Hi, my name is Cait and I'm Karen's (this website's owner) daughter. I'd just like to let everyone know that the site will no longer be updated because my mom died last august 10th 2005. Its a long story and all and this isnt the place to tell it. If you'd like to talk to me about anything, bunnies or not, feel free to email me at sailorwigglytuff@hotmail.com. Thank you for your interest in Spring Valley Rabbitry.


Update(10-5-06): Our rabbitry is down to about 14 rabbits. We no longer breed them, and have no baby bunnies. Because my mom was sick, she really couldn't do more than feed and water them. Consequently, the rabbits were not maintained properly, resulting in long toenails and broken toes. The rest of our stock is also old. (4-5+ years)
Because of this many rabbits are no longer show worthy and not for sale. Please don't e-mail regarding buying any rabbits or updating this site. Thank you.
