Dora | Adult Netherland dwarf | Female | Spayed | 1.2kg
Nessy | Adult Dutch | Female | Spayed | 2 kg
Both arrived June 2011
Both of these lovely girls came to us on June 27th from a massive rescue that RR assisted the SPCA with. Dora and Nestle are a wonderful pair of rabbits. They are sweet and friendly and have good litter habits. Dora the dwarf is the friendlier of the two, giving bunny kisses, and flattening herself out into a rabbit puddle of goo when she is pet. Nessie the dutch is very inquisitive and adventurous. She shows a fearless attitude in new surroundings. When her foster mom can’t find her, she is usually either at the bottom of a box of hay, or climbing to the top of her condo to look around. Both buns are perfectly at ease with dogs and cats, approaching them for a good sniff whenever they are nearby. These buns would make excellent free range bunnies with a bit of bunny proofing, and will make some bunny parent very lucky.
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.
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 | 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 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.
Lucky came to the Rescue during a roundup in conjunction with Toronto Animal Services. He’s a sweet bunny and enjoys a very quiet atmosphere to ruminate over his thoughts. Lucky is most happiest when he’s outside to experience the wind in his fur and the warm rays of the spring sunshine. He’s quite a fast learner with his litter box habits and lives for greens and the succulent taste of banana. Lucky prefers not to be held, but will demand pets by coming to sit beside you.
Adult Netherland Dwarf | Female | Spayed | Arrived December 2012
Peanut was brought from a shelter 10 hrs away that couldn’t adopt her out, and was getting full quickly. She is an aprox 2 year old, spayed, peculiar little dwarf, but all the more adorable. She adapted quickly to her new surroundings. She likes being petted once she gets to know you. She is getting the hang of her litter box and rarely leaves any droppings outside of her cage (this is after just one week in foster care!). She is a little skittish, and prefers not to be picked up. Peanut loves running around outside of her cage for hours, especially on carpeted floors. After just a few days, she explored half the house! She is a great eater, and eats all of her veggies, pellets, and lots of hay. Her favouite treat is banana, and will come right up to make sure she’s licked your finger clean. All in all, she is a wonderful little bunny, with such a personality.
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!

Adult Rex | Female | Spayed | Arrived November 2012
Hi, my name is Betty, I was found in someone’s yard, in very poor condition. I’d obviously had an unhealthy diet for a long time and was morbidly obese, my toenails were so long they were curling under and I had a severe case of urine scald from sitting in dirty bedding, I also had a nasty eye infection.
I have been in a foster home ever since and, thanks to medication and lots of TLC, I’m all better now. And with a good healthy diet and plenty of exercise I’m in really good shape now.
I am totally litter trained and I love to run around the room when out of my pen. I get along great with cats, and I’m even fine with gentle dogs. I have become very friendly and get all mushy when I get my ears stroked and my neck rubbed. All I need now is a nice forever home and maybe a buddy to play with.
If you are interested in learning more about me or would like to meet me, please contact Rabbit Rescue.
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.
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!
Abby and Emily are a bonded pair that likely came from the same litter. These two sisters were dumped in a neighbourhood in Toronto, however survived with the help of a wonderful resident in the area. Rabbit Rescue had them spayed and vet checked, and they are in great health!
These two sisters look every much alike; but Abby is lighter in colour, longer in her body and has a slightly smaller face than Emily. Emily is darker, round in the body and her face is wider. These girls are total sweethearts and enjoy the company of each other and any human friend that is willing to cuddle and offer pets.
We are being featured in the 2014 Rabbit Rescue Calendar! Check out the behind the scenes video!
Abby is an outgoing girl, who LOVES human attention and will seek it out if you ignore her. She gives the sweetest kisses on your nose, knees or hands. She loves to cuddle on your lap, on the floor or in your arms. She does not mind being picked up at all. Abby can be seen in her tunnel flopped out or running threw it.
Emily is shy but still enjoys pets on while on the floor but tolerant of being picked up. She loves to binky, run around and chew on twigs. Emily can be found sitting on her favourite pillow or flopped out underneath it. She is a silly girl but is cautious of humans. While Abby is easy going and warms up to any human friend really quick, Emily is unsure and will take her time. However, once she trusts you, she will cuddle with you, run up to you and play with you.
Both girls are very healthy, litter trained and love their hay, pellets and a wide variety of veggies. But dont go rustling up a bag near these two without giving them a treat after, they will beg and beg with their beautiful faces until you give in. Abby and Emily are the sweetest pair and are looking for someone to open their hearts and be the one to provide a loving forever home.
New Zeland | Female | Spayed | Arrived May 2013
Ruperta is seeking an urgent foster or adoptive home. She was spayed April 2013 and is aprox 10 months old. She was surrendered by a loving owner who wants her to have a better life than he is currently able to provide for her. A beautiful girl with the most loving and gentle personality.
Ruperta is very loving, playful, affectionate and friendly. She loves to be pet and will cuddle into your arms for a tummy rub. When out for play time she loves to run around, climb stairs and play with toys. She has met other rabbits and dogs and has gotten along fine with them. Ruperta is a gem. Full of personality and love to give. She would make a great pet for nearly any home.
