URGENT FOSTER: Cannelle

CannelleProfile

URGENT! Cannelle was left behind when her owners got evicted and the public security brought her in after keeping her at the station for a few days. She’s been returned by a few of adopters/fosters because she’s territorial or due to allergies and that has made her more stressed. She no longer lunges or attacks when you put your hand in her cage but is visibly stressed. Also stressed outside of the cage unfortunately. She needs a nice quiet place where she can relax and get more comfortable around people! We have seen it many times where a bunny is very territorial in a shelter and does amazing in the right environment! She also needs to be spayed, and that will help immensely with any territorial behaviour. She will be spayed upon coming into our care. If you can find it in your heart to help this sweet girl, it means she will be saved! She is currently at a shelter with over 100 rabbits and they need to reduce their numbers quickly! She is one at most risk. Please contact us today if you can help.

URGENT FOSTER: Choco

ChocoProfile

URGENT! Choco is a small breed/dwarf mix, 2.5 yrs old. She is currently at a shelter that has over 100 rabbits in their care and they must reduce their numbers immediately.  Unless a foster home can be found with RR, she is at risk of being euthanized. She is territorial in her cage but does amazing in a foster home where she gets out for most of the day. Her foster is going away for a couple of months and she may end up back at the shelter if we they do not find another foster that can offer a stable, nurturing environment.  So many bunnies do poorly in a shelter environment… but Choco has shown that she can do great in a home! If RR can find someone to foster her, she will be spayed and given a second chance at life! Please contact us today if you can help.

URGENT FOSTER: Franca

FrancaProfile

URGENT! Unless a foster home can be found for Franca, an adorable small/dwarf lop, she is going to be euthanized. She arrived as a stray so her current shelter so they do not know her age. She is full of character – has a tendency to be territorial (but should improve being away from the shelter). She is one of the top priorities for getting out of the shelter because she is the most danger as the shelter is trying to reduce numbers. They currently have over 100 and need some bunnies to be moved elsewhere.

We would love to give this cutie a chance! Please contact us today if you can help!

URGENT FOSTER: Roxanne

roxanneProfile

URGENT! Roxanne is currently at a shelter with other 100 other rabbits. The shelter is out of space and needs to reduce their numbers ASAP. If a foster or adoptive home cannot be found for her, she will be euthanized. We would love to bring her into our rescue if someone can foster her!

She is a female dwarf 26 months old. She was territorial and very stressed at the shelter, and had a few false pregnancies before being spayed. She was in foster care but brought back because they were afraid of her and a child visited and she was afraid to come out of her cage. We have seen bunnies like this many times come through RR, with the right environment, time and patience they do amazing out of a shelter setting! She just needs to be given a chance at love. Please contact us today if you can help.

URGENT FOSTER: Moony

MoonyProfile

URGENT! Moony needs an urgent foster placement or adoptive home.

She is currently running out of time at a shelter that now has over 100 rabbits and they need to reduce their numbers quickly! She is 21 months old, cute medium sized dwarf.  She was surrendered because the family did not have the means to care for her. She recently returned from a failed bonding, the family just lost patience and brought her back. Territorial in the cage so does not do well at the shelter, but did well in her foster home. She enjoys likes petting and has fabulous litter habits.

FannieProfile

URGENT! Fannie was found on the side of the road. She is a young, dwarf who came in with an ear infection (her ears are now upright), pregnant (which was not known until she delivered a stillborn) and quite aggressive and territorial. She is improving a lot behaviour wise since giving birth but she still needs a bit of work and to be spayed. The shelter environment has been hard on her.

She is currently at a shelter with over 100 rabbits and they need to reduce their numbers. We are seeking an urgent foster placement for her, and she will be spayed, which will certainly help her! If you think you can help us save this little sweetie, please contact us today!  Time is running out. Please contact us today if you can help.

