I need an Urgent Foster Home or Forever Family,
can you help?
Jumpy always stands up on his hind legs when you come to his cage, looking for a pet or attention. He loves to rip around his cage, goes super fast, he will binky all kinds! Like he’s showing off, it’s quite funny! All of a sudden he’ll crash on his side and have a little sleep. He loves to be pet and will lay beside you – but not on you – for big long pets, with his legs completely sprawled out as flat as a pancake.
Jumpy is an extremely loveable bunny that needs an urgent foster or adoptive home, as the people that had originally saved him are no longer able to keep him (which they are quite upset about). Let us know if you can help!!
Female | Dutch Cross | Arrived 2015
Linda (aka Lindy Hop!), came to RR after being passed up repeatedly at a local shelter. No one was interested her and she was becoming very unhappy there. Now in the safety of an RR foster home, she is a very curious and happy bunny. When she’s not exploring, she’s usually flopped for naps under her foster moms work chair. When it’s time to get up and go, Lindy shows some pretty amazing bunny stretches and yawns. Her favourite past times, beyond naps, yawns, and adventure, include races around the room at top speed and binkies all around. Lindy has some of the best litter habits around, never once has she failed to use her litter box. Also, she is very good about not chewing things she’s not supposed to.
While Lindy’s adorable characteristics outweigh any negative ones, Lindy still has to work on her people skills. Hands make her nervous and she responds with boxing, grunts, lunges, and the occasional nip. She shows signs that she was either mistreated or possible hurt by people in her past and needs some help to overcome this.
Lindy is working hard on improving her attitude, but some of her diva ‘tude might be here to stay. As a parting thought, Lindy would like us to know though that despite her grumpy moments, she is very endearing and a pleasure to have around! In spite her fear of hands she is really a very social and wonderful girl. She has come a long way in a short time in foster care. Learning to trust that no one is going to mistreat her has helped her overcome some of her fear and she has responded well to love.
Lindy is such an active girl that she would do best either free range or in a home where she will have a lot of time out. While she loves lounging in her pen and feels safe there having the door open much of the day for her to run and burn off some energy has made her a very happy little girl.
Female | English Spot Cross | Arrived 2015
Salsa is a very smart and energetic girl. She loves to do the ‘Bunny 500’ every morning and evening when her parents get home. She is an expert at the ‘sideways air binky’. Always curious and ready to explore, Salsa will inspect all household items left on the ground. She loves her bunny pets and full-body massages once she’s had her exercise. She is very neat with the litter box (because she’s a girl). Salsa loves her greens in the morning (especially kale and lettuce) and will always be enthusiastic about her morning hay. She is polite enough to space out her food over the day, she never over-indulges at once. Salsa likes company and would make a great bunny for people who have another bunny to bond to her or who will spend time with her every day.
Female | New Zealand | 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 .

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.
Male | Netherland Dwarf | 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.
Female | Cross | Arrived September 2014
Meet Kalei! She’s a young, personality-filled little girl with a heart of gold. Her favourite place to be is sleeping in a cardboard box – a trait she learned from the cats in her foster home that she loves dearly. She also enjoys stretching, flapping her big ears, fluffing out her fur and likes to lie at your feet as you do work. She is cautious but curious and is always looking for new ways to get into trouble. Kalei is happiest when you feed her. She will happily hop around in circles or paw up your legs until you give into to her. If you take too long to put her food down or ignore her when she nudges you for head rubs, she will make sure you know she is displeased by stomping around you and grumbling until she gets her way.
Kalei first came to Rabbit Rescue covered in fleas and dirt and it was discovered that she had a cuterebra that was causing neurological issues. With veterinary care, Kalei improved and is now in excellent health. She is still a little nervous of the world, but her strength and confidence continue to grow every day. Despite all she has been through, she does not have a mean bone in her body and has never shown even the slightest sign of aggression. All she really wants is to be loved and although she is still shy, she is asking for more attention and head massages each day.
