DeNiro's Story

Rabbit Name: DeNiro

Rabbit Rescue Name: New Moon Rabbit Rescue

What type of bunny/description: Flemish Giant, Sandy colour, Neutered Male

Age: 3 years

History: DeNiro was one of nine baby rabbits who arrived at the rescue,
orphaned by their mother and unwanted by their owners. They were estimated to
be 4 days old.

Story: DeNiro and his siblings were bottle fed and lovingly cared for by rescue
volunteers for months. Unfortunately, because of complications involved in handrearing
baby rabbits and rare genetic disorder (osteogenesis imperfecta), all but
two of his siblings passed away before they were 3 months old. Fortunately, little
DeNiro made it through with flying colours.
He was adopted by one of his caregivers early in 2009 and has been a free
roaming bunny with cat and dog friends ever since. Today, he is the happiest
rabbit you will ever meet, constantly flopping and showing off with spectacular binkies!

Once he was adopted, DeNiro was introduced to his new girlfriend – a then 2-
year-old Mini Rex/Dwarf named Gypsy. She is blind and was still grieving the
loss of her bonded friend who passed away in July 2008. She quickly took to the
young, handsome DeNiro and they have been a beautiful couple ever since!
They love to play and cuddle together and Gypsy adores grooming him for long

DeNiro is a spoiled bunny and wouldnʼt have it any other way!
Other details: DeNiro loves when his humans sing his name to him, answering
with some binkies or even just a few head shakes. He is a toy connoisseur and
likes to cause trouble in the kitchen at night when his humans have gone to bed
and canʼt call him a naughty bunny! Because he was adopted by his former
caregiver and VP of New Moon, he has the privilege of having the occasional
houseguest in the form of other bunnies just like him, who he never misses the
opportunity to show off to.

Tell a bit about your rescue/shelter:
New Moon Rabbit Rescue was formed in September 2006 with one main goal: to
provide unwanted, abandoned, neglected, or abused domestic rabbits with a
second chance at human love and appropriate care.
We are a "no-kill" organization dedicated to providing care for rescued domestic
rabbits. All rabbits remain in foster homes until such time as they are adopted to
loving, caring homes. As such, we are ALWAYS seeking new foster homes.
We work with high-volume shelters in order to give these rabbits a second
chance at adoption, as well as accepting stray rabbits and VERY
OCCASIONALLY, rabbits from owners surrendering their pet.
