We have been building our reputation as a trusted rabbitry in Pembroke, MA since we bred our first rabbits back in 2022. We take our responsibilities very seriously and strive to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all our rabbits. That’s why the happiest days for us are when one of our animals is adopted by a loving and welcoming family.
We are an ARBA registered rabbitry.
A little bit about us: I started this rabbitry in honor of my friend Tina who sadly passed away last year. She was the most wonderful person in the world. We shared our love of animals and we are both dog groomers. We worked together in a corporate grooming salon for many years. We became close friends fast. Eventually she opened her own shop with her wonderful co-owner we also worked with, and still remained very close friends. Here is our story...
Tina had been telling me for awhile that she wanted a bunny. She came across a breeder who had a recent litter of bunnies. One bunny inparticular caught Tina’s eye. The runt of the litter that got injured pretty severely by accident by his own mother. The breeder wasn’t sure he’d make it and didn’t have high hopes. Tina told her that if by slim chance he did make it, she wanted him. Lo and behold and against all odds, he made it. He healed and grew with the rest of his brothers and sisters.
Tina was so excited to bring him home. She would count down the days until she did. I can still hear the excitement in her voice to this day. She decided to name him “Nugget”. When I tell you that she loved that bunny, there aren’t even words to describe. She’d even tear up a little bit from time to time talking about him and just say “I just love him SO much!”. I’ve never seen someone so in love. Every Christmas I’d get post cards of Nugget and they always made me smile. She’d dress him up in the cutest little costumes. I was always impressed that he even let her do it. It was clear they had a very special bond. “He’s such a little nugget!” She’d always says.
Tragically, Tina passed away from Covid last year. She left behind her beautiful daughter Ari, and Nugget. Nugget was now homeless and I’m sure grieving just like the rest of us. So I took him into my home. Having a zoo of my own (2 dogs, 3 cats, my own bunny, a hamster, & two toddlers) taking on another pets wasn’t really in my plan. But it killed me thinking of him in a shelter. Shortly after taking him in, it didn’t take me long to realize why Tina had loved him so much. He was gentle, calm, and all around just had great energy. He made me laugh when I didn’t even want to smile. He got me through some of the darkest days of my life. We all took Tina’s passing very hard as she was such a beautiful soul and touched everyone’s life she came in contact with. She was my person I went to for everything. I miss her more than words can describe. But I am so lucky to have Nugget and I’d like to think that he’s happy to have me as well.
