Pepe

It was difficult to get photos of Pepe because he’s got things to do and places to go! He’s a fun-bun who doesn’t have time to sit still, there’s too many things to explore. He’s a young guy, probably not quite one year old. His a handsome mini-lionhead and will make a fun and interesting companion.

Chance

Chance is getting a second-chance at life at VRRA, after being saved from a backyard breeder (puleeze adopt-don’t-shop, buying pets from places like Craigslist not only poses a high risk of a bad experience, but also feeds an appalling side of the pet industry and encourages backyard breeders to stay in business).

Chance is part Californian Rabbit which is a breed known for their beautiful coat, distinctive markings and nice personality.  Chance has all of these in spades!  He is sweet and friendly, and hopeful to find a Forever Home where he can live the House Rabbit lifestyle that he’s never yet experienced. We’re so happy to give him that opportunity.

Hayden

Hayden

Handsome Hayden found himself at a local wildlife rescue centre, which is no place for a domestic bunny! Fortunately he was transferred to VRRA, where he’s now looking for his Forever Home as a beautiful House Rabbit. Hayden will require an experienced and patient bunny person to help him overcome some suspected trauma in his past; currently he is having issues with fear biting. We expect this will go away once he can be freed from living in a shelter cage and has room to run and has time to learn to trust his adopted human.

Parker

Parker

Introducing Parker, a friendly young dude found wandering alone in a parkade at UBC. He is social, likes being pet, and looks forward to becoming a responsible human’s BFF – remember that last “F” stand for FOREVER. Bunnies live 10-12 years and need commitment from their humans; they are more than just entertainment for the school term.

 

Max

Max

Max is a sweet interactive bunny of the Himalayan variety. His foster family reports that he’s always happy to greet them. He has lots of energy and loves to roam. He has good litter box habits. He is a cuddly bunny once he knows you and you’ve gained his trust. He has a lovely personality and likes both the dog and cat in his foster home (who are rabbit-savvy). He also gets along with children that have been taught that rabbits enjoy sitting quietly for a pet as opposed to being picked up.

Similar to how some cats love to scratch furniture, Max does like to chew baseboards. This behaviour can be redirected to a certain extent, by providing lots of chew toys and fresh branches from safe-to-eat trees (check our Rabbits 101 -> Rabbit Care & Food page for details).  However Max’s future Forever Family will need to be OK with some baseboard nibbles.

Spartan

This handsome lionhead is a cheeky, social bunny who seeks a quiet, calm home (adult human companions only, please – not children). Rabbit-friendly cats and dogs could be fine, and he might even enjoy a rabbit companion or two, given proper introductions. Spartan seemed “aggressive” in his first adoptive family but he was reacting out of fear. Since then he has been in a foster home, where he has been socialized and exposed to lots of new things; he is much more confident now.

Spartan enjoys living free-range and receiving leisurely head pats (he purrs). He might be a good agility candidate, as he vaults 3 feet into the garden when he gets to play there (with his human supervising to make sure he is safe, of course). Spartan needs a home where someone with patience will help him continue to build confidence.

Mighty Mouse

Mighty Mouse just cannot figure out why he’s still at the shelter. Neither can we!I mean the dude even has his own custom decorated house!

Mighty Mouse got his name because he was the smallest of nine baby rabbits but the most feisty. We were fortunate to have a wonderful foster family raise him with two rabbit-savvy children, so he is social, friendly and loves attention. He uses his litter box well.

Mighty Mouse does request that his future family keep him well-supplied with chew toys, and he loves apple branches too.

Rupert

Rupert is a bit shy at first but a calm, kind bunny with a nice attitude. He was picked up in Jericho Park where he would have been coyote food. Rupert is litter trained and not a chewy rabbit. He would probably enjoy the company of other rabbits. He is a young adult and will be happy in a home where he can run and play, and become a member of the family. Check out our video of the sweet guy.