URGENT FOSTER: Nevada

NevadaProfile

URGENT! Nevada needs an urgent foster home. She is one of over 100 rabbits at a shelter that is full and needs to make space. We are seeking an urgent foster home in order to keep her safe. She was  found outdoors originally and brought to the shelter. She is a young dwarf lop, somewhat territorial, and does not do well in a shelter environment.  Having her spayed will also help immensely (which will be done upon coming to us) and a nice quiet environment will make all the difference for her. Please contact us today if you can help.

 

URGENT FOSTER: Felix

FELIX-Profile

Felix needs an urgent foster home!  He is currently at a shelter with 100+ other rabbits and running out of time (lack of space!)  He was originally bred for meat (and saved)  He is litter trained, playful, good with cats/kids. The bunnies from this shelter are set to come in on July 13th 2014, so time is of the essence to find a foster placement for him. Please contact us today if you can help!

Serena

SerenaProfile

Adult | Female | Soon to be Spayed | Arrived March 2014

Serena was an owner surrender to a shelter when she was 6 months old because she was considered to be grumpy and not friendly. Being in the shelter for another 6 months didn’t help Serena become any more friendly, even with the shelter staff making efforts to bring her out of her shell.  The shelter was just not an ideal place for Serena.   RR was called to spring her out. Serena went into foster care for a chance at a happier life.  When Serena arrived into foster care, she was scared and her nose was out of joint for being moved to a new location.  She grunted and lunged at any advance towards her or to get to know her, she even boxed her foster mom on the 2nd day.  Her foster mom did not let that get in the way of getting to know her and was adamant on making Serena comfortable and able to trust again. Within 3 weeks of being in her foster home, Serena began to turn into a different bunny.  She began to take treats from her foster moms’ hand and allow a few strokes on her head. She is living free range in her foster home and loves it, she has currently shown zero signs of being destructive.  It is likely that she did not have much, if any time out of cage in her previous home which often leads to cage aggression. We feel she should be either free ranged or penned with a lot of time out. Having the run of the main floor of her foster home, this gives Serena lots of room to run and stretch her legs. Her favourite thing to do is bunny 500’s under the dining room table. Once she is tired out from that, she will flop out on the hall rug for a nap.  Serena loves to keep a close eye on her foster mom, and watches her from her favourite spot in the hall.  Serena also lives with a large bunny friendly dog and is not afraid of her nor does she show any aggressive behaviour towards the dog. She even groomed a large dog that was visiting the home. Serena loves to explore and check out small spaces to see if she can fit!  She is a really great eater, currently eating Martins Timothy Pellets and her big piles of hay don’t stand a chance, her foster mom has to fill her hay a few times a day.  She loves treats of course and will crawl on your lap to ensure your not holding anything back from her. As well, has eaten all veggies offered to her thus far. Serena definitely loves comfort and frequently hop’s up on the futon in her room for naps, which is lined with a fleece blanket.  She enjoys being pet on her head and back now and will squish right down and tooth purr to show her enjoyment.  Although she has not been spayed yet, her litter habits are pretty good, she will be spayed soon and her litter habits will only get better.  If you feel you have the patients, love and understanding to give Serena a home she can continue to flourish, trust and  learn what being a loved bunny is all about, then send in your application to Rabbit Rescue. Here is the form just in case  RR_AdoptionApplication_2013-3 .

 

Delilah

Delilah

Adult | Female | Spayed | Arrived November 2012

Delilah came to Rabbit Rescue when her time at a shelter was running out. Once in foster care this big beautiful girl blossomed into an amazing pet! No longer confined in a cage she enjoys being free range. She does not like slippery floors so will stay out of the kitchen but does know the sound of a refrigerator door opening and will get very excited waiting for her salad.

In the morning when her foster mom gets out of bed Delilah greets her with excitement and will dance around and between her feet. This is a very happy girl! While she does have perfect litter habits Delilah will chew on occasion so bunny proofing is a must. She loves to play with and tear up cardboard boxes and paper. Loves her hay and willow balls and enjoys tossing around a toilet paper roll filled with hay. When its time for a rest she enjoys laying near people and will sometimes request some attention by tugging on your pants.

