National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week  
November 2-8, 2008 

Shelters RockIn 1996, the Humane Society  of the United States launched National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week.
This campaign was designed to acknowledge and promote the invaluable role shelters play in their communities and to increase public awareness of animal welfare issues and shelter services.
During National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, the first full week of every November, we celebrate animal shelters across the country and the people who make them possible.

While you're away, we'll take care of your precious bunnies like one of the family .

Desperate for Play Chips   
We have been unable find non-cedar play chips for the Carnation annex and things are getting soggy.
(Unfortuantely we can't use beauty bark, shavings, chippings with lots of pine needles or play chips with cedar as these are unsafe for the buns.)
If you can help, please email Angie at angie@rabbithaven.org
Thank you

We are looking for someone who could come two to three days a week for about three hours.  PLEASE contact us if you are interested in volunteering or helping out in the warren.
