History

All of these sweet babies are American bunnies and they are all brothers and sisters!

They came to E.A.R.S in the year 2014. Right now they are all about 2 years old. They

came into E.A.R.S as a surrender because this family had one too many accidental

litter(s). E.A.R.S (of course) said yes to taking a litter in!

Personalities

Athena, Persephone, and Aphrodite:

delighted in having a perfect family to love them and take care of them. Persephone

love to have a home that would care for her! * Turns out, these 3 sisters are a

bonded trio!!!!! They would all love happy homes together!

bunny to do it with!

have to adopt them all!! Do not separate them. They are all partners for life!!!

The Doctor’s Adoption Story

Helloooooooooooo fellow bunny lovers!!!!  This a new special feature where I tell you how this cute bunny got adopted. Once upon a time, his name was Oat….

By: Lauren Galle-Boyko

His Story

doctor-1

Is this my good side?

This summer, Oat with his friends was rescued from a breeder in Butler County.  He and his friends were housed in a garage without air conditioning.  The day he was found, the garage was at least 100 degrees!  The animals were distributed between different rescue centers, including E.A.R.S.  The animals were testing for different ailments, but Oat was healthy.

On one of my visits to the shelter, mom and I saw Oat and it was love at first hop!  We decided that he would be the perfect companion for my bunny,  Melonna!

The Adoption

doctor-3

 Look at my beautiful coloring!

On August 7, 2016, I was at the Because You Care animal walk with some other volunteers and my mom, she was asking when we could adopt Oat. Linda, one of the E.A.R.S founders, said, “How about today?”

Were we excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So right before the event was over, mom called dad to bring the bunny carrier.  Dad came in about 10 minutes with the bunny carrier. Mom squealed and so did I when we realized we were finally taking the bunny home today.

When we picked him up from the shelter, I got to sit in the back with him. It was so hard for me not to open up the carrier and play with him the whole way home!

Today

doctor-4

Love Buns!

At my house today, he lives very hoppily in his new cage with his nearly-bonded girlfriend Melonna. We actually changed his name to The Doctor (We named him that because of a British TV show we like called Doctor Who).  Just last night (September 20, 2016), they slept side by side with just the fence of their homes between them.  Soon they will live together full-time, their bonding going well.

So with that, he and Melonna live hippity-hoppily ever after. That is the story of how this cutie got adopted by my loving family ☺

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.

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.