Delilah came to the Rescue a shy and nervous rabbit but you would never know that now. From her silly happy dances, to lounging and relaxing and yes even just watching this beautiful girl washing those big ears Delilah will capture your heart.


Beatrice

Beatrice

Adult Lop | Female | Spayed |  Arrived December 2013

Beatrice was returned to Rabbit Rescue recently, by no fault of her own, and upon her return it was discovered she had an abscessed tooth that had been left untreated. She under went surgery Nov 2013 and has been returned to her foster home. She currently requires some additional care, but once healed she will be the perfect pet.

She is an inquisitive, adventurous, bunny with the right amount of attitude to make her the funniest member of your family.  Beatrice will seek out people and insert herself into whatever you are doing (phone calls should never interrupt bunny time, FYI).

She loves to stare out the window, or the door, and can usually be found lounging between the curtains and the sliding door. Her litter habits are practically perfect. Beatrice has a love for bananas, dried cranberries and apples as treats.

Update:  Jan 7th she will be having another dental surgery, this time for a different abscessed tooth. She is a lovely girl still looking for her perfect home. Cant adopt? Please consider sponsoring to help us pay for her medical care. All donations are tax deductible.

Teddy & Cutey – Bonded Pair

Teddy | Male | Neutered | Arrived October 2009
Cutey | Female | Spayed | Arrived October 2009

Teddy and Cutey were returned to Rabbit Rescue when their owner could no longer afford them.

Teddy loves to be pet. He will sit still forever getting his head and body pet. He loves raisins, celery, dried mango, and bananas. He is a bit shy at first but comes around quickly. His fur feels like velvet. Cutey is a little more shy but she is very sweet when she opens up and wants to be pet. She loves apples, raisins, and dried mango. They both love climbing on boxes and playing in their castle. They love hay. It’s always gone so quick when I put it in. I have to fill the box up with it a lot through out the day.  They have perfect litterbox habits.

Teddy is the sweetest bunny I have ever met. He will run up to his cage and jump up as soon as he see’s me. He loves to be pet, as soon as you start petting him his tongue comes out and starts licking either my hand or whatever is in front of him like a box. Teddy is a little piggy he will  eat anything you give him, he’s not picky at all. Cutie is shy it takes her a long time to come around. She always follows teddy around. They are always licking each other and sleeping together. When they are out of their condo they make sure they can always see each other. When you pet cutie she lays down and lets you give her a really long pet she loves it. They are amazing bunnies.

Pippi

Adult Lop | Female | Spayed | 2.89kg | Arrived June 2011

Pippi is a lovely adult female lop. She came to us June 2011 from a very sad case with hundreds of other rabbits.  Pippi came to RR with 4 young babies 3 weeks of age.  She had to be separated from her babies in order to have surgery for a very serious untreated bite wound. She wound up having a mastectomy due to a large abscess that went untreated before we got her.  It was a serious surgery and she required long term hospitalization, but recovered very well. She was also successfully treated for an URI which has never come back. RR also had her spayed in 2011.

She has very soft brown fur and large brown eyes. She is an excellent free range rabbit preferring to live free range or in a large pen rather then being cooped up in a cage. She has definite tastes about her litter box preferring soft aspen shavings or carefresh over hard pellets. She is very clean and likes having a clean litter box. She is food oriented and loves her Timothy Martins pellets with plenty of Timothy Hay. Her favourite time of day is when the fresh greens arrive.  She has not found a veggie that she does not love.

She also loves a bit of papaya or pineapple as a treat and will take it from your hand.  She is not at all destructive. She does not seem interested in toys except for a cardboard box or paper roll. She likes having a carpet or a soft blanket to lie on as well as stretching out on the cool floor. When Pippi arrived inher foster home she was very nervous around people and animals and just wanted to be left alone. She makes noises which her foster has learnt is her way of talking and has never involved biting or aggression. As the months went by Pippi came out of her shell and now enjoys being around people and living  other animals. She follows her foster mom around the house like a little puppy, bopping her ankle to let her know she is there.

