Every bunny is worthy of love.

This is SO TRUE. If you are searching for a rabbit to adopt, please keep an open mind – bunnies blossom in a home. It makes such a difference to them. Colour, looks, age – none of those things make a difference.

Every bunny is worthy of love.

April 21, 2019 Easter Sunday BUNNY BUNANZA event!

Mark your calendars for the upcoming BUNNY BUNANZA!
We are co-hosting an Easter Sunday event with Rabbitats Rescue.

Sunday, April 21
Noon to 3:30pm
Ukrainian Hall, 805 E Pender in Vancouver.

There will be “Hoppy Hour” for rabbit owners and their buns, and also a “Bunny Meet and Treat” for people interested in learning about having a rabbit pet. Bunnies from both VRRA and Rabbitats will be there to meet you.

There will also be an agility demonstration to show how rabbits train for agility competition which is surprisingly easy. 

Entrance by donation for an afternoon of bunny-positive fun. Snacks and treats available as well as interesting objects for sale. So come have a hoppy afternoon!

We hope people take this great opportunity to educate themselves about how to be committed and informed bunny guardians and this can help turn the tide against impulsive rabbit purchases at Easter.

Foster a Baby Bunny!

These cute baby bun-buns are in need of FOSTER HOMES so they can spend their pre-adoptive formative months growing up with compassionate, responsible people who can mentor them into becoming good House Rabbits. Once they are old enough for spay/neuter, they’ll then be ready for adoption.

Fostering young rabbits is an important way to help animals in need! It’s also a great opportunity to have a rabbit without committing to a lifetime of care.  INTERESTED? Please go to our foster/adoption page and email us the foster application form. We look forward to hearing from you!

Rabbit Festival 2011 Video

Rabbit Festival 2011

Another Rabbit Festival and another success. Thanks so much to all the dedicated volunteers. A special thanks to Jennifer who sold so many raffle tickets. Big thanks to our 3 veterinarians who donated their time and expertise away from their own clinics: Dr. Sarah Ruack, Dr. Joseph Martinez and Dr. Uri Burnstyn. The talented Wheata did most of her tricks under stressful conditions. Many bunnies were stars in their own right just by being so adorable. The Bunny 500 race through the “bunnel” was a load of laughs. Several rabbits went to the middle and sat down, some reversed and ran the wrong way. The winner, Herman, did 8 feet in 5 seconds. Photos of the festival can be viewed at http://www.flickr.com/photos/26499362@N04/ and there is video to come. Thanks again to everyone who helped and I already can’t wait for next year.

Rabbit Festival, Oct 8th at WISE Hall

Rabbit Festival is Saturday, Oct 8th at WISE Hall, Adanac and Victoria Dr., from noon until 4 pm. We will have three veterinarians for health check ups by donation as well as nail clipping and grooming. Lots of bunny information, prizes, games, contests and fun. And Wheata the Wonder Wabbit will be doing her tricks. Hope to see lots of you there.
