Baby Bunnies and more at the GMSPCA

A couple of weeks ago, I photographed some more adoptable pets at the Greater Moncton SPCA and it’s a miracle that I got out of there without bringing half of them home. They have the most adorable baby bunnies right now, and their mom, “Sweetness” is just lovely, too. I was most tempted by “Twitch”, though - a beautiful, big, calm boy and such a beautiful silver colour! Remember that bunnies make awesome pets, but they are work and with proper care can be a 10 year + commitment.

Yeah, yeah, the babies are cute - but don’t forget their lovely mom, Sweetness and handsome Twitch are looking for homes, too!

They also have a ton of lovely cats and dogs at the moment, including a couple with special needs. Rupert the Siamese mix is missing a front leg, and Blue the Shepherd/Rottie mix is missing a hind leg. In general, animals do just fine on 3 legs, but a home with many levels may not be ideal as stairs can be an issue.

Some of these pets have already been adopted as of the time I’m writing this, and more may have been adopted by the time you’re reading it, so it’s a good idea to call or check the GMSPCA website before you rush over to adopt one of them.

Barney And Thumper, Bonded Bunnies at Moncton SPCA

Barney and Thumper are a lovely, bonded pair of rabbits waiting for their forever home at the Greater Moncton SPCA.

A few weeks ago, I photographed a whole bunch of dogs, cats, rats, and even a pair of budgies for the Moncton SPCA. I’m delighted to report that ALL have been adopted, except for this sweet pair of buns. I’ve lived with many house rabbits myself over the years, and while I don’t recommend them as “starter pets” (they are a 10 year + commitment, definitely not an Easter novelty gift for children!), they are very engaged and rewarding pets, with personality +++.

Rabbits are highly social and many that are kept on their own with little interaction or enrichment can become bored and destructive. A bonded pair is the perfect solution, but it can be tricky introducing unfamiliar bunnies, so a ready made pair like Barney and Thumper is a big bonus!

If you are considering adding a rabbit to your home, the House Rabbit Society is an excellent resource.

To check if Barney and Thumper are still available, visit the GMSPCA.

Here are some of the other pets I photographed at the Moncton SPCA last month. All of these lucky pets got snapped up by their forever homes before I even had a chance to post them!

Our Pack Rescue Dogs

Athena, Iris, and Jasper are rescue dogs looking for forever families while in the care of Our Pack Animal Rescue, Moncton, NB.

Athena, Iris, and Jasper are rescue dogs looking for forever families while in the care of Our Pack Animal Rescue, Moncton, NB.

Last week, I had the privilege of meeting and photographing these 3 lovely dogs for Our Pack Animal Rescue in Moncton, NB.

Athena is a 3 year old pitty mix who can be a little bit reactive with strangers and unfamiliar dogs at first. She was a little wary of us in the beginning, especially my partner Graham who was wearing a hat and sunglasses, but she warmed up quickly with treats! Athena would prefer to be the only pet in the home because she doesn’t like to share and will want her family all to herself. Once she knows you, she is a major cuddle bug.

Iris is a sweet and friend American Staffordshire mix. Not surprisingly, she can be a bit of a bull in a china shop, but she calms down nicely after a few minutes. Iris has some skin issues that are suspected to be caused by allergies, so she may require a special diet and ongoing veterinary care.

Jasper is a super handsome German Shepherd mix. He can be fearful when first meeting new people, but quickly transforms into a happy go lucky guy. His foster home has him involved in dog sports like flyball and canicross, and that is helping to build his confidence and socialization skills. He’d be a great dog for an active home that would like to continue participating in dog sports.

If you are interested in meeting any of these dogs, please contact Our Pack Animal Rescue for more info, and to see if they are still available. (These posts my not be updated when the dogs are adopted).
