Scenes from the Shelter

Emma seriously hates listening to dogs bark. Which is pretty much all the time at the shelter. I feel for her - in a quiet environment she is a totally sweet rabbit, but she's timid at the shelter because, let's face it, it's a scary environment for a shy little girl.
Ok, adopting public, you no longer have any excuse to keep Pepper waiting. I'm really proud of him, he's improved so much. He's still a squirmer, but he'll sit in your lap and let you pet him, he's not too bad to hold, he's a total cutie and he loves to play.
This last scene is not from the shelter, it's from my house. That's Nutella, our momma guinea pig, with her three adorable little ones. They're almost at the stage of being separated, which means Nutella will soon be back at the shelter while we keep the babies for another week.

Sounds like we have two more guineas at the shelter, and it seems they weren't given very good care, poor little things. What is with all the small animals other than rabbits coming in lately? We have empty rabbit cages now (knock on wood), but in the past few weeks, we've had a bunch of hamsters, 5 degus, a budgie, and a bunch of guinea pigs. Shelter trends are so odd.
Tomorrow I'll have an update on Hope! She's doing great and hopefully I'll have new photos.
