Aphrodisiac Components

  • Carrots Another good reason to eat carrots--believed to be a stimulant to the male. The phallus shaped carrot has been associated with stimulation since ancient times and was used by early Middle Eastern royalty to aid seduction. High vitamins and beta-carotene.
  • Fennel In the 1930's fennel was found to be a source of natural plant estrogens. Use of fennel as an aphrodisiac dates back to the Egyptian times where it was used as "libido enhancement".
  • Mustard Believed to stimulate the sexual glands and increase desire.

January 2007 to May 2007

“Girl Scouts have RABBITUDE!” said Kayla Dias of Troop 98 on March 3, from behind her Troop’s Cookie Booth. Troop 98 is an example of many Girl Scout troops in Santa Clara County who are helping animals by donating a portion of proceeds from their Cookie sale money to SaveABunny. To date, donations have exceeded $500 with more expected. Recently, Girl Scout donations played an integral role in SaveABunny’s emergency rescue of “Brownie” a gentle, lop-eared, tan girl rabbit from the San Jose city shelter, who needed surgery to avoid euthanasia.

Since January of 2007, Girl Scouts of Santa Clara County have been participating in the “Join The Fun – Save A Bun” program, which partners the Girl Scouts (whose mascot for their Cookie Sale is a rabbit!) with SaveABunny to support rabbit rescue efforts. Troops also perform community service projects, such as collecting towels and small blankets and making hay treats for the rabbits in the South Bay shelters. Most importantly, they are hearing the message, “adopt a rabbit, don’t buy one from a pet store.” This is especially import at Easter time.

Girl Scouts can earn a Fun Activity Patch by starting with recommended activity guidelines and educational materials from SaveABunny. The “Join The Fun – Save A Bun” partnership with SaveABunny helps to raise much needed funds for animal rescue work, as well as builds on the Girl Scout philosophy of youth, entrepreneurial spirit and responsibility. The girls can express compassion and empathy, as well as learn about proper rabbit care, As Girl Scout Nicole Lima said “We learned that rabbits don’t like to be picked up and they eat lots of timothy hay!”

Troop 98 visited Sam’s Downtown Feed Store (feed only-no animals) and leaned what rabbits eat and what is the best hay for them. This troop is also making stuffed bunnies and hopes to donate them to a local hospital for their pediatric ward.

And a huge thank you to all of the Girl Scouts who made hay treat bags for the rabbits at the South Bay shelters during the Girl Scouts of Santa Clara County’s Cookie Kick-off in January. The girls made over 250 individual bags and signed giant cards for the rabbits. These bags were divided between The Humane Society of Silicon Valley, San Jose Animal Care Center, Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority and Palo Alto Animal Services and Placement Center.

These rabbits from San Jose Animal Care Center are enjoying their tasty treats!

Original Announcement

SaveABunny is pleased to update you on the first stage of an exciting partnership between SaveABunny and Girl Scouts of Santa Clara County with the launch of the “Join the Fun - Save A Bun” program.

Join the Fun - Save A Bun is in conjunction with the 2007 Girl Scout Cookie Sale, which this year has a rabbit as its mascot. Troops can choose to sponsor rabbits at SaveABunny or a shelter and donate a portion of cookie sales to benefit rabbit rescue.

The 2007 Girl Scout "Cookie Kick-Off" was held January 12th, 2007 at HP Pavilion in San Jose,with a record attendance of 2,391 Girl Scouts, friends and family---and of course volunteers and ambassador rabbits from SaveABunny! Delicious cookies and adorable rabbits...who could ask for more!

Girl Scouts and their families mingled with a wide variety of rescued rabbits and learned about why rabbits needs rescue, with an emphasis on rabbits in need at several South Bay shelters, like San Jose Animal Services,Palo Alto Animal Services and Humane Society of Santa Clara.

The SaveABunny area was easily one of the most popular destination at the event with literally hundreds of people lined up to learn more about companion rabbits.

Participants could browse the education and presentation section to pick up handouts, view photos of rabbits needing rescue at South Bay shelters,test their knowledge about rabbit care information and learn more about rabbit rescue efforts in the Bay area.

At our five "meet and greet" stations Girl Scouts could interact with gentle and patient ambassador rabbits: Marcel (ADOPT ME!), Edgar (ADOPT ME!), Sherwood, Lennon-Pierre (adopted) and Scooter (SaveABunny sanctuary rabbit)and learn firsthand about the care and handling of these special animals and talk with knowledgeable SaveABunny volunteers.

Girl Scouts designed and signed their own special gift bag for rabbits waiting at shelters,and an astonishing 220 total treat bags were lovingly made and distributed to the rabbits at the Humane Society of Silicon Valley, Palo Alto Animal Services and San Jose Animal Services making a lonely animal's life just a little brighter. Many thanks to the Funny Bunny Toy Company in Alameda for donating rabbit toys to include in the gift bags!

The Join the Fun - Save A Bun program extends throughout the first quarter of 2007 with the opportunity for cookie sales to help raise awareness and much needed funds for SaveABunny's rabbit rescue efforts.
Girl Scouts of Santa Clara County serves over 15,000 girls and 8,000 adults in the South Bay.

The potential impact from this program is far-reaching, since South Bay shelters traditionally experience major overcrowding, resulting in high euthanasia rates, due to the large influx of unwanted pet rabbits bought at pet stores or breeders and later surrendered to shelters when the novelty wore off.

Through a variety of community service activities and a Fun Patch Program, the Join the Fun - Save A Bun program will enlighten and educate thousands of Girl Scouts and their families about the importance of making informed and compassionate choices, such as spaying and neutering companion rabbits, as well as adopting through shelters or rescue groups, rather than buying from pet stores of breeders. Families will learn about rabbit rescue efforts, how to care for companion rabbits and make a direct difference in the lives of rabbits waiting for homes at local animal shelters and rescues. Details on the program are on the Girl Scout website at

Humane education is an integral part of the mission of SaveABunny. We believe that grassroots education and active involvement with the youth in our community is a key component to affect how society views rabbits and other companion animals. What children learn now about respect, care and social consciousness around animals, will carry with them into adulthood when the torch of being a role model is past to them. We are looking forward to this program raising awareness about companion rabbits and their needs and making a lasting impact in the community.