If you want a chance to fall in love with this sweetheart and give her a forever home, complete an application form today. Kalei is looking for a quiet and calm home and would likely thrive with another friendly rabbit or feline friend.
Male/Female | Californian | September 2014
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 has blossomed 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 pet, 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!
Female | New Zealand | Arrived December 2014
Prancer and Dancer 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 – 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 pretty ladies 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.
They are just so affectionate and lovable! They also got gold star stickers on their health exam. 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!
Female | Californian | Arrived January 2015
Stella Star a 1 year and 9 month old bunny (in June 2015) 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!
Now in a foster home, Stella is doing terrific! She is very friendly and quickly takes to new people. Such a happy girl to be out of her pen and exploring. When she is done exploring you can find her playing with her toys, digging into a box of old paper or pushing her little ball around. Or just having the freedom to claim a spot under the bed to lounge and nap.
Stella is a very affectionate rabbit who loves to be pet. After a hard day of showing off just how cute she is she will reward you with a big bunny flop to show you how happy she is now. Stella is waiting for her forever home and would likely do well in a home with other pets like a bunny friend or as a single rabbit where she can soak up all the attention. An easy going girl that will win you over fast.
Female | Lionhead | Arrived November 14, 2014
Winnie came to a shelter as a stray. She was dirty, very thin and not eating well. She looked lethargic and depressed so a volunteer took her home immediately. She appeared to be young. This poor girl was cleaned up, it took a lot of patience but got her eating again and eventually she began to gain back her strength. She started eating greens and hay and eventually started nibbling on pellets.
She was handled a lot and is so sweet and gentle. She started putting weight on and feeling better – her spunky little personality started to emerge. Miss W 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.
Now she loves rumbling around under her blanket and racing around the room. Winnie seems interested in other bunnies so may make a good mate someday. 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.
She gets cuddles and kisses from her foster mom and eagerly waiting for her in the morning. She loves all types of greens, baby carrots, dried pineapple and Martin’s Apple or Banana treats. Winnie will take all of her treats from her foster moms hand. She is eating her pellets well now but she can still 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 from it quickly.
Contact us today if you think she’s right for you!
Male | Netherland Dwarf Cross | Arrived March 2015
Monty came to us from a shelter when he was out of time, he was not a happy boy there! Now he is doing SO much better in foster care! He loves his veggies and treats and will take them from your hand eagerly. He is a bit cage aggressive at the moment but his foster mom is trying to get him out of that habit. He likes to have free range and has pretty good litter box habits when it comes to urine, there is the odd poop when he is out of his cage. Monty has been exposed to cats and shows no fear of them at all. He will hop up to them and they will exchange sniffs.
Having spent time in foster care Monty is learning that some people can be trusted and maybe even loved. Monty is a big cuddly fluff ball with a strong personality. He loves to explore his surroundings and can jump quite high. One of his favourite things is to get a good nose rub. He also is fond of romaine lettuce. Monty is quite an inquisitive intelligent little guy who likes to play with small wire/plastic balls and bells. He has sometimes swung the bells around as if to say come feed me. Monty would be well suited to a single person or a family with older children. He hopes he finds his forever home soon!
Female | Flemmish Giant (12 lbs) | Arrived March 2015
Dior is just delightful! She has the markings of a koala bear (grey coat with white belly) and her long ears are soft like velvet. She arrived in Rabbit Rescue’s care after being seized from a property with 38 other neglected and mistreated animals by the Oakville Milton Humane Society. She and her rabbit friends were being raised for meat in small cages. RR was called on to help with these rabbits, and we took in the majority of them.
When she arrived, she was afraid of people. It was clear that human affection was not something she was accustomed to. She was particularly afraid of brooms and dust pans and would grunt and lunge when these objects came near her.