If she is left alone or locked up too much she becomes mopey. She has had perfect health since RR has treated her. She does not enjoy being handled but does tolerate nail trims and brushing. Pippi has been in foster care for a long time and would love to find her forever home with her special person to love her. Given a chance she will definitely make her way into your heart.

 

Christopher and Millie – Bonded Pair

ChristopherMillie-Profile

Adult Californian | Male/Female | Neutered/Spayed | Arrived November 2012

Christopher and Millie are bonded not only to each other but whoever gives them love.  In the beginning, you may feel like a third wheel, as they pay extra attention to each other, but as their trust for you grows, they will come to do the same to you. Millie in particular, loves to cuddle and lick. She does not like to be picked up but she will come wherever you need her to with a little coaxing and is oh-so-curious about the world!

Floppy-eared Christopher is much more reserved than Millie and is always on the lookout. He prefers to be off on his own most of the time and can be skittish, but he does show his love and happiness by binkying and bunny dancing for you. He doesn’t mind being picked up for a few seconds to be moved. Christopher’s foster parent is convinced he is equally as affectionate as Millie and with time, more of his personality will emerge.

They are big bunnies, and it would be best if they had a nice sized bunny-proof room to roam around in while you are away. They are both litter trained but should have litter bins big enough that their bums do not hang out. They love to chew things you might leave for them, such as Timothy-hay toys, so be sure to give them lots of chewable bunny approved toys and they will be good bunnies. They eat lots and lots of hay, and love botanical hays, lettuces, parsley and organic barley biscuits.

Whatever Christopher and Millie have been through, they have managed not to lose their sweet sides. If you give these two the chance, they will lovingly invite you to be the third part of their bonded pair. Watch their VIDEO!

We are being featured in the 2014 Rabbit Rescue Calendar! Check out the behind the scenes video!

 

Lydia

Lydia

Adult Standard | Female | Spayed | Arrived December 2012

Lydia is a 6 year old very sweet and energetic girl.  At first, she is a little shy, but opens up VERY quickly to you.  She loves to be petted and often bows her head down requesting for some love.  She is super energetic and absolutely LOVES to explore. Put her in a new space, and she will NOT sit still until she’s sniffed every nook and cranny.  Lydia loves her greens and fresh grapes.  She is currently being litter trained and doing a fabulous job with it!

Update:  Lydia is one sweet very little lady. (she weighs all of about 3 lbs despite being a good eater – so tiny indeed) She is very trusting of people and seeks out attention not to mention begs ridiculously cute for treats. When she’s not busy hurry scurry exploring, there is no expression of being timid in sight and only the tune of tooth purrs filling the room in exchange for nose and cheeks rubs. She loves and trusts people. Her litter habits are excellent and she is very respectful of her pen. Her items within it are kept in place and are not re-arranged or dug up. She would do well free range in a bunny proofed environment, but be careful not to step on her as she’s so small, moves fast, and she’ll follow you around like a little dog. Her one vice though is that she will chew on base boards.  Fortunately, she hates the smell/taste of Ivory soap which has proven to be an effective deterrent once rubbed on exposed areas. Lydia is a treat to foster and a very easy bunny to take care of and love.

Blizzard

Blizzard

Californian | Female | Spayed | Arrived February 2013

Blizzard came into Rabbit Rescue because she was not handling shelter life very well. She was going to be euthanized but asnowstorm bought her some time – hence her name. Now that she is in foster care there is opportunity to work with her one on one to show her there is no need for territorial behaviours.

