Is it OK to buy that puppy????






I think our society needs a huge "Wake-up" call. As a shelter manager, I am going to share a little insight with you all...a view from the inside if you will.First off, all of you breeders/sellers should be made to work in the "back" of an animal shelter for just one day. Maybe if you saw the life drain from a few sad, lost, confused eyes, you would change your mind about breeding and selling to people you don't even know.That puppy you just sold will most likely end up in my shelter when it's not a cute little puppy anymore.

Please Don't Kidnap Me!

Bunnies are one of the most frequently “kidnapped” mammal species.

*Mothers dig a very shallow nest in the ground that is easily uncovered when mowing or raking the yard. If you find a rabbit nest-leave it alone!!

Mother rabbits only return to the nest two or three times a day, usually before dawn and right after dusk. 

*To determine if they are orphaned, either place a string across the nest in a tic-tac-toe shape or circle the nest with flour. Check the nest the next day. If the string or flour is disturbed, the mother has returned.
