Rachel looks after the RR store, more information coming soon!
Hi Everyone, allow me to introduce myself.. I’m Bernie! I am so excited to meet you all! I guess you would like to know a bit about me. Well, I was found as a stray where I was scooped up and saved! I was recently brought to Rabbit Rescue. My friends took great care of me, had me checked by the doctors, neutered and all cleaned up. You will notice that I have some shaved spots on my belly and tail; this is because I had matted fur and urine scald from my former life.
Now my foster family is taking great care of me until I find my forever home! I have only been here for a short time, but I am one happy guy. I warmed up very quickly, especially once they started scratching my head, I’m a sucker for that. I have so many great qualities. I am laid back, relaxed, love attention and I am fully litter trained! I do however prefer to be on the ground, I do not like being picked up but once you come down to my level.. I’m all yours! I am a great eater, especially when it comes to my favorite apple treats. I can be a little bit sassy when someone tries to take my food bowl away, but my foster parents have been hand feeding me to show me that they want to give me food, not steal it. A few of my favourite past times are lying on the mat by the front door, sitting at my foster parents feet while they do the dishes (sometimes I like to chase them around the kitchen too), playing with my jingle ball toy and eating all of my food. I can’t wait to meet my future forever parents! If I sound like the right guy for you, please send in an adoption application and bring me home to love!
Hi, I’m known as the Marshmallow! Picked up as a stray, I was pretty malnourished.
Turns out I really love my hoomins! I like their funny music and when they make loud noises it doesn’t bother me at all. Lady hoomin says I have nerves of steel and the other animals in the household don’t bother me at all. I’m pretty impervious to them in fact! I didn’t really get what they wanted me to do with my poops at first but now I’ve figured out that keeping them all in my litter pan is the way to go. I don’t mind doing this anyway because I spend a lot of time in it, munching on my hay (western timothy is my favourite so far).
Food is the absolute best!!! I’ll take anything you wanna give me but I’m really good at only eating a little bit of my yummies at a time so that my hoomins don’t have to portion my fruity treats. Pellets on the other hand I will eat all day, every day. I make little grunty piggy noises when I do but I just can’t help how happy I am when I nom them. Toys are OK I guess, but what I really like is to explore and run! My hoomins are really happy that I don’t like to put things in my mouth and mostly I just bump everything with my nose to test it out. That means I get to spend a lot of time just roaming around and doing my favourite things like zooming around the living room table (always on the rug though because I don’t like slippery floors).
Getting pet is really nice and I will usually stop my zoomies for some really relaxing ear strokes. My lady hoomin has also shown me that if I give her a nose boop kiss, then I get a treat. I like flopping by the fireplace, hopping on and off the couch until I’m pooped, and passing out in my litter pan. RR is having me neutered on Nov. 2nd and then I”ll be ready for my forever home!! Please adopt me, Im so fun and sweet and promise to be your best friend.
I was found as a stray on the streets and brought to a shelter. However, my time there ran out and RR saved me! I am still a little nervous but settling in very quickly. I like to run laps around the couch then flop on the floor to rest. I enjoy being pet but get pretty nervous if you try to pick me up – although I am getting braver each day! My foster mom tells me I am very soft and sweet. My favourite food is carrot tops and I take treats very gently. I love exploring everywhere so you need to keep an eye on me to make sure I am safe. I have lots of love to give – I just need a bit of patience and time to feel comfortable. I am being spayed Oct 2017 by RR.
Caramel is one of Meridas babies (who came to us pregnant). Caramel was born on Canada day 2017. He is a boy! Very active, loves to climb and squeeze under obstacles. He likes his hamster food and also loves oats, lettuce, cherrios and martins apple dumlpings so far. He likes to make a cozy nest for his bed with shredded kleenex. He seems to keep a bit of food stashed in his bed for a midnight snack! He has figured out his wheel and will really get it moving as he grows up. Caramel is quite petite and is learning to be handled and is doing so well settling in, in quickly.
Abby was found in a basement, not being cared for, with almost no human
interaction and not being provided with adequate food or water. She was
rescued and has just been spayed. She is seeking an urgent foster home.
Please contact us if you can help.
litter and was 2.5 months at time of surrender.
He is shy but warms up quickly. He prefers women over men, but with time warms up to men as well. He is very curious and adventurous, and loves running around in his ball and exploring cardboard boxes. He gets lot of handling time in his foster home, and also enjoys running in his ball for 10 minutes at a time.
Shy (aka Maggie), a female hamster, was surrendered to us on June 23rd 2017, she was part of an accidental litter and was 2.5 months at time of surrender. She’s a only a little bit shy but warms up quickly.
