Bunny of the Week- Pixie!

Meet Pixie, the bunny of the week!

Pixie is ready to ring in the new year in a forever home!

Pixie is ready to ring in the new year in a forever home!

Pixie’s mom, Pippi, was rescued from a terrible hoarding situation. The bunnies were being kept in outdoor hutches with males and females being kept together, so Pippi was pregnant when she was rescued. Pixie was born at the shelter.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Pixie is a shy, sweet girl. She loves to bury herself under hay in her litter box. She can be timid, especially in her crate, but she is much more friendly when she gets out, and she does not mind being held and cuddled. She always loves a chance to get out and stretch her legs. Because she likes to hide in her hay, Pixie is often overlooked at the shelter. She is a great bunny, but she has still been at the shelter for a long time. Pixie is hoping that 2015 brings her a forever home!

Bunnies of the Week- Ginny & Mary!

Meet Ginny and Mary!

Ginny and Mary wish you a Merry Christmas!

Ginny and Mary wish you a Merry Christmas!

These beautiful girls came to us from a rescue in North Carolina. Both were pregnant and needed a place to go. Mary gave birth to North and Carolina. Ginny is the mother of Heidi, Milton, and Hershey. Ginny also took in Harriet and cared for her as one of her own (all of their babies are still available for adoption). Ginny and Mary are bonded moms. They went through their pregnancies together and raised their babies side by side.

"All I want for Christmas is a forever home!"

“All I want for Christmas is a forever home!”

Ginny is a sweetheart who loves to have her head scratched. She will always be first in line for food or treats! She would do well in a quiet home as she gets stressed around loud noises (children, dogs). She loves to explore when she gets out of her crate, and you’ll fall in love with her calm but inquisitive nature.

Mary is a shy girl. She spends a lot of time hiding in her box and likes to bury herself under piles of hay in her litter box. However, she is still extremely friendly. She does not mind being held and cuddled; she likes to nuzzle up to your neck when you hold her.

Ginny and Mary are both very sweet bunnies! They were very good mommies and now that the kids have moved out, they deserve a home of their own!

Wishing you a happy holiday season!

Bunnies of the Week- Sugar & Jackson!

Meet Sugar & Jackson (although if you have visited the shelter anytime in the last year, you’ve probably already met them)!

Jackson is a momma's boy.

Sugar and Jackson are a mother/son bonded pair that have been at the shelter for over a year. Poor Sugar went through a lot before coming to EARS. She was found in a hotel desk drawer by a girl, who took her home. Unfortunately, rather than giving Sugar the happy home she deserved, the girl bred her multiple times and sold the babies to neighbors. When the girl discovered that the babies she sold were being eaten and fed to pet snakes, she started selling them to a pet store instead. Eventually, Sugar was surrendered to EARS with six babies (from two litters), but they were in bad shape. They were being kept in plastic tubs and were being fed fruit loops. One of the babies had head tilt and was unable to stand or walk- it was taken to Judge’s Park to be treated. Luckily, it made a full recovery and was adopted into a loving home. Two of the babies were taken to the French Creek shelter and two were adopted from EARS. Jackson is the last of Sugar’s babies and he stayed with his mom.

Sweet Sugar!

Sweet Sugar!

Sugar is a sweet girl (get it?!) who is always greets you at the front of her crate when it’s time for food or treats. She is a fairly large, all-white bunny with beautiful lilac eyes. She is shy, but does not mind being held or cuddled. She grows braver when there is food involved- if you want her to come to you, you only need to pay up.

“Mom said I have to be on my best behavior”

Jackson is a timid little guy who is the definition of a momma’s boy. He is well behaved and calm (he knows his mom is always watching). Jackson is very soft and fluffy and although he can be shy, he is fine with being held. He just needs a loving forever home to help him break out of his shell!

Sugar and Jackson are very sweet bunnies, but they are often overlooked at the shelter. Sometimes people who are looking to adopt are hesitant to adopt a pair, although it is much easier than adopting two non-bonded bunnies, as the difficult work of bonding is already done for you! Sugar and Jackson have been waiting a long time for a good home, will Santa bring them one this year?

Bunny of the Week- Anna!

This is Anna- the bunny of the week!

Princess Anna of Arendelle.

Princess Anna of Arendelle!

Anna was abandoned outside and was rescued by EARS (at the same time and only a few blocks away from where Elsa was also rescued). She is a beautiful black bunny with an adorable dewlap (the extra fur under her chin). Anna has always been somewhat skittish, which is most likely a product of her time outside. She does not like to be held, and for a while was not comfortable with being touched at all. However, in the past few months she has grown more friendly. She has been sitting near the door of her crate and does not run away when you pet her or scratch between her ears. Sometimes she even begs for attention or food when you walk by. She is still not comfortable with being picked up (like most rabbits), but has definitely become more comfortable around people in general. Unfortunately, Anna is one of the most overlooked bunnies at the shelter due to her timidity, solid black color, and because she is not a lop or a lionhead (two breeds the majority of people look for). She does not attract the attention of most potential adopters, even though she would benefit greatly from the love and attention that a forever home can provide. So the next time you stop by, give Anna some love!

Bunny of the Week- Angelica!

Meet Angelica, the bunny of the week!

Giant bunny!

Angelica was turned away from a fair because she had a respiratory tract infection. She was taken in by the French Creek shelter to be treated and she eventually ended up at EARS. Angelica has been in the shelter for a long time!

The picture does not do her justice.

Angelica is the biggest bunny at the shelter- she is bigger than most small dogs! Because of her size, she is often passed over in favor of smaller bunnies. There is nothing she loves more than getting out of her crate to stretch her legs. She isn’t always comfortable with being held (probably because she is so big), but she is very sweet. She is inquisitive and adventurous and she will let you know when she wants attention. Angelica would love a forever home that gives her a lot of room to run. She is currently living at the Bunny Bungalow on W. 38th, so make an appointment to come and visit her!
