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.
UPDATE AS OF OCT. 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 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.

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.

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.
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.
Meet Kalei! She’s a young, personality-filled little girl with a heart of gold. Her favorite 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, and 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 Martin Little Friends pellets (or really any food). She will happily hop around in circles or paw up your legs until you give them 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 though, 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.
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!
More info as we get to know them.
Emma is a gorgeous charcoal gray Lion head. Emma is truly stunning! She is almost 2 years old. She was rescued by RR in Mississauga when she was left on someone’s doorstep along with another bunny. The other bunny (perhaps her bonded partner) was taken in by someone, but Emma escaped and spent 5 months living outdoors under a neighbour’s deck. Several well meaning neighbours kept her well fed with lots of vegetables and she would allow children and adults to pet her. We suspect Emma may have been bonded with this other bunny and this is why she is hesitant to become very affectionate with her foster family. She is still nervous, but will allow lots of pets when she is eating. Like most bunnies, she does not enjoy being held. However, we believe in time Emma will be a wonderful companion bunny with the right person. She has lots of personality and if the right person spent the time with her she would become more and more affectionate. She is living with full run of the basement in her foster home. Unfortunately her foster family can not allow their dogs and Emma to live together so they can not spend the time with Emma that they would like. She would make a wonderful bunny for someone and could be a good match for bonding!
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!
Edith WIgglenose, was rescued on December 22nd, 2014 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!
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.
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!
Is a neutered male with a big appetite. He 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, do find poop balls 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. He is also starting to let his foster mom his nose and head (and he has only been there a week so far). Monty’s coat is very shiny and silky, makes me think Black Beauty would be a better name for him!
Update as for Oct. 25th 2015
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!
Dior is just delightful! She is a 1 year old spayed female Flemmish Giant and weighs in at 12lbs. She has the markings of a koala bear (gray 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. We were called on to help with these rabbits, and took in the majority of them.
When she arrived, she was afraid of people stealing her food and coming too close to her. It was clear that human affection was not something she was not accustomed to. She was particularly afraid of brooms and dust pans and would grunt and lunge when these objects came near her. But my 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’s a vocal bunny and will let you know what she does and does not like by purring and grunting. She 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.
Rabbits have all the personality of a dog or cat, but are quiet and don’t require scratching posts! Paired bunnies are twice the fun, they often give each other kisses, spoon together when sleeping, have acrobatic competitions, and keep each other company while you’re away from the house. We are happy to provide instructions to safely introduce rabbits.
Pancake came into the care of Rabbit Rescue from a shelter. She was not able to adjust to shelter life and became overwhelmed and unhappy. She was adopted and returned to the shelter when she did not bond with another rabbit. She was returned sick and again quickly declined. She then came into the care of RR.
She was adopted from Rabbit Rescue but sadly she was returned again. This time also for not bonding to another rabbit.
Since coming into Rabbit Rescue’s care she has done wonderfully and has really become a sweet and loving girl.
She loves having a lot of space so she would do best in a large pen or even free range. She is not destructive and has great litter habits. She would love to have full run of a room or home.
Pancake would love a forever home who will understand she prefers to be a single girl and share her love with her humans. With people she is very affectionate. She will hang out with you all the time and loves to be pet. A silly girl who wants to be the center of attention.
This sweetie pie deserves to finally find her forever home! Is it with you?
Lucy was an Owner Surrender, was adopted out to bond, bond didn’t work so she was returned. She gets a long great with cats.
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 make sure those are out of her reach. 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. She gets along famously with her foster mom’s two cats. She also has perfect litter habbits and is a very clean rabbit. She enjoys being a part of the crew and has a lot of love to give.
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 wont 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.
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. Stehie 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 www.facebook.com/pages/
Pinot and Pickles are almost twins, and are often spotted together. They are both mostly white, with dark grey ears. The only difference is that Pinot has two dots on his nose, and Pickles has one. Pinot was namedafter the grape. He looks like a French artist from the 60s, and he would probably look natural in a beret holding a paint palette. He’s slightly fuzzier than his brothers and sisters, but not much. In any case, Hazel(mom) doesn’t shed much at all, so we’re sure he will grow up to be fuzzy, soft and very clean.
