Bandit

Bandit is a small, silky-black rabbit with deep brown eyes. He is a traumatized little one, having been abandoned on a golf course. He is understandably shy and needs an understanding home to draw him out of his shell.

Esser

Esser

Esser is an outgoing young bunny. His Mom was discovered in a bag inside a box that was in a DUMPSTER downtown. She had babies shortly after being rescued; Esser and his siblings were lucky to be reared in one of our loving foster homes. He is now a neutered and ready for adoption – he’s anxious to get out of his shelter cage and back into a house routine with committed humans for the rest of his life (10+ years).

Esser will do best in a rabbit-experienced home as he is opinionated and can sometimes nip. We expect this may come from frustration of being cooped up in a shelter cage. As he matures and has better opportunity to run around and exercise – as well as live with humans who know and understand him – we expect he’ll flower into a lovely young man.

The video shows Esser hanging with his siblings.

Alfie, Alan, Alma and Amos

Alfie, Alan, Alma and Amos

 

Special rabbits for special people. These sibling (one sister and 3 brothers) lost their front feet to a predator when they were small babies. The most likely scenario is that they were kept on wire and that something bit their little feet off from below. Alfie, Alma, Alan and Amos do not know that they are different. They love each other as the photo shows. Alfie and Amos get around so you wouldn’t notice they were different. Alan and Alma have slightly more trouble as they lost a little more leg. But they all behave as normal rabbits and are  doing very well. It is, of course, important that they are kept on surfaces that will not hurt their legs but this is not a difficult thing to do and they use their litter boxes well. All are in good health and are good hay eaters. It would be wonderful if they could find a loving foster home together. Everything could be provided. Only love needs to be added.

Snowy & Korina

Korina

This is Mr Snowy (grey fur) and Ms Korina (tan coat), who are best friends and love to play together. They are interesting and outgoing bunnies. Sweet Korina received an injury to her back by a thoughtless human that resulted in some minor nerve damage. This doesn’t affect her quality of life but does mean that she has some mild incontinence. Having an easily washable rug (check out Ruggables ) for their home base will make this issue very easy to deal with.

Kanga and Roo

Kanga Roo

Did you know that dark-furred pets have a really hard time finding homes? Studies have shown that they’re the last to be adopted and the first to be euthanized (please note that VRRA is a no-kill shelter). They suffer from all kinds of silly myths, superstitions and stigmas. As well, they are difficult to photograph and in our visually-obsessed world, that’s a tough strike against them.

Our two Black Beauties shown here are Kanga & Roo, and they’d like a chance to dispel your bad luck fears! They owe their lives to a kind person who rescued them from behind a dumpster in a parking garage when they were about 2 weeks old. How’s that for good luck?! Thanks to those kind people they have grown into a fun brother-sister duo, who are very dashing looking with their sleek and shiny black fur.

They’ve lived at the shelter their whole lives and so need people who will give them a chance to relax and time to get un-institutionalized. Pets that have spent a long time in shelters sometimes take a bit of time for their personalities to fully flower once they are freed of life in a cage.