Blizzard is also suiting name because of this girl’s active, outgoing, in-your-face personality! She is a flurry of activity as she binkies and Bunny 500’s back and forth across the room. Then, when she is all tired out she flops over like a little pile of snow. She is as active in mind as in body, and has a sense of adventure that knows no bounds. She will go in, on, through, under or over just about anything, and get into every little corner, just like snow! Any open door is a chance to explore. Slippery tile floors can’t hold her back and she has already mastered stairs. She likes to keep tabs on what is going on and will come darting over to see what you are doing. Blizzard enjoys being pet, whether it be head rubs or full body stroking.

She will require good bunny-proofing because she does like to sample furniture and paper, though she generally prefers her tasty, colourful chew toys. Her litter habits are rapidly improving now that she is settling in.  She would love to be free-range but for now she accepts that because of her mischievous habits she can only be out with supervision. She doesn’t seem to have been given veggies before, so she is just learning how tasty they are. Blizzard also doesn’t seem to have been exposed to a lot of the noises of everyday life and is easily startled by simple noises – the laundry machine, hair dryers, etc. Blizzard has a bit of rebellious teenager attitude and doesn’t like to be told what she can or cannot do – if she thinks you are trying to boss her around she may grunt and box, but we are working to resolve this. When she is scared she tries to act tough. She will need a person who will give her time to learn to trust again, then she will become a wonderful companion.

If you are looking for a spunky, energetic friend who will always keep things interesting, you should inquire about Blizzard today!

 

Midnight & Brock

MB-Together

Midnight | Male Mini Lop | Neutered | Arrived October 2013
Brock | Male Mini Lop | Neutered | Arrived October 2013

Meet Midnight and Brock. These two neutered males are bonded and have lived together for almost 4 years now. Midnight is a 5 year old lop, Brock is 4 and much smaller. These boys have very different personalities. Midnight is “all about the love”… very laid back, loves to be held and pet. He especially enjoys “Tellington Touch” massage, and having his cheeks rubbed. Brock on the other hand is the boss, more feisty and would prefer not to be picked up – although if you do manage to scoop him up, he’s then quite content to be pet. Brock does all the exploring, whereas Midnight waits for Brock to report back. Both boys are equally delightful in their own way, and certainly very happy together.

Neither have lived in a cage – but rather share a bunny proofed area in a room, of approximately 40 square feet. They have a ramp they like to jump up on, a sono tube to run through and hide in, and always a big cushy comforter on the floor to cuddle and laze about on. They drink from low dishes, and are litter trained. They have a litter box filled with a layer of very soft absorbent litter topped with their hay to munch for the day. They eat Oxbow pellets and hay, with Papaya for treats. They also enjoy chewing on organic apple branches, and organic rose hips.

They are looking for a home similar to what they have now where they can enjoy more freedom than a cage can offer and they must be adopted together.

Check out some of our videos! Video 1 | Video 2 | Video 3

Dusty

Dusty

Adult | Female | Spayed | Arrived October 2013

Dusty came to us when she was about to be euthanized at a local shelter. She is a very curious bunny who likes to be pet on the nose. She enjoys exploring and trying new foods and hiding spots. Some grunting and mild aggression during feeding times. She gets along famously with the foster moms cat. Uses her litter box like a champ. More info to come on her as her foster family gets to know her.

Angel

angel

Adult Lion Head | Male | Neutered | Arrived December 2013

Angel was adopted out by RR in 2008 after we had him neutered. He recently came back to RR through no fault of his own. Angel is a very playful and active bunny. He is litter trained and enjoys oxbow pellets, timothy hay, and fresh veggies. JB is used to having his own room and is adjusting to being in a cage when no one is around. He gets grumpy in his cage but relaxes right away when he is let out to run around, jump, play with his many toys, and sprawl out on the carpet. This is a fun loving and adorable bunny!

Daisy

DaisyProfile

Adult | Female | Spayed | Arrived February 2014

Daisy was surrendered to a shelter for the simple and sad reason that her owners did not want her. She has not had any apparent socialization in her life so far and therefore is nervous of people. She will grunt if you approach her too quickly.

