Hop Over to Hoppy Hour!

We have another Hoppy Hour this month! Join us Saturday, October 22 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. 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!

A Salad a Day...

A salad is much more than food. Salads enrich your rabbit’s life. A salad provides new scents, new sights, and new tastes. If you are clever, it can offer puzzles to solve and several hours of entertainment.

Our house rabbits usually receive a pile of salad greens once or twice a day in the same place. And, if your rabbits are like mine the salad is gone in less than 30 minutes. What can we do to make our salads more exciting?

Head over to our website to learn all about how to make lunchtime more exciting for your fuzzy companion!

Bunnies are Making Friends at Hoppy Hour

Hoppy Hour has been a hit for all the Santa Barbara community bunnies! All the participants have enjoyed social playtime with other buns, and over time many beautiful friendships have emerged. Social opportunities are beneficial to all the participants, and have lasting impressions on the bunnies who attend.

 Dyllon  and Lilly are a pair of BUNS bunnies that have been sponsored for the last five Hoppy Hours. This pair was very shy at their fist few times. As the pair started to get more comfortable at Hoppy Hour they started to frolic and become friends with other bunnies. Dyllon now loves to lounge, get groomed, and hang out at the veggie buffet. Lilly loves to binky all over the Hoppy Hour arena and lounge with multiple bunnies in the shady relaxing zone.

 Dyllon and Lilly are not alone, many bunnies find confidence and friendship at Hoppy Hour. Mary, another shelter bunny, grooms every bunny she can. If she is not permitted to groom a bunny she chases them away offended… such a little minx! Boogie Woogie is another frequent Hoppy Hour attendee and all the bunnies come and observe her flowing locks of fur like she is the rabbit Marilyn Monroe. The alumni that come continue to form friendships with other bunnies and frequently relax in groups.

Many of the bunnies that come are shy at first, but they always seem to make bunny friends if they keep coming back. The bunnies play and binky, and generally act like one big group of extended friends and family! 

So don’t hesitate to hop on over to future Hoppy Hours! If you don’t have a bunny to bring consider brightening the day of a shelter bun by sponsoring a ticket for one (or two) of them.  Bunnies give the event two ears up. Even the humans have a wonderful time laughing at all the fun shenanigans!
