Smokey was taken in by a kind person a few months ago as his mom was a stray that had babies and the mom was killed. He is a lovely bunny, litter trained, very friendly, but the person that rescued him is no longer able to keep him. we are seeking an URGENT foster home or adoptive home. Please contact us right away if you can help! He will be neutered upon arrival in our care.
Roe is a petite, young female Lionhead mix who unfortunately found herself in a shelter. She was very scared there and did not do well, but was there for 6 months. Her time was running out and so RR stepped in and saved her! She has only been with us for a short time and although she is still getting used to her surroundings, it is obvious that she is enjoying life as a house bun. On her first day in foster care, Roe happily flopped herself on the floor and she is opening up more every day. A classy lady, Roe has meticulous litter habits. She enjoys her hay and is being introduced to a variety of veggies and herbs; favourites include dill, cilantro, and a little bit of carrot as a treat. Her hobbies include lazing and chinning and she is also learning how to ask for nose rubs. For up-to-date photos and updates, visit Roe’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/
Booplesnout or Booples as she is called at the shelter, was found in a
stairwell of a lower income apartment building abandoned with no food or
water. Animal Services was called and she was brought to the shelter.
It took her a while to begin to trust the staff and she was very quiet. With a little encouragement and patience she came around and now answers to her name and comes up to people to say Hi.
Booples has been there since June 2014 and has been passed over many times. She might not be a fuzzy, long haired, lop eared beaut but she is beautiful. Both inside and out. Please help us find her a forever loving home where she can roam, play and be loved like she deserves.
RR is seeking a foster or adoptive home fo her. Would be great if we can get her out of the shelter, she has been there so long!
Linda is almost out of time at a local shelter. She was surrendered to them with another rabbit as they had no money to feed them. She is spayed and 4 years old. The shelter has tried hard to advertise her for adoption and even featured her in their “12 strays of christmas” but no one has showed any interest in her. They need our help! We are seeking an urgent foster placement for her. Please let us know if you can help her!
Male | Neutered | Approx 2 yrs Old
Cadbury was dropped off to a local vet clinic on November 12th 2014, he was left outside in a small inadequate cage without food, and only a very small amount of water. We quickly took him in from the cold and he was examined by their Veterinarian. Cadbury was given a clean bill of health and after being held at the clinic for a few weeks in hopes his owners would come back for him, he was neutered on November 28th 2014. Cadbury has now fully recovered from his surgery. He is a very sweet little boy coming right up to you to get his head scratched, and he also enjoys hanging out with our clinic cat. He has no fear and gets along well with cats, dogs, and rabbits. He eats his hay well (90% of his diet), and very much enjoy getting pellets, carrots and cabbage as small treats. Overall the clinic are not sure why Cadbury was left with them in the first place as his is an extremely friendly, well mannered rabbit, and he even uses his litter box well.
The clinic has done a terrific job of taking care of him but needs help now in finding him a forever home! If you are interested in adopting or foster him please inquire with us today!

Bun bun is a loving little soul who has had a bit of a rough go of it. His rescuers found him tied by his leg to a fence; the rope cutting off the circulation in his foot. His foot was so swollen it was almost twice it’s normal size. Once the rope was cut, his foot was able to return to its normal size. Despite his terrifying and painful ordeal, he continues to trust humans and loves to be petted and cuddled. He is a curious little guy who adores canine companions. His favourite snack is a nice firm carrot. He would love to find a home with someone who has the time to give him the love and attention he so much deserves.
Please contact us today if you’re interested!
These two rabbits were dumped in a horse barn in August. The female had babies, but they did not survive. She is now separated from the male.
The person looking after them can not keep them much longer and the situation is extremely URGENT. She thinks that the darker one is male and lighter is female.
RR would have them vet checked and spayed/neutered upon arrival in our care if anyone can foster them! They do not have names yet, so if you can foster then you get to name them!
