    So I spent a couple of days this holiday season over at SaveABunny helping out around the homestead.  They’re just as busy as before and are trying their best to get the rabbits into great homes.  I spent my days repairing their drier, cage cleaning, light fixture installation and a plethora of other things.  And it is the only time I look forward to heavy labor.  

    The rough numbers for 2009 is that they rescued around 340 rabbits and adopted out 190.  Yes, that means that there are over 150 rabbits either there or in foster care still looking for forever homes. 

    Now, if I could highlight a couple of the ones that stole my heart while I was there:

     

    Cyan

    Currently, she’s in her own cage because the bullies in her group kept picking on her.   You can tell that she’s upset about being all alone but we’re doing the best we can to keep her happy.  She’s a lot softer looking than in this picture and figured that anyone who wanted a lovely blue eyed white girl would love to meet her.

     

    Hawthorn

    After what we thought was a successful adoption for over a year, Hawthorn has been brought back to SaveABunny.  It was due to conflicts with the owner’s other pets.  This big lover has been through a lot and now he’s been taken from his free ranging for a year back into a pen at the shelter.  He is a great bun.  Although he doesn’t like to be held or picked up, he will follow you around and take all the pets on his level that you’re willing to give him.  There is another lovely, large Ruby-eyed white there called Athena and she’s INCREDIBLY cuddly.  She is, however, a one rabbit home bunny.  So if you’re looking for only one rabbit that will be happy being the only rabbit, she’s perfect (no pic up yet about her though).

    The velveteen crew

    Yup, they’re still there, still as friendly as ever and still waiting for someone to come and snatch them up.  In addition, there are three new lop babies from a rescue that are waiting to grow up just a little bit more so they can be altered and set out for adoption.

    Mazel (Mah-ZEL)

    This is another return from a foster home.  She is an older rabbit who is recovering from cancer surgery.  This rabbit will be completely happy to sit on your lap and be petted all day long.  It is as if she knows what we have done for her was for the best and she’s always happy to see new people.  She’s had a rough life and Marcy will only let her go to a home that would really appreciate this older gal.

     

    Sharrona

    If anyone wants a spirited, fuzzy, adorable rabbit, this is one for you.  She’s really only for rabbit owners who can appreciate a rabbit for herself and not for what they hope a rabbit will be.  Oh, she’ll let you hold her and pet her but if she wants down and you don’t let her, she’ll give you a friendly nip to remind you that it is all about her and she MUST be obeyed.  I have a soft spot for the rabbits people label as ‘aggressive’ when they’re actually just trying to teach you that you are the slave and they are the BUNNY!

    You beat me to it, MB, Cyan is adorable beyond measure! Poor thing, I’d take her and Mazel if I could, I just ‘click’ with them both. One who’s been bullied, one who’s had cancer…how apropos! *shakes head*
    However *clamps mouth shut* if I go on about it, Mark will offer to fly them up if I pay the plane fare. lol….
    I will keep all these bunnies, and the ones who weren’t adopted, in my prayers for good forever homes. I am beginning to really miss living in the bay area at this point. ;_;

    If you can clear a out of state adoption with Marcy of SaveABunny, I am more than willing to fly the rabbits with me to wherever they need to go. And if you’re on the west coast, it is possible that I wouldn’t even need to fly them as I do drive about 4 times a year up to Seattle for friends. I’d prefer flying though. Easier on the buns and me. I’ll even go one step further and pay for the vet visit and medical documentation that the airlines require for transporting pets.

    Oh my gawd.

    All I can say; Oh. My. Gawd.

    I wish I wasn’t so far away from SaveABunny (Minneapolis) I was totally thinking about adopting from there until I found out how far away they are… and theres really no way in H-E-double hockey sticks my parents would pay to fly over there to adopt a bun when we have our local humane society sitting right here 20 mins away…. :'(

    They are all so adorable…I’m glad I ran out of rooms for bunnies or else I’d have a bunch more! Markbun, you are just like my hubby, he also loves the “aggressive” bunnies and has the bite scars on his hands to prove it! I really think that the more a bunny grunts and boxes him the more convinced he is that they love him, haha. It totally worked with our blind bunny Grace tho, she used to box and nip anything that was in front of her, but now she settles into a bunny pancake as soon as she hears his voice. It is quite adorable.

    I know I’m late in responding, but that’s great Mark you got the dryer working! I know it gets alot of use there and without it, it would be a nightmare of pile ups.

    I can see why those bunnies stole your heart! So many sweet fuzzy faces just needing loving forever homes.

    Just as an update, both Cyan and Sharona have been adopted.  Cyan was adopted with this handsome boy, Atom.  I’ve never seen a rabbit with grey eyes before…

    Up and at ’em, Atom Ant! ^_^
    What a cutie! I can imagine how Cyan and Sharrona got snatched up quickly too.
    I just want to know how they heck they got the Velveteens to all hold still for a pic? Did they superglue them to the floor? 0_o

    No news on Mazel? *sits on hands* She seems SO sweet! Is she still cancer free?

    He’s handsome! I just cannot imagine why any of the velveteen crew haven’t been adopted – they are gorgeous and it sounds like they are super friendly. One of my first rescues was a gray Rex named Eddie – he was a love.

    Marcy is known for her ability to corral rabbits for pictures.  The velveteens were nothing compared to this brood:

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE that picture. Is the Californian the mom? How did she manage 3 black and 3 agouti babies?

    Marcy is definitely a wonder woman with rabbits!

    I want the velveteen crew too! my mom and i are going to adopt a bunny from the oakland animal shelter once Siggy gets better. They’re adoption fee is a lot lower than SaveABunny, though SaveABunny has cuter bunnies.

    Actually, SaveABunny is helping the Oakland Animal Services overhaul their bunny room. I’ll probably be helping with the moving and the painting but they work closely with that shelter. SAB doesn’t care where buns get adopted from as long as they go to good homes. I see one there right now called “Her Majesty” in case you want to deal with the fun that is a Dutch Dwarf.
