December Hoppy Hour

Bring your fuzzy friend, December 16 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM and give them an opportunity to socialize with other rabbits! Socialization is a very important part of overall rabbit welfare, and a Hoppy Hour is the perfect opportunity to let your bunny 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. 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 bunny, so please join us for an afternoon of fun!

Bunny of the Month

Miss Denim is a beautiful Chinchilla breed rabbit with a great personality... and our Bunny of the Month for December!

She is a curious girl who loves her time as the "run-around bunny" at the shelter. She is a good hostess, and may even stop to receive treats (and pets, too!).  Most of all, Miss Denim is looking for the perfect human to make her life complete!

Head to our Bunny of the Month page to learn who our Guinea Pig of the Month is...

Twenty-Five Years of BUNS

We had our 25th Anniversary Party on November, 18, 2017.  Our intrepid volunteers helped to organize and host the party at Earl Warren show grounds, in a lovely grassy area with tasty bbq with the amazing BUNS supporters and critters.  BUNS alumni joined new friends while bunnies and guinea pigs enjoyed an outdoor adventure on the grass with tunnels, hideways, treats, and each other to  play with. Even some BUNS animals got sponsored to join the fun, which always makes their wait for a forever home so much more pleasent!

Hoppy Hour was well attended by 75 bunnies that delighted all the humans watching! Pignic piggy’s had fun playing and munching on grass and treats! 

A professional photo booth with fun props was always very busy photographing attendees critters.  The sale and raffle money raised will help with so much for bunnies and piggys that need medical care.  Andrea Bratt came to help us with her sister Heidi Bratt selling many fun items and hosting bunny bowling and kissing booth! We were delighted that our founder Dorothy Deil came to enjoy the party and dedicated an exercise pen, complete with bunny plaque, in her name at BUNS! 

We've had a great 25 years, and now look to the furutre to provide another 25 years of service for the animals and people in our community. We thank our community, adopters, and donors for the attendance and support you have given BUNS! We could not do it without you!
