Midwest BunFest will soon be here – and you can bring your house rabbit with you! Yes, house rabbits are welcome at this, the only event of its kind in the Midwest. Your bunny can have her very own spa day of grooming and pampering, and then relax in the bunny daycare area while you shop or attend educational presentations. If you have a bunny that is sociable, does not mind travel, enjoys attention from people, and will be generally comfortable with a potentially noisy and crowded setting, by all means, bring him along!
Your bunny can have his own spa day, with individual services ranging from $5 to $8 dollars, or just $20 for a full spa package including nail clipping, gland cleaning, hair removal/brushing and a bunny massage. After that, you will want to visit the Glamour Shots photo booth – a mere $10 for a professional photo shoot of your best buddy and a 4×6 picture from the shoot, and the ability to browse all the pictures and buy more online!
The Bunny Lounge is a place for visitors and their bunnies to take a break and relax! You can have a snack from the snack bar and give your bunny the chance to get out of his/her carrier or stroller and stretch out a bit. There will be tables and chairs for the people and x-pens with litter boxes, water, and hay for the bunnies.
Please keep in mind that this event may be crowded, noisy, and stressful for some bunnies. Only you know your bunny well enough to make the decision whether your bunny will enjoy Midwest BunFest or if it will be a bit much for your bunny to handle. If it is best for your bunny to stay home, you can pick up plenty of fun and tasty bunny stuff to make it up to them!
Ohio House Rabbit Rescue and the Midwest BunFest team wants everyone to enjoy themselves and be safe at the event, and to that end, there are some rules and guidelines to follow when bringing your bunny. Upon entering the Midwest BunFest event with your bunny, each bunny guardian (must be an adult over the age 18) will be asked to register their bunny and sign a waiver indicating that they have read, understood, and agree to comply with the 2012 Midwest BunFest rules.
Complete guidelines for bringing your rabbit to the Midwest BunFest can be found here.
