Already own a bun? MHRR offers small services to the rabbit owners in our area, including nail trims as well as grooming. We can do nail trims for your bunny, or show you how to do it on your own. Dark nails? No problem. We'll show you the tricks to keep it safe and what to do in case of a struggle. Not sure how to groom your bunny or are they going through a heavy molt? Stop by during one of our Care Days and we can show you how! We can also clean scent glands.
We also offer boarding and bun-sitting in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas.
We can help you confirm their gender and we also offer spay/neuter assistance.
If you don't have a bunny yet but want to learn more about bunny care, or just want to visit with lots of cute bunnies, come to one of our Care Days! There you can visit with the rabbits, learn how to do a physical exam and nail trim, or help clean and socialize the adoptables. Not sure what supplies to buy? We use a variety of products - different types of food bowls, bedding, cages, etc., and can show you the difference on many of them and the benefits of each.
MHRR's website has lots of rabbit care information - everything from types of bunny toys to how to litterbox train your rabbit! Have questions? Check out the Resources area of our website or email us! We gladly answer any bunny care or health questions.
*There is no charge for us to go to your event or meeting. If you would like to offer a donation it is greatly appreciated but not required.*
MHRR can host a booth at all different types of events, such as church, school, or scout fairs, craft shows, and more. At our booth we can offer many services, with the main attraction being bunny-petting! We will bring our exercise pens for the rabbits to run and play, and children are allowed to pet the bunnies. If allowed, we will gladly do a fundraiser as well, such as t-shirt or jewelry sales or face painting.
MHRR also makes classroom or daycare visits. We bring one or two of our rabbits to demonstrate rabbit care and talk all about rabbits, which can include up-close views of herbivore teeth and hands-on feeling of different types of rabbit fur. We also tie this in to pet responsibility (spay/neuter, don't release pets into the wild) and pet ownership (what is involved in keeping a pet rabbit?). For scouts, we will gladly go over badgework requirements with you ahead of time so that we can tailor the presentation to your goals.
Volunteering at a Care Day can be a fun way to earn service hours for scouts or school. Care Day is held outdoors, so come dressed for the weather and to possibly get dirty, and definitely hairy! :) If you'd like to come to a Care Day, please let us know! We'll give you directions and see you there.
Please contact us if you would like us to be at your next event or group meeting by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
