Meet the bunnies of the week- Caesar, Julius, Magnus, Aphrodite, Athena, and Persephone!

All six when they were only a few months old.

All six when they were only a few months old.

These six adorable bunnies are all brothers and sisters! Caesar, Julius, and Magnus are boys and live separately (and can be adopted individually). Aphrodite, Athena, and Persephone are girls and all three live together happily! The babies were brought in by a woman who took in four rabbits that were dumped onto her property- the two females were pregnant. One litter went to French Creek Animal Rescue, and the other litter came to EARS. The “babies” are now 9 months old, all are spayed or neutered, and they are looking for forever homes!

Magnus was featured previously as a special needs bunny. He hurt his back leg, and now has a bit of a limp. He is not in pain, not on any medications, and is able to get around easily. Magnus is one of the friendliest bunnies you will ever meet. He loves to cuddle and be held, and he really loves attention. He is a great bunny and he needs a forever home that can give him lots of love!

Wouldn’t you love to take this cute face home with you?

Julius is a cute, energetic little man. He begs for attention when you walk by, and as soon as you open the door, he runs around and does binkies at stop speed! He is the binky king! He looks just like a wild bunny, but he’s so friendly and cuddly. It’s impossible not to love this little guy!

Aphrodite, Persephone, and Athena are beautiful girls who love to cuddle.

Aphrodite, Persephone, and Athena are sweet sisters. They are shy around people, but with time and patience they will warm up to you. They do not mind being held. All three girls love to snuggle together. They tend to sleep in a big bunny pile! They are so adorable together, every time you look at them you have to suppress a squeal!

Aphrodite is the goddess of beauty and love!

Fosters Needed!

EARS bunnies need your help!

I WANT YOU

Our shelter is currently caring for a few special needs bunnies that could really benefit from more attention! We are looking for people living in Erie with bunny experience to foster. We know that caring for an animal with special needs can be a strain financially, so EARS will cover all medical expenses and will provide supplies for the rabbit’s care. All of our special needs bunnies are so sweet, and they need the love and attention that only a home can provide!

Lambchop & Hushpuppy- very much in love!

Lambchop & Hushpuppy

Lambchop and Hushpuppy are a bonded pair and they are so in love! They were rescued from a horrible hutch situation and they have been at the shelter for about a year. Lambchop has recently been dragging her back legs and we took her to the vet who believes it is due to aggravation of an old injury. She is receiving cold laser therapy and acupuncture and does not seem to be in any pain. She gets around by using her front legs, and she does not require any medications. Lambchop and Hushpuppy are both fixed and are very sweet. They have never known the comfort of a loving home. Won’t you consider fostering them?

Magnus (aka "Bugs")

Magnus (aka “Bugs”)

Magnus is a wonderful and loving 9 month old bun. A few months ago, he was enjoying exercise time and got a little too excited and hurt the knee of one of his back legs. The vet has determined that there is nothing else to be done at this point. He is not in pain or on any medications; he has a small limp, but is still able to get around. He is really a sweet guy- he loves attention and loves to be held! He has seemed a little depressed lately, and we would really love to get him into a foster home! Please consider fostering Magnus!

Another special needs bunny we would like to find a foster for is named Cali (no picture). She is a beautiful black and tan girl. Before she was rescued, she suffered a traumatic event in which her tail was torn off and left her with some nerve damage. The only extra care she needs is being wiped with antibiotic wipes twice a day- it is quite simple. Cali is such a sweet girl! Will someone take her in and give her the love she deserves?

If you are interested in fostering (or adopting) any of these special bunnies, please contact Linda at 814-881-7243.

Bunnies of the Week- Abel & Ollie!

Meet the bunnies of the week- Abel and Ollie!

Abel and Ollie are the newest Avengers!

Abel and Ollie are the newest Avengers!

Abel and Ollie are bonded brothers. Their former owner had two bunnies that she thought were both female until one had a litter (we hear this story a lot- pet stores are not good at determining the sex of rabbits). She didn’t separate them quickly enough after the first litter was born and the bunny got pregnant again. The first litter, five boys, came to EARS. They were raised in a foster home and named Abel, Dobby, Ollie, Pitri, and Theo (together, their initials spell ADOPT). Abel and Ollie are the last of the litter still at the shelter! They are just under one year old. They are relatively small, Netherland Dwarf and Mini Rex mixes (although they do not have the classic Rex fur).

Abel wants to be a leader like Cap!

Abel is a sweet and cuddly little ball of energy! He is incredibly friendly- he loves head scratches and attention. Just let him out of his crate, sit back, and watch the adorable binkies! He is very playful and fun and impossibly lovable.

Ollie is helping Thor in the fight against Ultron.

Ollie is slightly bigger than his brother (which is how we tell them apart). Like his brother, he is also super friendly! He loves to snuggle and have his head scratched. He also does a lot of binkies when he is allowed to run free, which are always adorable and entertaining to watch! He is so happy and energetic and he needs a home where he can be showered with love and attention!

"We will use our powers of cute to win the battle!"

Abel and Ollie are very sweet boys. They are so friendly and happy, it’s amazing that they haven’t been adopted yet! They do so many binkies together they should just be called the binky brothers! These boys would love a forever home where they will have room to showcase their incredible binky skills. Visit EARS to meet Abel and Ollie!

Bunny of the Week- Harriet!

Meet Harriet, the bunny of the week!

Harriet is a punk rocker!

Harriet is a punk rocker- just look at that hair!