How she has changed with a little TLC and basic training. She is now comfortable with people entering her pen and will happily run to anyone offering her a tasty treat (her favorite is papaya tablets!). She has learned that brooms and dustpans are harmless tools used by her human wait-staff to keep her castle clean. She has developed excellent litter box skills and has shown no destructive tendencies. She would make an excellent free-range house rabbit. She is a vocal bunny and will let you know what she does and does not like by purring and grunting. Miss D allows full body pets including her tail!!! (for bunny people, you know how painfully cute that is). She seems friendly towards the other rabbits in her foster home and if you have a lonely neutered male bun, Dior is a good candidate for bonding. She will make a great addition to any family ready for the responsibility and hilarity of a delightful house rabbit.
Female | Lionhead | Arrived June 2015
Unfortunately little Lucy has had a hard start. She was an owner surrender, then adopted out to bond, unfortunately that bond didn’t work out so she was returned.
Lucy is a big, beautiful sweetheart. She is very friendly and does well both free range and inside her enclosure, although she prefers to be out. When she is out, like most buns, she loves wires, so bunproofing with this princess is a must. She does not like going on hard floors, but happily runs and binkys on the carpet. She loves to race around and will binky up a storm to show you how happy she is. Miss Lucy gets along famously with her foster mom’s two cats. She also has perfect litter habbits and is a very clean bun.
Female | Flemmish Giant | Arrived June 2015
Amore’s beginning to life was not a very good one, she was kept in unsuitable conditions and she was being raised for meat. She was removed from those living conditions during a large scale rescue of many animals and brought to a shelter. RR stepped in and placed her into foster care. Amore has some trust issues and doesn’t like her head to be pet. She will allow you to pet her back. With some time and patients, Amore’s foster mom believes she will eventually accept pets on her whole body. She will take treats from your hands and give them kisses.
She is a very chill bunny, always in flop position, stretched out. She enjoys free range time to explore and hop up on couches and check things out. she can also flatten out and squeeze under low furniture. When out of her xpen she shows her excitement and enjoyment by busting out a few binkies. She has perfect litter habits and is a very good eater of hay and veggies. She goes nuts for her pellets! If your too slow she will box the food out of your hand to get you to drop it, but she is getting very good at waiting for the food to hit the bowl. She has been around a large, rabbit friendly dog and has shown no sign of aggression towards her. She does not like to be picked up and her foster mom won’t even try and stress them both out, to move her around, Amore will hop willingly into a carrier and then she can be transported in the carrier to another room. If you are looking for a big, beautiful, social bunny, and willing to show her all humans are not so bad, she will brighten up your home and days with her gorgeous fur and pretty face.
Female | Dutch | June 2015
Meet Stephie, she was brought to a local animal shelter in June 2015. Unfortunately, Stephie arrived at the shelter with a painful degloved tail, which required immediate surgery that the shelter was unable to provide. Luckily for Stephie, Rabbit Rescue saved her, took her into foster care and provided immediate surgery. Stephie had part of her tail amputated and was spayed at the same time. Her tail has healed beautifully and she is doing very well in foster care. Stephie has a beautiful vibrant coat to her and a spunky personality to match. She adores human attention and do whatever she can to get you to show her some love. She loves snuggling on the couch and will give you kisses to show you how much she loves you. She is a very brave girl, who isn’t shy about new places, people or things. She is eager to explore and excited to sniff everything she can. Stephie loves to show you she’s a happy girl by binkying and doing the bunny 500. Stephie is sweetie and will warm your heart instantly. Don’t believe us? Check out Stephie’s daily antics at her Foster Momma’s FB Page.

I’m looking for a Foster or Adoptive home!
Skittles was found in a park on the Martin Goodman trail about 2.5 years ago. He is believed to be approximately 3 years old. Skittles was not alarmed when he was picked him up, and it was clear that he was abandoned in a park.
He has a quirky personality, and really enjoys running around outside his cage. He is toilet trained and uses his “bunny box” as well as his cage when needed. Skittles gets scared when someone looms over him, so when you sit down at his level, he will come over and sniff and explore you. Skittles responds when you speak to him, and he knows the words “treat”, “puff puff” (his absolute favourite treats) and “no”! If you sit and talk with him for a few minutes, he gets really happy, and flics his ears, runs around at high spead and sometimes will even jump in the air and “binky”.
