The following is a list of the bunnies we have helped over the years. If you love reading about success stories, this page is for you!
Conan, a Holland Lop boy, was one of our first foster bunnies. He came into Huntsville Animal Services in very poor condition with a large lump on his stomach. We took him in immediately. Upon x-ray, it turned out the lump was a hernia, and our veterinarian felt it could be repaired during his neuter. Unfortunately, during surgery he stopped breathing, and only Dr. Moore’s quickly giving him CPR brought him back! He apparently had a respiratory infection with few symptoms which did not show up on his x ray. Although we were unable to repair his hernia, he couldn’t be neutered, and his respiratory problems became chronic, Conan did just fine as a sanctuary rabbit. He had an assortment of Sesame Street toys that he propped himself up on (to relieve pressure on his hernia) and when he wanted attention - which was most of the time! - he quacked like a duck. He was a favorite of visitors to the foster home. He went to the Bridge several years ago and is very much missed.
Cotton, a Californian boy, was one of five bunnies abandoned in a back yard when their people moved away. By the time they were rescued two of the bunnies had died and the other three were emaciated. In addition, Cotton had a fracture in his spine very close to his tail. We rescued him and his two friends from HAS and got him and his friends the vet care they needed. All three became healthy, happy bunnies. Unfortunately Cotton was not able to find an adopter and passed away from cancer while in foster care. We miss his big personality and adorable striped feet.
Cutie, a Netherlands Dwarf boy, was surrendered to HAS by her owner after being purchased as an Easter bunny. We rescued her from there, and fortunately her adorable looks and young age quickly got her an adopter who committed to a lifetime of bunny care.
Daffodil, a Harlequin Dutch girl, was found running loose in New Market with four other younger rabbits and an older bunny just before Easter. We have reason to believe they were going to be sold as Easter bunnies until the breeder realized this was against the law and released them. Daffodil was a spirited little Dutch girl and had the good fortune to be adopted with her lookalike sister, Daizy.
Daffy, a Havana girl, is one of nine bunnies rescued by a kind family from a meat rabbit breeder. They were only being fed every 2-3 days and had been attacked by dogs on at least one occasion. In fact, Daffy is missing a toe from this attack. We took in three of the bunnies and tried to help find homes for the other six. Daffy remains in foster care and awaits a wonderful adopter who will understand her shyness.
Daizy, a Harlequin Dutch girl, was found running loose in New Market with four other younger rabbits and an older bunny just before Easter. We have reason to believe they were going to be sold as Easter bunnies until the breeder realized this was against the law and released them. Daizy was an adorable little Dutch girl and had the good fortune to be adopted with her lookalike sister, Daffodil.
Della, a Cinnamon girl, was in the second of two large groups of rabbits who came into HAS in 2010 (see Bianca, above). She came in with a number of her babies. She was a friendly bunny from the start, and had a beautiful coat and enormous ears.
Dolce came into the shelter with the first of two large groups of rabbits who were brought to HAS in 2010 (see Bianca, above) He was a calm and sweet little guy who took a shine to an extremely shy foster bunny named Sabrina. Although we don’t usually bond foster bunnies (as it makes them harder to adopt) we thought having Dolce for a husband might bring Sabrina out of her shell. It certainly did, and she became much more interested in people and being social. Sadly, Sabrina developed an aggressive cancer and passed away a few months after they had bonded. Dolce seemed very sad, but fortunately he was soon adopted by a lovely couple who wanted a husband for their Lionhead girl. He now is with his happy ever after family in Hartselle.
Donatella, a Havana girl, was one of the first of two large groups of rabbits who were brought into HAS IN 2010 (see Bianca, above.) She was a mischievous little lady who was extremely smart and funny. She was adopted as a girlfriend for another of our fosters, Cousin It.
Dottie was a beautiful Rex girl with a spirited personality who was brought into Huntsville Animal Services as a stray. She quickly came into foster care with us but passed away after problems with surgery. She was a beautiful little soul and she is greatly missed.
