Melvin

Melvin is one year old Lionhead cross who was found dumped in a community garden in the Sunrise-Hastings neighborhood. He came right up to one of the gardeners who happened to be a long-time VRRA volunteer and she knew right away he had to have been someone’s pet.

Right from day one in foster he has been a very friendly and calm bunny, and is incredibly tidy with his litterbox – even while he was still unneutered!  Melvin loves exploring his area and hopping on an off things. He really enjoys being petted and loves snuggling and grooming his stuffed rabbit. He would probably love to have a nice girl bunny to bond with!

Smudge & Oriel

Smudge is a cute, black dwarf lion head bunny.  He is the softest bunny ever!  He’s approx 6 1/2 yrs old. He’s curious, playful and knows his name is Smudge. He is fine to be held and stroked for a little while but likes to explore and be with Oriel most of the time. He’s very friendly and will follow you around. 

Oriel is a golden tan half Rex about 5 1/2 yrs old. She is a gentle bunny, easy to handle. Oriel has become very overweight and needs someone to watch her diet and make sure she gets lots of exercise. They will be good companion rabbits.

Notes from their current foster:

Smudge and Oriel are the best couple that you will ever have as a bunny lover. If it wasn’t for my husband’s allergy to hay, I’d love to keep them for the rest of their life. Oriel is a cute round bun that was a bit shy at the beginning of arriving at her new home. She got adapted to the environment from the second week on and she would come out to explore our dining room. Compared to Smudge, Oriel is the calmer one, if you like some quiet time of your own, she’d definitely be your best company.

Smudge is a little power generator – we call him “little bull”! He’s always full of energy. If you like dogs, Smudge is on the same level of a little puppy who will chase you wherever you go. He got used to a new home very easily. We have a fully fenced backyard with a patio and lawn behind. Once in a while I would let Smudge free run at the patio where I called “Free Buffet for the Bunnies” and leave the door a little bit open. He always came back to the house by himself, if not, I simply made a “tic, tic, tic” sound, and that would bring him back to where I was immediately. We’ve grown lots of vegetables on our patio. Their favorites are mustard leaves, dill, red leaf amaranth, cilantro, kale, and green leaf part of a cauliflower. Smudge also eats sunflower leaves, basil leaves, peppermint, and shiso leaves. Oriel loves the flower part of the veggies. We also made sure that they ate lots of hay.

Some notes for prospective owners: they do chew cables when they are bored or out of your sight, so make sure you put the cables out of reach or install protections. I put bamboo sticks and timothy sticks for them in the pen, and they would chew them. Smudge runs very fast near you even though he’s so small, so please make sure while walking, don’t step on him. Smudge bites whatever comes nearby without sniffing so just make sure you let him know when entering his territory (which can be inside the X pens or the spot you put him with Oriel together) don’t try to pet him or show him your hands until he calms down. If you need to hold him, make sure you hold him well because once you start lowering him down on the floor, he will try to escape and he might scratch you.

Oriel is a very special girl so you need to give her more time to get to know you and her new home. She didn’t move much at the beginning when we first got her. She became more active when we put her in the X pen out on our lawn late in the afternoon. She looks calm but that doesn’t mean she’s not scared, so try to be patient with her. Hold her gently if you need to. And she will let you put her down without panic.

We only kept them for 2 weeks though they already brought us great joy especially when they got more outgoing and comfortable around us. I’m sure you’re going to find out more by spending more time with them.

Bundito

Hi I’m Bundito!

Scrounging for treats is my game, I’m a foodie. I love to dig around in a dig box to see what I can come up with.

I just never know what I might find- sometimes treats, sometimes new toys. I am what they call a curious bunny, and love to investigate new areas. I like to have lots of hay to munch on and can be found nibbling on my cardboard boxes or tossing around my toys.

I enjoy my space and can be a bit possessive, I’ll grunt to let you know I want to be left alone. I need a bunny experienced home. If you’d like to be my new home please apply to adopt me. 

Tim and Todd

Tim & Todd are super handsome double-maned lion heads.

These two bunny rabbits are friendly brothers but can be shy. They are looking for a bunny experienced home.

Their forever people will need to enjoy spending lots of time grooming these wonderful fluffy buns. Grooming this breed of rabbit is essential. But it’s not hard to groom a rabbit; it’s enjoyable and quite therapeutic!
