Bunnies need forever homes too!

It’s not just dogs and cats that need to find forever homes, all sorts of pets, including bunnies, need homes!

There is a great rescue in California that is working hard on behalf of bunnies, The Bunny Bunch. The Bunny Bunch was established in 1984, and is a non profit, no kill rescue and education organization run entirely by volunteers. Over the years they have rescued thousands of rabbits, mostly from high kill shelters.

Most of the rabbits they rescue come from shelters, sadly rabbits are taken to shelters everyday, mostly because people have bought them without learning about their care. A big part of the Bunny Bunch is education about the proper care of rabbits.

They even hold classes at both of their adoption centers in addition to off-site events throughout the year to educate the public.

They serve the southern part of California, so if you are in that area and looking for a bunny as a pet, please check with The Bunny Bunch first.

You may even have heard of a recent news story about the rescue of 135 rabbits that were being kept in the back of a U-haul truck. The Bunny Bunch currently has 24 of the rabbits, the rest are at Animal Control, and they are taking them in groups to their adoption centers as space permits. You can read more about it here.

World Spay Day

Today is World Spay Day! World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS, Humane Society International and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. Originally created by the Doris Day Animal League in 1995 as Spay Day USA, World Spay Day has now been recognized by nearly 70 countries.

On the last Tuesday of every February, World Spay Day shines a spotlight on the power of affordable, accessible spay/neuter to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in shelters or killed on the street.

We think this is an important cause and wanted to help spread the word. To learn more about World Spay Day, and why you should spay or neuter your pets, please visit the World Spay Day page on the HSUS website. You can even sponsor a spay/neuter surgery if you would like.

The next World Spay Day is February 27, 2018 and will mark the 24th annual World Spay Day. Mark your calendars and help promote this great cause.

Review: Muttropolis.com

Muttropolis is a great website full of products every pet parent would want for their dog or cat. Baby got to try out two fun soft toys and calming aromatherapy spritzer.

As you can see, she fell in love with the strawberry toy (you would think the poor girl had never had a toy before in her life the way she went crazy for it). She has also loved her “Chewnel Pawfume”.

The aromatherapy spray was really nice. It works very well for detangling and it can be used on dry hair (perfect for getting out mattes) as well as after a bath. It smells very good, and it does seem to work for calming as well as just helping with tangles.

Muttropolis offers all kinds of products for your dog, clothing, beds, eco-friendly goods, fun Halloween costumes, and of course, harnesses and collars. They offer things for the kitties as well as the dogs, such as scratching posts, beds and toys. The other great thing about them is they encourage pet adoption through rescue, and hold adoptions at their offline shops.

We give Muttropolis 5 out of 5 paws up!
