Binky

BinkyPROFILE

Binky is a wonderful, handsome bunny.  He likes being near people and hop over to greet you.  He lives large in everything he does, from exploring, to binkies to flops.  He is a curious boy, and brave, and will boldly hop over to anything that catches his interest.  After exploring, binkying or having grabbed a hay snack, he will stretch out fully content.  This is the perfect time for cuddles, and he will melt into the floor in complete bliss.  He loves a good chew toy, apple branches or sisal toys are his favourites.  His litter habits are fantastic, other than the odd stray poop.  He doesn’t mind being picked up, but gets a little nervous if you move too quickly while carrying him.  He loves hay, and rarely turns down any type of greens or treat.  He would prefer to be free range, but would also do well with a large pen and lots of exercise time. Binky is one of the 103 rabbits we rescued Aug. 2016. At that time he was aprox 3 months old.

URGENT FOSTER – Lulu

LuLuPROFILE

Lulu is a very curious and pretty girl (check out those eye lashes!). She loves and needs lots of stimulation. She enjoys pets and mild cuddling as long as it is not interrupting her exploring time. Her binkies are the funniest thing because she’s a little clumsy and uncoordinated. She is OK with being picked up only when necessary and when it is done properly. She is very routined and must have some pellets in her toy ball to play every night before bed – she will remind you if you forget. Lulu eats like a champion and loves hay, pellets, and all types of greens (parsley, kale, dill, cilantro, etc.)

URGENT FOSTER – Ethyl & Ainslee

EthylAinsleePROFILE

Ethel (grey dwarf bunny) and Ainsworth (white Lionhead dwarf bunny) are a much-loved three to four-year-old bonded pair being put up for adoption only because their owner can no longer care for them for health reasons. They must be adopted together. They are both bunnies of great character. Ainsworth was rescued from a farm petting zoo, Ethel came from Rabbit Rescue originally as one of the 2014 Sudbury bunnies. Given Ainsworth’s petting-zoo background, he is quite calm and laid back about being picked up and cuddled, although he does give a definite thump of his feet once he is put back in his cage, just to prove his independence. Despite her small size, Ethel is feistier and doesn’t enjoy being picked up, but she looks out for and comes for her treats every evening. In addition to daily hay and rabbit pellets, Ethel loves blueberries, a little bit of banana, and sometimes a small scattering of oats. Ainsworth is less responsive to treats; he is generally just an all-round pretty mellow fellow. They both seem to enjoy strokes behind the ears. They do have a cage but they both love sitting on their cat-bed which is too high for cage size, so they normally live surrounded by a low fence. They are spayed and neutered. Ainsworth is in good health; Ethel recently had a slight ear infection and a molar filing on two upper molars but has come through fine.  They are a really lovely pair of bunnies, whose owner will shed more than a few tears at having to let them go but knows that they will be much-loved in their new home.  Contact us today to adopt them!

Marshmallow & Choco

NoSmallPetsAvailable

Marshmallow and Choco are bonded and must be adopted together.  They came to us as a rescue from another province.

Marshmallow (taupe, red eyes): He is very energetic, loves to run around the cage, the wheel and the ball. He lets me feed him treats such as cucumbers and alfalfa cubes but otherwise is very nippy and bites quite hard. Marshmallow is also extremely curious and will come out of his house as soon as he hears someone fiddling with the cage. Otherwise, he mostly sleeps all day and comes out during the evening. He seems to be very engaging and playful.

Choco (dark grey, black eyes): He is definitely the larger of the two hammies and seems to be a bit friendlier. Although he tries to nibble, he hasn’t bit yet. Choco is out and about more than marshmallow during the day and comes out during the night as well. He loves to approach my hands and is eager to receive treats. Really likes fresh vegetables and will bring them into his home for later if he can’t finish it all.

Speedy & Pearl

NoSmallPetsAvailable

Pearl (light grey). She’s very energetic, and loves to run around in the wheel and ball. If I’m standing while she is in the ball she will gravitate towards me and lean against my leg. Likes to be held, will cuddle in my hands for a few seconds, but mostly prefers to run around. Very mellow. Loves fresh veg, especially cucumber. Will nibble at my finger sometimes, but not bite. And she’s definitely the bigger of the two.

