My Intro to Red Door

I found Red Door Animal Shelter after I had to put my buddy, Kramer, to sleep. We only got spend six years together, but he had been there for me through thick and thin and his absence made my apartment too sad and too quiet to endure. I wasn't sure I was making the right decision, in getting a new pet(s) so quickly after he passed, but not hearing his little bunny pitter-patter under the bed every morning just made me miss him and started my day with a lot of sadness.

             I filled out an application online to adopt a rabbit or two through the shelter. Toni, the head of adoptions, got right back to me and set up a phone interview for the next day. After talking to her on the phone, I was not only really excited to meet the bunnies at the shelter, but also really excited to see the shelter. Just in the short interview, Toni had given me all kinds of tips and information about rabbit care that I had never heard before that I wish I had. 
            My friend Anne joined me when I went to the shelter to meet a couple bonded pairs. I was pretty set on getting a pair that were already bonded. I met several bunnies, including Swatch and Rolex. They were brothers and were really friendly and energetic. I knew they were the guys for me. Bringing them home, I was the happiest I had been since Kramer passed. 
First night in their new home.
            That night, I also got to train to volunteer at the shelter. I've since been coming in regularly to help set the bunnies up in their exercise pens for the day and clean their litter. It's a really fun way to get to know the buns and see their personalities. Everyone at Red Door really cares about the animals and is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I learn a ton about how to better care for my buns every time I work. Now I'm hooked. I'm totally addicted to spending time at Red Door.
