Oscar Breed: Holland Lop mix Loved: blueberries and bananas Naughty: snores when you are trying to work Nice: friendly and snugly Oscar was the original Bunny Blessings bunny. We found him on Craigslist in 2013 and he immediately became part of our family. Many people came to know and love Oscar through our posts of his adorable furry self snoozing in front of the fridge waiting for snacks. After nine beautiful years during which he helped launch this amazing ministry, Oscar passed away from tummy troubles. Bunny Blessings will forever be grateful to this first sweet bunny who taught us the joy of loving a bunny.
Millie Breed: Hotot Loves: raspberries and baby carrots Naughty: doesn't share the bunny castle Nice: has patience with feisty Charlie Millie came to us from Craigslist when her owner needed to re-home her. She is the princess of her castle and seems to not recognize she is a bunny like the rest. Millie is a little Diva who is a bit shy if she doesn't know you but when she warms up, she enjoys head and ear rubs. With her beautiful blue eyes ringed in black, Millie will convince you she's a princess too!
Charlie Breed: Netherland Dwarf Loves: strawberries and Millie, in that order Naughty: thinks he can pick fights with bunnies much larger than himself Nice: always cheerful and wanting to play Charlie is the tiniest of the bunch, his playful personality packs a big punch. He is a crowd favorite at events with folks always asking, "Where's Charlie?" as soon as we walk in the door. Charlie takes only brief naps to be sure he doesn't miss out on any fun. He loves his lady Millie and the two of them together is just the cutest thing you've ever seen! Sadly, Charlie has recently been diagnosed (April 2022) with an incurable cancer. He is no longer going out on visits but is instead spending his time enjoying Millie, our volunteers and playing in the Bunny Barn.
Willie Breed: Holland Lop Loves: kale and his bond-mate, Poppy Naughty: follows mischievous Poppy into trouble Nice: has super patience and is sweet at visits Willie was adopted from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville, NC. We knew immediately we had found a wonderfully sweet bunny for our visits. Willie loves sitting in his pet bed during visits for cuddles, but then is always happy to be reunited with his buddy, Poppy. Willie and Poppy enjoy snuggling together and grooming each other. We are happy to have them so in love!
Poppy Breed: Lionhead mix Loves: her "husbun", Willie and romaine lettuce, cilantro, kale, carrots, strawberries, raspberries, peppers.... Naughty: steals Willie's treats, destroys their cardboard homes and ends up with cardboard pieces all over her fluffy self Nice: cute enough to get way with it all Poppy was adopted from Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Shelter. We decided to name her after a flower since she was found abandoned in a field. Poppy is often referred to as "the big fluffy one" and has certainly gained a little weight since we adopted her. We think she sneaks Willie's food to help keep up her gorgeous fluffy appearance.
Leo Breed: Lionhead Loves: everyone and being the center of attention Naughty: chews on shoelaces if you stop petting him Nice: always happy to see you Happy Leo was not surprisingly found roaming soccer fields in Charlotte and brought to Carolina Waterfowl Rescue. We are sure he was searching for some people to play with him! While we were building our Bunny Barn, Leo stayed with our volunteer Dianne and quickly won the hearts of her and her husband, Mike. Leo now lives with them and is likely the most spoiled bunny on the planet. He always is happy to travel with Dianne and all the other volunteers and bunnies to make new friends at our events.
Buster Breed: Dutch Loves: his taco bed Naughty: hides from Bella when he tired of being bossed around Nice: his big brown eyes make you melt Buster also came to us from Carolina Waterfowl Rescue after he was taken in from a poor situation with lots of neglected animals. Luckily, Buster was in pretty good shape and only needed some fattening up to be healthy for adoption. He is a somewhat shy guy but likes to have his long nose scratched and slowly warms up to gentle attention. Buster is also a favorite in the Bunny Barn and at events because of his sweet demeanor.
