I wrote to you weekly for 6 years. I skipped maybe a handful of weeks scattered over those years, but since Believe in Bunnies launched, I sat faithfully at my keyboard on Sunday mornings to share a tale of rabbit rescue, or my spiritual journey, or walking alongside another being’s journey. My consistency wavered this… Continue reading Oh, Hey…
I catch myself saying the sentence, “We can’t save them all” often but I’m realizing as I sit to write this that I need to change up that mindset. So, from now on I’ll say, “I’m looking for ways to save them all” or “I’m working toward a world where they are all safe.” For… Continue reading Paisley
Around this time every year, I publish a story that I wrote in 2016… a reminder to some, new knowledge to others, about why Rescue exists. We won’t stop until they are all safe and loved. Found but Still Lost I am the initial point of contact when someone emails firstname.lastname@example.org. This month, the number… Continue reading Throwback: Found but Still Lost
It’s about time that you meet Theodora. We started by taking the overflow when the usual bunny-sitters were booked. Then, the bunny-sitters moved to Florida so there was more need for our services. We have a finished basement and we always have a bale of hay in the garage, so bunny-sitting on occasion fits in… Continue reading Theodora
Enjoy this throwback post from February 2016 titled Lessons Learned… Have I learned and worked the lessons? Something to reflect on today! I’ve learned so much about rabbits in my nearly four years as a volunteer for the Long Island Rabbit Rescue… but I’ve learned even more about people. I’ve observed volunteers of all ages… Continue reading Throwback: Lessons Learned
Loyal readers know by now that I’m the main point of contact for a volunteer animal rescue organization called the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group. Earlier this week, we received a remarkable number of emails from people who are looking to get rid of their rabbits. We call this rehoming, but that’s often a soft… Continue reading A Problem & A Fix
Our little monster turned 8 this past week. He may be cruising into his senior years, but he hasn’t slowed down a bit! He runs his laps around the couch, often to evade me. He chews holes in the corners of the couch cushions. He’s still working on remodeling the molding between the living room… Continue reading Hoppy 8th Birthday Peanut!
Don’t get me wrong—there’s lots of activity happening at headquarters but I do not feel busy. Last week, a dear friend posted a graphic on Facebook, prompting scrollers to describe her life using only GIFs. I have a GIF obsession, so of course I was into this. For this friend, I posted a Green Acres… Continue reading I’m Not Busy
Sometimes I think, “everybody wants to help until it’s time to help” but it’s time to stop that way of thinking. That is blocking the help from showing up. In rescue, it’s always time to help. There has not been one day in my 7+ years volunteering when no help was needed. Time to apply… Continue reading Rescue Vision
I came across this gem that I wrote in October of 2016… and I love how every word is still true (or truer) today. Enjoy this throwback. I’ve been asked the question “Why rabbits?” in a variety of contexts over the five years that I’ve been a bunny-mom and subsequently a rescuer. I typically blink… Continue reading Throwback: Why Rabbits?
