I love the fact that your boyfreind is involved in helping the buns too!
My husband is a closet bunny lover. He adores our buns and is so protective but not sure if I could get him out to help.
Cute faces are a hazard of the job. Thats how we got Cooper. But if I had room I would take them all home! lol
Good News! The trappers gave US the bunnies they caught so far - around 50 - instead of killing them. We ran out of foster homes and now they are sending them to the OC shelter, we are trying to arrange something with the OC shelter where they will extend the amount of time they keep the buns in the shelter.
Great news, MooBunnay! I shudder to think how many of those 50 are pregnant females....
MooBunnay - i here ya. I was happy with just two, but then my first (and ONLY) foster rabbit, Jack, just stole my heart. I realized I can't foster anymore.
That's wonderful your BF is involved in volunteering! My husband who never had interest in rabbits (prior me) is involved somewhat too and volunteers once a month. He used to do more, but he has found it soo overwhelming (especially post Easter) with all the work that needs to be done, that he says he just can't take it. Which is why we need more help, but I'm just happy he wants to be involved at all. So I volunteer weekly, and he usually joins me the first week of each month.
He even saved two bunnies once when he was golfing. He saw a guy who was about to let two domestic bunnies loose on the course. My husaband said he would take them, he then took them to the SPCA. (no kill shelter) And he always educates anyone who is interested in listening.
Funny how these little fuzzy faces can really affect us.
My husband adores our three buns but has yet to offer to go help at the shelter. He works a lot and I think his part is letting me spend $ to make sure the shelter buns get their greens and hays. If it wasn't for him I couldn't do that for them. And listening to me talk about my shelter buns all the time. lol
Tomorrow he is going with me to a House Rabbit Society picnic about 1hr 30min from our home. First ever being there but it should be fun. Hopefully there will be more men there. lol
