Welcome to the HelloGiggles Rabbit Cam!
We are proud to introduce Nigel & Prudence of The Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation
We will be broadcasting live all day to show you just what it is like to care for rabbits. Unfortunately, this time of year, a lot of people abandon bunnies and rabbits that were given as Easter gifts.
Nigel & Prudence were lucky enough to be rescued by The Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation where they will live until they are adopted.
You will notice a little house in the middle of the play area today too.
Nigel & Prudence were given the gift of a Cottontail Cottage yesterday by the creator/inventor Amy Spintman.
Their cottage has 3 levels (the floors for the two upper levels are made with double-wall cardboard for extra strength) with ramps between levels for easy jumping access and is made of chew-safe cardboard and printed with soy-based ink!

The Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation works very hard to find loving and proper homes for all of their fosters.
BEFORE YOU ADOPT, PLEASE CONSIDER:
- Are you prepared for a commitment of 10+ years to the bunny? What will you do if you move, get married or have children – or if your children lose interest?
- Do you have animals that could endanger the rabbit (many dogs were bred to capture small animals, and rabbits have been known to die of fright without being physically attacked)? Will you be available to supervise your children when they’re around the rabbit? Rabbits are delicate and easily injured.
- Rabbits are not low maintenance pets: preparing veggies, cleaning the litterbox, providing the attention your pet craves (and needs) all require time and a daily commitment. Which adult in the family will be the primary caregiver?
- Does everyone in your family want a rabbit? Does anyone have allergies or asthma? Hay is a necessary part of a rabbit’s diet.
- Can you afford the care of a bunny? Rabbits cost $50-100/month and up. Veterinarians consider them ‘exotics’, so vet care tends to be expensive.
- Do you have the room? You’ll need to have space for a pen, or a room that can be sectioned off for the bunny to live in, but still have the rabbit involved in the home’s daily activities.

The Los Angeles Rabbit Foundations mission is to help abandoned domestic rabbits by promoting spay and neuter, providing education on their care, volunteering in shelters and humane societies, and by fostering and rehabilitating rescued rabbits until such time as suitable permanent homes can be found.
Please spay or neuter your pets!
