Rabbits make wonderful family house pets. They can be social and
affectionate (like dogs) and they are clean (they use a litter box and
don't need baths) like cats, yet they are nearly always overlooked at
shelters, and are being euthanized by the thousands all over the country.
Please come visit us and the shelter bunnies. You can - Adopt a rabbit,
learn more about your own rabbit(s), learn about our volunteer
opportunites, or just sit with the bunnies and learn how wonderful they
If you are interested in adopting a rabbit or if you want to learn more
about your current rabbit(s) - or if you are just interested in learning
more about rabbits in general, please drop by and say hello.
Summer Time heat is a killer!! Any temperatures over 80 degrees can kill your bunny, and Southern California is reaching record highs!! Please read our tips on keeping your bunny cool here.
And Please think about the Shelter bunnies, who have no A/C and are stuck outside!! Let's get them into homes! Pooka (pic) was dumped as a little baby at the shelter and on July 22nd, he succumed to the heat. Bunnies are NOT outdoor animals. Read his memorial page here.
R.I.P. my dearest Pooka. You deserved so much better than a shelter for a home...
THANK YOU PETCO! This heat wave is wreaking havoc on shelter animals and our shelter
bunnies are not doing well at all. We have been able to accomodate many,
but we needed more enclosures to get more of the bunnies to safety. PetCo
stepped right up to the bat with an emergency donation of x-pens and we
can't thank them enough!
Thanks to Paul, Sharon and Maryann for making it happen! You
are helping us save more lives!
Fur is Funky and in Fashion? Say What?
across the country, indeed all across the fashion world, rabbit
fur is making a comeback. Nearly every clothes store and clothes
catalog seems to have rabbit fur coats or rabbit fur accessories,
and on Oct. 11th NEWSWEEK ran an article titled "Fur is Fun
Again." Fun for whom?
Rabbits and other animals raised for fur live horrible short lives
and then they are killed either by electrocution (anal or genital)
or by smashing their heads against a wall. They are often not even
dead when the skinning begins.
Corner is dead set against fur as fashion. We strongly believe that
the only place rabbit fur belongs is on the rabbit! We encourage
all animal lovers to contact the stores and companies who sell rabbit
fur items and ask them to stop.
frequently hear people say "No one has the right to tell me
what to do. It's called freedom" Fine. But we say "Just
because you CAN do something, it doesn't mean you SHOULD. That's

animals involved, check out these sites:
us - on behalf of the bunnies and other suffering creatures - THANK
you Help These Rabbits?
Corner desperately needs your financial support. Even a small donation
helps and is very much appreciated. Please keep reading to learn
about just two special rabbits who need your financial support.
Sophie is about 9 months old and was
dumped at the shelter with a case of ear mites. She looked scrawny
and underfed, but she seemed to be eating okay. The ear mites cleared
up quickly. Then we figured out (a few days later) why she was underweight
- when she developed a large, fast-growing abscess on her left cheek.
scooped up Sophie and took her to the vet right away. She had the
abscess surgery, the tooth was removed and antibiotic-impregnated
beads were implanted at the abscess site. She began eating right
away after the surgery, almost as soon as she awakened, but because
the abscess had been brewing for so long (how long we have no idea)
she had about 10 days of GI stasis-related problems and was on all
sorts of meds to keep her eating and defecating.
are pleased to report that Sophie is now off all meds except the
Durapen, which she will be on for 6 more weeks in the hopes that
we can stave of any further abscesses. She is super super friendly,
is smart and craves attention, eats like crazy (begs when we walk
by!) and is available for adoption at the beginning of March.
operation, in-hospital care and following medical care are costing
a lot of money, most of it still owed. Can you help us out with
Jack (pictures coming soon) was dumped on our doorstep with severely
overgrown incisors (front teeth). He was filthy, hungry, skinny
and altogether pitiful. We rushed him to the vet immediately, of
course, to have those teeth taken care of and for an overall check-up.
It was then that we found out that Jack also has an enlarged heart.
needs to see a vet every few weeks to have his teeth trimmed and
needs on-going medication and frequent vet visits. This is very
expensive (initially in excess of 1800 dollars) and we need your
is a super sweet boy and has gained weight since he has been with
us at Zooh Corner. His coat is no longer dirty and dull and his
breathing no longer so labored. In short, Jack is finally getting
the care any animal deserves. Now we would also like to find a special
person to take him and love him and be his own personal friend.

Rabbits Need Your Help!
of the shelters we work with recently had a dump of 11 rabbits.
With no available single-space cages left, the rabbits were put
in the “farm” area. Unfortunately, the rabbits are in
a large group of mixed genders – un-spayed and un-neutered.
is a disaster in the making and we need your help to stop it.
do need more hutches, but do not have enough space to put up as
many as are needed for the rabbits, so many of the rabbits need
to move out of the shelter immediately – or they will be euthanized.

- Many Rabbits Soon To Die
21 August 03 - Still many rabbits at the shelter
needing forever homes or temporary foster. Even MORE have come in,
so we know that sometime soon they will start euthanizing rabbits
to make space. The farm rabbits, supposedly "wild & un-adoptable"
are in the most jeopardy. They are friendly and beautiful rabbits
and do not deserve to die because some backyard pet store rabbit
breeder dumped them in a park.
have several more of these lovely rabbits, rex mixes, spayed, health
checked, flea and mite free and ready for adoption. PLEASE - can
anyone find room in their heart and home for even one more rabbit?

12 RABBITS SAVED FROM DEATH BY MULTI RESCUE COOPERATION!!!
30 August 03 - Wow...what can we say Heather, Lori,
Yuri... you are amazing!
was the 11th hour for 12 of the rabbits at the shelter and Carrie
and I (Alex) were a wreck. We'd been working days and days, hours
on end to find placement for 16 rabbits, who were due to be euthanized,
at the already rabbit-packed San Gabriel Valley Humane Society.
But the shelters and rescues in Southern California are all just
overwhelmed with rabbits - more-so than we have ever been! What
continued getting all the females spayed (only one mamma beat us
to the punchline and gave birth to 4 darling kits, pics coming soon)
and making sure everyone got medical attention, as needed. We made
phone calls, put up fliers, sent out pleas, but everyone is so full...

House Rabbit Society. OUR HEROS!! Heather worked a miracle and found
enough folks to take twelve (count them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5......12!)

amazing? So, on Tuesday, Carrie and I loaded 12 rabbits into 9 carriers,
Lori rented a van through Monterey HRS (thank you Susan!) and we
all hit the road for San Luis Obispo, our agreed upon meeting place.
What an exciting day!
met up in a shady parking lot and made the rabbit exchange, letting
each bun out to stretch his or her legs before the second leg of
a long journey to safety. We gathered a bit of a crowd! Check out

folks from Rabbit Haven and Monterey HRS. We can't say it often
enough: You are all wonderful, amazing and compassionate friends!

convenience, you have helped prove once again what amazing creatures
we humans can be if we just show a little compassion and work together.

day, a Playboy Playmate's Rich But Not-So-Famous roommate went off
on an extended trip to Europe. The next day, Ms. Playmate heard
a scuffling noise in the Rich Roomie's bedroom. She went in to investigate
and discovered two adorable baby bunnies left in a box with no food
or water! Ms. Roomie never even bothered to let anyone know they
were there. Thank goodness our Playmate friend was a kind person
and knew they needed good care! Through a mutual friend she made
sure the rabbits were taken to safety. Click here

need and deserve.

toys so the buns have something to do to while away the long hours
waiting for people to love them.
