Hoppy Hour, June 4

Join us on June 4 2016, from 1:30-3:30pm. Bring your fuzzy friend 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!

Hay Racks for your Rabbit

Rabbits and guinea pigs need fresh hay and a lot of it. It’s common to use hay as the bedding of the litter box since they often like to munch while “taking care of business.” While this is helpful to both us and them, if that hay becomes too wet or soiled it lose its appeal as food. It’s helpful to have an alternate source of hay available that is always clean. A great solution is to use a “hay rack” which keeps the hay off the ground and away from moisture, dirt, etc. If you enjoy making things or are looking for a fun do-it-yourself project for your family, you can find a variety of innovative and easy-to-build designs in this article from Bunny Approved

Who's Watching the Pets?

Going on Vacation? Who’s watching the pets?

Plan ahead: Include your pets while making your vacation plans and reservations.  Reservations for pet sitters?  Absolutely. Holidays and summers are peak demand time for pet sitters. They fill up quickly. Make your pet sitter reservations the same day you make your travel reservations. If you need to find a pet sitter, begin the search well before you plan to go.
