I came in today and my two normal buns were there along with a new chinchilla who was a neglect case from the weekend.

Anyways, I talked with the manager about whats going on and he told me the next time our mobile vet is here the buns will be fixed! He said the stuff from our bunny store will reimburse the shelter for their spays/neuters. THe only thing is this mobile unit has gotten itself a reputation of killing too many female buns on the table. So I told them boy buns only thru them! They did a great job with my Cooper and gave him Metacam for pain. But they do SO many other animals all in the same day they dont have the time to really give to doing a female spay. So we are meeting asap with the shelter staff to find an alternative to getting our females spayed.

I am so excited!!!

Hi! Thats great !! And good job doing your research about the mobile unit...its tough to find good spayers. At my rescue we did a couple spay appointments at a cheaper place and the girls had a tough recovery Boys seem to bounce back pretty quickly though!

All we have to do now is come up with a schedule on who will take the buns home when they are fixed. We have no overnight vet care and even if we did they would refuse to watch our buns so there will be 3 of us taking turns watching them overnight.

I had a mtg with our shelter manager. we have some staff having issues with the changes with the buns. But we were told today that me and the other guy that works with the buns will have complete control over what goes on with the buns. If we say they cant go to a certain person, or if they cant go offsite, etc, we have final say.

That was so good to hear so that we do not have to argue over silly things. We have issue with some of the buns going offsite that shouldn't but now we wont have that issue-or at least will have more control.

Speaking of taking buns offsite, is there any chance that you can take the buns to a pet place to have a small adoption show?  A place like PETCO or PetsMart?

The shelter takes cats and dogs offsite all the time for stuff like that. Rarely they take a bun. Since our rabbits arent fixed we can have problems like spraying to deal with. So unless they are very good and calm by nature they dont take them.

Since we are gonna start fixing them that could be something we could do. The mgr said we can take this whole bunny thing and make it as big as we want. They are paying for me to go have posters made. I have info sheets hanging up in the lobby.

We have other bunny people around so I am going to get their names and ask them to help. I am getting a little overwhelmed and I am looking for a part-time job so I wont have so much time to do all this. I still will do pretty much all I am already doing but probably tone it down some and ask for more help. Im a perfectionist so if I can be a little obsessive with how things are handled and done.

Hi! I sent you an email - but I thought I'd post in case you checked here sooner - I have an adopter in Ohio and was wondering if you have a pair of buns that could be adopted out?  The adopter has been waiting very patiently for us to get her some bunnies from our big rescue, but we have not been able to arrange transport, and was wondering if you might have two buns that could use a friendly home? Let me know through an email, and I will discuss with the adopter. Thanks!

We still havent' figured everything out-like who will do them. The biggest thing is finding people to keep the buns over night after surgery. I have asked around and so far we have four people willing to help. So now its a matter of just getting it done.
