Audrey Hopburn

Audrey HopBun is one of the 103 we saved in Aug 2016. She came to us after being raised for meat and kept in such bad conditions the SPCA had to remove all of them.

Audrey is a very inquisitive and bright little bunny who loves to play with toys and enjoys being petted! She is trying her best to be friends with our cats and seems to be winning them over with her playful attitude. It’s impossible to be anything but happy with her bright little self around!

She is energetic, very bright, playful! Likes to hop after our cats, enjoys exploring. Good at getting out of pen, had to make Bunny Alcatraz, but also seems to be easily occupied with toys. She is a great eater, loves cantaloupe as a special treat and promised to be your very best friend if you adopt her!

OSPCA euthanizes rabbit with ‘forever’ home waiting

Biscola___Super_Portrait

A bunny left in the Orangeville OSPCA’s care has been euthanized even though the director of a rabbit rescue agency says a permanent home had been secured for her.

“It is so tragically unfair. This bunny was saved, only to be euthanized,” argued Haviva Porter-Lush, executive director of the Rabbit Rescue based in Cambridge. “They knew we had a confirmed spot, a permanent place where she would get the care she needed forever.”

Eleven rescued rabbits in need of a home

bunny1web___Super_Portrait

A Cambridge woman who helped rescue more than 70 rabbits from “deplorable” living conditions last summer is still working to find homes for 11 bunnies.

Haviva Porter-Lush, who founded the Cambridge-based Rabbit Rescue foundation more than 15 years ago, successfully located foster and adoptive families for nearly all of the rabbits seized from a Peterborough facility, which raised them for meat in unacceptable conditions.

DJ

DJ-PROFILE

DJ is one of Gia’s babies. Gis came to us as part of the “103” rescue after she was removed from a place where all the rabbits were being bred for mea tand they were kept in such horrible conditions that it was illegal.

 DJ is an extremely playful, young bunny that’s very easy to love. She makes friends quickly with both animals and other people. DJ will approach someone as they enter the room and likes to lie down next to you. She can hop around the room extremely fast when she is happy, will binky and even roll over for pets, especially after receiving treats. She loves her tunnel to run through and to hop on and chase ping pong balls around her playpen. Also, she is not afraid of loud noises such as vacuums and she is an expert at using her litter box. Her favourite spot for pets is her head, but she goes crazy for nose rubs.  She will be spayed by RR once she is 6 months old.

Rosie

rosieprofile

Rosie came to us in Aug as part of the 103 rescue. She was removed after living in deplorable conditions and being raised for meat. Rosie was spayed in Aug 2016 and has impeccable litter habits!

When Rosie is given time out of her enclosure, she is very excited – she binky’s up a storm! She also does this when she knows she is about to be fed – she jumps in place, and binky’s around her enclosure, sometimes even spilling her water from all the excitement. When out to play, she burns all her energy in the first few minutes – binkying, running around – enough so that she tires herself out, and ends up parking it for some time.  When she is in her enclosure, grooming herself, she flops onto her side – cleaning her ears, her paws – it is such a cute sight to see!!

Rosie goes straight for the magazines/newspapers when out exploring.   She really enjoys tearing them apart/shredding them. She loves to explore new areas, always leading with her ears, like antennae – she is very weary of her surroundings. With Rosie, cables have never been an issue, thankfully!

rosiecollage

Rosie has a carrier in her enclosure that she loves to sleep in, or use to hide when she is scared. When she is playing/excited, she has jumped up on the crate. Her favorite toys are:  Wooden chew toys – blocks/carrot, cardboard boxes/paper rolls, willow sticks. She also does well with friendly cats.

Rosie loves to race around the room (carpeted) when she first comes out of her enclosure – binkying. When she flops over for a nap– she flops almost fully on her back (belly side up), and eventually ends up on her side – cleaning her ears and her paws – a sight to see!

Rosie is such a sweet “little” bunny. She will do really well in a home with other pets – preferably cats. She follows the cat  in her foster family wherever she goes, but will not jump up on furniture when the cat does so. She is very well-mannered.  Could you be her forever home?

Piper

Piper is one of Viennas babies.  Vienna came to us with her litter of babies just hours old in Aug 2016. She was seized after being raised for meat in horrible conditions

Piper a mellow bunny, who was one of the smallest in the litter but has turned out to be one of the biggest. She may even out grow her Momma, Vienna. Piper is a sweet girl who loves pets, belly rubs and snuggles. Piper is a great eater and loves her food. Piper loves to binky, flop and recieve/give kisses to her sisters or Momma.

Pepper

pepperprofile

Pepper is one of the 103 rabbits rescued from deplorable conditions.Pepper is one of Gias babies. Gia came to us as part of a large scale rescue back in Aug 2016 and Pepper was only 1 day old. Pepper still needs to be sexed, but for now we will call Pepper a girl.