Salsa was rescued from a local shelter and has been spayed and vet checked. Salsa is a very happy-go-lucky bun who loves to be petted and be in the spotlight. She wants you to know that she’s always there and stays close to you when you are together. Salsa loves to jump on anything that will give her a good view of what’s going on around her. She’ll take the highest vantage point to satisfy her curiosity, especially if it sounds like you’re getting her food! She loves to eat hay and greens and will get impatient when she hears the bag rustling. And if it sounds like pellets, she’s all ears! That makes for an interesting time when cleaning the litter box. She’ll always let her foster-mom know who’s really the boss of the bunny pen. She is very vocal and grunts/honks at anyone who tries to clean up her space: Don’t you know that a broom is very threatening? And a dust-pan is an intruder! Salsa is calm when being held but she’s happiest on the ground when you’re petting her head and giving her bunny-massages. She is full of personality and cant wait to find a home to call her own!
Lucy is a sweet spayed female lion head with apricot wand white markings. She is 10 months old and in good health. She needs an urgent foster home as her current family has allergies to her. She enjoys oxbow timothy hay, romain lettuce, parsley and a bit of carrot or banana for a treat. She gets along well with the familys dog and is litter trained. Her favorite toy is a toilet paper roll. Her family is going away middle of Jan. so we MUST find a foster placement for her by then! Can you help?
Adult | Female | 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. 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 .

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.
Cutey | Female | Spayed | Arrived October 2009
Sadly, in eary Dec. 2014, Cutey’s mate for the past six years passed away. She is a very sweet girl looking for a forever home hopefully with another boy bunny.
If you’re looking for a relaxed girl bunny Cutey would be a great addition to your family. While not terribly adventurous, she will come around to change. Cutey is well behaved, mature and very calm. Cutey loves to greet you at the entrance to her room, always wondering what treats you have brought her. She isn’t fussy when it comes to treats, Cutey loves banana, pineapple, apple, cranberries and her veggies.
She loves to play in and with her tunnel. She will pull the ties to turn it on it’s end and then look at you to right it so she can go and sit inside. While Cutey is very fond of being pet on her head. Her eye was removed in April of 2013 because of dental disease.
After being adopted out, bonded, returned to us and now losing her mate, she is in need for a forever home. Please consider adopting her.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Barbie is beautiful and curious chocolate coloured Lionhead bunny that was caught by our RR volunteers as she was lose outside. RR had her health checked and spayed. She has lots of energy and loves to run around. She was in a cage but is now in an ex-pen and prefers more space despite being small. She is a good eater and enjoys her pellets, hay and a variety of greens (and dried cranberries as a treat). She is young so she still hasn’t outgrown some of the bunny habits like chewing so a bunny proof room and/or supervision is best because she likes and needs a fair bit of time out of her cage. She seems to have outgrown her shyness because she is all too happy to climb up on me for a treat or hop over me on the couch. She doesn’t like certain loud noises and seems to have fallen in love with a stuffed gorilla we have who she grooms regularly. At this point, she only accepts a few scratches and the occasional stroke but that may change with time and familiarity. It is so fun to watch her do binkies and pops and the bunny 500! She’s a blast! Sweet and adorable bun.
These bunnies were recently returned to Rabbit Rescue. They were adopted out separately, bonded, and then due to no fault of their own, returned to RR (family is facing other serious issues and could no longer care for them). Benjamin is currently undergoing special dental care now that he has been returned to RR.
Benjamin & Bella are such a loving couple. They have two very different personalities, despite that, they are best friends. Benjamin (or
Bunny) is extremely affectionate, he’s always licking toes, or arms, and now Bella. He really enjoys sunbathing, running his tunnels and snuggling Bella.
He literally loves eating all the yummy good food groups: hay, pellets, fruits (apples, bananas & strawberries- he will literally take it out of your mouth if you bring it close enough) He also enjoys his martins treats. He comes as he is called by his name “Buuuunnny” from anywhere in the house. He is really such an amazing little guy. He’s a bunny 500 lap champ with crazy abilities to do air jumps and take off!
Bella, is a very sweet, curious little girl! She is very attentive to changes in her play area, and often checks out the scene before she flicks her happy little head and binkies. Shes very spoiled with all the love and kisses Benji gives to her. It’s really such a sensational thing to see them both adore each other. Both Buns have great litter habits. If they were free ranged you would have to bunny proof; Bella likes to chew on baseboards.
These little love buns need a home that they can flourish in.
