Oakley’s story:

Oakley was found in a drainpipe outside of McKean Park. When we got her out, we

noticed that she was dirty and covered in ear mites, but we cleaned her up!

After a few days, we notice that she was pregnant. Two weeks later on May 28th, she had a littler

of 6! They are now about 13 weeks old. Here are her babies!

The girls are:

Magnolia was found under a porch next to a park. When we got her out, she came

with 4 other babies. We already named them though. Now, we thought something

was wrong with her, but again, she was pregnant!! One weeks later on May 21st, she also had a

litter of 6! They are about 14 weeks old. Her are her bunny’s names.

Her girls are named:

Fact or fiction: when bunnies are curious, they sit up on their hind legs, it is called a

bunny yoga pose. Answer at end of blog*

Overall

Both moms had 4 girls and 2 boys. While E.A.R.S was at Discover Presque Isle, we

asked you, the public, to give name suggestions with a small donation. So pretty

much we had a little baby shower there, and as you can read, the names that were

chosen fit each of their lovely personalities. There were so many to choose from, and

we thank everyone for participating in our baby naming shower.

Why to adopt

Yes! All the babies are up for adoption! They are so sweet! I recommend adopting

one of these sweet bunnies to you!!!

* Answer to Fact or fiction is.. FICTION! It is called the prairie dog pose.

Hello everyone!! I have another bunny story for you!

This little bunny’s name is Thor.

Snuggle Bunny, I love you!

History

Thor was brought to E.A.R.S as a baby by his owner because his owner had an accidental litter. He is 2 years old and is a silver fox breed. His fur color is black. He was fostered before coming, but now he is at E.A.R.S waiting for a loving family to take him home.

Fact: It is known that if a bunny is bonded to another bunny, they are inseparable!

Personality

Now, Thor loves to be pet! He will sit and let you pet him and he is sooo soft!!!!!! If you want to take a picture of him, well, he will definitely pose for you as well!!! He will sniff playfully.

Fact: Did you know that if a bunny does a binky, that means he/she is very happy?

Why to adopt Thor

If you are thinking to adopt this cute bunny, then do it!! He will melt your heart away. This bunny needs to be adopted into a loving home and be very well taken care of. I recommend Thor to you!!!!

Featured Bunnies!| A Bunny Blogger Feature

It is always a hoppy day at E.A.R.S!  On this particular interview day, the bunnies were visited by several children and enjoying the special attention they were getting.  This blog article features several bunnies and their visitor friends.

By: Lauren Galle-Boyko

Oliver

oliver581

This little cutie is a lion head/silver martin breed and he 1 ½ years old. He, along with his brother, were not wanted by the owner.  So, the owner brought him and his brother to E.A.R.S. His brother was adopted, and now Oliver is looking for a home of his own. In this picture, David St. George came to visit.

Chip

chip549

Little Chip came from  New Jersey. He came to E.A.R.S. because if he was not taken in by a rescue he would have been sent to auction. Chip is 5 months old. He is an English lop bunny with VERY long ears!!! He is a love bug!! Chip was adopted once, but it wasn’t a good match with the family dog. So he, once again, is looking for a forever home.  This photo features visitor Aidan stopping by to enjoy the sun with him.

Chip546

Courage

courage553

This pretty brown/gray bunny is named Courage. She is 1 ½ years old and is a mini-lop. The snap shot of courage has Lauren (me) holding her. She already has a loving family, but we have more mini lops up for adoption just as beautiful as her.

Mooi

mooi 534 (1)

And of course, don’t forget Mooi (our bunny feature from last week). At E.A.R.S, Mooi looks sad in her cage, but when she comes out to play, she is very lively with people and other bunnies! Natalie St. George was also visiting this day and enjoyed her snuggles. She is a Dutch bunny.

LOOKING FOR OUR FOREVER HOME!

No matter which bunny you choose, they all would love to have a family to call their own. Adopting a bunny makes your family and home complete.

Mooi | A Bunny Blogger Feature

Hello all you bunny lovers!!! The story today is about a sweet bunny named Mooi.

By: Lauren Galle-Boyko

Mooi 516

History

Mooi’s birthday is on July 4th, 2014. So, she is 2 years old. She used to be fostered before coming here. She is also a Dutch bunny. Her parents had not been spayed or neutered so they had too many bunnies. Mooi came in as a baby because the owners did not keep all the bunnies they had. When she came to E.A.R.S, she was grown up enough to be adopted (she has never had an home of her own).

mooi 520

 I hope my fur doesn’t get wet!

