RR to Rescue Bunnies from Las Vegas, We Need Your Help!

12 bun collage

JANUARY 31st 2018!  That is that date, that bunnies from the dumping grounds in Las Vegas will be arriving into Rabbit Rescue’s care.

RR became aware of several large dumping grounds in Las Vegas, which contain upwards of 500 rabbits.  There are a number of groups trying to assist these rabbits, and we have been working closely with two of them; “Bunnies Matter in Vegas Too” and “Rusty and his Furr friends”. They are working tirelessly to help these abandoned rabbits, and need our help.

We have arranged transport from Las Vegas to Ontario, Canada, to arrive here on Jan. 31st. We will take AS MANY BUNNIES as we have foster homes for (up to 25 which is the safe number for transporting them all safely).  The more bunnies we can help, the more space that gives those two great groups in Vegas to take more out of the dump sites.  Some they are helping with are seriously injured and need to be removed from the sites.  So the more we can take in here, the more they can help there that urgently need attention. The ones coming to us are healthy enough for the long journey and will each have a health certificate for the trip.

 HOW YOU CAN HELP

  1. Sponsor a bunny To help with any medical care of these rabbits, you help sponsor a bunny.  We don’t know what they may need upon arrival but want to be prepared.
  2. Foster a bunny (Download Foster Application). We will provide all supplies (xpen etc) for these rabbits. Must be w/in our local fostering area (London to Belleville, ON)
  3. Contribute to the transport costs.  A GoFund me page has been created to help specifically with this transport. (https://www.gofundme.com/bunnies-on-board) Please note, the funds received are going directly to the amazing couple who is transporting them. They do this as volunteer work and receive no compensation for their time and efforts.
  4. Spread the word!  Please share our updates on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to help us save as many lives as possible.

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.

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.
