Older Bunnies Need Permanent Fostering: Some of our shelter buns are older and it is sad that they might never know the joy of living in a home with a parent who loves them.
We cover medical expenses for fosters and we offer a foster discount on food and supplies. If you can offer a temporary or permanent home, please contact Joy: email@example.com
One evening, I left the shelter through the back door and noticed a pile of trash bags that contained the contents of litter boxes that had been changed. Now, I have learned that the waste is being collected and delivered to a garden where food is grown for the needy. The garden is at the Church of the Good Shepherd on Mason at Clayton Road. The fresh produce is then given to Circle of Concern, a food pantry. Bunny poop is rich in nutrients and a welcome alternative to expensive fertilizer.
Note: Dumping your litter boxes directly on plants will kill them but you can use it as mulch (remove excess hay first) and place it around plants. Or, compost it for a year. A member told us her compost bin really started "cooking" when she added litter waste to it.
Will You Help Us Prevent Suffering?
We like to keep things happy in Happenings but, sometimes, we have to talk about bad things and address them. We are providing links so it is very easy for you to make your voice heard.
Item 1. Please send a message to the Missouri Legislature objecting to House Bill 479 that would prevent abused animals from being confiscated. Animals would remain in the care of their abusers rather than going to the safe haven of a shelter.
Just click on the link and fill out the simple form. Please do this as soon as you can.
Item 2. Please sign a petition to stop cruelty at Pel-Freez, the largest rabbit slaughterhouse in the nation. We suggest you do not look at the photos, just sign the petition. Your signature could lessen the suffering of rabbits destined for the dinner table or fur market. Please do this as soon as you can.
