With Bill Velasquez, New Mexico House Rabbit Society
Since 2007, Bill Velasquez has been involved with rabbit rescue, and in January 2010 he helped to launch the New Mexico House Rabbit Society. Recently, Bill began producing podcasts as an alternate way to educate people about house rabbits and their care. (Check out Bill’s podcasts at

“Like most people, I live a mobile life and I exclusively listen to podcasts in the car rather than the radio. It seemed only natural to bring the pages of www.rabbit.org to a mobile platform so people can learn about buns while they drive. This is how I get my news and hobby information on a daily basis.
As anyone involved in rabbit rescue knows there is a tremendous need for continuing education – for volunteers, foster homes, and adopters. Not everyone enjoys reading books, so podcasts can fill an important educational niche.”
Bill promotes his podcasts through Facebook and encourages new volunteers and adopters to tune for basic information.
Bill also plans to include interviews and information from other HRS chapters: “Send me your MP3 files and I will post them!” He would also like to include video podcasts to show, “buns and bun tune-ups.”
To see video presentations on topics such as disabled rabbit care, alternative medical therapies, dental care, bunny gardening, and game-playing with bunnies, visit San Diego HRS’s Vimeo page. The page is regularly updated with presentations from our Speaker Series.
