Gumball is an energetic, 6 lb, bunny who came to us from a shelter that was full and could no longer keep him. He loves to eat and hop around, and loves to explore. He loves being out of his cage preferring to explore a room. He likes being snuggled and petted, and loves carrots as a treat. Gumball is friendly guy and only 10 months old.
On Saturday, June 1, 2013 the 4th annual Toronto Veggie Pride Parade will take place. This family-friendly parade features musicians, dancers, jugglers, party-goers and fun-seekers of all kinds. It will be starting at Yonge & Bloor and ending at Trinity Square, adjacent the Eaton Centre, where they will host guest speakers, provide an opportunity for parade participants to mingle, sample delicious veg food and be entertained.
Several animal welfare groups participate in this parade with banners, pamphlets, mascots, etc. to show their support, as well as to bring awareness to their cause. Rabbit Rescue will be represented again this year, and welcome you to join us!
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.

TAKE ACTION NOW!
To Ensure Compassion and Respect for Rabbits Everywhere (C.A.R.E)
Now is the time for you to make a difference for rabbits raised for food in Canada! Just a few minutes of your time will ensure that enough awareness of this issue will be raised. Then, there will be enough proof of public support for Rabbit Rescue to request a meeting with the Minister of Agriculture.
But first we need 300 letters! Write to the Federal and Provincial Ministers of Agriculture and your local MP to ask them to change the Humane Slaughter Act and to revise the Codes of Practice to include rabbits. Read more
Rabbit Rescue relies heavily on our wonderful foster homes. Without foster homes, Rabbit Rescue could not save animals from being euthanized. We work primarily with shelters across Ontario and get the rabbits that are at most risk, and out of time out of the shelters.
The more foster homes we have the more bunnies we can save.
We do realize that we can’t save them all, but each and every foster parent can help us save one more life and make a huge difference to even one animal.
Besides saving a rabbit’s life, fostering is also a great way to find out if a bunny is the right pet for you. You will have no obligations to keep fostering the rabbit if it is not working out for you. However we do ask that you give us as much notice as possible, so we can locate another appropriate foster home. It is always in the best interest of the animals to be moved around as little as possible, so please take your time to think about if fostering is something you can commit to.
