 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

Good morning, friends. Hoppy Wednesday to bunn and all! I'd like to start off today with a thank you to my honorary Auntie Liz for her super special post about Ma and me the other day. We are very touched and incredibly grateful for the kindness. And yes, it is indeed true that bunnies make a cameo in every book Ma has written since she adopted me. In fact, yours truly in particular may or not be in more than one of them. 🙃😃 What can I say? Ma and I ARE best buddies, after all.

That leads me to today's BCC topic - bonding with your bunny! We've done posts before about bonding rabbits, but I thought we could also chat about ways for you humans to forge your own unique kind of friendship with the bunn(s) in your home. The first thing to know is that every rabbit is unique. Some of us are much more open to interacting with our people from the get-go, and others need more time. Because we are prey animals, it can often take bunnies a while to warm up and trust our new surroundings and family members. And so it is very important to follow your bunn's lead. Let his or her comfort level be in control of how things go, and remember that some bunnies require time, space, and effort on your part so that they can learn to love you.

So what can you do to help this process? Spend time with us on our terms. Start off by just sitting or laying on the floor in our room. Let us come to you. Bunnies are inquisitive animals, and we love to explore. So let us discover what our humans are all about! But here's the thing : it's best to do this on our level. It's part of that whole prey animal thing. Most of us are not exactly big fans of being picked up or held. We much prefer to have all four paws on the ground, so when you get down on the floor with us, we have the best of both worlds. We feel safe, and we also get to know you better!

Another great way to bond with your bunny is to offer a small, healthy treat. This will help us get comfortable taking food from your hand, and if your bunn is amenable to that, you can try to give some gentle pets. Always start off slowly, and again, follow your bunn's lead. If he or she enjoys the pets and asks for more, go right ahead! But if your bunn shies away or seems hesitant, that's okay, too. Accept that, and let your rabbit dictate the bonding process between you.

Actually, here's a good general rule : always let your bunn dictate everything. HahaHA.

But seriously, friends, once your bunny finds something he or she likes, it truly is a good idea to encourage that (within reason, of course ... I mean, I personally am a ginormous fan of trying to eat the carpet, but Ma puts on her spoilsport hat at that point and doesn't let me). When it comes to things like games and snuggles, though, go with what your bunny enjoys! I started playing "Follow the Ma" within a few months after Ma adopted me, and over the years that has not only become my very favorite game, but I now ask Ma to play every single morning and night. I hop over, wedge myself between her feet and boop her ankles ... and she knows just what that means! Proof that humans can be trained very well, I suppose.

If your bunn has a favorite game, too, or maybe a favorite place to cuddle or a favorite spot for you to pet them, that is an excellent way to deepen your friendship. Because, truly, a bunny really does make the very best friend you will ever have.

Tell me, friends - how do YOU bond and interact with your rabbits?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
Jasper Jellybean

We wanted to take a moment to thank you all SO VERY MUCH for your kind and generous donations yesterday. Can't you just imagine the beaming smile on Betty's face, knowing how many animals will be helped because of yesterday's #BettyWhiteChallenge? She was all about changing the world for the better, and we are endlessly grateful to have the best community of supporters by our side as we work to do the same. Thank YOU for being a friend to LNB, and most especially to the bunnies. 💕

Just a friendly but critically important reminder from Liz: if you become aware of a bunny in need, please ONLY use the email addresses on our website or lizzymcneil@hotmail.com to make us aware.

DO NOT FORWARD EMAILS TO US FROM THE SPCA, ACCT, OR ANY OTHER SHELTER.

We are rescue partners with the area shelters and we work directly with them. The onslaught of messages and screen shots sent our way each time a new animal in need comes in not only slows us down, but makes our job impossible with all the outside interference.

Don't text the board members.
Don't use Facebook messenger.
And for the love of all things holy, don't tag our board members on social media.

We work only through email and the thousands of outside messages to our personal accounts are completely inappropriate and unsustainable.
You may think you're helping, but in reality, you're slowing us down.

Email only. And never forward us info from the shelters, we're already working with them.
Thanks!
