 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:

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.

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Good morning, friends, and Hoppy Wednesday to bunn and all! I wanted to say a huge thank you for all the kind words and well wishes you left on my post last week. You sure know how to make a bunny’s heart binky with gratitude! I am happy to say that I was back to my usual happy and hoppy self by the end of the week … AKA I wanted to eat all the things, explore all the places, and get into all the mischief.

(What can I say? I am VERY good at being a bunny!) 🙃

Anyway – since I had my tear duct flushed and my teeth trimmed last week, I thought today I would share some interesting tooth-related facts with you. Did you know that rabbits have 28 teeth? It's hard to imagine all those teeth fitting into our little mouths, but that is indeed the case! We have four incisors, two auxiliary incisors, ten premolars, and twelve molars! This must be why we're experts at eating. And it's a good thing, too, because bunnies NEED to keep chewing in order to keep our teeth ground down. Because they are open-rooted, that means they keep growing continuously. If they get too long, it can be quite painful and cause many issues, so it's important to make sure your bunn has lots and lots (and lots!) of hay. Along with aiding in digestion, the constant munching on hay (and toys made of hay, like the one I have here) will help to keep our teeth at a healthy length.

But even with all that hay, there are some cases when a bunny's teeth will need to be trimmed. I fit into this category. I am basically a chewing connoisseur, both on things I'm supposed to eat and things that make Ma fling herself across the room and launch into her "No, no, no, we don't eat that" babble (erm, I mean helpful advice 😉) ... but I still need to visit my vet for a crown reduction once or twice a year, like I did last Tuesday. That's because I have a genetic malocclusion in my molars, which means they don't line up properly - and so it's difficult for them to be worn down the way they're supposed to be, even with all that eating of hay. I go for "tooth check" appointments every three or four months, and once they start getting points on them, it's time for a trim.

Teeth that are too long can be very painful for a bunny and lead to other issues down the road, so it's important to keep an eye out for any signs of dental problems in your bunn. These can include trouble eating (especially harder foods, like pellets), drooling or wetness around the mouth, and eyes that are watery and/or have discharge. If your bunn is showing any of these signs, a vet visit is in order.

Tell me, friends : do your bunns need their teeth trimmed, too?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
Jasper Jellybean 🐰

HELP NEEDED

Please, can you help save a life?

Being a rabbit can be pretty tough, you know. We are the third most popular pet in the U.S., but we are also the third most abandoned. This year has been especially overwhelming. The LNB humans have received 302 requests for intake so far in 2022. Yes, you read that correctly. 302 requests, many for multiple rabbits. There are so many bunnies in need, and this number doesn't even include the stray bunns that LNB has rescued - bunns that were let loose outside and left to fend for themselves. Take it from me: it is a big, scary world out there when you're a domestic bunny who only wants a place to feel safe and loved.

That is where YOU come in. Luv-N-Bunns desperately needs help. Quite simply put, there is not enough space for all the rabbits who are waiting. LNB wants to help as many as possible, but they need YOU in order to do it. Do you have room in your home and in your heart for a foster bunn? I promise, we don't take up much space. Somewhere soft to rest our paws without worrying about where we will sleep, when we'll find food, and how to keep ourselves protected from all the dangers ... there are so many bunns right now whose hearts are dreaming of someone who will show them all the good this world has to offer. I know this, because I used to be one of them.

Please, won't you help my fellow bunny friends? If you can, email bunnies@luvnbunns.org for more information. Not only will you save one bunny's life, but two - the rabbit you foster, and the one that will make space for in LNB's network. The LNB humans would be grateful beyond words.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

TAKE ME HOME TUESDAY

Hello there! I'm Nugget. You might remember my sister Thumper's post from a few weeks ago. Just like her, I was also abandoned outside, on the campus of a local college. Now, I know us bunns are smart and all - like collegiate level smart! - but if I'm being honest, we would much prefer to spend our time inside a home, rather than outdoors - especially because this was during the freezing cold winter. Even the students were home for break!

I am super grateful to the kind person who found Thumper and me and helped us to safety. Now we're part of the LNB network! And so I am hoping to have a human of my very own soon - one who will love me, and take care of me, and keep me indoors where I belong.

Is that you? I sure hope so, because I'd love to meet you. If you'd like to be best friends, please email bunnies@luvnbunns.org for an adoption application. My paws are crossed!