Hello, my name is Betty, I came to RR from shelter that could not take care of me. I was lucky to be spayed by RR. I am back with my foster Mom and Dad where I had lived from June 2012. Spring 2014, I went to another house to be bonded with a big boy bunny – he didn’t like me. One day he bit a piece out of my ear, it really hurt at the time, but I am all better now and my foster parents say I’m still the cutest bunny ever.
I’m still a bit nervous of loud noises but I run out to meet people when they come into my room, and I enjoy being petted. I’m a happy, healthy bunny, I love my hay and veggies and never say no to the occasional treat. I don’t know how old I am but I weigh 1.5 kgs .
Anyway, I’m still looking for a nice forever home, maybe with bunny who likes me and won’t laugh at my ear with a little piece missing……Love, Betty.
Kalei (which means beloved) certainly lives up to her name. She was found living at the side of a very busy road. When she was found crossing that road, Rabbit Rescue was called in to help save her. Now in foster care we can see that this lovely rabbit is in need of some TLC.
When caught she was very dirty and covered in fleas and the were crawling all over her (she has since been treated successfully. No more fleas). She has neurological issues when we first got her, because the vet discovered she had a cuterebra. It was removed and she has now recovered fully. We also had her spayed and she is doing great! The vet believes her to be fairly young.
Kalei was very shy and nervous upon arrival but is quickly learning to trust in people. Instead of hiding she now looks for pats. She is flourishing into a very loving sweet rabbit. She shows desire to interact and be loved.
From her time outside she is underweight but she is eating well now and on a healthy diet. She loves her hay and Martin Mills Banana Muffin treats. She would do best in a quiet home and would likely do very well bonding to a bunny friend.
Kalei has really flourished in foster care. She is no longer the shy frightened girl she once was. She has learned to trust that some people are good and has responded to that love in happy bunny fashion! Kalei is a very laid back girl who enjoys the company of other pets. She would likely love a bunny friend.
As she is still young she is also active and playful. She loves to run and jump and gets very excited when you bring her dinner to her.
She gets long very well with the cats in her foster home and does not mind them spending time in her space. Though she will gently nudge them out of her box when she is ready for a nap she has shown no aggression at all. For all this sweet girl has been through in her life so far she has become a big love who is ready for someone to make her their own.
Meet “Michael Jackson” named because he is a nearly all black satin mix with helicopter ears . He got his “MJ” name because he has a single bright white paw. He is a small sized bunny. MJ was left behind in an apartment for 3 weeks after the owners moved out and though he’s not underweight he is a very fearful rabbit. When he was brought into a local shelter, he had to be rushed out right away as he was literally shaking so much they thought he was having a seizure. He was medically assessed immediately… and it was determined that he was so frightened he literally freezes and just shakes and shakes (mostly his face and ears). He need a nice safe and quiet environment to learn to be a confident and trusting bunny – so he came to RR. He’s easy to handle and his appetite improved quickly while being in a nice quiet environment. He can also be bribed with fresh parsley and dill. He’s not much for hay (yet) and appears to have been fed solely pellets in his first life. He was treated with Revolution in case he had fleas / mites and has been neutered and the vet has determined he is a healthy boy!
Francine is as big and beautiful as they come and she loves everyone! She came to Rabbit Rescue Inc. in poor condition (she was caught after being dumped loose outside) but with the help of our vets and foster parents she is ready to mingle and be loved. She enjoys to flop down and get pet and if you are busy she will let you know she wants love by head-butting you! She is definitely not a shy girl!
She would likely be fine with other animals in the home that are gentle (and supervised), she seems curious about the foster moms dogs/cats/rabbits, although have not interacted with any face to face. When she is happy she likes to stretch out on her tummy/side, head butt your hand and give kisses.
Francine is very friendly and seeks attention. She does not chew and is litter trained. She will talk right up to you and put her head underneath your hand. She is also independent and likes to explore the room. She does have a cataract and has been treated for uveitis. Her eye have improved so much and she can still see. She is being spayed Aug 2014. Could you be her forever home?
