Below are just some of the bunnies we have at Floyd Lamb Park. 

FEATURED BUNNIES – Sleepy & Elvira

Sleepy is a 2 1/2 year old onyx black male and Elvira is a 1 year old female with a lovely gray tone. These 2 are a bonded pair, with Sleepy being the more outgoing, and Elvira a little more cautious. Both are very loving and will definitely come to you for a favorite treat. Both have been with us for awhile, Sleepy since 2018 so we will be excited when they find their FurEver Homes! Will it be yours? 

As with all of our adoptions, you will receive a COMPLETE setup, no need to go out and buy your supplies. We give you EVERYTHING you need to get started.

Ebony came to us on May 1st. A park employee found Ebony hiding under a picnic table, and brought her to us. She is a very loving bunny who loves to be petted, and has cute little streaks of white fur on her back. We are assuming that she has not been spayed, so she will be a “Foster to Adopt”, which means she will be our bunny until she is fixed.
 
 
 
 
 
Mel and Alice are 9 months old and had one litter together. Mel is orange/blonde and Alice is brown. Of the two, Mel is very chill, while Alice takes just a few minutes to come out of her shell. Both are loving bunnies and curious. Both have been chipped, vaccinated, fixed and are ready to find their FurEver homes. Mel & Alice are currently being fostered so if you want to meet them let us know.
 
 
 
 
Sleepy is a 2 1/2 year old onyx black male and Elvira is a 1 year old female with a lovely gray tone. These 2 are a bonded pair, with Sleepy being the more outgoing, and Elvira a little more cautious. Both are very loving and will definitely come to you for a favorite treat. Both have been with us for awhile, Sleepy since 2018 so we will be excited when they find their FurEver Homes! Will it be yours? 
 
 
 
Ana Fisia & BeBe were surrendered to us April 1 from a family that was no longer able to care for the bunnies. Ana Fisia has been chipped and spayed and BeBe is on the schedule to get fixed. Both bunnies are around 5 years old and very friendly. BeBe LOVES to chew on her cardboard hidey box, always making a new entrance. She’s funny! Ana Fisia is slightly shyer than her friend, but just needs a few minutes to warm up to you. BeBe would be considered a “Foster to Adopt”, until she is spayed, then she will officially be yours!
 
 
 
 
 
Gash & Donut are a pair of bonded males who have been chipped, vaccinated & fixed. They were actually adopted with another bunny, Little Foot, and all 3 were returned to us April 10th. They family decided that having bunnies were not a good fit for them. Little Foot will be bonded with another bunny, so its just these 2 together. They are both very friendly and curious. 
 
 
 
Morticia & Hawk are a Mother & Son bonded pair of bunnies. Morticia is almost 1 year and Hawk is 3 months old. As “babies” are, Hawk is very curious and playful and will typically come to the edge of the pen to see what’s going on. Morticia has been spayed, chipped & vaccinated and Hawk has been chipped and is scheduled for a neuter June 1st. This would be a “Foster to Adopt” for Hawk, but as soon as he has been fixed, he will be your bunny!
 
 
Tibby came to us April 28th when someone dropped the bunny off at the park entrance booth. They said they found it on the side of the road. Humm…… This bunny is young, very easy going, friendly and looks like a female. Guessing on the age of the bunny, she is most likely NOT SPAYED. If she is adopted before she is fixed, she would be a “FOSTER TO ADOPT”, which means she is our bunny until she is fixed. She also would need to be chipped and vaccinated, so that might mean 2 trips to the vet.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Princess Leia & Han Solo are a bonded brother & sister. They are a little over 3 months old and are scheduled to be fixed May 17th. They are currently being kept in separate pens, and after they are fixed they will be reunited and adopted out together as a pair. As babies go, they are both adorable, love to play and very curious. 
 
 
 
Happy and Grumpy are 2 year old bonded brothers. Happy is brown and Grumpy is black. These bunnies would do well in a home without a lot of noise or chaos. Both are fully vaccinated, chipped & fixed and looking for their FurEver homes.
 
 
 
 
 
Storm & Sanchez are a bonded male & female pair, and both have been fixed, chipped & vaccinated. They recently spent time at a Fosters, where they were socialized and given a ton of love and attention. They both will come to you for a treat and some loving and are ready for their FurEver Home!
 
 
 
Marybeth & Bernice are a female bonded pair. They were part of the original rescue and have been with us since 2017, so they would be going to 4 years here. They were recently adopted back in February, but the woman brought them back to us, as she felt these 2 were not a good fit for her. They both used to be very shy, kind of on the feral side, but they are a lot more friendly. They still need a little more socialization but they are both very sweet bunnies.  They have been fixed, chipped and vaccinated and looking for their FurEver Homes.  Will you be the one to give them a chance?
These 2 girls are at a fosters being socialized and pampered. If you want to see them, please let us know.
 
 
 
 

Buster is currently at a fosters. If you would like to meet him just let us know.                                                      Buster  was recently bonded but it didn’t work out so he still available as a single, he is 2 1/2 years old and has been chipped, vaccinated & fixed. He is currently at a fosters house, but if you want to meet him we can make arrangements. He is a very chill bunny and takes everything in stride. According to his foster, “he will follow you around the kitchen, looking for a petting”. 

 

Honey & Bee are currently not at the park, but if you would like to meet them, please let us know.                      Honey and Bee are from the original Floyd Lamb Rescue back in 2018, so they are probably close to 3 years old. They were both adopted at the beginning of 2020, but unfortunately were returned. They are a little shy and are cautious about change. They are looking for someone who is willing to be patient with them, and let them earn their trust at their pace.

