It’s Rabbit Festival Time!

We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday, October 27th at the Scottish Cultural Centre for our 14th Annual Rabbit Festival!  We are happy to have House Rabbit Society Director, Anne Martin, as our guest who will speak on Rabbit Health Issues.  We’ll also have lots of fun watching the bunny athletes competing with the Vancouver Rabbit Agility Club! Vets will be providing bun check-ups by donation, and we’ll also have grooming and nail clipping services available. Lots of rabbit information will be shared and there will be fun with raffles and contests.  Come and support VRRA!

We will be able to vaccinate up to 20 rabbits at Rabbit Festival this year!  Requirements: The rabbit needs to be at least 10 weeks old, to have been with you for minimum 2 weeks, to have been kept indoors and be in good health. The vaccine will cost $45 and the exam requires a minimum $10 donation. If you wish to have your rabbit vaccinated, sign up soon as possible when you arrive at the Festival (first come, first served). Please remember that we take cash or cheques but no debit or credit cards.

Broken Bunny Fund

Alfie, Alan, Alma and Amos

Meet Alfie, Alma, Alan and Amos – the 4A’s. These young siblings are Special Rabbits; they lost their front feet when they were small babies. We are not certain of the circumstances but the most likely scenario is that they were kept in a wire-floor cage outdoors, and that something bit their front feet off from below.

Although this tragic event has left them disabled, these wonderful rabbits do not know they are different. They are happy and quite mobile, as the video shows. Alfie and Amos get around almost without any noticeable impediment while Alan and Alma have a bit more trouble as they lost a little more of their leg.

No front feet doesn’t mean no fun!

All four of the A’s are doing very well. The main special care they require is that they must live with a soft rug surface that will not hurt the stumps of their legs.  Although these lovely rabbits are eager to live full lives despite their disability, the reality is that it’s difficult to find an adoptive home willing to take on handicapped pets.  VRRA is committed to providing for their lifelong care and so donations are appreciated to help us do so. We still hope to find special people willing to foster our wonderful A’s, as they deserve the attention and love that can only be found in a home environment.  VRRA would continue to provide for their needs in foster care.

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, find out more by completing this form.
