Baby Bunny Naming Contest

In July BUNS got 29 baby bunnies! Some came in with their Mama and others were little surprises born at the shelter. We're so busy taking care of the little ones we don't have time to think of names. We need your help!

Beatrix delivered 7 adorable harlequin babies on July 9th and BUNS would like to give you the opportunity to name the babies!  The only rule is that you must have names for boys and girls. Email the name ideas to kimmyswann@bunssb.org. Please follow our pictures of all the babies on our Instagram page and our Facebook page. BUNS has a lot of work ahead of us with so many babies, and any contributions to help with their care are gratefully accepted.

August Hoppy Hour

Bring your fuzzy friend, August 25 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM and give them an opportunity to socialize with other rabbits and guinea pigs! Socialization is a very important part of overall rabbit and guinea pig welfare, and a Hoppy Hour is the perfect opportunity to let your fuzzy one play with others. 

Hoppy Hour will take place on the Humane Society Lawn, at 5399 Overpass Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93111. Admission is $10 per rabbit or guinea pig. All animals must be healthy and rabbits must have been spayed or neutered at least 30 days in advance.

We'll be providing light refreshments for both you and your critter, so please join us for an afternoon of fun!

Bunnies of the Month

Such a beautiful pair of bunnies! Dilly is a Florida White mix breed and Dally is a Tan mix breed rabbit. Both girls are a little shy, but are sweet and active, and really enjoy their time exercising. They appreciate treats and pets, once you've earned their trust, and a quiet, serene environment would be ideal for this bonded pair.  Dilly and Dally are hoping to find their forever home and loving humans someday very soon!
