URGENT FOSTERS NEEDED!!!

UPDATE: 65 more rabbits need to get into foster care ASAP! We have a team standing by ready to process your foster or adoption applications! Please email if you are interested in helping one of these amazing bunnies! These are some of the beautiful bunnies that are in urgent need. From our first round of bunnies that we took in (55) they all settled into foster care very quickly. They are social and affectionate, happy bunnies! They like to binky and do the bunny 500, many are jumping up on couches for snuggles and pats!

NewUrgentFosters

A few of the 103 rabbits (plus newborn babes) that need URGENT foster homes. They were seized after being raised for meat in deplorable conditions. We have LIMITED TIME to get them safely into foster care. Email haviva@rabbitrescue.ca if you can help. If you can’t foster but want to help? Please make a tax deductible donation to help with their care.

Considering adopting a bunny? Please check out all of our new arrivals, plus many others here.

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.

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.
