It was pretty quiet at the shelter this week, but we don’t mind a little quiet — especially given this week’s events.
Shelter bun Polly was adopted and taken home, and newcomer George joined us. George is a dark and handsome gentleman with impeccable manners, and his black fur has the shininess of a shampoo commercial. So don’t hate him because he’s beautiful…Spread the word that he’s available for adoption!
Newcomer to the HRN shelter, George has a touch of mystery about him.
Mostly what we did at the shelter this week was keep calm and carry on, and bunnies are really helpful with this.

The HRN shelter had two adoptions within days of each other this week. Buttons and Chuck went to their forever homes, and we assume their new families are already in love with them.
Currently still at the shelter are Buttons’ brother, Wooley, and Chuck’s brother, Simon. Simon and Wooley are two of the shelter’s cuddliest bunnies, and FYI they’re both available for adoption.

Much less exciting but still important is the bunny “grooming” table that the shelter acquired this week. Not originally designed for bunnies or for grooming, this secondhand end table has been repurposed. Its surface is big enough to perch a bunny on, and having the bunny on a table instead of the floor should make brushing a little easier for the volunteers.
HRN volunteer Lauren and HRN shelter bun Simon take the grooming table for a spin. One of them is not having fun.
Brushing is super-important at this time of year especially, when the bunnies are busy shedding their winter coats. At times it’s as if we have big tumbleweeds of fur drifting around the bun room, with all the brushing we have to do. Hopefully we’ll find that this table makes it a little easier to keep up with it.
And the bunnies? Rather less appreciative.
