back here next week, to talk about yet another reason why bunnies should never be given as an Easter present.

As you can see, this topic is every bit as important in 2021. In fact, with RHDV2 now an issue in the western part of the country, it's more important than ever that bunnies live indoors only. And, as you may have seen on social media this week ... the post-Easter abandonment of bunns has sadly already begun, just a few days after the holiday. It is up to us to keep spreading the word about how vital it is to NEVER release rabbits outdoors. I'm counting on you, friends!

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