She loves her time out of her cage and we are confident all this little beauty needs is a bit of TLC to learn to trust in people again. Though so far she is shy she has not shown aggression and does not try to bite people.

Daisy is a lovely little rabbit who at 3 years old has gone too long without having people take care of her the way she deserves. In Rabbit Rescue’s care she is finally getting everything she needs. A healthy diet, lots of exercise time and most importantly she is wanted and loved. We know if you meet her you will love her too.

Jet

JetProfile

Adult | Male | Arrived January 2014

Jet is a spunky little boy who was abandoned outside during the middle of a freezing cold winter.  He is named Jet for his jet black fur, but he does have a smudge of white fur over his right eye and on the very tip of his nose.

Although a little nervous at first, Jet is quickly learning to trust people again.  If you lay on the floor, he will come right over to say hello and he does spectacular bunny flops.  He likes exploring and hopping up on the couch to see what’s going on, and giving nose bonks to say hello.  He eats like a champion and his litter habits are virtually 100%!

This little guy is looking for something he’s never had – a home that will enjoy his wonderful company, will love him truly and will never abandon him outside again.

Elly

Elly

Adult | Female | Arrived February 2014

Elly was brought to a shelter as a stray. She was very nervous but overall a sweet girl. Now in foster care she is able to begin learning to socialize and is really coming out of her shell. Still a bit shy she is quickly learning to trust her foster family and will even hop up on the couch for a visit with them.

She is doing great with her litterbox. Elly loves to have time out of her cage and spends it exploring, racing about and even binkying to show her new found happiness. When she is ready for a rest she will find a patch of sun light to stretch out and relax.

While she is out she has shown a little interest in baseboards so bunny proofing is important but she is not persistent about getting into things she should not and appears to be more checking things out then really destructive. A cardboard box she can play with and redecorate to her liking is a great toy for a girl like this.

Elly has a very healthy appetite but in her opinion she needs more treats and will nudge her peoples feet and legs to communicate this. She is a clever girl who has figured out how to escape her pen. With a bit of rabbit proofing she would likely be a good candidate to free range and this would make her very happy.

Given her history so far we are happy with the progress she has made in such a short time. Her personality is independent but she does seem to want to love and be loved, she just needs someone to give her a chance and some patience to become the trusting girl she is at heart. Once she knows she can trust and love you its a bond you will share forever.

Jack

JackProfile

Hi, my name is Jack.

My foster mom likes to call me “boots” because of my little white paws. I came to Rabbit Rescue because my owner is going away to live in residence at school and he wanted me to get the love and attention I deserve. I am a very lovable bunny. I win all my new friends over with my big brown eyes. Once I get to know you, I love to be pet around my ears. I might even close my eyes and “purr” to let you know how good it feels. I like to spend time with everyone but I enjoy my alone time to stretch out and relax.

I am still getting used to my litter box but my foster mom says it will not take me long because I am so smart. Being the curious bunny that I am, I will be the happiest when my pen door is open to go out and explore as I please.

Whenever my foster mom comes over to my play pen, I immediately hop over to greet her with some kisses. I am just as excited to meet you too! Please contact Rabbit Rescue!

Bugsy

BugsyProfile

Bugsy was rescued from a shelter that could no longer house him in December 2013.   We do not know his age, but estimate it at 2-4 years.  He is charming, lower energy, cute as a button (especially with his button dots on each side of his nose!), wise and appreciative.  He is a larger bunny at 7lb but he doesn’t throw his weight around to get his way – he is a true gentleman. He was neutered by Rabbit Rescue and is great with his litter habits now. Bugsy has a unique hopping style which is likely due to being confined to a small hutch in his first life. He’s developing the muscles of his legs with regular hops and is gradually getting stronger. He enjoys playing in cardboard tubes, shredding leaf bags and playing with his stuffed carrot (adorable!!). If his foster mom squeaks the carrot he’ll run and grab it by the greens and play tug-of-war like a puppy! Bugsy is presently free range in a bedroom in his foster mom’s house. He taste tested the baseboards but quickly learned they are not all that yummy and has left them alone since then. He does like having a cat carrier as a home base to hide in. He is afraid of dogs but has not been exposed to cats yet. He may enjoy the company of a gentle, polite, spayed female rabbit.

