Han

Another one of our Star Wars youngsters: Han.  He’s an outgoing, active guy, loves zooming around his universe!

Like his brothers he’s a dwarf cross and has an endearing personality.  These bunnies were socialized with children, and are at present in a foster home with respectful dogs.

I’m sure Han would like a friend or to possibly go with one of his brothers. If you are interested in adopting Han, please fill in our adoption application form here.

Lando

Lando is one of our young Star Wars boys. Four brothers came to the shelter as tiny babies on their own and were brought up in one of our foster homes.

Lando is a young active boy that likes to keep busy and would most likely make a good agility rabbit. He could possibly go with a brother or be bonded to another.  He’s a good natured rabbit and would be good in a home with respectful children. Lando and his brothers are currently in a foster home with dogs.

Nugget and Muffin

Nugget (dark-grey) and Muffin (tan-grey) are fighters. Rescued as babies from a hail storm that their nine siblings tragically didn’t survive, it’s no wonder they’re absolutely inseparable. Friendly and playful, they will happily boop you to let you know who’s boss (in the most loving way) and most of the time you can find them cuddling and grooming each other or lounging out around your home like bunny baguettes.

These confident girls are very forward and willing to tell you what’s on her mind. If they’re unhappy with something, they will proudly stomp their feet in protest. This is a great feature because one is able to easily see their likes and dislikes and make adjustments accordingly. For example, coaxing them back into their enclosure for bedtime despite a full day of free-roam play will result in a thump 9/10 times. Fortunately they are very food-motivated which makes them easily persuaded.

Given their rough start and justifiable distrust of humans, it’s truly incredible how far they’ve come. Nugget will let you pet her when she’s lounging about, and Muffin has zero hesitation to hop up on the couch and leap onto your lap! Muffin is not too keen on pets but she’s slowly warming up to them! Both bunnies have perfect litter skills, always doing #1 in their litter box, and leaving minimal stray #2s around their enclosure.

We can’t wait for them to find their perfect home to give them all the love and attention that they deserve. For those looking to scoop these sweeties up, please be able to provide lots of fresh veggies (their favourite) and a big space that they can call their own. In addition to, of course, a lifetime of love!

Nugget and Muffins’ foster parents have an Instagram account they update frequently with photos and videos: https://instagram.com/rescuebunsvancouver

Skye

My name’s Skye! Check out my beautiful blue eyes. My sisters and I were found in a Dairy Queen parking lot in Richmond, we were only about 4 weeks old. We didn’t even get a banana split before being dumped, who does that?! My estimated DOB March 23, 2022. I have a clean bill of health, spayed and vaccinated. I’m great with my litter box. I was raised in a foster home with kids so I’m open to meeting respectful children. I enjoy playing with toys & doing binkies and zoomies. I’ll need space for that. I can be a bit shy at first but I’m very sweet and enjoy attention. I love banana & apple oxbow treats, yummy. I’m looking for a forever home to call my own. I might be open to meeting a male bunny but I’m happy to be your only and #1 fur baby. Can’t wait to meet you, please apply to meet me today!

Olive and Brutus

Olive and Brutus are a lovely pair of bonded bunnies who are looking for their forever home!

Both rabbits are Netherland dwarfs, 3 years old, spayed/neutered. They received vaccinations for RHDV2 (hemorrhagic disease) as well as other vaccines / dewormings that would be recommended by the vet.

The white rabbit is the female. Her name is Olive. The male rabbit is the one with the black markings. His name is Brutus. Brutus is slightly younger than Olive, maybe by 3 months or so. He is playful, friendly and cautious. Olive is more exploratory and when exposed to a new environment Olive will be the one who goes out and explores seems to be like the mommy rabbit. Both rabbits seem to be exceptionally curious and super cute and lovely. They are both litter trained and will go in their litter box almost always. The bunnies are bonded and inseparable. If one rabbit goes to the vet, the other one comes along for support.

Their diet consists of 3 pieces of romaine lettuce per day, unlimited timothy hay and about ¼ cup of pellets each per day. The bunnies get occasional treats of small carrot slices, strawberry slices and the like, but sparingly.

Jasper

Hi, I’m Jasper (female)! I have been with VRRA since I was a young baby. My sisters and I were found in a Dairy Queen parking lot in Richmond when we were only about 4 weeks old. My estimated DOB is March 23, 2022. I have a clean bill of health, and am spayed and vaccinated. I’m good with my litter box and can’t wait to find a furever home & loving family.

I was raised in a foster home with kids, so as long as your kids are respectful towards pets, I’m happy to meet them. I enjoy playing with toys, free roaming and sometimes just stretching out and relaxing. I try to keep fit by doing yoga poses, binkies and zoomies, I’ll need space for that. As for my job, it’s looking cute and putting a smile on your face! I’m looking for a forever home and people to call my own. I might be open to meeting a male bunny but he’d have to be the right fit. This queen isn’t settling for anything less than perfect. If you think I’m cute and the right fit for your home, please apply to meet me!

