Kevin has been Adopted!

IMG_2035

Kevin a 1 year old Netherland Dwarf rabbit was transferred to BCFS’s foster home program in March 2018.  He wasn’t socialized well and did not like to be held.   Foster mom worked with Kevin to help him get used to being held and he eventually gobbled up affection as an interesting and fun bunny. He’s very curious and mostly fearless when it came to adventures and other animals.

We are extremely happy to announce that Kevin has been adopted into a very bunny savvy home.  Dani & Blake and their 4 children will certainly keep Kevin active and happy.  Kevin will also have plenty of bunny friends with the family’s 3 other bunnies, Baby a female lion head, Penelope a female Holland Lop and Charlie (previously known as Squash) a Flemish Cross who was adopted from BCFS last year.

We were lucky enough to already receive a wonderful update on Kevin.  New mom reports:

“On the ride home, I put Kevin in with Charlie, and they hit it off right away.  The idea behind stress bonding is to put them in a stressful situation (car ride) while closely monitoring them. The hope is, they lean on each other for support and comfort. Well, it worked!

When we got home, we slowly introduced the others, and there was only one scuffle I had to break up, between Kevin and Baby. Baby is the boss, she just needed Kevin to understand that. I think he got it LOL.

This morning he has been hanging out in his litter box, snacking on hay, and all the other bunnies have taken turns visiting him, snuggling him, sharing his treats and even grooming him!

He’s still a little scared and unsure obviously, but it’s like he was meant to be with us. It’s just all been so easy!

Dani

His favorite spot to rest last night and this morning is on my shoulder, and I’ve even been getting the occasional kiss. I’m smitten.”

Thank you from all of us at BCFS for giving this sweet boy a happy home where he can continue to flourish.

And BCFS would like to send a very special thank you to foster mom Tonia for taking such good care of Kevin.

Kevin the bunny: Update – Adopted

From no cuddles to lots of cuddles!

This precious boy has gobbled up affection as an interesting and fun bunny. He’s very curious and mostly fearless when it comes to adventures and other animals.

He’s been neutered, but does require special care. Ever filed a bunny’s tooth? Learn how! Kevin needs his front tooth filed daily as it grows too quickly. Kevin doesn’t mind if you don’t and if done daily he doesn’t need monthly trips to the vet.

Kevin is a very handsome and gregarious bunny who would thrive in an active home.

Do you have room for a teeny tiny bunny? We’re working on litter training, so he could hop around the house!

Kittens Adopted

Mama Cat with her 6 babies joined BCFS foster program April 2018.  Although Mama Cat was slated to be euthanized, BCFS took her in and had our Dunnville vet assess her and her six wee kittens.  Sadly three of the kittens quickly deteriorated and passed quietly in their sleep.  Mama deteriorated as well and became aggressive. She no longer cared for the kittens and was uncomfortable…. suffering.  The board, foster family and our veterinary discussed the possibilities and it decided with heavy hearts to have Mama euthanized.  The vets at Dunnville put their heads together and decided that it was likely a spinal cord injury from trauma.

The 3 remaining kittens thrived in their foster home and were quickly adopted.

The brother and sister team of Ginger & Ale were adopted together and BCFS congratulates and thanks Denielle and Liam for giving these wee kittens a wonderful forever home.

BCFS would like to extend their appreciation to foster mom Mary for taking care of these kittens.   We are very grateful to our foster homes for the care they give BCFS’ animals.  Without our foster homes, we would not be able to continue our quest to save the world one animal at a time.
