San Diego Humane Society Adoptable Bunnies, Ali Peterson Photography

It was a short and sweet photo session at the San Diego Humane Society today. And by short and sweet, I’m talking about the bunnies, of course! Most people aren’t really amused by bunnies, or see why people own them as pets. I personally have never owned one, but I’ve got to say…these guys (and girls) crack me up. Maybe it’s the way they hop around or wiggle their little noses. Maybe it’s that side-eye stare they give you that looks like they’re thinking “I’m watching you, lady!” Whatever it is, they never cease to entertain me when I visit them at the shelter.

It’s no wonder the San Diego Humane Society seems to always have a good amount of bunnies up for adoption. The Oceanside campus (where the bunnies are cared for) sits about 100 yards from the San Luis Rey River (well, what used to be a river, anyways). So does my house. And when I’m out in my backyard, which faces the river, I can probably spot 10 bunnies in 15 minutes. They’re everywhere! It really gave me a new perspective on the phrase “hump like bunnies.” Haha! Anyways, there’s a lot of bun buns up here in North County San Diego, and the San Diego Humane Society is doing a terrific job of taking care of the strays and finding them loving homes.

If you’re in the market for a bunny to call your own, visit the San Diego Humane Society Oceanside campus on Airport Road. You’re sure to find a fur ball to cuddle with. Here’s just a few that I had the pleasure of photographing today and are ready for adoption!

San Diego Humane Society Adoptable Pets, Ali Peterson Photography

It may be a coincidence, but it often seems like whenever I go to photograph the San Diego Humane Society adoptable pets, they’re all napping! Even with the help of my lovely assistant, Dee, we often find it difficult to get the animals to wake up for us, let alone “model.” We must come right after their lunch is served. Haha! And although I totally understand having a serious case of “food coma,” it can be a bit of a bummer when we decide to move on to the next animal on the list without getting a decent shot, but we’d much rather let them be at peace with whatever they’re doing as opposed to forcing them to take a picture. Luckily, there’s always a handful of animals who are more than willing to take a mugshot for us…maybe they instinctively know it can help them get adopted faster. So, without further ado, here’s this week’s line-up of adoptable furry friends…
