Buffy

Dear, sweet Buffy finds herself at the shelter after 8 years of house-rabbit living – her family abandoned her when they moved. She is an endearingly sweet, lovely rabbit with clean and tidy habits. Bunnies can live ~12 years and so Buffy is entering her senior years.

Upper-middle-aged buns are wonderful pets for people looking for a settled companion. Buffy sometimes gets sharp edges on her teeth that require a trip to the bunny vet for a filing treatment (this isn’t an uncommon problem). She just had a visit with our vet to get this looked after so she’s a healthy and happy girl now.  Buffy has relatively small ears for her size, which gives her face a very cute, unique look.

Hawthorn and Cedar

Cedar and Hawthorn

Aren’t Cedar & Hawthorn the cutest?? As you can see from the photo, these sisters are two peas-in-a-pod and love to snuggle together, making for endless adorable photos.  They are Holland Lop/Lionhead crosses, with Hawthorn having dark tones and the longer Lionhead fur, while Cedar has lighter colouring and the more traditional Holland Lop look.  They are young adults, which means that they have long lives ahead of them, but have matured beyond the ‘messy untrained baby bun’ stage. They are outgoing and love to dash about and socialize. Their foster home reports that they are good with their litter box and are excellent hay eaters (that equates to healthy bun-buns). They are lovely girls who have received great House Rabbit training in their foster home, and are ready to graduate to a Forever Home.

This is Karen, a dear little bunny who is very lucky to be alive and safe. She was put in a bag and thrown out of car in a Vancouver neighbourhood. Luckily a kind person saw this happen and went over to the bag to investigate. Thank goodness for Good Samaritans. Despite the cruelty she’s endured, she is a happy and inquisitive rabbit, eager to socialize and have a kind hand stroke her head.

Karen has matured into a super-smart bunny! She is curious and eager for lots of socialization and conversation! Her adoptive humans will need to be prepared for a little creature that expects to be involved in their daily lives. Karen will not be content to just sit in a pen with nothing to do. She would probably do well with clicker training or rabbit agility.

Dear Sybil. Just like dark-furred cats and dogs, rabbits with black colouring are often passed over by adopters in favour of rabbits with light colouring.  It is a very sad thing.

Personally we love dark-toned bunnies because in a city like Vancouver where black clothes are popular, you never have to worry about their shedding fur being noticeable on your shirt or pants 🙂

Sybil was surrendered to the shelter along with her brother, Branson, who has since passed away. This beautiful gal could really use a break and we hope that someone will give her the chance she deserves. She is an opinionated and intelligent rabbit.
