Please consider helping a rabbit like Muggins this Easter with a donation to the Friendly Farms Medical Fund.

Hi! My name is Muggins! They called me Smokey at the shelter, but my foster mom says there is already a Smokey at Friendly Farms, so I will be called Muggins from now on!

I know the big wound on my back looks pretty bad, but it is healing now that I have had an abscess removed from there. I am active, playing with my toys, digging, and doing other fun bunny things like any other young rabbit boy! My surgical staples will come out in 2 weeks, my fur will grow back, and I will be as handsome as ever!

My brother and I got into a terrible fight at the shelter. I hurt him pretty badly too, but the shelter vet was able to fix him up. My abscess wasn’t getting any better, so the shelter vet recommended that I have surgery. The shelter asked Friendly Farms if they would help me. Thankfully they opened their hearts to me and took me to their vet for surgery, because I have heard that it is not a good thing when animals leave by the back door of the shelter instead of the front.

For now, I am enjoying my stay at Friendly Farms, but when my foster mom tells me how good life will be at my forever home, I can hardly wait! Will you be the person to share love and good times with me for the rest of my life?

Muggins will be available for adoption after his wound heals. We would greatly appreciate help with his medical expenses. Donations can be made directly to the Friendly Farms Medical Fund at the Avian and Exotic Clinic of the Monterey Peninsula or contact us.

Dots- Adopted!

Congratulations to Dots and his new family! May you and Pepper have many happy, bunny-snuggling years together!

This handsome mini-rex boy, all stretched out to see what’s down below, is named Dots. He is sweet and easy to handle, and has the wonderfully soft fur rexes are famous for.

Dots was recently neutered and is still working on his litter box skills. He is looking for someone to be his friend and guardian in a life-long partnership. Dots is still a youngster- he will be two in June, so he is looking for at least a ten year commitment. And could a bunny girlfriend be in the cards as well?

Well-behaved dogs and other animals are okay with Dots, and he is fine with children who treat him gently.

Contact us here at Friendly Farms for more information about Dots.

Charlie (previously Snow) – Adopted!

Sweet Charlie finally has his forever home! Best wishes to all of you!

Charlie was originally surrendered to the SPCA with his mother and littermates when he was about 3 months old. He was missing one upper incisor and his teeth weren’t able to wear down properly and were overgrown. Charlie was rescued by Friendly Farms and is now being sponsored by AFRP. He had surgery to remove his incisors on January 17.

Rabbits requiring this surgery do very well, as the molars are the only teeth they use for chewing; the incisors are just for biting off pieces of food small enough to eat. The only extra care Charlie requires is having his fruits and hard veggies like carrots chopped up for him, and lettuce and other leafy greens torn into pieces. He is able to eat hay, most green vegetables like parsley, dandelion greens, clover, and cilantro, and rabbit pellets normally.

Rabbits need to chew to keep their incisor teeth worn down. Charlie isn’t able to bite furniture, carpets, baseboards, and other items that you prefer not be chewed on, making him a great house rabbit! He also has excellent litterbox habits, so he is a good candidate for having unsupervised run of the house.

Charlie is an interactive, curious, confident young bunny boy with lots of love to give. He is also easy to handle and look at those great big silly ears! Charlie has been neutered.

Please contact Mia at 831-521-0101, or Friendly Farms for more information about this delightful bunny boy.

Serena – Adopted!

Wonderful Serena has been adopted! Congratulations to her and her new family!

This adorable little Netherland dwarf girl is as cute as a button! Serena is 2 or 3 years old now, we think. She is very sweet and enjoys gentle cuddling and lots of strokes.

Serena is looking for a home where she will be a well-loved member of the family. She was neglected at her previous home when the novelty of having a cute bunny wore off and the reality of daily cleaning, feeding, exercising, and socializing settled in. We are committed to finding her a home where she will be loved for who she is and joyfully cared for, not seen as a toy to be discarded when another distraction appears.

If you would like to meet Serena, please contact us here at Friendly Farms for more information. She has been spayed.