Shy is an active little lady who is doing very well in her foster home. Contrary to her adorable name, she is actually friendly, eager to explore new places, and meet new people! After some patience, Shy has shown to be a very curious animal. She loves playing with her chew toys and moving around nesting material in her home. With lots of love and care she will become a confident hammy in her new forever home!
On July 7th she gave birth to 7 babies, who will be weaned in 3 weeks. (She came to us pregnant). We are looking for 7 foster homes for her babies. She can be adopted once the babies are weaned, but we are happy to accept an application for her adoption before then (you would be able to bring her home once babies weaned).
Fergie was spotted trying to fit in with a family of wild bunnies in a ravine that ran between the backyards of a large stretch of houses; separated by chain link fencing all along. The area was a haven for such predators as wolves, coyotes, and foxes since the ravine connected to large expanses of land and Hydro fields on both ends.
Although, given certain circumstances, bunnies could potentially out run such predators; scared bunnies that is; Fergie (like most domesticated rabbits) didn’t know to be afraid. A local resident observed Fergie marching up to a dog (to make friends undoubtedly) who was walking off leash with his/her guardian somewhere near by. Things could easily have turned out bad for Fergie…
Aside from predators, Fergie had other odds working against her survival; lack of proper nutrition, fleas, ticks, parasites, cars AND weather conditions.
As it turns out from speaking with local residents, Fergie had spent the entire winter outside! The first reported sighting was late October; which meant that she managed for 7 months to beat all odds. Also, given the growth spurt that residents have observed over the past seven months (despite being malnourished) it is evident that Fergie was just a little bunny when she was left outside.
Upon observing Fergie for the first time, it took mere seconds to realize that here was a bunny that was full of life and with the gentlest of spirits. Eventually Fergie was caught by our expert bunny catcher. Now that Fergie is safe and sound and getting healthy form her ordeal outside, her personality is really starting to shine…
Fergie is essentially a lap bun! She loves physical contact, in general, and when you sit down on the floor with your legs extended outward she will hop onto your lap and snuggle into you – so long as you continue to pet her in her favourite way! This involves starting at the bridge of her nose and working your way over her flattened ears all the way down to her bum in one gentle motion. She also loves being spoken to softly; she looks up at you with adoring eyes when you do so. If you bend down so that she can reach, you will get Eskimo kisses! She is a very sensitive bunny, so loud noises and quick movements make her a little nervous. She is comfortable being picked up but will squirm without warning; so the person should be experienced if doing so. Fergie has made friends with a foster hamster and is in the process of getting to know a few foster kitties also.
Words cannot express what a very special bunny Fergie is… Rabbit Rescue had her vetted, spayed, and treated for fleas. She is ready to find her forever home. Who ever gets this bunny will be very lucky!
Lemon is 2.5 months old and was an owner surrender along with her siblings and mom. Lemon is a very energetic little girl. She loves to take naps, climb the walls of the cage,and run on her hamster wheel. She has a very healthy appetite, loves to eat her food while she sits in her bowl. She is good being handled and is friendly.
Merida was surrendered to us on June 23rd 2017. She is the mom Ryder, Shy,
Parker, Forest, Lamby, Sim, Lemon and Rain. Shes a bit shy but warms up
quickly. More info and photos to come soon!
From her foster mom:
Merida is a hamster on the move, she refuses to sit still! She’s definitely interested in her exercise time. She quite enjoys her hamster ball, and loves to run around the whole room!
On July 1st 2017, she gave birth to babies. Her owners must have put her with a male before surrendering to us. We will be seeking foster homes for her babies once weaned.
Parker is an energetic little guy – he enjoys countless hours in his new ‘vehicle’ (a streamlined crystal blue Run-About Ball)! Like all little ones – he has to be asked twice to stop for something to eat.
When Parker has a particular destination in mind, there is nothing that stops him; not even his buddies – a couple of Foster cats and a Foster rabbit. Parker just picks up the speed and heads straight for them! They all know to move out of Parker’s way and head for higher ground.
When Parker isn’t booting around in his ‘ride’, he divides his time between reengineering his fortress and having a couple jogs on his ‘Silent Spinner’ wheel…
Parker prefers to mound his bedding under his fortress in order to ‘jack it up’. He very consistently ensures that the end result has his igloo on an 30 degree angle! If you leave his igloo level after cleaning out his home, he will ensure that it is back on the particular angle of his choice.
Parker is fine with being handled, but he has more important things to do besides stopping for a cuddle. He is a man on mission…
