Meet Sugar & Jackson (although if you have visited the shelter anytime in the last year, you’ve probably already met them)!
Jackson (left) and his mom, Sugar (right).
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.
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?
“We’ve been really good all year!”
