The Turn-Around

We've had a slew of adoptions lately! After a very slow couple of months, it's been a whirlwind of good news over the last couple of weeks.
First, Sir Nigel was adopted to Pawsitively Pets, a kid's camp where he will serve in an educational role, teaching kids how to properly care for and handle chinchillas. He has a nice three-storey cage and will be treated very well.
Then a few days later, Leonard, our goofy nine-month-old boy, got adopted to a wonderful home. They were rabbit experienced, with a good vet and Leonard will live in a nice big pen.
The day after Leonard went, we had three rabbit adoptions in one day. I think that's a new record! First, Whisper was adopted as a young girl's first rabbit. Whisper is a quiet, easy-going young rabbit and I think it was a very good match. And then, much to my utter astonishment, Honey and Mochaccino were adopted - together! Never in a million years did I think they'd get adopted together. They went to a very rabbit-experienced home, and basically won the lottery in terms of adopters. 
And just to cap off a great couple of weeks, Olive was finally adopted over the weekend. I was beginning to think our grumpy girl would be stuck with us forever, but she was adopted to a family that had had rabbits before, and presumably knew what they were getting themselves into.

We've also had some transfers, as Cornelius and my dear Abeline were sent to Rabbit Rescue. Cornelius was adopted immediately (someone had wanted to adopt him from us, but he'd already been transferred), but unsurprisingly Abeline is still waiting. At least she's in a foster home now!

Of course, surprise, surprise, we have new rabbits (and birds), but at least we have space for them now!

Hi there, it's Honey and Mo's new mom here. We went to the shelter for Honey, who we spotted on the TAS website. A Lionhead wasn't in our plans -- but they told us how much they liked each other, so we just had to take him too. They seem very happy with their new home. They aren't quite so friendly with each other right now but we think it's the stress and his recent neuter getting in the way. We will reintroduce them starting this weekend and will send an update in a few weeks!

Hi Laura!

I think you are doing great work! I am also advocating for pet adoption. I would love to work with you.
