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

Hi there, friends! Hoppy Wednesday. My apologies for coming your way a bit late today. Ma had an issue with her eye this morning, and so I was busy trying to find out if I had to take HER to the human vet this time. Anyway - all is okay, so here I am to share the answers to last week's trivia questions. Thank you very much to everyone who posted your responses. I am sending a nose boop of gratitude to each of you! I am also sending one to my biggest fan, Janelle (her words, lest you think I am a bragging bunny 🙃😉), who stopped by to visit me last weekend AND give me a treat!

And now, without further ado ...

1. Which breed of rabbit has the longest ears?
The English Lop has the longest ears – they can be more than two feet long when measured from tip to tip! Can you even believe it? That would be like multiple bananas lined up in a row. (Yes, I measure things in bananas. I'm a bunny. It's a rule.)

2. What does it mean when a bunny “happy flops” on its side?
Us bunnies will sometimes throw ourselves onto their sides. That might seem pretty scary to you humans the first time you see it, but a flop usually means all is right in a bunny’s world and we are ready to relax and take a nap! If you see this happen, you should feel honored, because it means your bunny loves and trusts you unconditionally.

3. Do bunnies have eyelashes?
We do indeed – some are even quite long!

4. Why should you never bathe a bunny?
This is a SUPER stressful experience for a bunny – one that could lead it to injure itself – and also, a wet rabbit can easily go into shock. Please do not EVER submerge a bunn in water or give it a bath.

5. Why is it so important to groom/brush your rabbit during heavy shed periods?
Rabbits go through several sheds a year – right now is a common time for one to occur, as you might have noticed. Show of hands: does else anyone have a furnado on their hands like Ma does? HahaHA. Anyhow, it is very important to be extra vigilant about brushing us bunns when the fur is flying. It prevents us from ingesting too much of that fur when we groom ourselves, which can in turn lead to GI stasis. No one and no bun would want that!

So .... how did you do with your answers? Another thank you to everyone who played along, especially Colbie, who answered every question. You are a rockstar!

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
Jasper Jellybean 🐰

Meet Marley and Snowball! These girls are six months old and on the lookout for a forever home. They are curious, friendly, and training for the Bunlympics in the high jump, sprint racing, and everybun’s favorite sport, eating! Surely you’d like to be the proud family of a Bunlympian champion or two, so get those adoption applications in today to bunnies@luvnbunns.org!

Sweet Sarah has been with LNB since February, and she can't help but wonder ... when will it be her turn to find a forever home? She is a curious bunny who likes to share kisses and nose bumps, and of course to explore. Also on her list of fun things to do? Racing around on the couch! Sarah enjoys approaching humans, but she does ask that you don't move too quickly, because then she might skitter off. She has already blossomed so much in her foster home and is learning to like pets on the head. Now she's looking for a person who will continue her lessons and show her that a hoppily-ever-after isn't just for other bunnies, but for her, too. If that's you, please email bunnies@luvnbunns.org. Sarah's paws are crossed that you do!

$5 FRIDAY$

This week's $5 Friday is dedicated to a trio of senior lads who will arrive into Luv-N-Bunns next week. The owner of these 8 year old boys passed away and their temporary caretaker lovingly arranged for their safety by placing them on our intake waiting list. They've been patiently waiting their turn for foster space and we finally have it ready for them!

Bowie, Slenderman and Piazano will need substantial vet care and neuter surgeries, as well as lots of TLC. We're so anxious and excited to care for and love them when they arrive. Any help toward their upcoming vet bills is greatly appreciated. Thank you, dear friends ❤

Hi friends! Liz (and Mochi) here with an important reminder.
Luv-N-Bunns works entirely through email. Please don't use Facebook to tag, message, or otherwise contact or harass any of our members. We have a lengthy waiting list on intake that is currently several months long. Some weeks we receive over 100 requests for help!

We understand how heart-breaking it can be to see bunnies listed as free on Craigslist or Facebook. But we also have many in similar positions already waiting to come into the rescue.
The only way to be placed on our waiting list is to work directly with Suzanne, our intake coordinator. None of the other Luv-N-Bunns members or volunteers can help you, you must email Suzanne directly.

We work very efficiently to rescue, have spayed/ neutered, and rehome up to 200 bunnies each year but we can't do it unless everybunn follows an organized system.
Remember: email only if you'd like our help. Email addresses on our website www.luvnbunns.org work just fine 🙂
