Updates from the field

We recently heard an update from Ryan, who adopted Clark (then Alvin) in November:

Clark was brought home to be a companion for my other guinea pig, Colin. We brought Colin to your shelter and he chose Clark out of about three different pigs we tried dating. They both got a little defensive as we got home, but now they are living together in harmony! Clark is such a cuddle bug and loves to curl up and nap in someone's arms or in an old tshirt. I love him so much and I'm so glad your shelter is there to provide the services it does and to unite people with wonderful pets like Clark. Colin and I are both eternally grateful and we know where we will be looking if we need anymore piggy friends!

Miss Dot is the Bunny of the Month

Gentle Miss Dot is looking for her forever Valentine. She arrived at BUNS and immediately gave birth to 8 babies over 3 years ago. She watched as her babies, one by one, found new homes, while Miss Dot, being very shy and afraid, was easily overlooked. Recently, in foster care, she was given a nice cozy bunny bed and lots of one-on-one attention. Miss Dot has blossomed into a beautiful, sensitive rabbit who is happy and trusting if you take it slow in getting to know her.  February is “Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month”; can you give this sweet girl a home?
