Senate Bill Banning 'street' sales of Animals is signed by Governor Brown!!!!

Please cross post everywhere!!!!

California got it right!!!

Senate Bill 917 is Signed into Law!

This is great news for all animals, especially the all-too-familiar Santee Alley baby bunnies sold in downtown Los Angeles!  Please email Senator Ted Lieu and thank him for introducing the bill and fighting to make sure it passed and also to Governor Brown for signing the bill.  Believe it or not, there was much opposition to the bill by rabbit breeders [ugh!] and dog breeders and canine AKC clubs, etc…

Please let them know how thankful we are for their efforts.  The bill goes into effect on January 1, 2012!

State Senator Ted Lieu:

Governor Jerry Brown:

good info on washing veggies for your bunbuns...

home vegetable wash

It's important to wash your veggies before feeding. Here's a recipe for
an inexpensive home vegetable wash: 2 cups water, 2 cups vinegar, 2
T baking soda and 2 T lemon juice.) Water and soap alone won't remove
most pesticides as they are designed to adhere to the fruit through rain and
other pollutants. You actually need a little acid (vinegar and lemon juice)
to break them. You can keep the wash in a spray bottle, just spray, let it sit for several
seconds, then rinse off.

Vote for San Diego House Rabbit Society @ The Animal Rescue Site!!!

Welcome to The Animal Rescue Site $300,000 Shelter+ Challenge of 2011
— with

Now you can help The Animal Rescue Site choose which eligible animal rescue organizations will receive special funds to help animals! It's easy:

 · Select your Country and (if U.S. or Canada) State/Province.
 · Optional fields accept partial (but not misspelled/inaccurate) information.
 · You can cast one vote every day for your favorite rescue organization.

Voting begins Monday, July 4th!

Having trouble finding your favorite rescue organization?

Please double-check your spelling to make sure it's correct and matches your organization's exact name. If you're not sure, use just part of their name, spelled correctly. It'll turn up!
Note that "optional" fields are not required for your search, and that they accept partial information. For example, you could enter "Lon" instead of "London" in the "City" field, and "Fluff" or "Farm" instead of "Fluffy's Famous Farm For Family Furballs" in the "Shelter Name" Field.
Since U.S. Territories, such as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, are part of the international category, they can now be found using the Country dropdown rather than the U.S. state dropdown.
Remember that, to be eligible, the rescue organization must be a registered member of!

Can you help Brambley Hedge? They'll transport these kids to a safe place anywhere!

Sent: Mon, Jul 11, 2011 9:56 am

Subject: Large Rescue - Can you help?

Maybe you could help or pass this on to someone you know who could help with this situation.  If you are full, we understand, and a simple reply of "we have no room" would be helpful.

Brambley Hedge always tries to respond to requests for any bunnies in need. Our shelter and all our foster homes are completely filled up, overflowing in fact and we are way over capacity. When we received this call for help we had to say we were full. In an effort to keep these bunnies from being euthanized we are reaching out to shelters all over the country.

There are approximately thirty plus bunnies in urgent need of homes. All of these bunnies are adults, between the ages of one to four years old. They have all had health checks and they are all spayed or neutered.  Brambley Hedge will provide transportation to anywhere in the US that can offer shelter for these bunnies. Brambley will also provide micro chips for each bunny.

These are not Brambley Hedge bunnies, we are just trying to help and hope that some shelters somewhere will find a little more space. These rabbits do not have to all go to one place.

Please put your networks and friends to work on this.

You can send all inquiries to the above email address.  We will get back to you immediately.

Thanks so much,

Erika Smith Royal
