Hello Dahlings!

I'm Mrs. Brighton, the Huntsville Friends of Rabbits Education Bunny! 

Did you know that rabbits are the third most popular pet in the United States? Sadly, we are also the third most often surrendered at animal shelters, and the third most often euthanized.

Huntsville Friends of Rabbits hopes to help bunnies by clearing up misunderstandings about our behavior and care, so that people can come to see what awesome animals we really are! Please check out my blog (click here) and our Facebook page, too!

Hi Everyone! Just an update on Huntsville Friends of Rabbits:

As many of you know, we have suspended doing active rabbit rescue due to health issues. Instead we are focusing on educating the public about rabbit care and behavior. We hope that if people know more about their rabbit friends, fewer bunnies will wind up at shelters (or worse, set loose to fend for http://huntsvillefriendsofrabbits.blogspot.com.)

If you are one of our adopters, please know we'll always be here for you and your bunnies! Please make sure you have Ruth's contact info!  You can also email us at huntsvillebunnies@hotmail.com, but please be patient as it might take us a few days to answer.  THIS EMAIL IS ONLY FOR ADOPTERS, PAST AND PRESENT, AT THIS TIME!

Rest assured that Mrs. Brighton, Sassy, Brookie, Brody and any of our unadopted bunnies will be staying with us as permanent residents. We love them and they aren't going to go anywhere!

We want to say thank you to all our wonderful members, adopters, helpers, donors and rabbit lovers. You and the bunnies have made this all worthwhile! We hope we've made a difference for the rabbits of Madison County.

Best wishes to your bunnies and please check out our Education Bunny, Mrs. Kitty Brighton's blog!
