Have you watched Isa’s video of her wild backyard bunny, Falafel, aka my new best friend? Man I wish we had wild bunnies in New York. Rats are fine and all, but there’s nothing like a lightning-quick little bunny darting into your path and surprising you with cuteness. Adorability sneak attack!

Got a tip about an awesome vegan-friendly event? Let us know! We love fun!
Happy belated Easter from our favorite Pacific Northwest Leporidae, Bells and Nuage! Is there ever a bad time for a bunny video? Of course not.
Nuage is a bunny of discerning tastes. Here, he demonstrates his disdain for mass-market apple branches, and his absolute love of domestic apple branches.
You want a bundle for your precious little gnawer? Get some from Vegansaurus pal Potentially Nervous! Just $20 for two pounds of branches, including shipping, and your buns (and chinchillas, and other tooth-serious animals).
I love a rabbit who knows what he likes (read: all rabbits). I want to offer two kinds of everything bunnies like to Nuage to see which he prefers. It’s like the Pepsi challenge, but way cuter and 100 percent chemical-free.
Meet Bunlet! Per SaveABunny,
Bunlet is an incredibly sweet, loving and brave little baby bunny. He was found abandoned in a San Francisco park with a badly broken leg. It was recommended that we allow him to get euthanized because “no one wants white rabbits—especially one with a broken leg.”
That statement broke my heart and was a deciding factor in rescuing him. Bunlet deserves to be loved and to have the chance to live a long, happy life doing binkies and dances like any other rabbit.
Won’t you be Bunlet’s Valentine this year, and throw a few dollars to SaveABunny to help this poor little guy? We love you, Bunlet! Get well soon!
Got a heart? Foster some bunnies for Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary! »
Things your Vegansaurus advises you do: Foster some bunnies for Harvest Home!
As our pal Anne Martin says, “Opening your home to a single or bonded pair of bunnies for the holidays is a great way for them to get special TLC, and help them get ready to find their forever homes!”
We ask for a fostering commitment of at least one month. You can specify a fostering end date, but we are particularly appreciative of foster homes that can keep their foster rabbit until they are adopted, which can be anywhere from two to nine months.
Adoptable Rabbit Fosters: These rabbits have no special needs, they just need a foster home where they can get daily hop time, fresh salads, and love! These fosters will take their foster bunny to a monthly adoption event.
Special Foster: Rabbit Behavior: These fosters specialize in rabbits that need extra TLC because of their personality or past experiences that have left them shy, fearful, or protective. We would love fosters who have time to spend some one-on-one time with their foster bunny each day, to help them become more comfortable in a home environment. … These fosters will take their foster bunny to a monthly adoption event.
Special Foster: Rabbit Medical Care: These fosters have experience with rabbits, would like to specialize in special needs bunnies, and would be happy to foster a bunny with limited mobility (like a healed, formerly broken leg), congenital problems (like splay-leg), a rabbit that needs a daily oral medication, or a rabbit that needs to visit our vet occasionally for conditions like overgrown teeth, or a weepy eye. Harvest Home pays for all approved vet care, including medications. These rabbits would not be shown at adoption events until they receive a clean bill of health from the vet—they could be returned to Harvest Home at that time. We can match the medical care foster rabbit to your level of experience.
Special Foster: Sanctuary Foster: These fosters take home a single or pair of rabbits who are in sanctuary care. Similar to adopting, these rabbits can live out the rest of their lives in their foster home, however, Harvest Home will pay all approved medical expenses for the life of the rabbits. People interested in becoming sanctuary fosters can meet the available sanctuary singles & pairs and select the rabbits that best fit their lifestyle. We have many older bunnies who would love to spend their golden years in a home.
Harvest Home provides all the startup materials necessary for keeping a happy, healthy bun in your home, including a pen or cage, litterbox, dishes, and initial food. You feed your foster rabbit, and give him or her daily out-of-cage fun time.
If you’re interesting in fostering one (or more!) bunnies for Harvest Home, contact Anne. To see some of the bunnies available for adoption right now, including the three cutiepies in this post (Bugsy, Flower, and Dudley), check out Harvest Home’s Petfinder.

They’re adorable and kid friendly! Here’s the info, plus photos. Which is all you really need because LOOK AT THEM:

3) The best way for people to contact us is through the contact form on our website or via email.
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.
