National Day of Giving - The Carrot Tribune - December 2019

The Carrot Tribune

 

Support April on this National Day of Giving

April was found in Santa Barbara’s Alice Keck Park on Easter morning 2019. She was emaciated, coated in urine, infested by mites, had recently given birth with milk still leaking, and was terrified of humans.

April was nursed back to health with skill, patience and love from her BUNS foster parents who showered her with love and gained her trust.

Now that April is back at BUNS, healthy and happy, please DONATE to BUNS to help April and dozens like her find their forever homes.

Hoppy Hour and Pignic

This month's Hoppy Hour and Pignic is Sunday December 22 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. So bring your fuzzy friend 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. 

We'll be at 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.

Please join us for an afternoon of fun!

Our registration/waiver form is available online! Print it out before you come to save time at Hoppy Hour and Pignic registration! (If you've filled one out before, note that we've consolidated the Rabbit and Guinea Pig forms) You can download fill out out a form before coming:

Guinea Pig of the Month

Padrillio ("Pod" to his friends!) is a sweet piggy boy with a cute and sometimes bewildered expression (probably wondering why he is still at the shelter, when he knows he has so much to offer some lucky human!) He is a very observant piggy, and is always keen to receive treats and praise. Pod has one wish this holiday season - a wonderful forever home!

Our Amazon Wishlist

Want to give a present to the bunnies and guinea pigs? You can!

The critters nominated Reese to update their wish list, but he just wrote down "nanners." So, we helped out a bit and updated the wish list with a few more useful items.

Remember that while you are shopping on Amazon, you can designate Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter as your charity. Then when you shop on Smile.Amazon.com, a portion of your purchase price will be donated to BUNS.

They're all on our BUNS Santa Barbara wish list on Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/15YGZ5VSH22TP/ref=cm_go_nav_hz