She likes to sit beside her foster mom whenever she is in the bunny room so that she can pet her. She is getting more comfortable in her surrounings and she is spending more time out compared to when she first arrived. She does like greens a lot and the oxbow supplements as treat. She also likes recycled paper bag and toilet paper tubes. She loves to run and binky up a storm. She enjoys a quiet place as it gives her more confidence (she is a bit scared of lound noises). Ruperta is quite vocal and will let you know when she dislikes something.
Here’s my video!
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.
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 Lop | Female | Spayed | Arrived December 2013
Terri Ann came from a local shelter where she sat for 6 months without any interest. She’s a wonderful and playful rabbit. She loves being pet and literally pushes your hand until it’s sitting on her head if you’re sitting close to her. She shows a lot of affection. She’s not very much of a chewer but does enjoy hopping around. She doesn’t jump very high but still likes prancing around occasionally, but is more content to just laze around and often needs to be motivated to get her running around. She doesn’t have a roof on her xpen, but never tries to jump over the fence. She throws around toys a bit especially will go crazy for toys with treats hidden inside.
She’s a little bit overweight and is on a diet so gets a lot of exercise and space. She really dislikes slippery floors and especially hardwood which makes it easy to keep her out of trouble and places she shouldn’t be. Just add carpet to any area you’d like to let her roam.
Her xpen is attached to her play area which she seems to enjoy and usually goes back to it often after running around a little on her own. The xpen door is open to her play area generally anytime her foster dad is home. She needs a large hidey home when moving to a new area but once she’s settled in she’ll be happier laying around on top of it.
Being pet and food are probably her two favourite things, in that order. If you pet her head she’ll lay down immediately no matter what she’s doing and expect you to keep petting her. She often waits at the front of her xpen for her foster dad to come home, standing up and run circles around him as soon as he opens the door. She is a friendly bunny that will want as much of your time as she can get!
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!
Adult | Californian Male | Arrived December 2013
Sweet Jackster came to Rabbit Rescue after being found wandering around outside in the worst winter weather. He had been outside for at least 5 weeks when we were called by a kind lady who wanted to get him help.
Now in foster care he is warm, dry and very happy. He has a very healthy appetite and has not been picky about his food. He will try anything but truly loves Martin Mills Banana Muffin rabbit treats. We are slowly introducing greens to his diet and there have been no problems. He is enjoying the new foods and likely loving that his tummy is full now everyday!
Jackster enjoys drinking from a bowl. His litter box habits are coming along nicely. He caught on incredibly quickly with his litter box! He is happiest to have a hidey spot like a box with cut outs so he can go in and relax when he wants to be alone. He is learning very fast to trust in people and has already begun following his foster mom around. He is very friendly and loves being pet.
This incredible rabbit has not been treated as well as he deserved. In spite of this he is a very sweet and special boy. Once he is done exploring out of his pen he is quite happy to snuggle up and get the love and attention he has missed out on. Jackster is quickly becoming a social, sweet, friendly and loving little boy. He will be neutered soon and ready to find that special home to call his forever home.
Adult | Female | Spay in February | Arrived January 2014
Misty was rescued from a Shelter where someone dropped her off there in a burlap sac. Understandably Misty was afraid of humans and so the shelter called RR to come to her aid. She was taken into foster care and within a few hours, Misty was able to see, humans are not all scary. Her foster mom was very patient with her and spent a lot of time with her and she began to come around quickly.
She was taking treats and pets in no time. Within a few days she was displaying her new found happiness by doing little pop corns, binkies and bunny 500′s. Misty has flourished into a very friendly, loveable girl. She loves her foster mom and dad’s company and eagerly wait’s for them in her room doorway every morning for her breakfast. If she sleeps in, soon as her foster parents enter her room, she is eagerly circling their feet and greeting them. Misty lives free range in her foster mom’s office, she is not destructive and her litter habits are good.
She loves food, haven’t come across anything she won’t eat. She will climb all over you to get a taste of whatever your offering. She loves to climb and hide in tunnels or small dark places, she has few favourite places in her room she loves to nap, she will even up hop up on the office chair for a snooze. Misty needs lots of space to explore, she has lots of energy and spunk! She can still be a bit skittish when you reach in for pets, but once she realizes it feels good, she will squish right down and enjoy them. Misty currently lives with a very large dog at her foster home as well and she does not run from her but will run up to the dog for sniffs. She currently has a stuffed bunny that lives with her and she grooms from time to time. Misty’s foster mom believes with patience she would be able to adapt into any home environment and likely bond well to a neutered male.

Meet Elliot, a beautiful Hottot that was January 21st, 2014 from -34C temperatures! He has been trying to survive outside for over a month in the freezing cold and snow. Fortunately some kind people began leaving food for him recently.
We were asked to help with this rabbit yesterday and by the evening we had our wonderful volunteers arriving to help. This poor boy was so cold and hungry that the first volunteer on the scene was able to catch him in minutes.
He is now in a foster home and doing well. He is dirty and malnourished. He is very hungry and eating well so he will soon gain some weight. He is safe now, warm, dry, well fed and loved.
Please consider making a donation towards his care and vetting. He will be neutered as soon as medically cleared by the vet.
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.
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.
