Meet Mooi– the bunny of the week!
Who’s that Pokemon? It’s…. Mooi!
Mooi came to EARS with her sister Naomi (featured last week). After Mooi and Naomi were born, their owners decided to move and could not keep them. They came to us and were raised in a foster home. Mooi is now 9 months old and looking for her forever home!
Mooi is a cute-type Pokemon.
Mooi’s name means “beautiful” in Dutch, and she is indeed a beautiful Dutch bunny! Mooi is a fun and energetic rabbit who would love to run around and play all day. She is also very sweet and loves to be cuddled. Goofy girl Mooi will always keep you happy and entertained.
Mooi uses “Adorable”! It’s super effective!
Mooi such a fun bunny! She was raised in a foster home with cats and dogs, and she got along fine with both. She is outgoing and energetic and would make a wonderful addition to your family! Visit our shelter to meet Mooi!
Mooi! I choose you!
Meet Naomi, the bunny of the week!
Naomi would like to play with you!
Naomi came to us with her sister Mooi (although the two are not bonded and may be adopted separately). After they were born, their owners decided to move and could not keep them. They came to EARS and were raised in a foster home. Naomi is now 9 months old and looking for her forever home!
“What is this thing you’re holding?”
Naomi is a beautiful Lionhead/Dutch mix with striking blue eyes. She can be shy sometimes, but she loves to run around and play. She has a lot of energy (probably because she’s part Dutch)! She needs a home where she can get a lot of exercise and attention.
“I think maybe this ball is too big for me.”
Naomi has been at the shelter for a while and it’s truly incredible that she hasn’t been adopted yet! She’s got the energy of a Dutch bunny and the good looks of a Lionhead. Come to the shelter if you would like to meet Naomi!
Naomi knows she’s gorgeous.
Join us for Bunny Spa Day on May 9th from 12-4 pm at the Bunny Bungalow! Bring your bunnies to get their nails trimmed and pick up some plants to brighten your home for spring (also, just in time for Mother’s Day)! As always, donations are greatly appreciated- we can’t do it without you!
Meet Thelma & Louise– the bunnies of the week!
Thelma & Louise are partners in crime!
Thelma and Louise are sisters that came to EARS from French Creek Animal Rescue. They have only been with us for a few months, but they were at French Creek for a long time. Their mom was rescued from a hoarding situation in Corry along with a lot of other bunnies. The rabbits were being kept in broken down outdoor hutches where they bred continuously; some escaped or were “released”. Thelma and Louise were born at French Creek in April of 2013, and have been in shelters ever since.
Thelma is the getaway driver.
“Look how pretty I am!”
Thelma is a beautiful bunny! She loves to lie in the hay in her litter box. She rarely leaves the litter box, even if you throw hay on top of her and bury her.
Louise is the stylish one.
“Sunglasses are always in fashion.”
Louise is also a gorgeous rabbit. She has grey fur around her eyes that makes her look like she is wearing eyeliner, and her eyelashes are so beautiful it looks like she is wearing mascara! She is more adventurous than her sister, and while she can sometimes be nervous, she is always willing to come and see you when you bring food.
“We’re ready to escape to our forever home!”
Although Thelma and Louise have only been with us a for a short time, they have been waiting for a long time in shelters for their forever home! They are very sweet and supportive sisters- they constantly cuddle together in their litter box. They are beautiful bunnies who deserve a happy, loving home.
It’s been a difficult week at EARS. A few of our bunnies have developed health issues and are receiving medical care. Medical care for rabbits can be quite expensive, as they are considered exotic pets. Our shelter runs entirely on donations, and we want to provide excellent care for our rabbits, so we need your help to do it!
Snow stopped eating and was taken to the vet. It was determined that he had an overgrown molar which was making it difficult for him to eat. The molar was trimmed, but Snow had developed GI stasis in the meantime. He was treated for the stasis and is doing better now.
Magnus hurt his right rear leg while enjoying exercise time out of his crate. He was avoiding use of the leg and was taken to the vet. X-rays showed a fracture, so he is on pain medication until the surgeon can review his case and determine if surgery is necessary.
Midas stopped eating and we noticed that his jaw was swollen. He was taken to a vet in Buffalo, where they determined he had a jaw abscess and will require extensive dental surgery.
In addition to these rabbits, we already care for Mondo and Duchess who have digestive issues and receive daily medication and fluids, as well as a few other rabbits with health problems. Veterinary care for rabbits is expensive, and adds up quickly with so many sick rabbits (especially ones that require surgery). If you would like to make a donation to help us care for the buns, follow the link below:
EARS needs your help! We are currently caring for over 80 rabbits between two buildings, and we need adult volunteers to clean cages and feed the bunnies every day. Cleaning times are usually between 10-2 and evening feeding times are usually between 6-8, but these hours are not set in stone and we can easily accommodate your schedule. Even if you can only volunteer for one hour once a week, we still welcome your help!
If you have any questions, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Gretchen at 814-449-1028.
If you are interested in applying, please fill out the Volunteer Form and contact Gretchen.
Please help us help the bunnies!
Do your bunnies need a handcrafted wooden bed? How about a beautifully made hay feeder/litter box combo? Check out BunsBedsandBeyond on Etsy. Everything is handmade by one of our wonderful volunteers and all proceeds go directly to EARS! Help us help the bunnies by getting toys for your own buns!
Beds are Martha Mae approved!
Paige is the bunny of the week!
Pretty girl Paige is working on her daily beauty routine.
Paige is a 9-10 month old English Lop mix. She was surrendered with her sisters Phoebe and Piper (adopted). Their former owner got them as babies even though her apartment had a no pet policy, and she was forced to get rid of them.
“It’s hard work to be this gorgeous!”
If you’ve never seen an English Lop, you may be surprised at how big they can be. Paige is no exception; she is a whole lot of bunny! She can be shy at times, but usually she’s quite spunky. She loves to have her head rubbed, and you’ll love playing with her giant ears! Paige needs a home that can give her a lot of space to run- be aware that English Lops can jump quite high and easily get out of most X-pens!
“I’m done primping, now I’m ready for my forever home!”
Paige is currently living at our Peach Street location. If you would like to meet her, call Linda at 814-881-7243 to make an appointment!
