I realize that I should be impartial and equally excited for each and every bun that is successfully adopted out to a forever home. This recent adoption has me SO happy though, that I can’t help but dance about and shout from nearby rooftops!
Trudy is a special bun and one that I personally fostered for many months. It took an afternoon to catch her. It took many surgeries over many months to heal her from injuries sustained during her time living outdoors. Practically feral when caught, it took many months to earn her trust. Nearly a year later, with the help of many people at the Center, Trudy became a healthy, adorable bun.
To those of us who knew her well, we could just tell she was longing for a bunny companion. Trudy’s wishes came true the day Ponce was brought to the Center to do some bunny “speed dating.” From the start, Ponce and Trudy looked relaxed with one another and Ponce’s mom thought Trudy was precious. They went home together that day for a trial bonding.
They didn’t need much of a trial and by that night, Trudy and Ponce accepted each other as partners. Now Trudy has a wonderful home with a very caring new mommy and a beautiful Lop eared boyfriend named Ponce. I for one could not be happier! I still miss taking care of Trudy but I couldn’t have written a happier ending for her story if I tried.
Enjoy your new life, Trudy! You are so very deserving of it!

Original Post: Trudy is a darling with fuzzy fur and a sweet attitude. She was one of the 5 babies we rescued after they had been let loose outside to survive on sticks and leaves. Once she was caught, we discovered that her right hind leg bone was protruding through the skin. Surgery was done to repair it but there is no tendon in that area now, so she often rests on her back elbow. That doesn’t slow her down one bit though!
She is fast and hops up on boxes and shelves and does binkies, even if a little lopsided. Which really makes her that much cuter we think. Trudy has responded beautifully to love and attention. She is in a foster home, so give us some advance notice if you want to meet her. She is a special girl but we don’t consider her special needs because of her foot. We just want her to have lots of love.
Below is a photo that shows Trudy’s foot. As you can see, it is misshapen some due to the fact that the tendon that would normally straighten the foot, was damaged by her injury. Aside from it looking a little different and her leaning a little bit to one side at times, her foot doesn’t slow her down any.