She is constantly flopping; does mini binkies and loves to race around the room. She is very curious. She sits with ears alert and watches her foster mom – when she become bored, she flops down and continues to watch while relaxing. She has an “obstacle” course with a long box to run through and she really loves to run full speed through the box and “hiding” in the carrier. She also enjoys cuddle time.

peppercollage

She loves being out and being near you. You  have to be very careful when walking because, even when you think she’s on the other side of the room, she will find her way under your feet when you go to move. She jumps on everything – people, couch, boxes – and binkies continually. She’s a very loving bunny. She loves to play and loves toys.

A little story from her foster mom: Yesterday, my daughter put her cup on the floor and Pepper knocked it over.  While the water was being cleaned up, Pepper stuck her head into the cup and took off with it.  What followed was almost 30 minutes of her putting her head into the cup, walking around that way, dropping the cup, grabbing it and flipping it into the air, chasing it around the room.

She will be spayed as soon as she is old enough.

URGENT – Remi

remiprofile

Hi everyone! My name is Remington, but everyone calls me Remi! I am an outgoing female bunny with a big appetite and lots of energy! My favourite veggies include kale, parsley, carrots and broccoli but I won’t say no to any type of vegetable! I really like to run around and explore stairs and furniture, but my favourite thing is to be pet. I will stay and let you pet me for as long as you are willing! When I am outside of my x-pen, I do like to occasionally chew the carpet so make sure you keep an eye on me! Another one of my favourite things to do is to lay in my hay while I eat it, which looks really funny and cute!

I am also almost completely litter trained! I always pee in my litter box and for the most part poop in it too, except for a few which are really close to the box. This makes it really easy to clean up after me! I am also very outgoing and will always come over and say hi, even if I have never met you before! I am a really sweet and friendly bunny, and I can’t wait to find my forever home! I am being spayed Feb. 2017 as I will be old enough then.

Gia is my mom, she was rescued by RR in Aug 2016 (when I was born!) after she was saved from a horrific meat breeding operation and seized by the SPCA.  I can’t wait to start my new life with you! I Will be spayed/neutered as soon as old enough.

Gamora

gamoraprofile

Gamora is a beautiful big girl with a large personality & is one of the 70+ rabbits we took in, in Aug. 2016. Rescued from terrible living conditions she came into the Rescue a bit timid. She has quickly learned to trust the people in her foster home and is thoroughly enjoying her new-found freedom. She can be found racing about the house doing binkies and high jumps. After she has a nice big playtime she will settle in for some gentle pets
and has often fallen asleep in her fosters lap. Gamora is a very sweet girl whose young personality does require some bunny proofing but she is well worth the small extra effort.

Fluffy – URGENT

fluffyprofile

Fluffy is an adorable young rabbit who through no fault of her own is seeking an urgent foster home. She is part of the 103 that we helped rescue in Aug (taking in 70+ rabbits) after they were seized from being kept in horrible conditions and being raised for meat.

She is sweet and so soft. You will enjoy petting her as much as she loves being pet. Fluffy loves her exercise time and will race all around to explore any new space. When sitting quietly she may just nibble your toes for some attention. Her litter habits have improved greatly since being in foster care and once spayed will likely get even better.

Fluffy is a sweet heart seeking an urgent foster or adoptive home.

BONDED PAIR – Sansa & Daenery

sansadeneries

Sansa and Daenery were rescued from a horrible situation along with over 100 other rabbits. Rabbit Rescue took in 70 of these rabbits Aug 2016.  These two loved each other so much, we decided it was best for them to stay together after all the horrors they had been through.  They came in to us quite young, at aprox 2-3 months old.

Daenerys is a queen, just as her name suggests. On her nose, she even has a little gray strip like a dragon scale. She is affectionate and curious and loves to be petted and loved. She is very active and will need room to binky and run about.Daenerys is very curious and will enjoy a large space to run around with lots of toys to play with and spaces to explore. Get ready to cuddle with this one.

Sansa is a very sweet girl. She loves affection and will snuggle up to you for pets. She loves to run around and binky, but also enjoys her quiet time. Her personality leans toward the side of stoic and thoughtful. She is curious but cautious, and loves attention. Sansa would do best in a house where she can have quiet time to herself in addition to plenty of pets and affection.

They will be spayed once they are 6 months old and are looking for a loving adoptive home together. Email us if you would like more info on this lovely pair!

Olive

oliveprofile

Olive is one of the 103 rabbits seized after being raised for meat in horrible conditions.
Olive is still very unsure of people, but is quickly getting more comfortable with the people she interacts with most. She is extremely well behaved and very sweet.  Her foster  mom thinks she will make a wonderful pet and even have the potential to be mostly free range. She like to explore by sniffing instead of chewing (every bunny owner’s dream). Olive is also VERY smart and (almost too) good at communicating her needs (ex. If foster mom sleep in too late she bangs her bowl against the side of her pen until she wakes up and feeds her). She loves to explore when she is out and enjoys being around people (although is a bit nervous still). She likes to climb on people she is familiar with but is still unsure about being pet.

olivecollage
Olive has not encountered any children or dogs. She had a brief visit with one of the house cats, and generally ignored the cat until she came to close, at which point Olive told her off with a stomp. Olive loves to run around the room and binky, when she wears herself out she will flop down with her legs sticking out and relax. She will be going for her spay in January 2017.