Oreo and Electra were dumped outside by their previous owners and rescued by RR. They are a very cute brother and sister pair. When not running around exploring the house, they can be found snuggled together, possibly groomin each other. They both love their veggies, and will even take them out of your mouth! Electra immediately is very interested in whatever you’re doing, but Oreo will observe for a while first, then come over and nudge you for attention. They are very sneaky, and like to cause trouble, but they know if you’re calling their name they shouldn’t be doing that, and will stop and pretend like they weren’t doing anything! Oreo loves his tunnel, and will take naps in it and run in and out of it. Like any sibling pair, they have their ups and downs; sometimes they love to play together, but sometimes they will “fight” over the last bite of lettuce. RR has had them both spayed/neutered, vet checked and they are in great health.
These bunnies came to us after a cruelty investigation. They were bonded but had to be separated upon arrival at the shelter they were at as neither were altered. Mufasa is a bit timid until he gets to know you, but Bijous hasblossed and become a very outgoing and confident bunny. Mufasa is slower to trust new people and things (it took him 5 days to try a new water bowl set beside his “favorite water bowl”. Once he gets to know you though, he bows his head to ask for pets and gives nose bumps. They both love to be petted, but not picked up.
They both came in with mild urine scald and were treated with revolution for fleas and antibiotics for URI. They have both recovered fully.
Mufasa was also quite overweight when he came in (they were fed only pellets in their first life) and he has started to slim down slowly. They each have great appetites for hay, Martin’s timothy pellets and veggies (especially dill for Mufasa).
The shelter has taken great care of them, we are so thankful for them! But they have a hard time housing larger bunnies and are very full…so that is why they came to RR. Now that they are with us, they are going to e slowly rebounded to each other. It must have been heartbreaking to be separated (although the shelter had no choice) and we hope that they will be happy together again after all they have been through!
More info as we get to know them.
Jasper came to Rabbit Rescue after living with chickens in a chicken coop and her owner no longer wanting her. She is 10 years old and has some mild vision problems. We spayed her upon arrival in our care and it was discovered that she had 2 golfball sized tumours (this is why ALL female rabbits NEED TO BE SPAYED!) They were removed successfully and an x-ray was done to make sure that the cancer had not metastasized anywhere. The x-rays look ok, but we are awaiting an official report from a radiologist If they are clear (based on the characteristics of the tumours) then the surgery should be curative, and it will not be a further concern. Jaz is really shy right now and likes to hide in her tunnel. She is slowly warming up to her foster mom. She asks for pets, gives nose bonks and is very curious. She’s a gentle and sweet little girl who deserves a loving, quiet forever home. Like Jaz’s Foster Momma’s Facebook page to keep up to date on her daily antics. We hope that someone will give this very sweet and well deserving girl a retirement home where she can be happy and feel loved.

Moe is an amazing, brave spirit. Moe came to us a while back after being dumped outside. He was adopted but just recently returned to us (Sept 2014) when his owners could not afford to take care of his medical needs. Once in our care, we provided the emergency surgery her required to save his life. After having his surgery and quickly came out of his shell. At first he was a bit shy, understandably as he was recovering from a terrible state. As he has begun to heal physically his spirit has been growing. His favorite things are his hut, head scratches and his kitty jingle ball (he even plays catch). He is not a big fan of pellets but will bounce for his hay and carrot tops! He is very social and at the end of his ‘exploring time’ will always come and sits his foster moms lap. He has no trouble finding his way around and loves to walk up and head but the cat in the home. It is very easy to overlook his missing eye as his goofy personality matches his permanent wink.
Max is an owner surrender. His owner has a young family and can no longer give him the attention he deserves. Max is a neutered 3 year old (July 3, 2011) Miniature Rex Rabbit.
Max is quite the energetic bunny. He loves to be out and explore his surroundings. He is not very fond of being held, but he loves to be pet on the floor. He has a funny habit of biting his own nails. He loves to chew toys and cardboard. Max has one blue eye and one brown eye, and he is quite the charmer. He was once bonded to another male rabbit, but unfortunately his friend became very ill. He has done very well adapting to his space without his friend. He has become quite friendly with the family cat. He might be a great candidate to bond to another bunny!
