New name to Blogging

I would like to introduce myself as a new "blogger" for the Columbus House Rabbit Society. My name is Eileen Vorst and I have been a member of the national HRS since 1996, when I brought home my first bunny, Little Beauty (who later became Little Beaui)! Never did I realize the impact this tiny animal would have on my life! Eventually I adopted Milli (1997), took in Princess Peapod (1997), adopted Sammy (1998) to be her bonded friend...and the story goes on! Currently I have 3 bunnies - Sammy, Benson, Thelma Louise - and 2 guinea pigs - Elizabeth & Lewis. Other volunteer work I do for CHRS is cleaning the rabbit pens in the lobby area at Capital Area Humane Society, attending picnics, meetings, parties, and spending time with other rabbit people! Over the years, CHRS has played a big part in my life and in the life of my bunnies. I have never met a group of people more dedicated to saving and providing the best quality of life for rabbits. I look forward to blogging for CHRS!

Farewell Reception

I hope you all can join us at this special event. It is time to say goodbye to the chief veterinarian at Capital Area Humane Society before she moves back to her home town in Texas. Dr. Barbara S. Whitlock has been at the shelter for almost a decade and has helped save thousands and thousands of animals! The details of the party are as follows:

When: Wednesday May 30, 2007
What: Open House 5:00-7:00PM
Where: Capital Area Humane Society

A light supper will be served followed by a brief presentation at 6:00PM.

R.S.V.P to Karen Fabritius (614) 777-7387 ext. 247

In the volunteer room, there is a card in the rabbit socialization box for everyone to sign. There is also a white envelope for anyone who wants to make a donation towards her going away gift. We will be giving her a 2 year subscription to Exotic DVM so she can continue her excellent work with rabbits in Texas.

So, come on out to thank Dr. Whitlock for all that she has done for the rabbits at CAHS and to wish her well with her new endeavors!!