Walter

walterwhiteprofile

Walter is a playful, curious and energetic bunny who loves to explore. He’ll hop right on over to greet you when you come home from work, and takes turns hopping to everyone in the room when he wants a treat! Bananas, apples and carrots are his treats of choice. Watch out if you’re opening the veggie drawer in the fridge because he’ll run around you in circles or prop up on his hind feet to get a closer look. Walter is litter trained and likes to keep his pen clean. He gets anxious around little children and loud noises, but loves to lounge around the living room while everyone is watching TV. He’ll also race around and jump on and off the couch or the bed until he’s tuckered out. He is guaranteed to bring nothing but joy and laughter to your household! He came from a hellish situation where he was removed by the SPCA, along with over 100 other rabbits. Rabbit Rescue stepped up to save him, neutered him and provided all medical care. Now he needs YOU to give him a forever home!

Butterscotch

butterscotchprofile

This is Butterscotch, and is a gorgeous New Zealand White. She is estimated to be around 8-9 months of age, and was spayed in August 2016. Butterscotch had a rough start to life. She was among 100 other rabbits that were seized and rescued after being kept in brutal and inhuman conditions, while being raised for meat. RR had her spayed and health checked.  Due to this, Butterscotch has had a difficult time learning to trust people. That being said, she has already made tremendous progress while being in her foster home, and she easily won over the hearts of her foster parents the second they laid eyes on her.

Butterscotch enjoys running around, and exploring her environment. To show you her excitement, she will complete a few binkies before ending it will a bunny flop. She enjoys her greens, and just adores the attention given to her while receiving head scratches. She literally just melts in your hands. She enjoys lying beside her foster mom with her head on her knee, while she completes some school work on the bed. She is a very social bunny, and will literally follow you around like a dog. She would do best with a family who is willing to be patient with her, and allow her to completely open up to them. There is nothing more rewarding, than winning over an animals love. Be prepared to fall in love with those gentle, ruby eyes.

Lulu

Lulu

Lulu was one of over 100 rabbits seized after being raised for meat in disgusting conditions. She came to us as part of “round two” of the bunnies we have been taking in, August 2016.

I love Martin’s Friends pellets, and I’m very curious about what my foster mom and dad (my loyal servants) are up to. They’re really great at petting me. More importantly, they know not to pick me up. The only time I like to have my furry paws off the floor is when I binky. I’m very jealous of their bed, it’s the perfect sprinting ground, and digging place.

I‘ve recently started going down the hall into the living room to see where they go (It took me a while to work up the courage). What a great place — so many new nooks and crannies to explore. I don’t really like to cuddle with my servants; I prefer to have complete freedom to go where I please.

lulucollage

My carrier is the only place where there are no servants allowed, but I still like my servants so I never bite.  Servants bring me pellets, hay, collard greens, dandelion leaves, bananas, carrots and parsley, so I think of them fondly.

There are certain things that I will not stand for in my kingdom, and that includes heeled shoes on hardwood floors, and when my servants come through carrying laundry baskets or large bags. These things are quite upsetting to me.

My servants now are temporary, and cannot able to keep me for much longer. I am in urgent need of a new foster home. I hope to have and am  used to, plenty of freedom to explore.

Bunny Boy

BunnyBoyPROFILE

This little Netherland Dwarf was found hopping on the side of the Canal Rd in Niagara. His nails were extremely long. He is a shy bunny but comes running to you for his treats. He likes strawberries, celery leaves and carrot tops.

He is shy to be petted but with patience he will figure out what he’s been missing. He likes sitting on and under his box and has toys to play with but only plays if you play with him. He was neutered in August 2015.

Minnie

MinnieProfile

Minnie is one of the 103 rabbits rescued in August 2016.  When she came to us she was pretty shy, and spent most of her time in her cardboard box house.  Now that she has had some time to herself, she’s a completely different bunny!  She spends her time in her pen lounging, and out of her pen running bunny 500s and binkying.  She has a great personality, a great mix of affectionate and reserved.

Minnie is not a bun to be contained or held. She is a floor bunny, and gets very distressed when picked up or confined by human arms.  Although she is a bit more reserved, she still likes to hop over to you while she’s in her pen and hunker down for some petting.

Her litter habits are pretty good, and we hope they’ll be 100% after she is spayed at 6 months.  Minnie is looking for her forever home.  After meeting her, she is sure to hop into your hearts.
