i really really like both of them a lot! I like how you state your stance on breeding clearly on the front page of your rescue page.

And i really really wish i lived closer because i would have probably adopted Bear myself!

I think it is neat that you are breeding, and rescuing. Doing your part on both sides of the fence,that is a great thing. :)

Emily & Amanda - I think y'all have changed your website since I saw it months and months ago. I like the new design - it looks far more professional and eye-appealing.

A question about your cages - you have some wooden ones with the doors being wire mesh or something - did you make those yourself? Buy them somewhere? I love those cages.

Good job!

Karlie,

I like the websites. It's neat you do a shelter program. How many holes do you devote to that? Do you have local agencies that know you're running a shelter...or is it more of a "word of mouth" that brings in your shelter buns?

My site is always a work in progress, but I did add more to it on the rainy Sunday we just had: http://www.MurphysLionsandLops.com

Thanks Peg!! Yah I have switched web providers...wasn't getting what I wanted with freewebs, haha.

The hutches with mesh doors we did build ourselves (well our dad did, we just designed them). We've had those 2 hutches since the beginning and the floors are actually starting to rot away, and two have holes in them, so we're working on getting some new cages asap. Our plan for those hutches is to refloor them and then move them outside.

It didn't really cost us much to build those cages. We had all the plywood/siding because where my dad used to live, hisoldboss would dump scrap wood from house building. We just had to buy the mesh, whatever nails/screws we needed and whatever pieces of wood we didn't have. I think the total cost for the Double (one on top/one on bottom) was less than $35. The other one was about the same. It would be more if you didn't have the scrap wood, though. But much cheaper and larger than a petstore bought hutch ;)

Murph72, at the moment I am working on gettin new cages for that (10) and a small part of the barn made into a room for the shelter buns. But for now I just use whatever my show rabbits don't use. Its really just a word of mouth sort of shelter, I put flyers up on bullitien boards and ask to set out bizz cards on cashier desks. I am soon going to be calling all the animal shelters within 2hours of me to tell them that if they don't take rabbits or need help taking all the rabbits in to dirrect everyone over to me.

I like your website alot.

Thanks,

Thanks Karlie. I'm just now learning how to do the site on my own. My hubby is really the computer-super-savvy one in the family. I married a hacker. :) We're hosting through Go Daddy...I'm wondering if it was the commercials that really turned him on to thathost. I told him Danika didn't come with the package we were purchasing. LOL The freewebs are easier to do, but he wanted something "professional looking." It's nice, but it has me looking at code that I'm just now figuring out.

I think it's cool what you're doing with the rescue buns. I don't know if there's much need for that in my area. We're pretty rural and people seem to easily be able to find homes for their bunnies. Luckily there aren't many people around with large reptiles either, so worrying about bunnies being taken as food isn't common in my general area. Now once you get outside of my area (over the mountain, to be exact) the clientele is a bit more shady. I personally screen those people harder than I do locals. It's good you charge for your buns...it's much safer to know they're going to a real home and not to be dinner.

Thanks,

i did mine through yahoo...it charged a fee, but it had layouts already, so no code mumbo jumbo...im not married to a computer guy, and im not one myself so it was a good choice for me...and for a small fee.
