URGENT FOSTER NEEDED FOR JACKSTER

Jacks was originally found outside in December 2013 and brought to rabbit rescue where we had him neutered. He was relatively young at the time. He quickly took to litter training and having people around. He has never bitten anyone. He refuses to be picked up, but will hop into a carrier with minimal fuss. He will chew loose cords if left within reach, but with a little bunny proofing, he is a great free-run rabbit. He is good with his litter box and appreciates when it is kept clean. He is used to wood pellet litter.

He is a very good eater, eats 1/4 cup of Timothy pellets for breakfast, Timothy hay throughout the day, and any kind of vegetables and leafy greens that come his way. He drinks out of a bowl. He eagerly accepts any kind of bunny treats, such as a small piece of fruit, or Timothy cubes – a Timothy cube hidden in a toilet paper roll is a fun toy that keeps him busy.

He is affectionate on his own terms. He is shy around new people, and if he is not in the mood to cuddle, he won’t come to you, but he may show his happiness by binkying around you. If he is upset or startled he might thump his feet like Thumper. If you can help him by being a foster home for him, please email: Haviva@rabbitrescue.ca

We are appalled to learn that Loblaw Companies Ltd including Fortinos, Loblaws and Zehrs now carry rabbit meat. Many of the individual store managers have expressed that they do NOT wish to sell it in their store, but are forced to by head office.

The petition in one day has gained 1600 supporters! Please help us stop this. SIGN HERE.

In Canada, there are NO Codes of Practice for Rabbits under the Humane Slaughter Act. There are no laws that require livestock rabbits to receive minimum amounts of food, water, space, sensible handling, or effective medical care.  We will not support stores that are responsible for the suffering and death of animals that many people consider pets.

They are not yours to hang by a leg, electrocute, stab, eviscerate and decapitate.

Fiver Trust Fund

A very special bunny named Fiver came into our lives in September 2003. In the wonderful year that he spent with us, he taught us about life and love and touched many hearts.

Always a happy bunny, he enjoyed munching on dill and his ‘puff’ treats, binking around, and cuddling. Those who knew him fell in love with his outgoing personality, helicopter ears and adorable ‘quacking’. A bunny who beat the odds, his memory continues to live on in the Fiver Trust Fund. Donations made in his honor are used for special needs rabbits requiring long term medical care. With this Fund, bunnies like Fiver will get a second chance at life.

The Fiver Trust Fund is for our rescues who need more than just a forever home. By contributing to this long term care fund, you will help improve and prolong the the life of a special rabbit.

Make a donation to the Fiver Trust Fund and help save the life of a rabbit in need of life saving medical care.
