$200 will be donated for every closed home referred to the Backmann Real Estate Team during the month of May in the Buyers or Sellers name to assist the Fur-Ever Home Rescue (FEHR) Bunny Division.

Who do you know starting the process looking to buy or sell a home in May?

FEHR is in DIRE need of funds to help support the recent influx of dumped Easter bunnies. Within just ONE WEEK following Easter, the FEHR Bunny Division has been asked to place 14 bunnies into their rescue, largely in part due to the massive number of displaced Easter Bunny’s that were bought as “cute Easter gifts” for children. 

The unfortunate reality, the rescue is faced with every year at this time, is when these new bunny owners find out what it takes to be a responsible “bun parent” they decide to dump their rabbits outside to fend for themselves.  DOMESTIC RABBITS CANNOT SURVIVE ON THEIR OWN IN THE WILD.

The bunnies that go into FEHR’s care are vet treated, placed in temporary foster homes where they are being loved and nurtured, await a spay or neuter, are microchipped, treated for any injury or illness and await their Fur-Ever home placement. The rescues foster roster is at max capacity and they are looking for both fosters and adopters. Fosters are given supplies to house, feed and care for the foster bunny out of FEHR funds. FEHR is a non-profit that relies solely on fundraising and donations.

They really need YOU today!  

The Backmann Real Estate Team is passionate about these efforts and hopes you can help! 

Bunnies are a very misunderstood house pet and are more “human-like” than people realize.  House Rabbits are like your domestic cat or dog (we secretly think a little better). They can be litter trained, free roam in the home, kept in an xpen while you are away for the day if needed, they love their human, crave human interaction, can get along with your dogs and cats, show affection & appreciation, have amazing temperament & personalities, play, and are overall smart and well behaved house pets.
