URGENT FOSTERS

LukeYuki

Luke Skyhopper and Yuki are a young bonded pair of New Zealand rabbits who were both part of the 103 rescue – saved from become dinner after living in horrid conditions.  Rabbit Rescue has spayed and neutered both.  They were adopted separately and bonded.  Their owner is now moving and not able to keep them, and we have only a few short weeks to move them.  Yuki is the sister to the  “famous” Benjamin Bunny”. Luke is a loveable trouble maker who is a total sweetheart. He loves cuddles and playing with any toy given to him.  He loves paper and cardboard boxes and is like a puppy in the morning when it comes to his food.  They both love routine and look forward to knowing what is next.  Luke and Yuki live almost completely free range, but do have their own area that they can retreat too.  Yuki is more independent than Luke, she spooks easy but eventually opens up her heart.  She is a beautiful little girl who only wants love from everyone around her and only wants happiness.  She, like Luke loves to chew boxes and the two of them can spend hours chewing them down.  They eat great and have never had any problems.  These two are wonderful to watch as they sleep side by side.

We are seeking a VERY URGENT FOSTER (or adoptive) home for them!

rr_volunteerbannerLike all registered charities, Rabbit Rescue Inc also could not survive without the amazing support and dedication of our volunteers.

Right now we are looking for responsible adults who are willing to donate a bit of their time each month to help Rabbit Rescue. Positions we desperately need:

  • Fundraising – We need multiple personnel to independently generate ideas and work with the Director to execute fundraising initiatives.
  • Advocates – Also multiple personnel to go to your local pet shop to raise awareness about Rabbit Rescue Inc as well as ask for supply donations. Guide packages with signage and tools will be provided.

Also looking for many volunteers for our yearly Bunfest in Toronto:

  • 2017 Vendor seeking, setup and management (multiple people would be ideal)
  • Organize and recruit baked goods and silent auction items
  • Adoption centre
  • 2017 Photographer for bunny photo booth
  • Helping hands – go where is needed to help vendors set up and run their tables if necessary

All positions require working with the Director of Rabbit Rescue or a member of the current volunteer team. If you think you would be an ideal candidate for any of the positions listed above please contact us for more information.

A great way to try a new challenge and help lots of bunnies in the process.

Please Sign Our Petition

Stop stocking rabbit meat.

Help us get to 5,000 signatures!!!!

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.
