Hello and Welcome to the first event of its kind – Winter Bunderland!
The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the bunny program at Lincoln County Humane Society. The funds go towards the supplies, care and vet bills (spay, neuter, medications and other procedures) for the bunnies. A rabbit is a wonderful pet to welcome into your home and this event gives you an opportunity to meet some bunnies, learn about them and support LCHS in the wonderful care they provide for these little boopersnoots!
This event will host local vendors and crafters, a kids craft table, bake sale, cafe as well as bunnies from LCHS that are available for both foster and adoption!
I would be grateful (and I’m sure the bunnies would be too!) to see you there – maybe you will find a furry friend that speaks to your heart that will make its way into your home furever!