Skittles would do best in a dog free home. The home in which he was living had a small dog and he was always a bit shy to come out of his cage when he was around. He has never met a cat.
Skittles is definately a climber! He loves to be up high, and will jump and climb on furniture, chairs, tables, whatever! He is a fearless bunny and will even jump up on your bed in the morning when he hears that you have woken up. This is the time he comes looking for treats.
Skittles is best suited to live with someone who has a predictable routine; he likes to be around people and will come join you when you are sitting and relaxing after work or whenever. He will respond to your words, and turns his ears toward you when you address him. He loves his head to be scratched and kissed before you go to bed and he is in his usual sitting spot. With a loving owner, and a good home, Skittles will be a very happy bunny and continue to make you smile and laugh with his jumping and ear flicks.
Female | Havana | Arrived August 2015
I am looking for a Foster or Adoptive home!
My name is Rabbit, yep, Rabbit. I listen to Rabbit, and enjoy coming when called, or to get something to eat, and love hearing stories about your day! I was spayed in 2012 and had a check up August 2015 and I am in great health!
I came in a couple weeks old to a shelter in Ontario with my two sisters. All three of us were fostered by my mum. My two sisters got adopted and I stayed after waiting for an adopter with my Mum. I’ve been so lucky so far, however the time has come and my mum announced she is returning to Europe so I must find a new home now before she leaves. She is very sad and but a bit relieved that she found a good rescue to try to find a new home for me. She said I can trust them and all will be good. I don’t really like to be held much but do enjoy my pets.
I’m curious and interested what mummy brings from the grocery store, it happens that I’m faster at the bag then she can unload to the fridge. Every day, when my mum comes from work she talks from far to me and then here she is, opens the door to my crate. Eating, eating, eating and begging and then resting and then I get petted. I like scratches on my forehead, around my ears and down my back. At night I stay in my crate until I hear the alarm from Mum, I get an outing before she goes to work. I do my business in my potty, but I got a pee pad around my potty as for some reason I just want to pee right beside the potty.
Female | New Zealand | Arrived October 2015
BB (short for Black Beauty) is such a sweetheart and I’m positive that anyone who adopts her will have the perfect bun. She is very laid back and easy to care for. A bit shy at first of course but it didn’t take her long to explore and come over to sniff new people. She enjoys playing and sleeping in her cat tunnels and gets along great with my two dogs. She is about the size of a cat and is a little chubby but that is because she loves to eat and doesn’t run around too much. We only ever hear her when she chews on cardboard boxes and she likes to play in those too. She is so adorable and has never been aggressive so if you are searching for an easy-going loveable bun then BB is the one for you.
Male | Cinnamon Cross | Arrived October 2015
Hi, my name is Benny. I was dumped in a motel room along with a number of other animals. The owners just left them there. He was taken to a shelter but a bunny this active and inquisitive needed more time out and attention then they could provide. Rabbit Rescue took him in from the shelter he was at, and had him neutered and vet checked.
Benny is about 2 years old and full of energy! He loves to run and play and explore. When out for play Benny thoroughly enjoys running through his tunnel and showing off how happy he is with big binkies. When he has spent some energy in playing he enjoys being pet and will even hop on your lap for attention.
Benny is very social, not shy at all and gives kisses to his foster parents. Bunny proofing would be needed for this little cutie. Benny is simply adorable and will make a great pet for someone who will enjoy his comical play time as well as his loving attention.
Female | Californian | Arrived October 2015
I’d love a Foster or Permanent Adoptive home!
Rosie was found her a park in the summer and her finders have been unsuccessful in finding her a home. She is very friendly and likes to have lots company. She loves to sit on your knees or near you wherever you are in the house! She is very calm and very inquisitive. We are seeking an urgent foster (or adoptive home) for her and she will be spayed upon arrival in our care.
