Rabbit Festival went well; lots of bunny people. Thanks so much to everyone who came, donated and joined in. And a big thank you to all volunteers who made it possible.

Broken Bunny Fund:

 

Meeka is a Dutch rabbit that was found abandoned outside. She was picked up by a good samaritan and taken to a veterinary clinic. The clinic treated her and then contacted VRRA about finding a place for her. Meeka is a friendly girl who has been very seriously neglected. She only has partial use of her hind legs and has been lying in her own urine for quite some time. The urine burns on her skin are extensive. She was being eaten by fly maggots (fly strike) when she came to the clinic so it was very lucky she was found and treated quickly. The maggots introduce toxins to the blood so it is essential for an animal with fly strike to be cleaned and treated with antibiotics.

 

 

Meeka

 

Although her hind legs don’t work well, Meeka is upbeat and very active. She eats very well and is curious about her surroundings and very responsive. Her skin is healing and she is not in pain. X-rays show all her bones are ok.

 

 

 

 

 

Bunny Wheelchair

 

We have tried her in a cart made for another rabbit and she does very well. A generous donor wants to buy her a new, lighter one of her own so her future looks good. Meeka will always need care and requires special bedding and on going veterinary attention so donations are much appreciated.

 

 

 

 

Adopting a Bunny:

If you are interested in adopting a bunny go to the Adoption Info page, read the introductory material and then complete and submit the adoption application form. We will then contact you to set up an appointment to visit our shelter and meet the bunnies that are available for adoption.

Volunteer at VRRA:

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. We especially need help in keeping our shelter clean. This mainly involves keeping their cages and outside exercise pens clean so that our bunnies enjoy happy and healthy lives. We also need people who can handle bunnies so they can be moved from their inside cages to outdoor exercise pens. Most cleaners learn to do this as well. If you would like to volunteer please submit this form.