Hay is Max’s favourite. He gets very excited for fresh hay in his home. Please contact us today if you would like to give Max a forever home! He has recently been vet checked (Oct 2014) and is healthy.
Rex is an owner surrender. His owner has a young family and can no longer give him the attention he deserves. Rex is a neutered 7 year old (February 14, 2007) Miniature Rex Rabbit.
Rex loves his cuddles. He is the most sweetest bunny there is! He loves a good cuddle and enjoys snuggling under your chin or in your neck. He enjoys a good grooming. He can be pet for hours. He is a very quiet loving bunny. He enjoys relaxing underneath tables or in baskets. Rex loves bunching his blanket up underneath him and lying down on it. He is good around cats and dogs.
Vegetables of all kinds are an absolute favourite for Rex. He will eat them right from your hands. That goes for treats too! Please contact us today if you would like to give Max a forever home! He has recently been vet checked (Oct 2014) and is healthy.
Bella is a good-natured rabbit who is quickly learning that humans are to be trusted. She arrived at her foster home full of fear, shaking like a leaf and letting loose a series of grunts every time a hand came into sight. After five years confined to a small cage without much human contact, she simply didn’t know what to make of a friendly touch. She has become spoiled unbelievably fast, and now perks up quite eagerly at the sight of her foster mom, bolting across the room to greet her and nudge for pets. She is gentle, intelligent girl who craves affection and would do anything for a small slice of banana. Her gluttonous nature means she is not picky about what she eats, but currently her favourites are leafy greens and apple slices. She has good litter habits, and cant wait to find a home to call her own!
Prancer and Dancer are 1 yr old New Zealand mix, spayed sister-buns that must go home together, Both and they are spayed. These girls are just so affectionate and lovable! They also got gold star stickers on their health exam.
They originally came into a shelter as part of an unwanted litter….they were adopted out as little snowballs and came back a few months later to the shelter because they “got too big”. We are seeking an urgent foster (or adoptive) home for them as they do not have much room at their current shelter, and don’t have appropriate room to get exercise, and the shelter is also getting very full. All of their other siblings were adopted out over 5 months ago…and these poor girls have been left waiting and waiting…..
These girls love each other to bits and are looking for a calm home that will dote on them. They eagerly come to the open door for head pets and to nuzzle you for veggies or treats or anything! Prancer is braver and her more timid sister Dancer follows her lead. They are large rabbits and – like most bunnies – do not like to be picked up. Give them all their loving with all four paws on the floor and they’ll be happy as clams. They go into a cat carrier quite easily (for a bit of food!) to be moved around. They also need to have their nails clipped with all paws on the floor.
Please consider adopting a pair. Pairs are always difficult to adopt out, despite them being some of the loveliest rabbits and easier to look after!
Hello, there! This is Penelope’s foster mom. It was on a cold winter’s day in which Penelope was rescued by a Good Samaritan in a park. We are unaware as to how long she was there, but we do know she had been abandoned for a while. When she first arrived, she was very skinny and underweight, but quickly gobbled up all the food that was given to her. But when it came to treats, she was absolutely clueless and did not know what they were, or if they were okay to eat.
Despite her previous mistreatment, it definitely did not take her long to trust her foster family. Penelope is not a picky-eater and eats pretty much anything. She also has pristine litter habits. She doesn’t like being picked up, but when it comes to cutting her nails or giving her medication, it’s as easy as pie. If you’re expecting her to be a quiet, docile, and boring bunny, you will be disappointed. Penny is always, without exception, excited to see you. In fact, she is friendly with everyone! She is not shy at all and within the first few weeks in foster care has already learned her name and comes when called. All you need to do is just sit in her area, and she does bunny 500’s and binkies all around you. She loves pets, she loves cuddles, and she often nuzzles her foster moms neck and hair when she lays on the ground with her. Penny came to us with a little head tilt, and is currently under treatment for it. Whether or not the tilt is permanent, we do not know yet, but it has started to improve and is only slightly tilted now. However, it does not stop her from doing anything at all. In fact, we don’t even notice it anymore. So, if you’re looking for an energetic, curious, playful, and friendly companion, who will bring a smile to your face every day, Penelope is the bunny for you!
