A Rabbit Education & Adoption Event!
Saturday, May 5th
East Bay SPCA
4651 Gleason Drive, Dublin, CA
Five minutes of snuggling baby bunnies! This is “Baby Bunnies with an Epic Sountrack,” by Ian Elwood. If you loved this (and what kind of heartless bastard doesn’t love baby bunnies), you’ll love all his videos, they’re sweet and heartwarming.
About this video, Ian says:
These babies were born shortly after rescue at the municipal shelter, so the birth couldn’t be prevented. Momma bunny was confiscated by animal control from an Oakland resident who was raising them in squalid conditions for meat. The local animal rescue community intervened, and we were able to save all of the rabbits from slaughter. Here are (depressing) photos and a newscast from that situation.
Oakland is considering allowing residents to keep rabbits in their backyard as “farm animals.” And we all know what that means. Neighbors Opposed to Backyard Slaughter is working hard to protect all of Oakland’s animals, please support this important work by following on Facebook.
This video will be on loop all day at Vegansaurus HQ, and for ALL TIME in our hearts. Thanks, Ian!
Celebrate Easter by attending a bunny adoption on Saturday! »
Our pals at Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary are having another bunny adoption on Saturday, and you should go! Got the Easter Bunny fever? Meet some actual bunnies, get more information about how totally great rabbits are and whether one would make an awesome new best friend for you! (Hint: Probably.)
Harvest Home wants to note that they have a “no same-day adoptions” rule, so you won’t be going home with a bunny on Saturday, though you will most likely want to take them all and feed them strawberries and carrot greens, but that would put your heart at serious risk of exploding from cuteness, so, no dice. Instead, you can meet some cool rabbits, learn about what bunnies need from a human, and maybe start the adoption process so that someday soon you will be romping with your bun. Like Bugsy up here!
This event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 7, at the Tri-Valley SPCA at 4651 Gleason Dr. in Dublin. As always, there’ll be bunny speed-dating and nail-trimming for you lucky people who already have rabbits.
Get ready to drop dead of adorableness: It’s highlights from the Rabbit Grand National! Bunnies doing hurdles! Bless you, The Cute Show, for bringing us this thing of beauty and wonder. I feel like I’ve found my calling and it’s training bunnies to jump over stuff fast.
Now, I did wonder if this was especially good for rabbits. I know that things like obstacle courses can be enriching for dogs, but shy little bunnies? So, I consulted with rabbit expert (and vegan we love) Anne Martin. And she gives it her OK! Anne says:
That video is pretty adorable! I think rabbit show jumping is OK, as long as the rabbits have good lives as companions while they’re not jumping hurdles (and it sounds like these women in the video love their rabbits, and have them live inside), and rabbits aren’t being killed/disposed of if they’re not champion jumpers or that their “titles” were being used by breeders to sell rabbits (I don’t think you have to worry about that here).
I think it’s a good video to share—it shows how rabbits are intelligent, agile, and not the stereotypical bunny-in-the-backyard-hutch-that-is-so-depressed-he-just-sits-there-and-waits-for-nothing-forever.
Here’s a website with great info on how to clicker train your rabbit, for those who might be interested in training their rabbit to jump hurdles, after they watch the competition video!
The only caveat I would put on the clip is that they show rabbits in cages with wood shavings—the phenols from the wood can cause liver damage, so House Rabbit Society recommends avoiding shavings. Also, spayed/neutered rabbits will use a litterbox, so don’t need “bedding” all over their cages like that—check out my handout on safe alternatives to pine shavings [pdf].
Thanks, Anne! Isn’t she the best? If you have the bunny-jumping fever, there are, in Anne’s words, a bajillion rabbits on Petfinder in a location near you. If you need me, I’ll be watching this video on repeat until my brain explodes from cuteness.
The House Rabbit Society would like to remind you that your new best friends, bunnies, are just waiting for you to meet them. Do you read the HRS newsletter? It’s great! In this month’s, we learn about a garden work party happening on Saturday, March 10, some upcoming movies, classes, and lunches (vegan!), and meet a few of the newest foster bunnies living at HRS HQ in Richmond, Calif.
Adopt a bunny at the East Bay SPCA on Saturday! »
It’s another multiple-organization (woo woo) rabbit adoption event! Meet and greet bunnies from Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, Hayward Animal Services, Tri-City Animal Shelter, and Bananas for Bunnies rabbit rescue. As always, you can also bring your fixed rabbit for help with matchmaking and free nail trims, get advice from rabbit experts, and purchase some bun-accessories. Plus, you can feed the rabbits fresh greens! If you haven’t watched a rabbit eat a big old carrot-top, you haven’t lived.
All the fun happens from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the East Bay SPCA Tri-Valley Adoption Center, at 4651 Gleason Dr. in Dublin. Contact them at (925) 479.9670 with any questions, and get ready to have fun with some adorable buns! Like Sidney, a male mini rex mix, who kindly agreed to lend his image to this post.
PS: You can preview the adoptable rabbits at each organization’s site: Harvest Home at PetFinder; Hayward Animal Services at Pet Harbor; Tri-City Animal Shelter at Pet Harbor; and Bananas for Bunnies.
Just a big lop hopping around to Feist. Thanks for pushing all of my nurturing buttons, Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary. I’ll be ping-ponging between wanting babies and wanting bunnies for the rest of the day.
