See you there!

501c3. It’s more than just a number. Er, more than just a number with a letter in it.

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Last week SaveABunny was approved for 501c3 nonprofit status.  What this means for you is that any donation you make is now tax-deductible! Just in case you don’t know (I didn’t!), here’s how it works:

You donate something. Let’s say, for example, $30 to help sponsor Dulciana, an adorable special-needs bunny with a head-tilt:

Of course we would all be perfectly content just knowing that our $30 is going to a good cause. We don’t need anything back! It’s called giving for a reason! But thanks to those four little numbers (and one letter!), the kindness of our hearts has a little extra incentive.

Come tax season, you can subtract that $30 from your taxable income. Let’s say you made $29,687 last year – thanks to your donation, the government will now only tax you on $29,657. Of course $30 won’t exactly save you bridge fare, but a large enough donation can drop you right into a lower tax bracket. And if you can donate a few times a year, it really adds up.

So not only do you save money, but Dulciana gets the funds she needs to live a better life!

And it’s not just cash that’s tax-deductible. Gifts are, too! Any item from our Wishlist is a great place to start.

We’re all super excited about our new status here at SaveABunny, and we hope you are too! Come by and celebrate with us at the SaveABunny Bake Sale next month:

Food, wine and bunnies: the 1st ever SaveABunny Get-Together

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Last Monday was the first-ever SaveABunny get-together, hosted, organized, and 100% possible  thanks to Marcy. There was wine, vegetarian food (omg that lentil loaf should be called lentil heaven. I was amazed,) and of course all the SaveABunny bunnies were there. We hung out, talked about SaveABunny goings-on, ate some strawberries, learned about grooming bunnies, ate some carrot cake, talked some more, and squeezed in another helping of lentil loaf.

Bunnies got attention, wine got imbibed, and in short a great time was had by almost everyone. Here’s some pictures from the event:

Marcy even squeezed in some cuddling between handing out glasses of wine and collecting addresses:

And of course, the bunnies enjoyed some yummy food, too:

It was a fun night! We learned a ton and met some new people. Hope you can make it next time!

Meet some awesome people and some awesome rabbits this June 9 at SaveABunny

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Announcing a new meeting for Rabbit Lovers and Helpers!

What: Welcome Meeting At SaveABunny –RSVP Required

When: Monday, June 9, 7:00 PM

Where: SaveABunny (located in a residential area in
Marin County) on Monday June 9th at 7PM.

Who should come: People who love animals and want to make a difference in a fun way.

This is the first meeting and general get together at SaveABunny rabbit rescue. Meet and groom cute and loving rescued rabbits, chat with fellow animal lovers, and enjoy a nice evening.
There’s only one requirement for guests: you have to be genuinely interested in helping rabbits! Don’t come if you’re looking for some deep-fried lagomorph or a lengthy argument about the cosmetics industry. I don’t know why you would be reading this blog if those were your plans… but just in case. Don’t come.
Why: Our goal is to bring together a fun, compassionate and reliable group of people who want to share their love of companion rabbits.
Get to know the fun, creative people that make up the SaveABunny community, and hang out with the bunnies – they need socializing too!

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet an incredible variety of
rabbits, learn more about proper rabbit care and help set the activities of this new
meet-up group on behalf of SaveABunny and rabbit rescue
efforts across the entire SF Bay area.

We will serve vegetarian snacks, wine and soda. If you’d like to bring a
vegetarian dish to share, please let us know in your RSVP.

Any suggestions for our first rabbit meet-up? Let us
know!

Have fun while you help animals. See you soon!

SaveABunny at the PFAC conference

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Thanks to a very generous donation from one of the directors of PFAC (Professional Fiduciary Group of California), we will have a booth at their conference this year to educate people about rabbits as indoor companions for home bound people.

(If you’re curious as to what exactly a fiduciary is, we looked it up the PFAC website: “A fiduciary is a person who assumes responsibility for a position of trust. …Fiduciaries serve by court appointment as guardians, conservators and personal representatives of estates. They also serve by agreement as trustees, representative payees or as agents under powers of attorney.”)

Each person that a PFAC fiduciary represents has a live-in caregiver. At SaveABunny, we think rabbits as companion animals would both benefit the quality of life for people in care programs, as well as provide a foster and volunteer resource for our rabbits. It’s an interesting new direction for us that we’re excited to be exploring.

The conference is being held at the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame. Exhibit hours are Wednesday, May 7th 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., Thursday & Friday May 8th and 9th 8:00 to 4:00 p.m. Learn more at the PFAC website.

Part of the inspiration for the donation was the work we do with one of our bunnies, Scooter, for special-needs groups like Blind Babies. Learn more about Scooter and the important work he does on the SaveABunny website.