Harriet is the daughter of Maverick (adopted) and Rogue (at French Creek). Maverick and Rogue were released outside by their owner along with 12 other rabbits. They were the only two to survive the cold Erie winter of 2013. When they were rescued, and Rogue had her babies, she was so stressed that she started to kill them (not a common behavior for rabbits). Luckily, Ginny‘s babies were only a week old so we put Harriet with her and Ginny accepted her as one of her own. Harriet has been at EARS since April of 2014 (she is just over a year old).

She's a punk punk... punk rocker!

She’s a punk punk… punk rocker!

Harriet is a spunky Lionhead with a big attitude. She is quite gorgeous with her blue eyes, white mane, and lightning pattern on her head. Harriet has the endless energy that comes with being a young rabbit and, like most rabbits, doesn’t enjoy being stuck in a crate all day. She is much happier when she is out of her crate and has room to run. She has so much energy and needs a lot of exercise to work it off. She would do best as a free roam rabbit. It is always entertaining to watch her zoom around and do binkies at top speed!

"Why yes, I am gorgeous!"

“Why yes, I am gorgeous!”

Harriet can be cage territorial and gets annoyed when people mess with her stuff. She needs a home that has experience with rabbits. She would not be a good fit for a home with young children. Harriet needs someone who will provide her with love and understanding, someone who will give her the attention she needs, but also respect her boundaries. If you think you’re up to the challenge, come to the shelter to visit Harriet!

"Growling is just my way of saying I love you."

“Are you done taking pictures yet? I want to go play!”

Bunny of the Week- Mother’s Day Special

Happy Mother’s Day! We decided to celebrate by featuring all of our bunny moms at the shelter (and their children)!

Ginny & Mary

Ginny & Mary are wonderful mommy buns!

Ginny & Mary are bonded mommy buns!

This bonded pair are both mothers! Mary is the mother of North (adopted) and Carolina; Ginny is the mother of Heidi, Milton (adopted), Hershey, and the adopted mother of Harriet. They came to us from a rescue in North Carolina in April of 2014. They were both wonderful moms- Ginny even took in Harriet and cared for her as her own baby. Ginny and Mary went through pregnancy together and raised their babies side by side. With their children all grown up now, Ginny and Mary are looking forward to a loving forever home of their own.

Penelope

Penelope is such a cute mommy bun- just look at that little white nose!

Penelope is such a cute mommy bun- just look at that little white nose!

Penelope has been at EARS since March of 2013. She was one of the bunnies rescued from the hoarding situation in Corry. She was rescued with a litter of 6 babies (all since adopted), and was also pregnant at the time. She gave birth to another litter, including Rudy & Claire! She has given birth to so many EARS bunnies, she is basically the mother of EARS! Penelope is one of the sweetest and most gentle rabbits you will ever meet! She loves to cuddle and be pet. She is a special needs rabbit- her right eye is blind and she requires periodic vet check-ups. Penelope is bonded to Dell, and they love each other very much. Now all they need is a forever home!

Hermione is a new arrival at EARS. She was found outside with her son Neville and the two were brought to us. Hermione might be pregnant, so we are waiting to find out! She is a big, gorgeous bunny and is very sweet and playful! She will be available for adoption after the pregnancy watch is over.

Sugar

Sugar is such a great bunny mom!

Sugar is a mommy bun who has been through a lot!

Sugar has been at EARS for almost two years (since June 2013)! Sugar did not have a happy life before coming to EARS. She was found in a hotel desk drawer by a girl who took her home and bred her repeatedly, selling the babies to neighbors. When she found out the neighbors were eating the babies or feeding them to snakes, the girl then started to sell Sugar’s babies to pet stores. Eventually she surrendered Sugar to EARS along with six babies (all in bad shape). With some TLC, Sugar and her babies recovered. Five of those babies have since been adopted, but Jackson stayed with his mommy! Sugar has been through so much, and yet she is still so sweet and loving! She is a great mom to her son Jackson (although she does push him out of the way for food). A forever home would be the happy ending they deserve.

Jackson is a momma's boy!

Peach came to EARS a few months ago. She was brought in with her son Sunshine. The person who surrendered them said that she found them by the side of the road in a cardboard box. Peach is a beautiful orange/cream/white bunny. She is a little shy, but she will warm up to you if you put in the time. Sunshine just moved out on his own, and Peach has an empty nest. Won’t you share your home with this sweet mom?

Bunnies of the Week- Simon & Garfunkel!

Simon & Garfunkel are the bunnies of the week!

Simon & Garfunkel are adorable brothers!

Simon & Garfunkel are opposites!

Simon & Garfunkel are cute brothers who came to EARS from French Creek Animal Rescue in Waterford. They were rescued from a hoarding situation in Corry in April of 2013. They have been at a shelter for over 2 years! These poor boys have never known the comfort of a loving home.

Simon is such a cute little guy.

Simon is such a cute little guy.

Simon is a cute, spunky man. He’s a small bunny but he’s got a big attitude! He loves to run around and play with his brother. He’s so sick of being in a shelter! He just wants a place to call his own.

Garfunkel is such a friendly guy!

Garfunkel is such a friendly guy!

Garfunkel is very handsome, and he’s also one of the friendliest rabbits you’ll ever meet! He loves attention and loves to be pet. He is such a cuddlebun! He would love to snuggle up with his favorite human in a forever home.

"We've waited for a really long time."

“We’ve waited for a really long time.”

These adorable brothers have been in shelters their whole lives. They deserve a loving home as much as any other pet. They need room to exercise and a person (or people) to love them. If you think you may be interested in giving these adorable boys a forever home, make an appointment to visit them (call Linda at 814-881-7243).
