I call Peanut my son but it’s no secret that we aren’t the same species. In being different species, we have different needs. His diet should be 80% grass hay; mine should be 0% hay. He should have unlimited access to hay. I also have unlimited access to hay, but it’s mostly in my shoes… Continue reading Hungry?
For the longest time, I wouldn’t tell people I was a teacher. There were just some things about the job (or at least how I was doing the job) that didn’t align with whom I feel I am.
My business mentor the incomparable MP reminds us often to “keep the main thing the main thing.” If you’re a loyal reader, you know what’s at the center of my vision board that hangs above the center of my desk. If you’re new here, I won’t keep you in the metaphorical dark. At the center… Continue reading Linus
I drove to Brooklyn and back, all by myself. I brought my passport, just in case they checked at the border and gave some cute stamp. But enough about me—this is about Maddie and Teddy. Several weeks ago, Maddie developed an abscess on the bottom of her back paw. Maddie and Teddy’s mom sought immediate… Continue reading Maddie and Teddy

Anytime you walk through those doors and sit on those benches, you are bound to meet someone who knows your name, even if it’s just from interaction in our incredibly supportive online community. An afternoon in July of 2014, I sat… Continue reading Ella and Monkey
In four days, I’m going back. I’ll sit in a blue and teal chair on an hour long trip to the greatest city in the world (arguably, of course, but that’s what we’ve told to call it). I’ll walk several blocks, check in to my hotel, and head to the SVA Theater. There, I’ll sit… Continue reading Going Back In

For 2017, we set a goal of 52 adoptions; we completed 55. For 2018, we set a goal of 56. Here… Continue reading The Great Slow Down
On the last Monday in March, I paid a special visit to a special little boy. Quick backstory: Cameron was rescued with four other rabbits right before Halloween. He was adopted shortly after the New Year and returned right before Valentine’s Day. We don’t get many returns (thankfully). Cameron had fallen ill and his adopters… Continue reading Cameron
It has become tradition for me to re-post this story at this time of year. It will remain tradition until all domestic rabbits are safe and protected. Found, but still Lost I am the initial point of contact when someone emails firstname.lastname@example.org. This month, the number of “finder” emails we have received is more than… Continue reading Revisit
Before having two rabbits of my own, I did not consider myself an “animal person.” You may have heard clippings from this yarn before. Here’s some of my companion animal history… When I was born, my parents had a rescue dog Bonzo, named after John Bonham. I don’t remember her but I hear she was… Continue reading Before