Bugsy has had his fair share of hardships and can’t wait to find a family to love him for the rest of his life. Shortly after his rescue, he developed a serious condition called gastrointestinal stasis (i.e. digestive system stopped moving). There’s more info about this life-threatening condition, which any bunny can develop, under the health tab at the top of the page. Bugsy was lucky to be fostered by a rabbit vet and received immediate and around-the-clock care. He has never shown any aggression. Even when he had to take a lot of medications, he was very tolerant and gracious for the extra attention.  He has had full blood work done, and is in tip top shape! Bugsy is feeling a lot better now and enjoys eating his leafy greens and Oxbow pellets.  He adores Oxbow Digestive Support treats and will fly across the room if you shake the .  He has yet to show an interest in hay (despite a smorgasbord of different varieties being offered to him on a daily basis). He really is a lovely boy!

Oscar

OscarProfile
Adult Lionhead | Male | Arrived June 2014‎
Oscar is a bit shy at first and slow to warm up. He was really jumpy with sudden movements and loud noises at first, but he is getting more comfortable each day with the sounds and activity level in his foster home. He is happy to receive pats, ear rubs and – if he’s really in a cuddly mood – cheek rubs. Oscar will happily sit on your lap for a long time, but prefers not to be carried in arms for longer than it takes to get him out of his cage and onto your lap for cuddling or the floor for exploring. His litter habits have just about been perfected in just a few short days after his neuter surgery.
He’s a very curious bunny! Oscar is always hopping around, sniffing things and investigating his surroundings. He stands up on his hind quarters and sniffs then takes off under the furniture to check out what’s happening there, and then he’s back and climbing onto the bookshelf or the toy piano, he has even played a few keys accidentally. Incredibly, Oscar hasn’t tried to chew anything as of yet– not fabric or wood or anything else.  Oscar has enjoyed being hand-fed lettuce and dandelion leaves. As well Oscar enjoys cheek and neck rubs and becomes less and less tense as the massage continues. He’ll even start to fall asleep! Oscar has a few wooden/rope toys but hasn’t shown any interest in them yet. Although he does quite like rearranging the “furniture” in his pen, like nudging his little box slightly or moving his dish to the perfect spot.

 

Binky

ToddProfile

Young Lionhead | Female | Spayed |  Arrived March 2014

Binky was found seeking shelter from the cold behind an air conditioning unit in Guelph early this spring. She was taken in by a RR volunteer and is eagerly awaiting her forever home. We have just had her spayed and health checked June 2014.

Binky is a very curious and active bunny who likes to show her running moves during play time. After a lap or two through her obstacle course she always comes to get pets from her human. Her favorite activity (other than receiving all the rubs and pets) is pushing her soccer ball around her play area and she has become quite creative in ways to get it unstuck from corners and furniture. She is extremely affectionate and will make sure to groom you thoroughly after you have groomed her. She would best be placed in a home that has lots of time for her to play outside her cage. She has no history of destructive behaviour and has been exposed to cats and dogs.  Could you be her forever home?

Beau

BeauProfile

Young Martin | Male | Arrived April 2014

Beau (aka Bo; aka Mr. Bojangles) is a young black Silver Martin rabbit who was surrendered by his owner to an animal shelter. Since being in foster care, he has quickly come out of his shell to reveal a curious and energetic bun. “Beau” knows how to do his business, displaying excellent litter habits and he loves nose rubs. While at the shelter, Beau was not eating his hay but his foster parents are happy to report that he is now eating hay very well. He is also being introduced to a variety of veggies and herbs; one of his favourites is cilantro and he also enjoys the occasional fruit treat.

