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!
Dustin, a Holland Lop, was abandoned at a local vet’s office after he was brought in with fly strike. He lost an eye from this, but adjusted very well and romped around just like a normally sighted bunny. He was adopted as a companion for our former foster bunny Pumpkin.
Dude was one of the first of two large groups of rabbits who were brought into HAS in 2010 (see Bianca, above). Dude was a happy go lucky kind of guy who settled into his adopter’s home immediately. He and his new girlfriend, Isis, bonded overnight! He is a founding member of the Couch Rabbit Society, and now lives near Florence.
Eddie was one of the second of two large groups of bunnies brought into HAS in 2010 (see Bianca, above). Eddie was an opinionated fellow with a tendency to be a bit spirited. Fortunately for him an adopter came along who loved bunnies with lots of rabbitude, and she immediately thought Eddie was the guy for her! Eddie now lives near Montgomery with his people and his girlfriend, Nutmeg.
Eli was a Himalayan boy brought into HAS because “the kids are done with him”, and he was rescued by us shortly thereafter. He was a pint-sized cutie with a spirited personality who quickly found an adopter. Just look at that nose!
Ellie Mae, a Holland Lop, was rescued by us after she was brought into HAS with her husband, Elton, after their person moved here from Texas and could not find an apartment that would allow rabbits. She was a happy young bunny, and she and Elton were quickly adopted by a couple who were involved with our local parrot rescue group. Fortunately they didn’t mind sharing their home with lots of beautiful birds!
Elton, a Hotot boy, was rescued by us after he was brought into HAS with his girlfriend, Ellie Mae, after their person moved here from Texas and could not find an apartment that would allow rabbits. He was a lovable goofball of a bunny, and despite his having intestinal issues he and Ellie Mae were adopted by a couple who were involved with our local parrot rescue group. Fortunately they didn’t mind sharing their home with lots of beautiful birds!
Esmeralda, lovingly nicknamed Messie Essie for her generally disheveled litter habits, was brought into HAS as a stray, in poor condition and with large tumors on her abdomen. We rescued her from there immediately and took her straight to our vet. The lumps turned out to be cancerous, but after several surgeries they did not re-occur and her condition greatly improved. Essie stayed in Sanctuary with us and was our much loved Education Bunny for several years. She was known as “the bunny with the gigantic dewlap”! Eventually, she developed an aggressive infection in her leg, which had to be amputated. Essie did just fine as a tripod bunny, and startled visitors to the main foster home by running up to greet them., moving as fast on three legs as most bunnies do on four. In the last year of her life she developed cataracts which we did not feel comfortable operating on because of her age and somewhat declining health, so she was moved into a comfy space in her foster mom and dad’s bedroom. For the last year of her life she enjoyed a quiet place there with nightly cuddle sessions and lots of treats. She went quietly to the Bridge after a stroke. Of all our foster bunnies, Essie is the one who touched the most people and educated so many about rabbit behavior and care. She is greatly missed.
Fawn was one of the second of two large groups of rabbits who came into HAS in 2010 (see Bianca, above). Although he was a quiet bunny, he quickly found a home with a lovely family who appreciated his calm personality. He has grown into a wonderful rabbit who is living the good life near Huntsville.
Fiona, a Californian girl, came into Decatur Animal Services after her person was arrested for DUI - with Fiona and another bunny loose in the back seat. Her person never came back to DAS to claim them so we took both bunnies into foster care. At the time we were very short on foster space and Fiona lived in the bathroom of her foster home for several weeks until a pen space opened up. She became known as the Toilet Queen as she loved to sit on the toilet seat and survey her kingdom. She also loved unrolling the toilet paper and making nests out of it! Fiona was adopted by an awesome adopter who loved her quirky personality and rabbitude.
Flea was one of a group of 40 Lionhead bunnies running around a back yard in Decatur (see Alina, above). Flea was a baby when he was taken in and was named Flea because even at 6 weeks old he could jump almost three feet. He was fostered till he was old enough to neuter and then he was quickly found a loving home.
