Adoption Update - Bella!!



Even though Bella wasn't officially part of the CHRS foster care system, she needed a home and we helped to find her one!

This lucky girl was adopted in April by Heather and Jeremy and they absolutely adore their little girl. They have renamed her Cloud, and she now has has many cute nicknames, but she doesn't care what you call her so long as you are paying attention to her! She is now the queen of her very own cottontail cottage and is a big fan of veggies. Although her favorite treat is actually blueberries.

We are thrilled for Cloud and her new family!

Adoption Update

Scarlet 005.JPG
Little lionhead Scarlett was adopted at the end of April to be buddies with resident Rex rabbit Theodore. Scarlett groomed Theo on the first date and did all sorts of binkies around him so we are keeping our paws crossed for an easy and quick bonding. Scarlett now lives in Barnesville, Ohio.

Check out her pretty new "hair" accessories!

Adopted Abby!

An update from Denise:

Abby and Ziggy are now living together and getting along well. I don't think they have quite decided who is in charge yet. I ended up putting some banana on Abby's head and Ziggy finally "groomed" her. She loved it!! Ziggy loved the banana. Abby is quite demanding in the relationship and Ziggy remains laid-back. She will still occassionally bat at him with her front paws when she is not getting what she wants, but she won't do a thing to him when he takes greens right from her mouth?! They make a cute little pair and Ziggy seems more upbeat.

Happy New Year!

Finally, 2009 is here!

I have to admit that I slept through it, having recently acquired a taste for early to bed and early to rise. Yep, I'm getting old.

But I have finally discovered what the early risers have always known. The early morning hours are a wonderful time to spend with our four-legged friends. Shelby is definitely a morning rabbit, greeting me with repeated thumps indicating her displeasure that it's 6 am and she STILL hasn't had her morning pellets.

Kramer greets me with a flick of his tail before magically re-appearing in the kitchen, waiting impatiently for his breakfast. Molly is like me - slow moving. But with Kramer's encouragement, she makes her way over and eats her share.

What better way to greet the New Year than happy, (reasonably) healthy bunny faces! I am so very grateful for mornings like this.

Another reason to be grateful this first day of the New Year? So many rabbits found their forever home this past year, four within the past month!

All of Lucy's babies have now been adopted. Lacey has been adopted by Megan, who also has Blackberry. I remember Lacey as a baby, climbing on top of her siblings to find just the right spot to sleep. Little Brie, gorgeous and a bit shy, won over the hearts of Anne and Albert. Hard to believe but Lucy's babies are almost a year old now!

The Lambright family have adopted Peyton, a big gorgeous guy.

Mary Beth took in Worf as a foster and decided to keep him.

So, as the New Year begins, my hope is that you and your fur balls have a very happy and healthy New Year! And thanks so much for supporting CHRS! We really are making a difference.

More Winners

I am delighted to announce that two more babies have been adopted - as a bonded pair. For a while it looked like Buffy would be adopted as a single rabbit. She turned up her bunny nose at every suitor that came her way. But after one spay and one neuter. she and brother Marshall happily reunited. They went to their forever home with Stacy and Chad on Sunday. Whoo hoo!!!!

Marshall and Buffy

You may have heard about Tanner, a young male who was dumped in a Worthington park. A good samaritan rescued him and lavished much love and attention on him but could not keep him due to her landlady. Megan (who also has Blackberry) has generously taken him in. Kudos to Megan!

Megan has been busy on another front. Buck-A-Bun subscribers will be in for a treat come September. Keep an eye on those inboxes!

Finally, Karalee is on the mend following another serious asthma attack. Definitely good news!

Excellent Adoption News

One of the more pleasant tasks I get to perform is removing rabbits from the Adoptables page on the columbusrabbit website when they have found their forever homes.

I had triple the pleasure tonight. Our beloved Blackberry, baby Maddie, and cutie Rupert have all been adopted.

Whoo hoo and major kudos to everyone involved!

Another baby appears to have found a new friend and a new home. As the picture below shows, Maddie may be ready to swap her six siblings for a very handsome fellow named Nicky. Whoo hoo! Keep your fingers crossed that the bonding is a success.

Congratulations to everyone involved. And keep the positive thoughts and prayers coming for momma Lucy.

Blackberry, Lucy and Other Adoption News

Yesterday was a big day for our beloved Blackberry, who had her first bonding with Megan Lynch's 11-year-old Rex, Major Triad. Megan is a new volunteer who is doing our email newsletters. As you can see, their first date went very well. Of course, Blackberry groomed him and he even groomed her once. Keep your fingers crossed that today's second date goes well!

 Blackberry & Major

Two other bondings are going on, Maddie is one of Lucy's babies.


Earl survived a traumatic attack by an animal which resulted in the loss of a couple toes. He was then surrendered to a local vet clinic This little guy has definitely earned a forever home.


Unfortunately, not all the news is good. Lucy has had another setback. Both eardrums have ruptured. Hopefully, a CT Scan will clarify the extent of the problem. Please keep Lucy in your thoughts and prayers.

Another rabbit, Hannah, is being returned. The Nunes have offered to foster her temporarily until a slot opens up in the Curry home. Our sincere thanks to Ruth and Dave!

Snuggles will be bonding with Nicki, Otto with Patches, Gracie with Eliott, Kelsey with Paisley & Bun Bun, Jackson with Sassy, Oreo with Callie Jane, and Sydney was adopted as a friend for Radar and they are already bonded.

Wow, how we wish all the bondings were that easy!!
