2021 Calendar!

VRRA has received a limited supply of the official House Rabbit Society 2021 calendar. Available for in-person purchase ($15) from the VRRA store.

Holiday Fundraiser!

🎄🐇 Happy holidays to our vibrant rabbit community! 🐇🎄

With the cancellation of our annual Rabbit Festival this year (due to Covid 19), the need to cover our veterinary expenses is greater than ever. We are therefore holding a Super Raffle to help raise funds and have seven incredible gift baskets available! The proceeds of this raffle will benefit VRRA’s Broken Bunny Fund. This is the main source of income for the veterinary care every rabbit receives in our rescue.

Tickets for the raffle are $6 each, or four for $20. There is no limit on ticket purchases; the more you buy, the greater your chances of winning! 

There are seven baskets up for grabs, each with a variety of rabbit goodies (for people AND bunnies!), coffee, teas, presses, toys, treats, ornaments and more! Baskets and contents were very generously donated by VRRA team members, Feathered Addictions Bird Supplies, and Pets-N-Us, so every single dollar donated directly benefits the bunnies!

How to buy tickets: E-transfers may be sent to petsnusfundraiservrra@gmail.com.  Please include your name, phone contact, location in the Greater Vancouver area and the number of tickets you wish to purchase with your entry! 

Because of logistics, we are limiting raffle entries to the Lower Mainland area of BC. Of course, we will gratefully welcome any non-raffle donations made from out of town! Baskets are on view at Pets-N-Us’s Tsawwassen location. Ticket purchase deadline is December 16th at 10pm PST. Winners will be announced December 18th!

Please help us help homeless rabbits. Thank you for whatever you may be able to contribute; any amount counts!

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!
