Mark your calendars, October 10th. Rabbit Agility Show too!
VRRA is now also taking online donations through CHIMP as can be seen by the addition to the right sidebar of our site pages. The advantage of donating this way is that CHIMP issues a tax receipt immediately for the amount of the donation and charges VRRA a smaller fee for its services than does PayPal. Try it out – it’s easy to use.
The Vancouver Rabbit Agility Club .
Meets every Saturday afternoon from 12:00 to 3:00 at the Vancouver SPCA. To learn about the activities of this club that is fun for both their rabbit trainers and the rabbits that are learning how to navigate an agility course, visit their website.
We recently received 4 disabled baby rabbits and their momma. Each little baby, about 3 weeks old, has lost their front paws and a few toes from their hind feet. It is very sad but these little bunnies do not feel sorry for themselves. They hop and play like regular rabbits. If you did not examine them you would not know of their injuries. However, as they get older and heavier there will be big problems with them putting pressure on the stumps of their front legs. Therefore we are working on designing jackets for them to solve this problem. We gratefully accept donations towards their care and have high hopes for them to have long and happy lives.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. We especially need help to keep the facility clean. This mainly involves keeping their cages clean so that our bunnies enjoy healthy lives. The cleaning consists of replacing used litter, newspaper, towels, sweeping and changing water. We normally need a person for 2 or 3 hours in the morning and afternoon. This is not a dirty smelly job because the cleaning is done every day so that there no chance for a buildup of dirt and odour. We also need people who can handle bunnies so they can be moved from their inside cages to outdoor exercise pens. To volunteer please submit this form.