Rosie is a large bunny with a larger heart! She loves eating out of your hand, and wants to be included in everything that happens around her. She loves to eat her veggies, and loves treats even more. Miss Rosie is doing well with the litter box so far, and has no aggression whatsoever. She seems to be really calm, and is happy to just sit and let you pet her. She’d make a great pet, and is very loving! We had her spayed in Nov. 2015.
Male/Female | New Zealand/Mini Lop | Arrived June 2011
Asiago came to Rabbit Rescue when the shelter he was in could no longer keep him. He is a great and friendly rabbit. He can be a little hesitant of new people but once he knows you he will ask for and enjoy all the petting you can give him.
Bambi came to Rabbit Rescue along with over 100 other rabbits from a horrific hoarding situation. Just a baby when she arrived in our care along with her siblings and mother. Once adopted she and Asi bonded quickly and they have been together for years. Sadly their owner had to recently return both bunnies to RR as she lost her job and could not afford to keep them.
Bambi can be as sweet as Asiago but she is more active and enjoys playing and exploring. You can often find Asiago following her around to make sure he is there to share if she finds something good. Both Asiago and Bambi are terrific rabbits with very good litter habits who only want to find a home to keep them together and love them always.
Female | Cinnamon | Arrived November 2015
Bun-Bun was just a baby when she was sadly dumped outside this summer to fend for herself. She was very fortunate to have been spotted on the road by an animal lover who caught her and took her in. She was under a year old. She is now in foster care and is doing a wonderful job proving that even the sweetest, nicest and most loving pets sadly get dumped too.
Bun-bun is a very beautiful bunny. She needs a big space to run, jump and explore her environment. Running in and out of boxes and through her grass tube is her favourite activity. She loves to be held while watching TV but is very wary of loud noises, as her current foster home is rather quiet. She loves to be brushed, and is very affectionate. She loves her organic vegetables as they are stronger in taste. Red apples are only given as treats.
Bun-bun is litter box trained and not destructive. Given this and her desire to be out of her cage she is currently free range in her foster home and she loves it. She can be shy of strangers but warms up quickly once she knows you will not hurt her. Because of her gentle and sweet nature she would likely do well bonding.
Female | Dutch Mix | Arrived November 2015
Chip & Marshmallow are currently at a local shelter, but the shelter is OVER FULL and we URGENTLY need a Foster or Adoptive home for them.
Chip and Marshmallow are 3.5 month old sisters who love each other to bits. They are dutch mix and adult size is unknown because the father is unknown.!
Chip (black and white) has a very soft coat and loves people and affection. She’s the only one in the litter who loves climbing up on laps for pets (and even gives kisses on the face!!). Chip is curious and is quite a cuddle-bug. Marshmallow (white with deep ocean blue eyes) is more athletic and loves to “kick it” during exercise time! She loves getting lots of pets and affection with all four paws on the floor (which is normal for the vast majority of rabbits). They will make a wonderful addition to any family ready for the hilarity and responsibility of two lovely rabbits.
Spay surgery, included in adoption, will occur at 4 to 5 months old. Until they are spayed and generally through until their first birthday, baby bunnies are definitely more work than an adult bunny! Litter training will take patience and consistency from their humans. Baby bunnies have to be gently and repetitively taught what they are allowed to chew on/dig in/etc. They require lots of exercise and lots of patience, and give lots of love and cuteness in return.
Male | Dutch Mix | Arrived November 2015
Twizzler & Jubjub are currently at a local shelter, but the shelter is OVER FULL and we URGENTLY need a Foster or Adoptive home for them.
Jubjub (grey) and Twizzler (black n white) are 3.5 month old brothers that must go home together! They are dutch mix and adult size is unknown because the father is unknown.
Twizzler and Jubjub are such a fun pair of bunnies! Their coats both have frosted white tips which is just adorably handsome (they must have been watching too many 1990’s music videos?!). They love each other to bits. They groom eachothers ears, snuggle together, belly flop on each other, have acrobatic competitions and get into general baby bunny hijinx. They are totally “Pinky and the Brain”… with Jubjub being “Pinky”. These guys were raised from newborns and are well socialized and well adjusted. They would make a great addition to any home ready for the responsibility and hilarity of two house bunnies. Adopting a pair is really they way to go because rabbits shouldn’t live alone. Bonding two strange bunnies is certainly do-able (and we provide instructions) but by adopting a pair all that work is done for you!
