Our newest rescue to date is Frannie! She came to us via a dog rescue that asked us to help with her. She is a delightful bunny! They said that her history was that she was very litter box trained and used to enjoy free range in her home. They had to give her up because of moving. She is spayed now, very healthy and ready for adoption.
She is a very playful, active bunny. We give her a lot of play time, which she enjoys, and we haven’t seen a lot of chewing at all, which is nice. She is very social and enjoys a lot of interaction and attention. She will make one fine companion to any home. She has long eyelashes that give her a real “doe” like look. She has the Lionhead fringe behind her ears, but is bigger (longer) then a pure Lionhead. Plus one ear lops down. So we suspect she is a lop/Lionhead/English Spot mix.
Prilla, our sweet little Lionhead girl, got adopted to be paired with our alumn bunny, Woodstock! Adopters report that they are very bonded and kissie bunnies!
Prilla waited quite a long while for her perfect home to come along – over a year. She had a lot of close calls when being shown for adoption but was overlooked each time. She has a very gentle, quiet nature that makes her a perfect bonding candidate. Woodstock thinks so, too!
Our sweet girl went home to be paired with a sweet little boy named Nougat. Nougat lost his companion back in August when she succumbed during a surgery. He was a lonely guy trying to groom stuffed animals. He was very happy when Yolanda came home to him.
The first night they were together for a long time during their bonding session just peacefully laying side by side. Very promising. We are very happy that they both have a new lease on life. It makes us extremely satisfied to see once sad bunnies blossom in their new homes. THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!
It’s been a long time since we have posted. So many bunnies and experiences have passed.
Our newest rescue is Yolanda. Beautiful black Lionhea d girl was sitting in a shelter with an eye problem. We weren’t sure of her status and whether the eye was infected or ulcerated. Several of our rescue partners were concerned that she was in pain.
We rescued her out and sought immediate medical attention. Fortunately the eye was not infected or ulcerated. It was scarred due to and old injury. No treatment needed.
It was also discovered (during surgery) that she was already spayed. So, she’s doing well and is ready for adoption. She’s about three years old.
New Flemish Giant babies transferred from another organization that rescued them from a meat breeder! No names yet but they are 4 months old and both spayed/neutered this week. They already have a forever home. Sweet babies! Big babies!
As if the sadness of Maria was not enough we found that Buster had two lung tumors. He was breathing a bit heavy and went to the vet to have it checked out. Xrays shows densities and ultrasound confirmed that they are tumors. Dr. Ness put him on a few herbal support supplements and we will keep him as comfortable as possible. Clyde, the black bunny, is his bondmate and depends so much on him.
Wednesday we had to say goodbye to our sanctuary rabbit, Maria. She endured two surgeries for infected tooth roots. Just three months later the whole right side of her face and behind her eye was infection. Abscess in her third eye lid on the right – lots of little pockets of pus and little abscesses. The left side (where there was teeth) was spurs and lesions on her tongue and cheek. The teeth didn’t line up at all. She was eating a ton and still lost a pound since July. She seemed weak and so thin and miserable. The right eye leaked so much and she drooled so much that she was wet from her face, down her chest, her front legs and paws and around her neck. I was blotting it everyday with thick towels. I think we’ve done all we could for her. I sure will miss her. She was a brave little soul.