Personality

Mooi’s personality is more calm and sweet. She is a little scared at first, but when she starts to smell you, then it means it is ok to pet her. She is black and white and her front toenails look like they have been painted white! She is playful and she can be interested in what you are doing. When I was playing with her, I had a stuffed soccer ball and I put it down. She came right over and checked it out.

Mooi 505

Soccer, anyone?

Why to adopt her

If you wanted to adopt Mooi, then go ahead! She is very sweet and wants to be loved by an owner that will take her. Like I said, she has never had a home of her own and she would be so delighted to have a wonderful home to live in! So, I recommend Mooi to you for adoption!

Claudia | A Bunny Blogger Feature

Hey guys!!! This week’s blog is about a bunny named Claudia.

395 claudia

History

Claudia is a female bunny and she is 4 years old. We do not know what kind of breed

she is. She arrived in December of 2013. The reason of why she came here was of

owner surrender. This means the original family gave up their pet so that another

loving home could have her. That is why they gave her to E.A.R.S Interesting though,

before she came, the family thought she was a male. The name was actually Clyde,

but we changed it to Claudia.

323 claudia

Now, this cute bunny hasn’t been spayed*, and for her situation, she can’t have any

other bunnies in the household. So, if you are looking for only one bunny to love,

Claudia is your girl!!!

327 claudia

Personality

Claudia’s personality is so cute. She has chocolate-brown fur and honey-brown eyes.

When you first meet her, she might come to you. What you want to do is put your

hand out for her to smell you. She will decide if she likes you or not. For me, she

liked me immediately, and she is very friendly. She smells every thing at first. When

I played with her, she went through the tube and it felt like we were playing a game

of hide and seek!!

334 claudia

Why to adopt her

This cute little bunny loves to cuddle with you and is very sweet and loving. She is

one of the bunnies that have been at this shelter for the longest time!!! Another thing

is that she LOVES to be pet! She could be your perfect bunny companion. Overall, I

recommend Claudia to be adopted by a sweet, one-bunny family that will take care

of her well!

*Claudia cannot be spayed. EARS spays/neuters all of our rabbits unless, like Claudia’s case, the procedure is too risky. We attempted to have Claudia spayed shortly after she came into rescue, but during the procedure the veterinarian noticed something was wrong and did not spay her, knowing it was too risky to continue.

Tofurky Trot 2016 | Sunday June 12th

EARS will be attending the Tofurky Trot, which is to be held on Sunday June 12th from     8-1pm at Frontier Park. We will have a tent with T-shirts and other EARS merchandise for sale. As always, we will bring a few of our adoptable bunnies along with us for the fun.

Mr. Nibbles and Betsy Ross- A Bunny Blogger Feature!

History

For my first story, I want to introduce you to two special bunnies from our organization, Betsy Ross and Mr. Nibbles. Even though these bunnies were rescued and brought to EARS at different times, while in foster care, they decided they wanted to be with each other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. Nibbles is about 2 years old. Before he came to E.A.R.S, he was a summer bunny that lived at Camp Notre Dame.  The campers were given a chance to adopt bunnies. All the other bunnies got adopted but him! The people at this camp called E.A.R.S, and asked if they would take Mr. Nibbles in. Of course we said yes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Betsy Ross (or Baby Girl) came from a flea market at 4 months old. She is over 1 year old now. As you might see in her pictures, Betsy does not have an ear. We do not know what happened, so we can only guess. When she was rescued, Betsey had no food or water and she was in the hot sun all day! Thank goodness E.A.R.S rescued her!  In this feature photo, it looks like she is praying.  I wonder if she is thankful for being rescued or praying to be adopted?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because they want to be with each other, now they are bonded. This means, they are life partners and they CANNOT be separated.  They must be adopted together.  And what a cute pair they are!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Personality

Betsy is a Flemish bunny. Betsy got her name because she was rescued on the 4th of July. She loves to smell everything to get used to it. She is very inquisitive. She is shy at first.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. Nibbles is adorable! He is half lop bunny and half chinchilla. He also loves to smell everything and is very inquisitive. He is shy as well. He also loves to play/run in a tube!  In this picture, he looks like he’s ready to take off like an airplane, landing in your loving home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are the perfect pair. Some things they do together.  They will groom each other, eat food together, play together (chasing), and they always look out for each other. Overall, they LOVE to be together!!!!!!!!

 

Why to adopt them both

If someone were to adopt both of these adorable bunnies, they would be perfect because you wouldn’t get enough of them! They are they most cute, most adorable, and most awesome pets to have! I recommend Mr. Nibbles and Betsy Ross for you to adopt!!!