Bart & Rosie – Bonded Pair

Bart and Rosie were adopted out separately and bonded in a new home. The owner is no longer able to keep them so they have come back to RR. Pairs adopt out very slowly so please don’t pass over these lovely bunnies! We believe the happiest bunny is one with a friend! First time bunny owners, do not be intimidated with a pair… we find they are easier to look after!

Bart is a chocolate brown lionhead with a super sweet and gentle personality. He is quiet, preferring to get to know you slowly. But once he’s your buddy, he’s the first one out for treats and a scratch on the head. He loves his bananas and strawberries, and is not a huge fan of pineapples. His favourite greens (besides romaine) are cilantro and dill. Bart also loves his hay. Bart loves to chew on phone books and paper towel rolls.

Rosie is a calico lop with a spunky personality. She is dominant and loves to explore. Nothing fazes her, and she will find her way to seek out every corner and deem it “Rosie checked”. Rosie loves all food, but is partial to anything that is a treat. Rosie is very social and loves to chew. Phone books, paper and cardboard are her favourite. She enjoys nibbling on cords as well so bunny proofing your cords is wise. Rosie is very active, so lots of toys are a must.

The bunnies have been happily married since March 2014, with Rosie being the boss of the couple. Bart likes to follow her and watch her activities, but he is content to lay down and simply let his bride wander while he watches over the pen.

Sophie

This adorable bunny was not properly fed/handled/cleaned after and we took her out of that situation. We were told “be careful, it doesn’t stop biting people”. We took her home and she didn’t bite a single time- not even when we first brought her home or when we took her to the vet.

Sophie is a charm, and whoever ends up with her will be one lucky owner! She LOVES to be pet and constantly asks for attention and head rubs. She’s getting used to proper litter habits and an appropriate diet. We have tried different treats until she finally accepted martin’s apple dumplings.

Sophie is not very fond of being picked up, but has come such a long way since day 1 where she would hop out before we could get her up. Now that she trusts us, she will allow us to pick her up. Watching this girl blossom is beautiful, and she is becoming one very happy bunny!

Whoever adopts her, will be very lucky to have such a sweetie!!  RR is having her spayed on June 23rd 2014, she has already been health checked and no concerns have been found.

Samantha

SamanthaProfile

Samantha is a brown and white female bunny, around 2 years old, and is a Holland lop. She’s spayed, in perfect health, and has good eating habits. Samantha eats timothy pellets, timothy hay, and an assortment of fresh veggies including lettuce, broccoli, dandelion greens, kale, carrots, parsley, and endive. She really likes all three, and eats lots of hay all the time. She also has experience with treats such as dried fruit and banana.

Samantha is litter trained, but does mark with pellets to some extent outside of her box. Overall her litter training is good, but if there is a strange rabbit around she might mark with pellets around the barrier between them. Like most rabbits she is prone to chew wires and so should be kept away from them, and if near a wall with certain kinds of molding can also grind her teeth on that. She definitely needs to have access to something to chew, such as a box, snack shack, apple sticks, or something else on which to grind her teeth.

Samantha loves being petted, and is always eager for attention. While like many rabbits she doesn’t exactly love being held, she is quite calm and good when picked up and can be handled without panicking in cases such as nail trimming and vet exams. The vet recently remarked that it was amazing how calm she was during the exam. Overall Samantha is an extremely friendly bunny, with no aggressive behaviour at all.

She has a couple of funny behaviours she does, including the “ninja walk”, where she crosses the room slowly, step by step, trying to go unnoticed; except she does this in the direct centre of the room. When spotted she’ll keep on going as if she’s invisible; it’s very funny. She also does binkies and half-binkies regularly and loves to stretch her legs out to relax.

She is looking for a loving home as her owner is no longer able to keep her. Please contact us today to see if you are the perfect match for this sweet girl!
