Hey, Bay Area! What are you doing tomorrow? Going to the House Rabbit Society adoption event and vegan bake sale, is what!
This event not only benefits a truly wonderful rabbit welfare organization, but it’s part of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. So get out to Richmond and buy some sticky buns for the bunnies!
Amazing bunny calendar makes all your wishes come true! »
Wondering what to get your friend who loves Wes Andersen movies just a little too much? Look no further than this amazing rabbit calendar, featuring one bunny in twelve movie outfits, all shot against a beautiful paper background that would not be out of place in the opening sequence from that one movie where the creepy camp kids totally did it. Sunrise something. I don’t know. I got it at the red box.
This calendar, starring a rabbit named Benjamin Linus (because this motherfucka is D-I-G-N-I-F-I-E-D!) is the creation of Lauren Gates, the proprietor of The BBunny Shop on Etsy. Lauren may be the brains behind this operation but Benjamin Linus is the face. And what a face it is! Bedecked in costume after glorious costume, Benjamin Linus blazes through each scene! Sometimes on a magic carpet!
I’m most impressed with the fact that Benjamin Linus was so willing. I once tried to take a picture of my rabbit (Miss Cleo) and she just looked at me as she pooped out pellet after pellet in defiance. Very Les Mis. (In next year’s calendar I would like to see Benjamin all us do either prostitute Fantine or dying Fantine.)
You should purchase ten copies of this calendar and give them to all of your friends! All proceeds go to a rabbit rescue shelter in Connecticut.
Wait, how can we get two of these to the Deschanel sisters? Does anyone know them?
This is Mark’s post but he’s not so good at the internet so I had to post it for him. Please direct all anger and accolades to him.
Shop at Float through Sunday to help the House Rabbit Society! »
Rabbits are amazing, the House Rabbit Society is a wonderful organization, and you could do worse than buying a shirt with their adorable logo from Float, where $8 from every item purchased will go to our bunny-helping pals at the HRS. But this deal only lasts through 8 a.m. Monday, so get on it!
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.