Speedy (dark grey). She’s therefore a little mischievous and energetic. Runs around none stop, making it difficult to get a good picture. Loves to hoard food, as I often see her cheeks stuffed with food. Will nibble at fresh veg, but isn’t too interested. Likes to be held, chill in your hands for a few seconds, but mostly likes to run around. She’s definitely the alpha of the two, and tends to be the aggressor when they fight. Loves to run around in the ball, and will happily do so for 30 min without taking breaks. And she also loves to climb the wires of the cage and then fall/jump down. Very intelligent, demonstrated by the ways she managed to escape from the cage.

Mr D was one of 103 rabbits seized after being raised in very inhumane conditions while being raised for meat. He is aprox 11 months (as of May 2017) and has been neutered. More info to come as his foster family gets to know him!

Penelope

PenelopeProfile

Penelope (Penny) is a very curious, high energy young bun. She loves having a lot of space to run around but also spends a lot of time taking naps. All fruits and veggies seem to be delicious, and she eats a LOT of hay which is wonderful! Must be fed twice a day – she would eat a day’s worth of food in one sitting. Did not get along very well with a timid bunny, but previously lived around other animals and they got along well. Prefers to have some traction on the ground – ie a blanket etc on the ground, not hardwood. She would make a great pet for a family with older/no children, and no other pets.PennyCollage

Button

ButtonProfile

Hi – I am Button.  I have decided to write my own Bio.  That is just how I role…

I would like to start by saying that I am a girl – because ‘Button’ doesn’t adequately express this important fact.  Although I appreciate the sentiment behind how I got this name – “oh my, she is cute as a button!”, “oh my, she has a cute button nose!” – I rather thought that Beyonce would have been more appropriate.  Just my gorgeous full bodied head of hair alone screams diva!  But I am not bitter.

Rabbit Rescue had me spayed and health checked in April 2017 and Im healthy!  I was dumped outside by my owner and caught by a RR volunteer thank goodness!

It is not spite that causes me to nudge people out of my way or give them sideways glances when they are messing up my beautiful long locks with hands that I clearly did not witness them washing; it is my stature.

That being said, I’ll admit to getting a little mileage out of putting on airs and graces.  The more I do it, the more my foster parents go out of their way to cater to my every whim.  Although I make a point of being ‘hot and cold’ when they are crouched above me while stroking me, I reward them when they get on the floor and lay at eye level by grooming their hair and nuzzling their cheeks.

They get such a kick out of it, that they don’t even notice when I am going around and rubbing my scent all over them! Ha!  You’re mine now!

Sometimes I forget my strategy and do cute little bunny things, like flops and binkies; although I usually recover my dignity fairly quickly.  Well, except for at desert time…  The other day I got my usual favourite – smooshed fresh banana.  This alone affords my foster parents a couple of binkies; just to keep them on side. But then Foster Sue went above and beyond and, consequently, so did I!

My foster mom sat down on the floor (like I have trained her to do) with my bag of Oxbow Oat Hay; she does this thing where she reaches into the bag and finds the shoots of oat seeds.  On this particular day, the bag was almost empty and there didn’t seem to be any shoots left.  I was totally ready to unleash some attitude like the world has never witnessed when she proceeded to put a handful of loose bits into a bowl which she began sorting.  At first, it wasn’t apparent what she was doing until she extended her arm with a little offering; an individual oat seed.

The thought occurred to me to make her feel bad for such a measly offering, like grunt and walk away, but I chose to take the seed and just stare at her; I was going for the “is that all you have to offer me!” look.  Foster mom proceeded to sort out individual seeds, and I proceeded to take them.  Before I knew it, with every seed I got, I did a small ‘Indy 500’ quickly followed by a tight and precise binky.  This went on seed after seed.  I don’t quite know what got into me that day…  I like to blame it on the sugar.  This is a true story.