Both Pinot and Pickles are at bit shyer than their siblings, and protest most strongly about being picked up and held. This may just be a passing phase. They like checking people out from across the room before approaching. But they do come to visit, and are very friendly and happy bunnies.
They are litter trained for pee, and always go in the litter box. Poops still tend to be scattered all around the room, but that should change once neutered.
Pinot was born on July 9, 2015.
Pecan was the runt of Hazel’s litter, and from the beginning, we always knew she was a little bit different. Whenever people would come to see the baby bunnies, they always gravitated toward Pecan. There’s just something about her. As she has grown, we’ve noticed a physical difference too – she’s the only one of the litter to show a slight lion-y quality. She’s definitely the most fuzzy of all, and quite a beauty to behold. She looks like a tub of butterscotch ripple, and her personality is just as delicious. Of the whole litter, Pecan is the friendliest toward people and is the most amenable to being held and petted (probably because she knows everyone wants to). When a new person comes in the room, she’s almost always the first to come and say hello. And if you visit with bare feet, you might just get your toes nibbled. She loves all of her siblings, but her favourite is her big sister Pepper,
She’s litter trained for pee, and without fail goes in the litter box. Poops are still scattered all around, but that will change once spayed.
Pepper was born on June 9, 2015.
Pinot and Pickles are almost twins, and are often spotted together. They are both mostly white, with dark grey ears. The only difference is that Pinot has two dots on his nose, and Pickles has one. Pickles was very friendly and curious as a baby. She would often lick our fingers and toes as she was exploring her new world. She seems to have grown out of that for the moment, but hopefully she will grow up to give kisses again one day.

Out of Hazel’s 7 kits, Pancake was the one who got the best looks. Her markings are distinctive and very handsome. She’s white, with t-shaped stripes on her back and a handlebar mustache. She loves her brothers and sisters, and is quite comfortable to huddle with them. But she can often be found off exploring on her own. She loves the Cottontail Cottage and the Maze Haven, and anywhere with holes and tunnels that she can zoom in and out of. She’s not a huge dandelion fan, but she likes parsley. She’s quite content to munch on hay and pellets. She likes her water from a bowl, not a bottle.
She’s litter trained for pee, and without fail goes in the litter box. Poops are still scattered all around, but once neutered that will change.
Like all of Hazel’s babies, she’s been exposed to people since day 1. she’s quite happy around her foster parents, but prefers the company of her brothers and sisters. At 5 weeks old, she’s going through her rebellious teenage stage where she doesn’t really like to be picked up. she’d rather be off running around doing binkys.
Pancake was born on June 9, 2015.
PopTart likes to have fun. She’s white, with a distinctive black stripe on her back, reminiscent of a toaster slot (which is why he’s named after a toaster pastry). Like her brother Pancake, she also has a handlebar mustache. PopTart is the best at zooming around the room, and is often the first to explore when a new thing or person comes into her space. She likes every food she is given, and prefers her water from a bowl, rather than a bottle.
She’s litter trained for pee, and without fail goes in the litter box. Poops are still scattered all around, but that will change once she is old enough to be neutered.

SKITTLES IS LOOKING FOR A FOSTER HOME! (or permanent home!)
Skittles was found in a park on the Martin Goodman trail about 2.5 years ago. He is believed to be aprox 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.
My name is Rabbit (question my mum not calling me after my given name Diamond). 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 Aug 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’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.
I don’t really like to be held much but do enjoy my pets. I hope that someone is able to take me in as a foster bunny (or adopt me!)
Willow was one of 3 rabbits rescued from a Scarborough park in September, 2015. Although we don’t know his age he appears to be fairly young. He is a shy bunny who likes to explore but prefers the safety of his pen to lounge in. He has already mastered the art of being at his foster moms feet whenever she opens the fridge door. He loves running around the room at high speeds which is fun to watch but mostly he is a calm bunny. We had him neutered and treated for fleas end of Sept. 2015. He would make a lovely friend! Will you give him the second chance he deserves?
