Foster buns need your help!

I neglected to tell you about the great news I had a few weeks ago. I convinced the Humane Society to change their policy regarding rabbits: making it so all rabbits are fixed before going into homes (just like their cats and dogs). I also made an information packet for them to hand out to the new rabbit owners.

That joyous occasion was short lived. Now they tell me they can't afford to have the rabbits fixed. Right now the only rabbits they have are the ones I still have in foster care. This news made me so sad. It is so important that they be altered for so many reasons: it's better for their health, they would have better litter box habits, they can become aggressive, we don't need more babies to add to the pet population, people wouldn't be able to adopt them to reproduce them for fur or meat, etc.

Here is where they need your help. I want to raise money to have the 3 babies altered. (I will pay for the momma to be spayed.) I am asking you for your donations. Those of you that donate $25 or more will get a hand made mini scrapbook (4-6 pictures) of your pet(s). You can email me for my address at kauai_sand@hotmail.com. Or you can make the donation to the Humane Society of Skagit Valley, 18841 Kelleher Rd, Burlington, WA 98233, please let them know your donation is for altering the foster rabbits. ANYTHING will be appreciated! The buns will have a better life if we can do this for them.




One other thing, if you would please: I don't have a very large blog following. Would you please post a link on your blog to mine (copy and paste my story if you want). That would be wonderful. Thanks so much! Oh, and if you have any easy fund raising ideas, please let me know.

Hi. I just found you through Rabbits' Guy and wish you the best in your endeavor with the buns. I'll add you to my blog list and link as soon as I get a new post up. I think its great that you got your humane society to agree to fix bunnies before they are adopted out.

Hoping that your humane society will reverse their decision again - that was great work by you and thanks for fostering those special little beings.
