Monty (now called Shlomo) was adopted as a companion for Sassy, who seemed quite taken with the big lug on a series of dates at the Rabbit Center.
From the adopter: “We had an unusually rough time bonding Shlomo and Sassy. They had a period of hating each other and then loving each other that stumped many of the bunny experts. But they’ve been doing great now and all of us are happy. Shlomo is a VERY interactive, mellow, sweet boy. He likes nothing better than to flop down next to us and have us pat him and pat him and pat him… Well, maybe he’d choose eating our baseboards over being pet. Not sure. And he adores his Sassy now. (She has more of a taste for plastic.)”
Check out the video of them at home.
Hadley (the lovely gray girl) came into Oakland Shelter already pregnant and gave birth there to two babies. Only Adeline survived. Time has passed, and now Adeline is all grown up. Devoted daughter that she is, she doesn’t want to ever leave her mommy, so these two go as a package deal. And you couldn’t ask for a better pair. They are both really sweet, friendly girls with excellent house manners. If you’re looking for a pair of bunnies who are easy to please and will make all your friends jealous, these are your buns.
Update 2/28/12: Blueberry went home with his new bunny girlfriend and a wonderful human family!
Hi. My name is Blueberry. I’m a young, active boy. I’ve lived most of my life at the Rabbit Center, being spoiled, handled, and loved. I’m a fool for attention. I have an impeccable time clock. At precisely 3 in the afternoon, I rattle my toy keys. Same time, everyday. This works like a charm. The staff comes in, tells me how cute I am, and gives me attention! Perfect! I’m young and have lots of energy. I love digging, running, and getting out of my condo. I dig and chew on my towel, then I bunch it up, and play some more. When it’s dinner time, the staff knows to remove my food dish to put in the pellets, or I send the pellets flying. Everywhere! I love my hay and greens too, but I don’t like blueberries.
Update 1/22/12: Thor was adopted today and is finally going to his forever home with a wonderful family!
Little Thor recently lost his beloved brother, Loki. We’ve been spoiling him silly to take his mind off his loss, and he seems to appreciate it. He’s still just as energetic and outgoing.
He is about 6 months old and just full of energy. I guess eventually he’ll settle down, but right now he doesn’t stay in one place for longer than a split second. Mostly that’s because he wants to climb all over any people within range – he just can’t contain himself around people! He wants to meet everyone!
This guy would be a great family bunny. Just be prepared for a few months of adolescent adventurousness.
Update 1/2012: Sojourner has been adopted!
Sojourner is a lovely and sweet girl. She came in with a bit of motor oil on her (yuck!), but she’s got herself all cleaned up now. She doesn’t want to be around cars ever again! It’s a comfy, clean house for her!
Sojourner is a nice big armful of bunny and very huggable. She keeps a clean pen and generally likes stretching out to full length and enjoying the comforts of home. She is very outgoing and personable–a real people bunny! She loves exploring and investigating new things. She’d be a great family bunny.
Gracie’s back! Our sweet Gracie was adopted out a couple of months ago, but the home didn’t work out. She says next time she’d prefer no kids…
Gracie is an easy-going girl who has done well on dates. She is easy to get along with, both for humans and rabbits. Like most rabbits, she doesn’t do well in noisy, busy environments, but otherwise she’s easy to please.
Rosebud was born at the Rabbit Center on Feb. 20, 2011, when her mother unexpectedly gave birth to a second litter (she was taken from a breeder confiscation in Sacramento). She is an absolutely stunning little lionhead girl. Rosebud needs daily grooming to keep her beautiful long fur from matting, but she is very easy to handle. And despite her disapproving expression, she’s a very sweet little girl who gets along well with people and rabbits.
Update 2/2012: Rosebud is very happy in her new home with Joseph, and has even made friends with a chinchilla named Chili! At first, Chili was scared of Rosebud’s (now Rosie) advances, and Rosie even seemed embarrassed by her own forwardness. Rosie is very affectionate with her new family and enjoys her new life!
UPDATE: Xena (now called Ella) is living happily with Sandy & Kent Parshall, and is gradually getting acquainted with Finnegan (also from HRS). Finnegan reports that she’s a wonderful groomer! Watch now
UPDATE: Xena went home with HRS’s Sandy as a companion to Finnegan. She is very happy in her new home and has proved to be surprisingly mild-mannered.
Xena is a courageous and strong-willed girl who demands respect from the humans around her. She does not like just anybody approaching her pen and will quickly tell you so. However, she loves petting, and so long as you obey her rules she is happy to sit with you for as long as you’d like. She has excellent house manners and would really do best as a free-range rabbit, where she doesn’t need to worry about territory. Once out of her pen, she is mild-mannered and easy to get along with.
Wolfie is a spirited little boy. He is very active and loves running around and getting into things. Sitting on a lap is not his thing. Nor does he like being held–he’d much rather have all four on the floor. He’s energetic and would be a good match for younger humans. Wolfie is about a year old.
Update 1/22/12: Tahiti has gone to her forever home! She is now happily bonded to Simon, an older gentleman bunny, and gets lots of attention and grooming from Simon and her human parents! Aren’t they a cute pair? Congratulations, Tahiti!
Tahiti has spent her entire life in animal shelters and would really like to have her own home. She’s a quiet girl, perhaps because she’s never had much opportunity to run around.
