(We were asked to pass along a very important message from “The Bunz” of Cottontail Cottage. Here it is:)
TO ALL OF OUR FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS!!!
As we are sure you have already heard, this Saturday, October 12th, is ”Open Shelter Day” here at The Bunny Barn!! YAY!!!! These are always fun and magical times for us – and for all who come to meet us for the first time and those who have visited before. So…… we have decided to make this day EVEN BETTER!! There will be “Special Surprise” Cottontail Cottage Prize Drawings – held throughout the day! To further celebrate, we are sponsoring a “Come Check-Out Our New Digs at the Rabbitat Gift Bag Raffle”!! This will include:
- 1 large Yankee Jar Candle –Spiced Pumpkin
- 1 large Yankee Jar Candle – Macintosh
- And a beautiful + unique Illuma-Lid Bunny Jar Candle Topper!!
Raffle Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. They will be sold from 11:00AM-3:00PM and The Drawing will be held at 3:30PM. You need not be present to win!
In honor of the harvest season, “Our Humans” are providing light refreshments including Cider + Apples + Cookies for your enjoyment (free of charge. Tips Appreciated.) There will also be Bunny Cookies (Five-Star Rabbit Rating) available for purchase (and we can tell you, your bunnies will LOVE them) as well as our French Vintage Rabbit Mugs + Organic T-shirts. 100% Rabbit Profit. We also wish to invite the Public to Bring Their Own Pet Bunnies To Visit + have their nails trimmed (our humans will also teach you how) By Donation. We will have some rabbits available for adoption (to approved homes only).
Event is from 11am – 3pm and is Free To the Public! Families + children are welcome. We do ask that children are told ahead of time that they must be Very Quiet + do not run while at the Cottage and especially inside the Bunny Barn so they don’t scare us (we are easily frightened) + if you are bringing vegetables for us, please ask Our Humans first. Some of us are old and have digestion problems. There will be No Admittance Inside The Rabbitat (where us sanctuary rabbits live outdoors in a natural + co-existing lifestyle.) However, Guided Tours May Be Held.
We are looking forward to seeing everybody + everybunny!!!!
