Virgil

Virgil is the most sweet, calm and smiley rabbit that we’ve met in a long time! He’s so photogenic that it was difficult to narrow down the selection of photos to post.

Mr. V. is middle-aged, which many people think of as BAD 🙁 This is unfortunate, because people don’t realize that baby bunnies can often be messy and require a lot of patience as they learn litter training and all the other proper manners required to be a good House Rabbit.

Virgil, on the other hand, has figured all of these things out already. And, practically speaking, if you aren’t certain whether you’re ready to make the 10-15 year commitment required to adopt a baby bunny, the fact is that Virgil is about halfway through his lifespan: you’ve got lots of fun-filled years with him ahead, without worrying about whether you can commit for the time required of a youngster just starting life.

Virgil was owned by people who provided him basic care but never made him part of their family – his life consisted of a backyard hutch, along with a bunny partner. When his rabbit friend died the people suddenly developed allergies to Virgil and got rid of him.

V-man is smiling and ready to begin the next chapter of his life with people that want to embrace all of the love, affection and fun that he’s eager to give as a true House Rabbit member of the family.

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! 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.

Mr. Mighty has become withdrawn in recent months as he languishes in his cage and we are very much hoping that his Forever Family comes along soon, so his loving, exuberant personality returns, and he can love and be loved in the way that he deserves.
