Formerly Space Coast Animal Rights, Bunn-411echnically got its start in 2014 but did not become incorporated until 2019. We are an advocacy organization that strives to bring awareness to the plight of all rabbits, both wild and domesticated, and to make strides to protect them by inspiring the public through outreach and education. We promote an end to rabbit cruelty by connecting with people and helping them to see the beauty in every rabbit's personality. Though we are 100% in support of rescue, as an advocacy organization, we limit our direct rescue efforts to 5% of our operational activities. This is because we do not want to miss an opportunity to teach due to providing care for others. Our philosophy is that advocacy efforts will be the key to ending the abandonment of rabbits, among other issues.
Bunn-411, Inc. is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; EIN #47-4931043.

MEET OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Alycia is a long-time rabbit advocate and a House Rabbit Society Educator. She first fell in love with rabbits when she adopted her first rabbit, Floppers. At the time, she did not know about rescue so she found herself at a store to adopt Floppers. Soon after, Floppers became ill from poor diet recommended from the pet store. After a vet gave the right care information to Alycia, she dug into research on rabbits. It became an obsession. Soon after, she started volunteering for Gainesville Rabbit Rescue and stalking people in the rabbit section at pet stores to sway them toward rescue and the proper care equipment.
In 2014, Alycia founded Space Coast Animal Rights, an advocacy organization in Melbourne, FL, USA. The organization's most successful campaign was #NotJust4Easter, a campaign we now hold, that works to end the sale of rabbits, chicks, and ducklings at Easter due to the cruelty and neglect that comes with live animal gifting. The campaign is endorsed by Lush Cosmetics and PETA and has been publicized in USA Today. Alycia has spoken about the importance of this campaign at the Animal Rights National Conference in Los Angeles, CA, USA and is scheduled to speak at Southeast BunFest in May.
When Alycia is away from the organization, she enjoys working on her graduate degree, experiencing nature, and spending time with her husband and three rabbits, Scotch, Skye, and Kermit.
