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

FEATURED BUNNY  – March 7, 2021

STREAK & SNOWBALL  are a Mother & Son bonded pair. Snowball is a white Holland Lop and Lionhead mix, and Streak, her son is a Lionhead. Snowball was rescued in 2016 and she was about 1 at the time. So she is 5 and her son Streak was born August of 2017, so he is 3 1/2 years old. Both are very social able, loves to be petted and loved. Neither one will object to nail trims, or mouth checks and are very easy to handle. These 2 do need the occasional brushing due to their lovey “manes”, but they enjoy that as well.
These 2 are perfect pets, and will be a great addition to your home. They have been fixed, but still need to get vaccinated. Who’s going to give these 2 your LOVE?  
As with all of our adoptions, you will receive a COMPLETE set up, no need to go out any buy your supplies. We give you EVERYTHING to get started. 
 

 

 

 

 

Fabio is currently not at the park, but rather getting pampered by a foster.  Ahhh, Fabio!! Look at that hair, I mean Fur! Fabio was brought to us a week ago, and because he was found we don’t know that much about him except he is a boy. He is a little frightened right now, so will need a little TLC before he can be adopted. So stay tuned!

 

Streak and Snowball will need to be vaccinated before they will be available for adoption. Streak and Snowball were surrendered to un on February 13th from a couple who will be moving overseas and couldn’t take them with them. They are mother and son and Snowball is the mom. The owner didn’t know how old Snowball was, but when she rescued her in the fall of 2017, she was at least 1 year old. Both of these buns are absolutely adorable, and very loveable. Both do not mind being handles, (Nail trim, teeth check) and love snuggles and kisses. As with any Lionhead bunny, they will need regular brushing as part of their routine. They are both fixed.

 

Monica is a super soft 10-month-old Agouti (Black/Brown speckled) with lovely black piping on the tips of her long, sensuous ears and a copper red spot between her shoulders.  She is calm, quiet, and relaxed. She has the most beautiful dark liquid eyes that you can imagine. You would never know that she suffered a broken leg when she was just a baby. With our help and a wonderful vet, Monica was able to recover, but occasionally shows a little limited movement in that left leg/foot. Lucy is a beautiful coal black, 7-month-old female with dark eyes and a curious nature.  Together they are magic!   Lucy accepts being gently picked up and having her ears and jaw-line stroked while Monica is a bit more reserved. That is not to say that she doesn’t enjoy being groomed by her partner or being loved up by people, just that she does best if you have been bunny respectful and bunny polite by taking the time to allow her to feel secure and comfortable with your affection.  These bunnies are young but mature and are bonded so they will not be separated. As with all Bunnies Matter Adoptees, this loving couple has been chipped, vaccinated and are schedule for a trip to the Vet in early March (for you know what…) In the meantime, they can be fostered in their future Bunny Parents’ home.  Once their surgeries are complete, their adoption can be formalized and its Home, Sweet Home for this adorable pair!

Frankie # 2 is currently being fostered and is not available for adoption at this time. Frankie #2  is just a year and is super friendly. Here is his account from our foster: “Frankie is a beautiful black and white “Dutch” bunny that we have had the pleasure to foster. He is a bit shy but develops confidence quickly in a safe and loving environment. He socializes with our three other pet bunnies confidently but is a little shy with people. He has begun to take treats from my wife’s hand and she is thrilled by this display of trust. Frankie enjoys being petted and having his ears and jaw line stroked and his will sit quietly on your lap some some time without incident. I believe that Frankie would do best with a fixed female in a bonded pair where his affectionate nature would have a natural outlet. His coat is smooth and soft and his temperament is gentle. He is a sweet heart!”

Sleepy is a member of the legendary Bunny Matter “7 Dwarfs” Litter. Seven tiny baby bunnies were dumped and the Bunny Matter Community came together and worked around the clock to ensure that all seven survived, thrived, and grew up to be model citizens of the Bunny Matter community.  We were successful and Sleepy and his bonded mate – the lovely Elvira are up for adoption. Sleepy is an onynx black male with dark eyes and Elvira is a lovely gray tone. These two are very calm, very quiet, and very relaxed.  They are one- and one-half years and just under one year old respectively.  These are mature house rabbits who are fully litter box trained, fully bonded to one another and just need a bit of time and some patience to become secure, confident, and affectionate in their new home.  As with all Bunnies Matter adoptees, 100% of the adoption fee goes toward the cost of vaccinations, chipping, spaying/neutering, the cost of a premium 4’ X 4’ pen, a watering unit, food bowl, and 25 lbs. each of bunny kibble and bedding pellets (nearly 3 months’ worth of food and bedding). So aside from proving love and patience, new Bunny Parents for these two are all set!

Dori and Rudi are bonded 7mo old sisters – one is peach, the other coal black. They are committed to each other and will be adopted as a pair. Dori likes heights and will perch on anything to get a better view while Rudi likes to keep all four paws firmly planted on the ground. These two really enjoy being gently petted and stroked around their faces and each with extra points for light scratching on their noses, the sides of their faces and and along their lower jaw. They WILL let you know when you hit the “right ” spot by leaning in and turning their heads to improve access. They are very personable but will remain a bit aloof until they’re sure you’re not up to any mischief. Once they feel comfortable, they come on over to check you out – and to see if you have any treats. Dori’s favorite is Carrots while Rudi loves her Apples. As with all Bunnies Matter adoptees, both girls have been chipped and vaccinated, and will be fixed on March 3rd. Why not check these two out at our next adoption event which occurs every Saturday.

 

These two bunnies are not on site. It you want to meet them just 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 this pair, please let us know.

 

These 2 bunnies are currently being fostered and will be available soon. Apollo and Kyrene are brother & sister and are 2 1/2 years old. They are slightly reserved and would also do well with someone who is willing to be patient to earn their trust, and give them the love and affection that they deserve. They are both very sweet!

Starting on 10/17/2020, we are going to start public adoption events again 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:

$80 total for all of the “original” bonded pairs from the Floyd Lamb Park rescue including a full bunny starter kit. These bunnies have all been fully funded and have been vaccinated, chipped and fixed. We do not separate any bonded pairs of bunnies. 

$100 each for all bunnies rescued or received after October 2019.. Most of these 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 cannot 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. 

Regardless of the price, all adoptions will receive the following:

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, used carrier (donated to us) and of course, your bunnies! Just the equipment package is easily valued at over $125.00


Currently payment for adoptions can only be made to our GoFundMe page at:

(https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-us-save-the-nw-vegas-dumpsite-bunnies)

OR via Paypal to paypal.me/DaveSchweiger 


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 done 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!
