Midwest BunFest Rescue Partners bring with them a wealth of information on proper care and housing of rabbits, the importance of spay/neuter, where to find low-cost neutering services, information on rabbit behavior and more. These rescues operate on very little income, and sales from their merchandise at BunFest help support the homeless rabbits in their care. Starting your holiday shopping (Christmas is less than 11 weeks away!) with these rescues supports homeless rabbits, guinea pigs and other small pets and the groups who volunteer their time and effort to rescue and care for them.
In addition to the Rescue Partners mentioned in the previous article, the following dedicated groups also strive to educate the public, increase awareness of, and improve quality of life for the house rabbit, the third most popular pet in America:
Capital Area Humane Society has been sheltering homeless animals, fighting animal cruelty and neglect and offering programs to address the needs of animals in the community for more than 127 years. They bring a wealth of information to Midwest BunFest.
The Columbus House Rabbit Society, a licensed chapter of the international House Rabbit Society, is devoted to finding permanent, loving homes for abandoned rabbits and educating the public’s understanding of rabbits as companion animals. The Columbus HRS typically brings many great gifts for bunnies, including willow toys and tasty hays, as well as Christmas ornaments and other gift items for the humans.
Wonderland Rabbit Rescue from Melvindale, MI has healthy treats, cage liners, lap pads, travel pads, and pads with a center liner of waterproof fabric – perfect for disabled small animals that may not be able to use the litter pan anymore. Luv-N-Buns, all the way from Philadelphia, has wonderful 2015 bunny calendars available, and who knows what other wonderful items they may bring to BunFest? Other Rescue Partners include the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, Da Fun Bun Krew Sanctuary out of Jackson, NJ, and returning favorite West Michigan Critter Haven.