Neuter surgery, included in adoption, will occur at 4 to 5 months old. Until they are neutered and generally through until their first birthday, baby bunnies are definitely more work than an adult bunny! They use the litter box for pees already but full litter training will take patience and consistency from their hooomans. Baby bunnies have to be gently and repetitively taught what they are allowed to chew on/dig in/etc. They require lots of exercise and lots of patience, and give lots of love and cuteness.
Female | Dutch Mix | Arrived November 2015
Licorice and Pixie are currently at a local shelter, but the shelter is OVER FULL and we URGENTLY need a Foster or Adoptive home for them.
Liquorice (black and white) is a 1.5 year old female dutch mix bunny with a fantastic blue crescent moon in one eye, her baby daughter Pixie (white) is 3.5 months old with sky blue eyes. These two are a bonded mommy-daughter pair and must go home together.
These two lovely bunnies have been well socialized, and are 90% on-the-mark with their litter box skills (and will be five star once spayed), and are brave and outgoing. “Licky” in particular is very daring bunny and is keen to explore anything new. She is not shy at all. Her daughter Pixie is a bit more cautious and likes to follow her momma’s lead but after a few minutes she will be binkying up a storm and showing off her acrobatics. Both bunnies are athletes during exercise time (morning/evening are their fav times to zoom) and then turn into adorable spooning couch potatoes once they’ve finished zooming.
These bunnies would be a delightful addition to any home ready for the hilarity and responsibility of two marvellous house bunnies.
Male | Lionhead | Arrived November 2015
Panther is a vivacious, friendly, curious, spunky little bunny. He is affectionate and always excited to greet you. He thoroughly enjoys the company his foster familys cat, and gets a thrill out of running around open spaces. The best word to describe Panther is “sweet”. He has an adorable perky lionhead hairdo and how he stands up to inspect things that us humans have. He loves his carrots and greens and raspberries. He often comes to nudge you and likes a good rub behind the ears. He is extremely soft, very quiet, and enjoys the simple things in life. He likes to visit your feet as he hops about and has an adorable personality that people love to interact with. One of his foster families favourite things to do is hold “family meetings” together, where they all sit around the room with Panther, watching his “rabbit-ness” as he explores and runs around. He is a truly sweet companion with a lot of personality to offer.

This big beautiful girl is Jasmine. Jasmine came to Rabbit Rescue from a shelter when she was out of time. Once in RRs care and after a vet visit we found out she went untreated for tapeworms, ear mites and a respiratory infection and had suffered at the shelter she was at for months like this. With some medication she is now feeling much better and has started to show her personality. Although, from day 1 it was clear Jasmine is a gentle giant. At 11 lbs and a year and a half old she loves head and full body pets, but of course cheek scratches are the best. She loves to follow her foster mom around the room and enjoys playing a game of bunny tag. Whether it’s a full body sprawl on the floor, running full blast around the room, or chinning everything in sight, Jasmine feels most comfortable out of her pen exploring. Full bunny proofing is not necessary since Jasmine does not display the regular rabbit destructive behaviour. She does not enjoy chewing cardboard, carpet or even cables, but will chew on blankets and fabric. Jasmine is fully litter trained for urine but is still working on getting all her poop in her litter box (this will change once she is spayed after she is done all her meds). She makes her foster family laugh every day and is really a loveable bun.

