Late Bloomers Club


Artwork by Carol Chen - Thank you, Carol!

The Late Bloomer Club is a group of special needs bunnies with significant medical and physical challenges who live in sanctuary at SaveABunny. They are not available for adoption. Some Late Bloomers are disabled and need daily care. Some are senior bunnies including retired SaveABunny Ambassadors (bunnies who spent their "working years" teaching the public about bunnies as pets). And some are "hospice" bunnies with incurable medical conditions who join the Bloomers to live out the remainder of their time in peace and comfort.

The Bloomers live happily as a group in a large indoor pen Clubhouse furnished with all the amenities befitting a luxury retirement home like fluffy fleece bedding, warm heat lamps, handicap litter boxes, toys, greens and treats. On most days they can be found snuggling in a big, contented bunny pile, peacefully living up to their Club motto “It’s never too late to be happy!”

Once a bunny joins the Late Bloomer Club they are a member forever, a part of an ongoing legacy of remembrance and love for these extra special bunnies, even after they pass on.

Here is the story of the Late Bloomers as a group, from today and tracing back to when the group began in November 2014. For the story of each individual bunny, please click on their photo directly below.