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.
Benny is a darling little guy who sadly was dumped at a motel along with some other animals. He is very interactive and social but not doing well at all in a shelter environment. He needs more time out and space than they are able to provide for him. Benny is approx. two years old. Once in foster care he will be neutered and ready for adoption.
Rosie was found her a park behind 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.
As of Oct. 26th she is still looking for a foster home!! She seems to really enjoy watching basement but really loves to explore the house from top to bottom. She would make a fantastic friend for someone! Give her a home today!
Vanilope was named after a character in the movie Wreck it Ralph. The name is ironic as she has never wrecked a thing. Other than her cardboard box which she enjoys tearing up. She is not destructive with furniture or baseboards.
She enjoys being pet and will come sit on the couch with you. She is a special girl that has never shown any aggression in spite her rough start at life.
Vanilope was rescued by RR from a hoarder. Once in the safety of Rabbit Rescue we found she had a special bond with another female so they were kept together. They thrived and were always snuggling and very happy.
Sadly her friend has passed away and Vanilope appears to be lonely. Her owner has surrendered her to us (Oct 2015). She would likely bond well to another rabbit. She seems to be missing having a bunny friend and is the perfect candidate to bond to another bunny!
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 (June 2011). 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.
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 – 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!!
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 is under a year old. The vet believes her to be 6 months old now and in foster care she is doing a wonderful job of 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 favorite 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.
Given her gentle and sweet nature she would likely do well bonding.
Cass is currently at a local shelter, but the shelter is OVER FULL and we urgently need a foster or adoptive home for her.
Cass is a 3 yr old neutered male lavender grey lionhead / angora mix. Has a really sweet docile personality (yet still outgoing in his own way!) and is a great candidate to bond with your lonely spayed female bunny.
Cass is such a sweet boy and is he gorgeous or what?! He has violet-ish eyes to go with his beautify grey lavender coat. Since he has angora in his heritage his new family must keep him well combed so he does not get matted (rabbits have sensitive skin so please use a gentle comb not the sharp ended ones used for dog undercoats!). Cass seems to be ok with gentle and respectful dogs and cats if properly introduced and would probably be ok with gentle and respectful kids too! He would love to have his very own lady bunny (spayed!) to bond with too but this is not mandatory for adoption.
Cass is a really amazing find. Since he has been neutered for quite a while his hormones are nice and low which makes him a better candidate for bonding.
***Cass came to the shelter along with female bunny Brie, (also listed on our site) though they were in separate cages they are quite nice towards each other. So if you are looking to adopt a lovely pair of bunnies we expect the bonding process might be more straight forward for these two ***
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 cuddlebug. 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 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 in return.
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.
Liquorice 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 marvelous house bunnies.
Robun Hood is currently at a local shelter, but the shelter is OVER FULL and we urgently need a foster or adoptive home for them.
Robun Hood is a 9 month old boy lionhead mix. He’s neutered and ready adopt his very own humans!
Robun would love a home that will enjoy his teenage antics, will build him obstacle courses and let him exercise oodles! With 2 hours of exercise per day (standard for all bunnies!) he is quite a lovely boy . He is happiest when he gets lots of exercise time.
If you cannot adopt please consider fostering Robun! We’d really like to get him out of the shelter so he can get enough exercise and be a happy, balanced bunny.
Panther is currently at a local shelter, but the shelter is OVER FULL and we urgently need a foster or adoptive home for them.
Panther is a small-medium 9 month old lionhead mix with some salt and pepper flecking in his coat to give him a wise James Bond look.
Panther is a very active teenage boy and needs a home that will appreciate his antics and athleticism! He’d love cardboard box obstacle courses and a carpeted area where he can really get a good grip and KICK IT! hehe. He can do amazing Inde 500 races with his shadow.
Can’t adopt but want to help in the second best way possible?! Please consider becoming a bunny foster home! We’d love to get Panther out of the shelter so he can get enough exercise and be a happy, balanced bunny. Panther is SO much fun!!! A really great bunny who would make a wonderful friend for you.
