I have some sad news to share. Buckeye’s sanctuary bunny, Humphrey, passed away on Monday, April 23, 2018. We knew Humphrey had cancer, but it did not slow him down. Despite his different aliments, Humphrey was always his normal upbeat, inquisitive, and rascally rabbit self. Once his appetite was gone and his energy level was not the same, we knew it was time. Humphrey lived much longer than any of us expected. He was loved and cherished and will be terribly missed. His foster mom, dad, and doggie sister loved him so much. Binky free, Humphrey! — Stephanie Lodge
Handsome Humphrey was originally taken in by Buckeye House Rabbit Society in August 2016. Unfortunately, as many people know, certain colors and breeds of animals are not as popular as others, so our handsome boy remained a foster. It wasn’t until April 2017 that we noticed a lump on Humphrey’s side. Sadly, the biopsy results came back abnormal and the vet suspected cancer. It was then that we knew he would become a sanctuary bunny.
Since then, BHRS member Stephanie Ash has cared for Humphrey as her own. Despite not knowing how long he will be with us, we make every day the best day we can for him with lots of treats, gentle pets, room to play, and fun enrichment activities. He is happy, and even though his lump continues to grow, he still doesn’t realize anything is wrong with him.
Our sanctuary rabbits require special love and care. Their home is with us at the sanctuary and they are not available for adoption. You can directly support these rabbits by sponsoring them.
Here is his previous Needs-a-Home write-up —
Humphrey is a very busy boy. He is only about one year old and loves free time away from his pen. He doesn’t care for being held (because that takes time away from his freedom to explore, you see). He does love attention and is very people-friendly. Humphrey loves shredding up newspaper inside of his cardboard box. Humphrey is a bit of a goof ball and is sure to make you laugh.