Bella Breed: Dutch Loves: bossing Buster around Naughty: enjoys fussing at the kind folks who clean her home and "mess with her stuff" Nice: demonstrates that even with a disability, she can be an awesome love bunny Like Buster, Bella is a sleek Dutch bunny who we adopted from Carolina Waterfowl Rescue. Bella unfortunately suffered some disease in her right eye that was resistant to treatment and had to be removed. There was some concern that people would be turned off by her disability, but we quickly decided that we love her message, "I'm not perfect but I have big things to do and lots of love to give." We were delighted that Bella quickly fell in love with and bonded to our handsome Buster. They get along splendidly...as long as Bella gets her way!
Harry Breed: Angora Loves: "nanners"! Naughty: likes the "spicy hay" (phone and computer cords) Nice: gives bunny kisses at bedtime Harry was offered to Bunny Blessings when his previous owner could no longer keep him. He is a beautiful Angora rabbit but Angoras need lots of extra care and grooming. Thankfully, Harry stays with our volunteer, Rita who does an excellent job caring for this high maintenance fella and keeps him looking his furry best!
Gracie Mae Breed: Blue Tort English Lop Loves: excellent bunny scratching Naughty: thinks it's occasionally fun to make huge messes with her pine pellets for volunteers to clean up Nice: was an awesome mama to her 9 babies Gracie Mae is a gorgeous Blue Tort English Lop who was adopted into our program and sneakily brought along her babies. Surprise, surprise, surprise to us when she gave birth to nine wriggling pink babies about a month after she arrived. We fell in love with those precious babies, raised them carefully, had them all spayed/neutered and adopted out into loving homes. We kept one sweet baby, Lucy Lou, so that Gracie wouldn't be lonely. We are quite sure Gracie is anything but lonely with crazy Lucy Lou around! Gracie Mae is sweet as pie and loves to have her long ears petted. She been an amazing addition to our ministry!
Lucy Lou Breed: English Lop crossed with Rhinelander Loves: destroying cardboard boxes and anything else in her path Naughty: how much room is on this website??? Nice: she will always be our baby With one ear up and one ear down, our "baby", Lucy Lou is a fun-loving bundle of energy. Her fur is absolutely gorgeous with its different colors. She is happy being around her mama and even happier stealing her mama's treats. Her favorite motto is "Three for me and one for you!" Lucy seems to especially enjoy interacting with children and they love to watch her crazy antics. We are thankful for the unexpected bunny blessing that is Lucy Lou!
Molly Breed: Netherland Dwarf Loves: playtime zooming around the Bunny Barn Naughty: likes to "bark" at volunteers when she doesn't get her way Nice: tucks perfectly into your arms to be snuggled forever Molly is a gorgeous, chubby Netherland Dwarf who found her way to our ministry when her owners had to relocate and needed a new home for her. Once we saw that adorable heart-shaped nose, we were smitten and made room for her in the Bunny Barn. Molly loves to snuggle and seemed ready to provide bunny cuddle therapy from day one!
Scruffy Breed: Definite Mutt! Some angora and lop mix Loves: people! people! people! Naughty: steals bags of carrots from the fridge Nice: loves to give and receive affection Scruffy came to us from Hoppery Rabbit Sanctuary where he was a personal favorite but the owner knew he would be an incredible therapy bunny because he loves being around people. While we rarely say yes to accepting new bunnies, it was hard to turn him down after seeing his adorable pictures and learning about his sweet personality. So Scruffy came to live in the Bunny Barn and now steals both carrots from the fridge and the hearts of everyone he meets.
Lennon Breed: Holland Lop Loves: destroying cardboard houses! Naughty: won't be still for eager volunteers to take pictures Nice: his blue eyes are stunning Lennon has been known by our nonprofit for a few years as some of our volunteers bunny sat him and fell in love with him. When his family felt they could no longer provide him with the attention he needed, they messaged us to see if he could be part of our ministry. Our familiarity with him led us to quickly say YES! Lennon loves being in the Bunny Barn with his new bunny friends and is happy to play with our volunteers. We hope to eventually bond him to another bunny so he has a friend! Lennon loves having his soft floppy ears scratched and getting treats. He’s living a good life in the Bunny Barn!