Ozzy is a shy girl full of personality. She knows what she likes and doesn’t and will let you know. She binkys for veggies and kicks dirt at you when you pick her up. She is very well behaved and has never bit and she is harness trained. She keeps still when you put it on and has gotten very used to it. She will always politely let you know when you’re in her way by nudging you with her nose. When you walk in the room she will binky and jump for you her favorite is jumping through peoples legs when they are walking and will always put her head down for some petting and she will snuggle with you if you have a blanket.
Ozzy is not too picky when it comes to food. She loves her oxbow adult pellets and for hay she likes softer sweeter kinds like oxbow botanical grass. Veggies wise she likes kale, dandelion greens and a little bit of spinach and for treats she loves apples and carrot. Her litter habits are near perfect just a few poops here and there but were working on it. Ozzy is pure white with adorable baby blue eyes. She is very curios of what your doing and loves exploring every nook and cranny. She won’t chew base boards or any wood but she will occasionally chew on wires like any bunny!
She hopes to find her forever home soon… maybe with you??
Cinder came to the rescue when a shelter deemed her too aggressive and was to put her down after she bit two shelter employees. She was going to be euthanized and a caring employee asked us to help…so we grabbed her out just in time!
Since arrival into foster care she has come a very long way. Cinder at first was quite aggressive and possessive of her space but after a few days she accepted some light petting on her head. A few days after that she started asking for those pets. Cinder also began taking treats by hand. She no longer shows any sign of aggression after only a few weeks. This crazy little bun makes a happy buzzing noise like a bumble bee when she is exited.
Cinder is also perfectly littler trained. She is very clean. She will most likely bond quite well after alteration as she currently snuggles up to her stuffed bear and grooms it. We have had her spayed and vet checked. This little darling will bring you so much joy and delight!!!
Meet Lily – a very happy bunny with a big personality that is always making her foster mom laugh. She was shy at first, but once she became comfortable her lovely personality began to shine through. She likes to spend the majority of her time digging, nibbling, exploring blankets and her tunnel/tube. She always looks forward to when her foster mom comes home from school and begins to run circles around her cage.
She LOVES getting pets/massaged, so much that she will not let you stop. If you stop for a moment (because your arm gets tired) she will be nudging your hand for more. She is also a very vocal bunny and loves to ‘oink’ at you to say “Hi, I’m down here, I want pets!” Lily likes to explore and will find the craziest places to get herself into. She will climb to the very top of anything – especially her foster mom’s mountain of pillows on the bed. She can be found bouncing on top or underneath of them. Although she is very active and curious, she also has her down times where she will snuggle and flop.
Lily is not a picky eater and loves a slice of apple for a treat. Parsley is her favourite food (carrots second), blink once and they’re gone. Lily likes the way SHE organizes her cage and is not a big fan of when you tidy it up – we have been working on this and she is showing great progress! Lily has been with her Foster Mom for a month now – She will update you with more information as Lily progresses. J
Edith WIgglenose, was rescued late last nite (Dec. 22nd) when her owner decided it would be in her best interest to rehome her. We think she made a great decision! Poor Edith Wigglenose was suck in a small cage outside by herself (after her mate died) for over 3 years without ever even being touched! We have no idea how she survived the very long and cold winter last year (2013) but are thankful that she did!
She had a vet visit on Dec. 23rd. She has a bad ulcer on one eye that has likely been there a long time and was left untreated. She is currently on eye drops 4 x day and will go back for a recheck in one week. She was very frightened at the vet but of course this is due to lack of any sort of interaction for such a prolonged period of time. We will have her spayed shortly. She is an older girl btwn 8-10 years and finally deserves a chance to have a wonderful life with someone who will truly love her.
Pics and more info to come as soon as her foster home gets to know her more!
Pancake is young, adorable, female lop. She has soft ginger fur with mischievous brown eyes. She was brought to a shelter, adopted and then later returned through no fault of her own. She is a gentle friendly girl who loves to have fun! She uses her litter box well and enjoys eating Martins Timothy pellets, greens and a baby carrot. She is playful and loves to race around the room but when she is in her pen she is content and never hops out. She is looking for someone to love her and open their heart and home to her.

