Rainbow Bridge

These beloved animals are not here in body anymore, but we think they'll always be hopping around on the Special Bunny lawn in spirit. We carry them with us in our hearts.

Herman

Boo was 'on the job' when it came to keeping Herman's face clean and tidy.Herman came to us when he was 8 years old, with terrible abcesses on his face. He hadn't received the medical care he needed, and the neglect really showed. We immediately got him to the vet and the poor little guy endured some pretty major treatments. For a while, he kinda looked like the Phantom of the Opera (only he was much quieter). After a little while,  his fur grew back and his sweet personality became a shining example of the love that rescued animals are ready to give kind people. Herman was so so sweet, and a big favorite of all of us at Special Bunny.

Jimmy

Celebratory Jimmy!Jimmy snuggles with his Boo

Oh, Jimmy, we miss you SO much. 

Jimmy was found in a chicken coop with his back broken and was being pecked by all the chickens. He was just looking for some food and how he made it this far we don't know. Why someone could throw out a little bunny like this is beyond us. He had the worst parasites our vet had ever seen & we were not sure he would make it but he did. We thought that eventually we could get him up into a wheelchair but because of how his spine had fused together and twisted his rib cage, that was not possible. He had continuous medical problems and we gave him the care he needed. He was very beloved and well-groomed by Boo and Herman...somehow, the threesome all bonded together and lived happily in Angie's living room for a long, long time. We treasure the time we had with Jimmy. He's the classic case of a truly wonderful special needs bunny who thrived with the care he so deserved.

 Jimmy basks in the sun. He loved this.

Jimmy used Boo as a pillow, and she was fine with it.Jimmy gets treatment for pneumonia. He loved the snuggling part.

Jimmy got the most adorable physical therapy!

Hana

Around Angie's house, it was Hana's job to be gorgeous. And she took her job very seriously. Hana was Angie's beloved little silvery lop.

Hana had frequent ear infections, which were very painful for her. Wekept  her comfortable and happy through plenty of medical attention. Your donations helped us help Hana.

Before she died, Hana finally bonded with Samson, after years of being a happily single bunny. They enjoyed lots of snuggling

Samson

Samson, or Sammy, was one of our favorite buns. He was bonded with lovely Hana, and when she died, he bonded with Esme. Sammy had ongoing abcess issues, and we tried and tried and tried to get him completely better. He was a loving, happy soul despite his medical stuff, and he loved being a part of our Special Bunny family. And we loved him.

Esme

Little Esme was a little Holland Lop, and like many bunnies who come from breeders, she had dental issues. When her owners couldn't afford to help her anymore, we were able to take her in. She lived happily with Samson, though she had ongoing dental issues, just like he did. Your donations go directly to helping us with vet bills like theirs. It pays off, and then some.

Danny

Dearest, sweetest Danny!

Danny was given up because he 'got too old.' Well, he wasn't watoo old to give and get tons and tons of love. He was a tiny little guy, and he had a condo completely with a heated bed and daily doses of medicine that managed his arthritis and general aches and pains of being a senior bun.

Danny loved snuggling. He lived for it. He reguarly fell asleep on his favorite human's chest for 4  hours at a time. And that human couldn't have been happier.

Danny lived to be 14, which is a ripe old age for a bunny. We loved him for the many years he was with us, and we'll love him forever.

Billy 

Billy was not a rabbit. Billy was a chinchilla. But we're not sure he knew that.

Billy lived in his own palatial enclosure in the bunny barn, where he was surrounded by friends who have significantly bigger ears than he did.

We lost Billy after a short illness in 2012. We miss him dearly.