Lilac

Lilac is a medium large rabbit, about a year old. She came from an outdoor living situation and has 7 beautiful babies that are also needing homes.

Lilac is a friendly and energetic bunny. She loves to play, especially when there’s treats involved. While she can be penned in when needed, she loved to snuffle around and explore every inch of her surroundings, just watch out for your cords! If the weather is nice she’ll lie out in the shade for hours.

In the evening she’ll cozy up next to you or in your lap and loves it when you scratch along her back and between her ears.

She can be a bit distrusting and needs a little more training not to chew things, but she is a very sweet and loving girl, who will return your affection over time. In the second picture you can see the heart shape she has in her fur!

Smudge & Oriel

Smudge is a cute, black dwarf lion head bunny.  He is the softest bunny ever!  He’s approx 6 1/2 yrs old. He’s curious, playful and knows his name is Smudge. He is fine to be held and stroked for a little while but likes to explore and be with Oriel most of the time. He’s very friendly and will follow you around. 

Oriel is a golden tan half Rex about 5 1/2 yrs old. She is a gentle bunny, easy to handle. Oriel has become very overweight and needs someone to watch her diet and make sure she gets lots of exercise. They will be good companion rabbits. Smudge and Oriel need a home with an experienced rabbit owner, and would not be suited to a home with children, as Smudge can be quite territorial.

If you are interested in adopting Smudge and Oriel, please fill in our adoption application form here.

Notes from their current foster:

Smudge and Oriel are the best couple that you will ever have as a bunny lover. If it wasn’t for my husband’s allergy to hay, I’d love to keep them for the rest of their life. Oriel is a cute round bun that was a bit shy at the beginning of arriving at her new home. She got adapted to the environment from the second week on and she would come out to explore our dining room. Compared to Smudge, Oriel is the calmer one, if you like some quiet time of your own, she’d definitely be your best company.

Smudge is a little power generator – we call him “little bull”! He’s always full of energy. If you like dogs, Smudge is on the same level of a little puppy who will chase you wherever you go. He got used to a new home very easily. We have a fully fenced backyard with a patio and lawn behind. Once in a while I would let Smudge free run at the patio where I called “Free Buffet for the Bunnies” and leave the door a little bit open. He always came back to the house by himself, if not, I simply made a “tic, tic, tic” sound, and that would bring him back to where I was immediately. We’ve grown lots of vegetables on our patio. Their favorites are mustard leaves, dill, red leaf amaranth, cilantro, kale, and green leaf part of a cauliflower. Smudge also eats sunflower leaves, basil leaves, peppermint, and shiso leaves. Oriel loves the flower part of the veggies. We also made sure that they ate lots of hay.

Some notes for prospective owners: they do chew cables when they are bored or out of your sight, so make sure you put the cables out of reach or install protections. I put bamboo sticks and timothy sticks for them in the pen, and they would chew them. Smudge runs very fast near you even though he’s so small, so please make sure while walking, don’t step on him. Smudge bites whatever comes nearby without sniffing so just make sure you let him know when entering his territory (which can be inside the X pens or the spot you put him with Oriel together) don’t try to pet him or show him your hands until he calms down. If you need to hold him, make sure you hold him well because once you start lowering him down on the floor, he will try to escape and he might scratch you.

Oriel is a very special girl so you need to give her more time to get to know you and her new home. She didn’t move much at the beginning when we first got her. She became more active when we put her in the X pen out on our lawn late in the afternoon. She looks calm but that doesn’t mean she’s not scared, so try to be patient with her. Hold her gently if you need to. And she will let you put her down without panic.

We only kept them for 2 weeks though they already brought us great joy especially when they got more outgoing and comfortable around us. I’m sure you’re going to find out more by spending more time with them.

Hydro

Hydro is a very relaxed and well-behaved bunny that is happy to be lounging around in his favourite spot. He also loves to explore, is friendly with people and will come to sit with you while you are working or lying down.

He is always excited to get treats and attention and will follow you around right under your feet if he thinks you’re going for food. Clean and good with litterbox.”

He got his name because he was abandoned near a large hydro installation.

Nathan

Handsome Nathan is a guy with a past.  He was first abandoned at a wildlife rehabilitation centre.  Then he made his way to Vancouver Rabbit Rescue.

He is a very, happy, curious boy .  He knows how to relax once he’s finished running laps.  He’s a busy boy and will make a great companion rabbit.

Nathan did get into a fight with another boy rabbit and lost.  He was left with a torn ear which we think gives him a rakish look.
