I had pruned our apple tree this week, so I took all the pruning up with me as treats for the bunnies. They absolutely loved it, and it was a good way to earn some trust points with the adult rabbits. I also bought quite a few wicker baskets and wooden blocks for them to play with.
The rescue is working hard to get all the bunnies spayed and neutered, still more are being born every day. Though, now that they've been separated by sex for a few weeks that should stop soon.
I took some pictures of the newborns, I'll post them as well as many others.
It's amazing to see the bunnies warm up to people the more we sit and work with them. I spent quite a bit of time with the adult rabbits today trying to socialize them a bit more in hopes that they'll be adoptable too.
But I know what you're all here for...you want the pics, which I'll post by age...so without further ado I present
These were in one of the runs outside, they're being left with mom because they have a higher chance of survival if left alone until they're older...
These two aren't actually related (as you can tell by the size difference)...The brown and white one's mom died, so they put him in with the black one and his mom. The mom's fostering him very well despite the age difference.
These little guys are two litters, once again the mom of one litter died and the second is being fostered by another mom. The foster bunnies are kept under close surveillance inside...
This is Shawn, he's a Vet Tech with Best Friends, and is out from Utah. We were working together today to separate the older babies....adolescents...from the younger ones.
Here I am covered in baby bunnies.....so many bunnies, so few papaya treats...
The babies all gathering for water...not an important pic per say, but too cute not to post
Two bunnies sharing hay...
Give me more papaya!
This little girl was just too cute...and one of the friendlier adult bunnies. The even ate right out of my hand, but ran away before I could pet her.
Here's a group of adult bunnies showing how friendly they can be....to each other...
This little bunny would chew on the apple twig I offered him, but only if I didn't move and stayed as far away as possible
This was a very sweet group of adults that would not come near me, but also didn't scatter when I came in the run...
Here are a few random pics of adult bunnies that need adopting
This little bunny's name is Butterscotch. She had an abscess on her back, and from her ears you can tell she's been in a few fights, but it's better now. She became pretty cuddly while undergoing treatment and now needs to find a good forever home.
These are some shelter's they're in the process of building for the buns in the larger runs....they have ramps up to the top so bunnies can jump and climb.
Anyway, that's all for now....don't forget to check out the Best Friend's web page and donate if you can!