Libby was found as a stray wandering the streets. A very friendly girl who allowed someone to walk right up to her and rescue her.
As a big girl once in a shelter she was very unhappy to be in a cage and she was running out of time there. RR sprung her from the shelter just in time to save her. Since coming into the Rescue she is a much happier girl. She can be territorial of her cage and has shown some destructive behaviours. Once she is spayed and settles in we are hopeful this will improve.
She is a very nice rabbit who craves attention and love. Libby is demanding of attention and quite comical as she is a vocal girl who will tell you if she is not happy with you. Libby has terrific litter habits so with some rabbit proofing she may do well as a free range pet.
Libby has not had a great start at life and needs to learn that people can be kind and loving. She is a big girl with a lot of love to give, she is 3.9kg. She just needs someone special to give it too.
Stella Star a 1 year and 9 month old bunny who came to a local clinic with a dislocated hip. Her original owner was overwhelmed and has decide to surrender her to the shelter. She is dominant but in the right hands can be very sweet, and their staff has had no trouble handling her but the owner did voice some concerns that she was aggressive with her. She weighed in at 4.5 kg
She has had surgery at the clinic to fix her hip and thanks to the excellent vet and staff, has recovered very well! She is looking for an immediate foster home, or adoptive home! Contact us today if you think that could be you!
Bonnie-Boy is such a sweet and loving little soul. He is about a year and 9.5months and is a male lionhead. He is a bit skittish but the more time his foster mom spends with him, the calmer he seems to become. He is also shy at first but if you take the time to let him get used to you it is well worth it. he is now a bunny that hops all over his foster mom and nudges her ankles when he wants more pets. Bonnie loves attention and anytime you pet his head he will settle down and gently grind his teeth in contentment (bunny-pur).
Bonnie is very adventurous, he is constantly looking for new places to explore whether it is a bed, bookshelf, the top of his cage, no challenge is too big. And he loves to run and jump. He should always have lots of space to run with obstacles. His litter habits are great in the sense that, pardoning the rare poop mistake, he always goes in his cage. He has yet to master discriminating between his litter box and the rest of his cage. However he was just neutered and so this problem should be solved very quickly!
Bonnie did have some teeth issues and was not eating when he first arrived in our care. His previous owner had never taken him to the vet and did not feed him a correct diet. He was in a great deal of pain from having dental spurs cutting into his cheeks. We took care of all his dental issues and he has had several check ups since then…all showed his teeth to be ok at that time and did not need any additional work. Now he gets excited for his pellets, hay box, and any green.
In February we will be checking with the vet again to see if all Bonnie’s chewing will be enough to eliminate the problem on its own. We are very hopeful he will not need any further dental work!
Bonnie is perfect for you if you can offer him: lots of space and things to keep him challenged in his exploring/play, tons of affection, and have a quieter environment where his skittishness will not be triggered often.
Winnie came to a shelter as a stray on November 14, 2014. She was dirty and very thin and not eating well. She looked lethargic and depressed so a volunteer took her home immediately. She appeared to be young. She was cleaned up and had to work with her to get her eating and she started to get back her strength. She would eat greens and hay but no pellets. Finally she started nibbling on pellets
She was handled a lot and she was so sweet and gentle. She started putting on weight and feeling better and her spunky little personality started to emerg.
She loves rumbling around under her blanket and racing around the room. She seems interested in other bunnies and not fearful of them or lunging at their pens. She is currently living in a big cage and growls when her foster mom reaches in over her head to fill up her pellet bowl but it is all talk.Foster mom can handle her and snuggle and kiss her which she loves and she is always eagerly waiting for her in the morning. She loves all types of greens, a baby carrot is her favourite treat along with dried pineapple and a Martin’s apple or banana treat. She takes all her treats from her foster moms hand. She is eating her pellets well now but she can be fussy about them. She loves her hay and greens and continues to do well. She is litter box trained and loves a large litter box filled with hay to snuggle into. Her spay on Dec. 17th 2014 went very well and she recovered quickly from it. She is aprox 8 or 9 months old at the most. She has lovely soft white fur with a lion mane around her head.
She has pink eyes that almost turn into lavender in the right light. Contact us today if you think she’s right for you!
