Check out the buns waiting for adoption!

The bunnies need YOU!
Can you spare some time to help a bunny down on his luck?

Every Saturday morning, dedicated volunteers come to the shelter to help clean the rabbit’s cages, feed them, fill their water bottles, give them exercise, and groom them. Without these volunteers, the shelter wouldn’t exist. Without them, the rabbit you adopted would not have been saved.

Please come in to volunteer on a Saturday morning. We start cleaning about 10 or 10:30. Depending on how many volunteers come, we are done about noon or 1:00. Even if you were able to come in a couple times a year, it would be a great help. You can call the shelter to let us know you are coming or stop by the shelter.

There is always something better to do on a Saturday morning than get dirty. We all have families, jobs, and other obligations that make it hard to make the time to come in. Everyone you see at the shelter is a volunteer. Everything done for and with the bunnies is all on volunteered time. But taking that time out of our busy lives to help the bunnies is rewarding, and will bring good Bunny Karma!

This is a slightly modified poem I found. I think it is why we do what we do:

I adopted your bunny today.
The one you left at the pound.
The one you had for ten years
And no longer wanted around.

I adopted your bunny today.
Do you know he's lost weight?
Do you know he's scared and depressed
And has lost all faith?

I adopted your bunny today.
He had fleas and a cold,
But don't worry none.
You've unburdened your load.

I adopted your bunny today.
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies
Or was there no reason he couldn't stay?

I adopted your bunny today.
He doesn't play or eat much.
He's very depressed,
But he will learn again to trust.

I adopted your bunny today
And here he will stay.
He's found his forever home
And a warm bed to lay.

I adopted your bunny today
And I will give him all that he could need.
Patience, love, security, and understanding.
Hopefully he will forget your selfish deed
