February is Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month!

The House Rabbit Society, an international nonprofit animal rescue and education group, and Petfinder.com have named February as Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month. In observance of this cause near and dear to our hearts, we've put together some events and resources to encourage all of you to participate in the celebration with us. Please take some time to look through the great resources on our site and we hope to see you at our upcoming events!

Promote Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month (Top)

If you are a business owner or a socially-conscious citizen and would like to join us in promoting Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month, we encourage you to download and post this 8.5"x11" poster. It's a great way to raise awareness and support your state's animal rescue efforts.

If you have a web site and would like to feature adoptable rabbits on your site, you can create a Featured Pet Module at Petfinder.com. This tool lets you create code to post into your web site. To feature Heartland's adoptable rabbits, use Shelter ID "OK76."


 

Sponsor a Rabbit! (Top)

Don't have room in your home, but have room in your heart? Sponsor a Rescued Rabbit! For your gift of just around $0.12 a day, $45 a year, you can make a big difference in the life of one of Heartland's rabbits. Any of our rabbits, adoptable or special needs, can be sponsored. As a special gift for sponsoring a rescued rabbit, you'll receive a sponsorship certificate complete with your rabbit's photo, a photo of your rabbit suitable for framing, a fridge magnet featuring your sponsored rabbit and updates from your rabbit throughout the year.

Sponsorship: $45 per year

Your sponsorship gift will go to fund veterinary care, food, toys, and education and adoption campaigns. You can choose the rabbit you would like to sponsor or we can choose a needy rabbit for you. You can pay for your $45 sponsorship by PayPal or by check sent to Heartland Rabbit Rescue, P.O. Box 224, Blanchard, OK 73010. When setting up your sponsorship, please give us the name of the rabbit you would like to sponsor and your address. Once we receive your sponsorship donation, we'll contact you to make arrangements.

 Find a Honey for your Bunny! (Top)

Do you have a house rabbit who is lacking a sweetheart this Valentine's Day? Are you worried that your rabbit is lonely while you're at work or school all day? If you've been considering adding another rabbit to your family, there is no time like the present to hop to it! Bunny bonding is an experience you'll not likely forget. It takes time and patience and all the planets have to line up just right, but we'll be with you every step of the way. Rabbits have an amazing ability to decide right away whether another rabbit is worthy of being included in their circle of friends. A new mate has to be your rabbit's choice. Some couples fall in love at first sight and others need a little time to get to know each other and determine who's going to be the boss in their budding relationship. Once bonded, bunny love is a very sweet thing. If you are interested in setting up a bonding session, please give us a call at 405-830-4646 or e-mail us at heartlandrabbitrescue@yahoo.com. We'll work with you and your rabbit for as long as it takes free of charge. All we ask for is the adoption fee of $55 for your bunny's' new honey.


All About Rabbits (Top)

If you are considering adopting a rabbit or just want to learn a little more about them, these resources will send you down the right path to discovering the wonderful world of rabbits.

House Rabbit Society - The House Rabbit Society is an international nonprofit organization that rescues rabbits and educates the public on rabbit care and behavior. Their web site has a wealth of information about rabbits and rabbit care and is a great first stop for someone looking to learn more about these delightful animals.

ASPCA - Learn about taking care of a house rabbit with this printable rabbit care guide created by the ASPCA.

Rabbit Breeds - Do you know the difference between a Checkered Giant, a Mini-Lop, and a Hotot? Rabbits come in many shapes and sizes and often contain characteristics from many breeds. Find out about the different breeds of rabbits on About.com.

The Language of Lagomorphs - Did you know that rabbits can talk? Rabbits are often mistakenly included in the rodent family, but they are actually lagomorphs, more closely related to horses than to mice. Although they are often perceived as being silent, rabbits have exceptional ability to communicate with us non-verbally. Learn all about the language of rabbits on this web site.

"Make Mine Chocolate!" Campaign (Top)

Each year, unwanted, former Easter rabbits fill local rabbit rescues and humane societies. The goal of the “Make Mine Chocolate!™” campaign is to break the cycle of acquisition and relinquishment by educating the public about the responsibilities involved in keeping a companion rabbit before a rabbit is brought home. Find out more about this worthwhile campaign and check out their resources by visiting the Make Mine Chocolate! web site.