Koko came to us in rough shape – an eye infection, ear mites, a upper repertory infections, she was terribly malnourished and SO skinny. She was part of a group left outside in a box without any food or water. The shelter that took her in was not able to care for her and unable to provide any medical care. We immediately made room for her and gave her lots of medical care and love. Since then, with a few meds, lots of hay, pellets, fresh greens and lots of water, Koko is now a healthy, happy, big eared girl. She is very inquisitive about everything and loves to explore her surroundings. She is very tidy and has excellent litter box habits. She used be shy around humans but with more exposure she has gotten used to us. She likes to head butt to alert you she is ready for pats. She enjoys pats and cuddles on the couch and “TV dinners” – i.e., she likes to eat greens while on the couch watching TV. She hates hardwood floors but does well on carpet, towels and blankets. She isn’t all that interested in toys but loves to shred newspapers and magazines. Koko has had no exposure to any other rabbits in foster care but we image she could be bonded to another bunny since she has been with other bunnies before. She has seen the foster homes blind cat and isn’t fazed by him in the slightest. She would do well in an home with adults or kind, quiet older children. Koko is really a sweet girl and can’t wait to find her very own forever home!!
Donations towards her care are greatly appreciated.

McTwisp is a curious climber who wants to know what is over the fence, on the shelves, or beyond the door. Though her curious nature often leads her to the second shelf, she never seems inclined to chew through a new book. She loves her food and water. She is a sweet and growing girl that would be happy as a house rabbit in a loving home. She is full of personality and will often do silly and funny things to surprise her foster family (such as jumping right into her hay bin).
After a very rough start to life, she is ready for her forever home! She was bought from a market and then dumped outside to fend for herself along with 8 other rabbits. We rescued her from a shelter where she was set to be euthanized, along with some of the other bunnies. We had her treated for an eye infection, had surgery to remove an abscess from above her nose, and had her spayed. She is finally doing great. If you would like to help , but cant adopt, please consider sponsoring her to help us with the costs we incurred for her. If you are looking for a new furry friend, she would make a wonderful choice!!

Lulu came to us from a crowded local shelter. She is SUPER friendly and loves to snuggle and be petted. She is a very curious girl, and likes to be with people. She will happily sit on your lap while you watch tv or play video games. She is not afraid of the foster familys cats, and quite happily touches noses with both of them. She really loves to be out and about, and does not like to be put back into her cage. She is very fond of Martin Mills Apple Dumpling Treats, and will sit on her hind legs and “beg”. She snuggles right into you and tooth purrs when you pet her. She cant wait to find her forever home! Apply to adopt today!!

Mike was bought from a market and dumped outside and brought to a shelter. He came to us as the shelter could not keep him or treat any medical issues. We had him neutered and treated for ear mites. He was named after a long-time supporter of RR, who is a friend to RR and the bunnies!
Mike is a wonderful bunny. His litter skills are exceptional, peeing every time in his box. He is a very curious bunny and he loves toys. His favourite is plastic maracas which he will carry around in his mouth and shake to make a noise. He likes running through tunnels, and tossing a wooden geometric toy. He is a binky fanatic running and jumping and including his foster dad as part of his obstacle course. He enjoys pets and head rubs, and does not mind a bit being picked up as long as he is held securely. His personality besides curious is laid back. Not much upsets this boy. His best buddy right now is a fat orange cat. They will sniff each other and are totally comfortable in each others presence. He would do well in a house with other well behaved pets. This is a bunny that craves company, and if the cat or his foster human are not with him, he spends a lot of time sitting or flopped at the gateway to his area, waiting for someone to come play with him or give him affection. This shows he would be an excellent candidate to be bonded to another bunny. Will you answer his biggest wish by giving him the home and the family he hoping for?
Male | Netherland Dwarf | Arrived February 2016
Elliot is a 4 year old dwarf rabbit. He can be a bit shy at first but once he is comfortable he is very affectionate. He loves cuddling and the end of his nose being pet. He loves exploring and climbing on top of things. He loves greens especially cilantro and arugula.
Elliot first came from a family who was neglecting him and keeping him in a storage closet in a basement with no windows. His nails were so long he could barely walk. Since then he has lived in several homes without finding a family that could keep him and love him forever. He’s so cute and sweet, and cant wait to find his forever home!