Blitz and Frosty are up for adoption but are not currently on site. Blitz has a genetic eye issue that requires her to be on eye meds, probably for the rest of her life. Blitz is the sweetest bunny you will ever meet and has total trust in you handling her. If you are interested in fostering or adopting this pair, please let us know.

We are currently holding public adoption events at Floyd Lamb Park every Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM. 

We will still also continue to do “private” bunny adoptions by “appointment only” as well on other days!

To visit the bunnies at Floyd Lamb Park, from the 215, exit to 95 north to Durango Blvd, go right (NE). Follow Durango to Brent Lane (Entrance to the park is N. Durango & Brent Lane) and take a right (E). This will take you to the entrance booth. After the entrance booth ($6 a car but free for Veterans & Handicapped – Discounts for Seniors), take the first paved road right and proceed towards the white fence (there are always 2 big dumpsters on the right-hand side. Continue to drive on the road and through the white fence.  Follow the paved road about a 1/4 mile our building will be straight ahead on the right (original Cow Building). It has stalls for animals (cows) in front of it.
Please do not use your GPS for Floyd Lamb Park, 9200 Tule Springs Rd as it will take you to a back area of the park.

Adoption prices are as follows:

$100 each for all bunnies  Most of our rescued bunnies have been vaccinated and chipped.  However, not all have been fixed as their rescues have not been fully funded yet. Surrenders we receive are usually not vaccinated, chipped or fixed.  In these cases, we are asking for a donation (adoption fee) to pay for most of the cost of the spay or neuter, regardless if it has been done yet. Most of our bunnies have already been bonded and we do not separate them. We occasionally have singles, however, bunnies are social animals and love a friend.  In general, we do not recommend a single bunny living by themselves. Every adoption includes the following equipment:

X-Pen, 2 litter boxes, 25 lb bag of woody pellets for the litter boxes, 25 lb bag of alfalfa bunny food pellets, a large bag of Timothy hay, food bowl, water bowl, tarp, nail clippers, hidey box, a used pet carrier (donated to us) and of course, your bunnies! Just the equipment package is easily valued at over $125.00

In the event one or both of your bunnies need to be fixed, it will be considered an “Foster to Adopt”. By current City and County ordinances, we cannot adopt out a bunny that has not been fixed. You will fill out the appropriate paperwork, pay for the bunnies/equipment and make an appointment for the spay/neuter with our vet. Once your bunny or bunnies have been fixed, we will send you your chip transfer email for you to confirm ownership of your bunnies.

Payment for the spay/neuter can be paid through us or directly to Southern Hills Animal Hospital, using the link below.

So you want to adopt a bunny?  

How to adopt

The first step is to complete our BUNNY ADOPTION APPLICATION.

Read our rabbit information packet   Bunnies Matter Information Packet

To be sure adopting a rabhttp://bunniesmatter.org/wp-content/ubit is right for you, we also recommend that you read a rabbit care book, such as the “The Bunny Burrow Rabbit Care Guide” which the www.TheBunnyBurrow.org has allowed us to share with you!

Which one (or two) do I choose?

You’ll find a terrific selection of rabbits at our adoption events waiting to meet someone just like you. If you find one you love, please put his or her name in your adoption form.

Please note that most of our rabbits have a rabbit friend (bonded pair) which helps them from being lonely when you are at school or work.

We do not break up these bonded pairs; they must be adopted together.

If you aren’t sure which bunny is right for you, our adoption specialists love playing matchmaker!

What happens after I apply?

After we look over your application, we will talk with you about the rabbit(s) you’d like to adopt, and tell you more about any special needs they might have.

The fun part: How do I get my new rabbit(s)?

We encourage adopters to come to Floyd Lamb Park to meet their potential new rabbit(s) on the weekend after viewing online here or on Facebook.  Please text message us via phone (562) 373-5376 or Facebook so we can make sure we can have the bunny or bunnies you want available as many are fostered.  Once everyone agrees it’s a good fit, you can return to pick up your bunnies.

All rabbits are required by to be spayed or neutered and vetted by current City and County ordinances. 

If you are interested in adopting, please message us on Facebook or email at  LasVegasBunniesMatter@gmail.com or text at (562) 373-5376.

Here are some additional things you may need to know.

First, bunnies are inside pets ONLY.  Yes, they need to go outside and get some sun and play in the grass, but they are INDOOR pets ONLY.

When baby bunnies are sold for $20 – $30, that is really about $230 because they are now required to be fixed by law plus they can live longer lives if fixed (over 10 years)! If you don’t fix them, many will spray all over the place to mark their territory.

Correct bunny housing requires the correct equipment (exercise pens $35+ each, carrier=-$25+, litter boxes-$5+, paper litter-$14+ for 25#s, water and food dishes-$1 at $1 store, toys-$???, etc.), you are looking easily at a $200+ investment overall just for one or two little bunnies including their adoption fee. At Bunnies Matter, everything you need to get you started with your new family member is included! 

At Bunnies Matter, we prefer to adopt out our bunnies as bonded pairs because when you are at work or school all day, at least they still have each other for company. Occasionally we will have singles or triplets available but we believe bonded pairs are the best way to go.

An ideal house would have no other pets but rabbits can get along with many dogs or cats, you just have to be careful and a bunny should never be left alone with a dog or a cat.

A bunny is not a starter pet for a small child. No one under 6 should probably have a bunny and if a child is under 12, there needs to be close adult supervision to make sure the bunny is being properly taken care of.

Here are just a few of our recent adoptions!
