From Valerie of Dayton, OR

Mine is an animal-loving household--home to several cats, a dog, and a rabbit. My mom and I had recently experienced the devastating loss of our beloved 8-year old rabbit due to age-related causes. We were feeling an emptiness in our hearts and home and jointly made the decision, a month later, that we were ready to welcome another bunny into our lives. Of utmost importance to us was adopting a rabbit from a conscientious facility/individual. Perusals of newspapers, internet sites, and private parties eventually led us to Intrigued we saw that rescue shelters were a part of the mix...much to our delight. Helping these types of organizations was of high priority. Lots of terrific organizations and adoptable--not to mention ADORABLE-- bunnies were viewed, but we were particularly attracted to the mission of Phoebe's Rabbit Haven...and a golden guy named Butterscotch. In short order, a meet-and-greet was arranged and a love-match made. From the moment I met with Winter Burton I was impressed. She was fully committed to the welfare of the rabbits and ensuring that went to truly caring homes only. Her assistant that day was her daughter, who was well-versed in all things rabbit! Such a delight it was to have her share her profound knowledge and love of bunnies with me! So impressed with the values her mother instilled in her was I! Although all of the rabbits visited were divine, I still felt a connection to Butterscotch--his snuggles, his nose kisses, his energy, his good looks...EVERYTHING! An adoption was made!!! After his successful neuter was completed, he went home to Dayton, Oregon, where we enjoys an extremely roomy indoor-only cage, ample cuddles and kisses, and daily house "hop abouts!" Butterscotch loves to snuggle on one's lap, and greets all with a cheery gaze through his cage. Thanks for the love and happiness connection, PRH :o)!
