Dear friends, we hope you're enjoying these long, lazy days of summer as much as we are. We wanted to let you know about some upcoming events and some great new products for you and your bunny.

Summer Clearance!

It's time for our third annual Summer Sale! Beginning Sunday, August 8th, every order will receive a 10% discount on the items ordered. The sale goes through Tuesday, August 31st. There is a little fine print: the discount may not be combined with any other discounts and does not apply to shipping charges. Be sure to check our sale page for new price reductions too!

Bunny Bytes is hitting the road! We're very excited to be participating this year in the Seattle Pet Expo on Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22nd in the Exhibition Hall at Seattle Center. Come meet some of the Bunny Bytes crew and shop for great toys,treats and supplies for your rabbit as well as great gift items. Hours each day will be from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. We'll be bringing as much of our selection as we possibly can but due to space we will not be bringing bulky items like hay and litter. We will be closed Friday, August 20th in preparation for the show. Hope to see you there!


The Seattle Pet Expo will offer educational seminars, a variety of demonstrations, activities, great shopping with over 100 exhibitors, and fun for all pet owners and animal enthusiasts. Some of the speakers include:

Are you bunny smitten? Do you have the rabbit habit? Do you lavishly love lops? Are you hare brained? If you answered yes to any or all of the above then come to the Pet Expo and meet the great volunteers of Evergreen Rabbit Rescue, a local independent rabbit rescue group. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, or need rabbit care or behavior advice they'll be there to answer your questions, quick like a bunny. Evergreen Rabbit Rescue is an all volunteer, non profit organization that supports local shelters by taking the rabbits they don't have space for, providing foster homes and then finding forever homes for them. They also educate the public about rabbit care and behavior through classes and outreach events. For more information on Evergreen Rabbit Rescue please see our Shelter Spotlight

Enjoy the rest of your summer and fall and we hope you enjoy our new offerings,

Jenny, Tom and Debbie

We've had an unusually hot and dry summer here in Seattle and it's inspired me to pass on my favorite ways to keep our furry friends cool in Beating the Heat.

Wondering Down Under

We recently received an email from a fellow bunny fan in Australia that I wanted to pass on to all of you. Here's a chance for your rabbit to be a celeb!

I am a writer in Melbourne, Australia, currently writing a book about rabbits. I am collecting stories from around the world from people who share their life with a bunny. I would LOVE to hear from you. I would love to include your bunny tales and photos in my book, which is purely a celebration of rabbits. What you include is up to you. You may like to purely discuss your rabbit or you may like to talk about the impact your bunny has had on your life. For example, my bunny came into my life following a long episode of illness and I would like to celebrate the impact she made in my recovery. Please email me, Jill Halliday, at Thank you!

Photo and Tip Contest

It's time for another contest! We're looking for your holiday related pictures and holiday safety tips for our upcoming holiday bulletin. The two winners will each receive a $25.00 Bunny Bytes gift certificate. If we use your photo or tip you will receive a free holiday toy! Please email submissions to or mail to Bunny Bytes, PO Box 69733, Seattle WA 98168. Be sure to include your mailing address so we can send you your prize.

What's coming from Bunny Bytes:

Look for the return of our fun fall toys in mid September. Some old favorites will reappear along with some new additions. The elves are working full time on great holiday toys and treats and of course, a new stocking!

Holiday closures:

Bunny Bytes will be closed Monday, September 6th in observance of Labor Day and Thursday, November 25th and Friday, November 26th for the Thanksgiving holiday.
