My family had the pleasure of fostering Veronica for a short period of time. Although she is shy, she is extremely even tempered and very tolerant even when exposed to other bunnies. Veronica isn’t bonded right now with another rabbit, but she would make a wonderful mate. A good match for her would be a neutered male or spayed female with a calm disposition. With the right amount of patience and attention, Veronica will thrive and start to explore her surroundings. We noticed the more exposure she had to every day household noises, the less timid she became. She loves to be petted and is meticulous with her litter box habits.

My husband and I have been fostering Bamboo for a short time now, and we’re really enjoying having him around.  In a lot of ways, he’s the ideal house bunny.  He started out very timid, but as he’s gotten to know us he’s really come out of his shell.  He’s a curious little guy, and loves to explore the kitchen and living room.  He absolutely loves playing with his favorite toy, which is just a standard brown paper grocery bag.  He seems to think it’s some sort of playhouse.

When he’s done doing a bunch of crazy binkies, he squats right down for pets and won’t move until you do.  He doesn’t mind being held, in fact sometimes he seems to enjoy it.

Bamboo loves his pets.

He also loves his veggies, eats plenty of hay, and has good litter box habits.  He’s having fun with us, but needs someone to love him full time.  Won’t you take this cute little blue eyed boy home with you?

UPDATE 12/2/09: Buck has been adopted as a sanctuary bun. Due to the time and effort his new mom has put into his rehabilitation, he is now able to go up and down the stairs. This is a HUGE accomplishment for Buck!
10/16/09: Buck is in his new home and has already become friends with one of the resident buns. I will be going up to see him next week and to show his new “mom” how to perform physical theraphy on him to help strengthen his body and limbs. Pics to follow….

10/8/09 UPDATE: Buck has gone to a potential forever home today. We couldn’t be happier for him!!!

8/22/09 UPDATE: While back in foster care (after his accident), Buck was bonded to another “special needs” bu,n Humphrey. Unfortunately, Humphrey just passed away. He was a lot older and had some health issues. Buck REALLY needs a home and a human friend in his time of need. Is that you?

Hi, my name is Buck. I was found in April as a stray along with a bunch of other bunnies. The kind people at HRN rescued me and the others and soon I was in a nice environment receiving regular meals and love. I was finally adopted in June as a potential friend for another bunny. I was so excited at the possibility of having a friend! An unfortunate accident occurred and I broke my back.

After being looked at by the vet, I came back into the care of HRN and got the TLC that I needed to possibly help heal my back. Amazingly, I am doing rather well now. I can’t quite hop, but I can get around. My foster mom thinks I’d be a great candidate for a cart, as my front thumpers are very strong. I can sit and hold myself up and even move around a bit. I have a great appetite and love to be pet. My only problem is umm… keeping myself clean. I could use a little bit of help in that area and it’s kind of embarrassing. Oy!

But otherwise, I’m a young, vibrant bun with lots of love to offer that one special human. I won’t let you down, I promise. Those who meet me say that I’m very sweet and I think I am too. I just want a chance at a forever home and to be loved like all the other bunnies that get adopted. Is that you?

You can view my video here and see that I really can move around even with my disability:

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
Yours truly,
Buck
