Big, white, reserved, Honalee lived more than eleven years in sanctuary. She ate enthusiastically and blissed out on the vibes of any music she heard. Normally content to stay near her litterbox, Honalulu showed a surprising drive to explore when we stopped on overnight trips. Her days passed in peace but her full personality didn’t show until her final year when she lost the use of her hind legs and could no longer control her bladder. She needed increasing hands-on care and the more care we gave, the more she responded to touch. In her final weeks, lying always flat on one side, she would press her forehead up for a pet in a way that said “this is the closest bond I’ve ever had.” Somewhere over the rainbow, we hope she is hearing music.

Please join us in welcoming Honalee as a Sanctuary Rabbit. We’ve enjoyed her company for almost five years and have seen her develop into a warm, sensitive friend. But she is white with red eyes, and can be very shy. Because of that combination, she is passed over when homes become available. She has not found a forever home, and so we are giving her ours. Think of her when you see a white rabbit with red eyes looking for love. That plain cover opens up to a wonderful story inside. Herta & David
Here is her original write-up —
Have you ever wanted back into a time of innocence, when rabbits could be big and white and magic? This young lovely, born in spring ’09, sibling to Napoleon, will take you there. Open your door to her, and come home every day to the land of Honalee. See more of Honalee below.
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.
