Here are some upcoming events, announcements and volunteer opportunities. Stop by and we'll answer your questions on domestic rabbit care and behavivor, our adoption program, or questions about how to volunteer for EARS. If you are interested in volunteering at one of the events, please contact us.
- Spay and Neuter Certificates Sold
All low-cost spay and neuter certificates have been claimed.
We are very thankful to Riverview Animal Clinic for their participation in the program. Together, we saved rabbit caretakers $7,000 on high quality spay and neuter procedures.
Currently, we do not have plans for a new round of low-cost certificates. Our next fund raising efforts will be focused on covering medical costs of some of our elder buns.
Thank you to everyone who participated! There are more happy, healthy, spayed and neutered rabbits then before we started the certificates!
- Need Oxbow Hay?
Dr. Atlas and the folks at Riverview Animal Clinic donate 100% of the profits of hay sales to Alabama EARS. So when you buy a box of premium Oxbow hay for your bunny you can feel warm and fuzzy twice: first when you feed your bun a quality hay and second when you know your purchase helps out the foster buns.
- Bunny Safe Toys
If you're in the market for some toys at the same time, you'll find bags of bunny-safe toys also sold at Riverview Animal Clinic. Profits from toy sales also go directly to the EARS foster bun account at Riverview.
The Hay and Toy fund is how we pay for the majority of our spay, neuter and medical expenses. So next time you need hay (or toys), think of Riverview and you'll be thinking of the EARS buns!
- Books for Buns
Our "Books for Buns" program will continue as long as we have books to give away. Through a generous donation from the national House Rabbit Society, we will continue to donate copies of the House Rabbit Handbook to some libraries and shelters in Alabama. Does your library have a copy?
- Please Join or Renew Your Membership
Membership to Alabama EARS is still low--only $10 per year. You can join/renew online with Paypal, or any major credit card. If you prefer snail mail, a check is great too! We keep our membership lo dues low on purpose. Every renewal goes straight to foster bun care and public education.
Special Note: This year we are earmarking our membership donations for Snookie!
- June is Always Membership Renewal Month
It's still only $10 per year to join Alabama EARS. We know cash is tight, especially after the holidays, but we hope that there is enough cash in the couch cushions for everyone to renew! Renewing online is simple--you can use PayPal or any major credit card. You can join or renew here.
Why We Volunteer
Brownie came to us as a baby (only a few days old) from Huntsville Animal Services. In the foster home, we loved his sweet way of carefully considering a banana slice and gently nibbling on it before delicately taking it from human hands. When we met his forever parents, we knew immediately that Brownie would be in good hands, and we couldn't wait until Brownie joined them in their forever home!
Why do We Volunteer? Because Brownie and his forever parents are a perfect match, and we were able to make their dreams come true.
