Bring your bunny to Hoppy Hour!

You and your bunnies are invited to the very first BUNS Hoppy Hour. 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 March 21, from 1-4pm on the Humane Society Lawn, at 5399 Overpass Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93111. Admission is $10 per rabbit, who must be healthy and 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!

Adopt-a-Rescued-Guinea Pig Month

In 2002 the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) declared March as Adopt-a-Rescued-Guinea Pig celebration month.  The month is devoted to raising awareness about guinea pigs in shelters and about pet cavies in general.   Though we are called Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter we also care for and find forever homes for homeless guinea pigs.  Come by and meet some of our cute piggies such as King, a beautiful boy with white fur.
