Shelly's Shelter rescues bunnies and occasionally small dogs. We take in a lot of bunnies that have health problems, fix them up and find loving homes. We rescue bunnies from area shelters, fix them and find them homes.

Our newest project. This bunny boy was relinquished to the Carlsbad shelter who asked if we had room. He is grossly overweight with poopy butt and hair loss. Here he is before and after his bath. I think we will name him Eeyore.
Sometimes you don't even have to leave home to rescue! Just found this little 9 week old boy crying behind my garage door. Apparently someone dropped him over the back fence. Very friendly!😊
UPDATE: Thank you so very much for your generous donations. Our goal has been exceeded and 10 little bunny lives have been changed forever because of you. We were even able to get two of the older baby boys neutered today. They are one step closer to finding their forever loving homes. We cannot thank you enough. You are really the true hero. Without your help, none of this would be possible!!! Shelly's Shelter Rescue needs a little help with the 19 bunnies they took in yesterday. 10 of them are a mom and babies. They need to see a vet and eventually be spayed/neutered. Please help if you can.
Please help us get our new little babies and their mommy their spay/neuter surgeries when the time comes.
Just a few of the rescued bunnies getting settled in at Shelly's Shelter Rescue
Today was a very big day. Between the Bunny Bunch Rabbit Rescue and Shelly's Shelter Rescue, 35 rabbits were rescued from two different shelters!! I was so surprised when I peeked into a bunny's cage and saw 10 newborns!!!!!
Newcomers to Shelly's Shelter Rescue
Ned update: Look who has a new best friend! Life is looking good for little Ned. He and Vivica are a perfect match.
Look at these proud ears standing once again!
Ned enjoying the sunshine and grass snack.
Ned update: Ned has started to gain weight so hopefully he has turned the corner in the right direction. He is still getting fluids but eating a ton. I will bring him home today and will keep you posted!
Cotton Candy anyone? This sweet probably angora mix girl was brought to me today. She is 3 months old and the hair was just too much for the new owners to keep up with. Candy us badly matted and will have to be shaved. She is very friendly. Please let anyone who is looking for a long haired bunny know she needs a home. She will be spayed too.
How's Enzo doing?
Ned update: his ears are healing well but he has had a setback. He started losing weight and was very lethargic so back to the hospital he went. We are waiting for his lab results.
Ned update:The mite crusts have all fallen away and his ears are free! The skin looks healthy and I can see Ned moving his ears. They must feel so light!
Ned is feeling better as the mite crusts start to fall off. It's amazing what a little ivermectin can do!
Poor Ned has one of the worst cases of ear mites we have seen. He is a mini Rex and his ears are so thick and heavy from the horrible infestation that he looks like a lop! Will keep you posted as he gets better.
Little Marty's eye is healed! Thank you Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital !
Little Marty the Guinea pig was surrendered to Shelly's Shelter with a very bad corneal ulcer. Dr. Jenkins at Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital sutured the eyelid and we will see what the eye looks like in a few weeks.
HaPpY EaStEr from Shelly's Shelter!
This bunny is getting his maloccluded teeth removed by Dr. Jenkins at the Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital, Before and after! The teeth are much longer than you think! Now the bunny can finally eat.
Shelly's Shelter Rescue has offered to take in this bunny along with the mommy and babies from Baldwin Park! Thank you so much Shelly!!! This little girl was found by a good samaritan. Witnesses stated the neighborhood cats and dogs have been chasing her for several weeks. She is safe right now. But, the kind people who caught her cannot keep her. They will have to take her to the horrible and very high kill shelter in Baldwin Park if a home/rescue is not found asap. Please message us if you can take this little girl in.
Look who's coming to the rescue!!! This adorable little family was running out of time and in danger of losing their lives. So, we stepped in and saved their lives. Aren't they adorable!!!! All will be available for adoption soon :-)
