Nugget and Muffin

Nugget (dark-grey) and Muffin (tan-grey) are fighters. Rescued as babies from a hail storm that their nine siblings tragically didn’t survive, it’s no wonder they’re absolutely inseparable. Friendly and playful, they will happily boop you to let you know who’s boss (in the most loving way) and most of the time you can find them cuddling and grooming each other or lounging out around your home like bunny baguettes.

These confident girls are very forward and willing to tell you what’s on her mind. If they’re unhappy with something, they will proudly stomp their feet in protest. This is a great feature because one is able to easily see their likes and dislikes and make adjustments accordingly. For example, coaxing them back into their enclosure for bedtime despite a full day of free-roam play will result in a thump 9/10 times. Fortunately they are very food-motivated which makes them easily persuaded.

Given their rough start and justifiable distrust of humans, it’s truly incredible how far they’ve come. Nugget will let you pet her when she’s lounging about, and Muffin has zero hesitation to hop up on the couch and leap onto your lap! Muffin is not too keen on pets but she’s slowly warming up to them! Both bunnies have perfect litter skills, always doing #1 in their litter box, and leaving minimal stray #2s around their enclosure.

We can’t wait for them to find their perfect home to give them all the love and attention that they deserve. For those looking to scoop these sweeties up, please be able to provide lots of fresh veggies (their favourite) and a big space that they can call their own. In addition to, of course, a lifetime of love!

Olive and Brutus

Olive and Brutus are a lovely pair of bonded bunnies who are looking for their forever home!

Both rabbits are Netherland dwarfs, 3 years old, spayed/neutered. They received vaccinations for RHDV2 (hemorrhagic disease) as well as other vaccines / dewormings that would be recommended by the vet.

The white rabbit is the female. Her name is Olive. The male rabbit is the one with the black markings. His name is Brutus. Brutus is slightly younger than Olive, maybe by 3 months or so. He is playful, friendly and cautious. Olive is more exploratory and when exposed to a new environment Olive will be the one who goes out and explores seems to be like the mommy rabbit. Both rabbits seem to be exceptionally curious and super cute and lovely. They are both litter trained and will go in their litter box almost always. The bunnies are bonded and inseparable. If one rabbit goes to the vet, the other one comes along for support.

Their diet consists of 3 pieces of romaine lettuce per day, unlimited timothy hay and about ¼ cup of pellets each per day. The bunnies get occasional treats of small carrot slices, strawberry slices and the like, but sparingly.

Smudge & Oriel

Smudge is a cute, black dwarf lion head bunny.  He is the softest bunny ever!  He’s approx 6 1/2 yrs old. He’s curious, playful and knows his name is Smudge. He is fine to be held and stroked for a little while but likes to explore and be with Oriel most of the time. He’s very friendly and will follow you around. 

Oriel is a golden tan half Rex about 5 1/2 yrs old. She is a gentle bunny, easy to handle. Oriel has become very overweight and needs someone to watch her diet and make sure she gets lots of exercise. They will be good companion rabbits. Smudge and Oriel need a home with an experienced rabbit owner, and would not be suited to a home with children, as Smudge can be quite territorial.

Notes from their current foster:

Smudge and Oriel are the best couple that you will ever have as a bunny lover. If it wasn’t for my husband’s allergy to hay, I’d love to keep them for the rest of their life. Oriel is a cute round bun that was a bit shy at the beginning of arriving at her new home. She got adapted to the environment from the second week on and she would come out to explore our dining room. Compared to Smudge, Oriel is the calmer one, if you like some quiet time of your own, she’d definitely be your best company.

Smudge is a little power generator – we call him “little bull”! He’s always full of energy. If you like dogs, Smudge is on the same level of a little puppy who will chase you wherever you go. He got used to a new home very easily. We have a fully fenced backyard with a patio and lawn behind. Once in a while I would let Smudge free run at the patio where I called “Free Buffet for the Bunnies” and leave the door a little bit open. He always came back to the house by himself, if not, I simply made a “tic, tic, tic” sound, and that would bring him back to where I was immediately. We’ve grown lots of vegetables on our patio. Their favorites are mustard leaves, dill, red leaf amaranth, cilantro, kale, and green leaf part of a cauliflower. Smudge also eats sunflower leaves, basil leaves, peppermint, and shiso leaves. Oriel loves the flower part of the veggies. We also made sure that they ate lots of hay.

Some notes for prospective owners: they do chew cables when they are bored or out of your sight, so make sure you put the cables out of reach or install protections. I put bamboo sticks and timothy sticks for them in the pen, and they would chew them. Smudge runs very fast near you even though he’s so small, so please make sure while walking, don’t step on him. Smudge bites whatever comes nearby without sniffing so just make sure you let him know when entering his territory (which can be inside the X pens or the spot you put him with Oriel together) don’t try to pet him or show him your hands until he calms down. If you need to hold him, make sure you hold him well because once you start lowering him down on the floor, he will try to escape and he might scratch you.

Oriel is a very special girl so you need to give her more time to get to know you and her new home. She didn’t move much at the beginning when we first got her. She became more active when we put her in the X pen out on our lawn late in the afternoon. She looks calm but that doesn’t mean she’s not scared, so try to be patient with her. Hold her gently if you need to. And she will let you put her down without panic.

We only kept them for 2 weeks though they already brought us great joy especially when they got more outgoing and comfortable around us. I’m sure you’re going to find out more by spending more time with them.

Tim and Todd

We’re Tim and Todd – the double maned lionhead duo! We’re fluffy, cute and we love to be groomed! So much so that we need you to groom us on a consistent basis otherwise we get matted and can’t see! But how can you resist our adorable double manes? 

We’re very expressive brothers that are a bit shy in the beginning but really warm up when you show us love and attention. I’ll let you in on a little secret; treats are the way to our heart, but we know we can’t have them all the time; too bad! 

We were found abandoned in a small cage, left over when our previous owners moved out of the apartment. We were quite sad they didn’t take us with them but it’s their loss! We’re happy, loved and have a much larger space now anyway! We know you’ll love us as much as our VRRA foster does. 

Todd (fluffy white bun) is a bit more nervous than I am but that’s okay, I help him along and he relies on me. I think it’s because he’s a bit hard of hearing. Be sure to trim around his eyes so he can see, I’d do it but I’d probably hurt both of us! When I am comfortable with you, he’ll follow along!

We love our hidey box. We enjoy flipping it so you have to come flip it back over. We make it a game! We enjoy a variety of toys and enrichment!

We’re not really good with our litter box despite trying our best! We use it for pee mostly but we’re just so excited to run around our house that we leave poops all over! We know it’s an issue so please be patient and help us learn to fully use our litter. We really want to be good boys for you!

We love cats but we’re not too fond of other bunnies. Our foster sometimes brings other buns to stay over and we know why she does it but we get stressed. Can you give us a bunny free home? We’d really love it!

Mac and Hazelnut

Meet two of our “nut family “.   Mac and Hazelnut are bonded brothers born April 11th this year in a shelter.  

These fun loving boys are looking forward to finding a family to call their own.

They are clean, playful and love to zoom around .  Hazelnut can be a bit chewy but as long as he has plenty to do he is normally good.

They are gentle rabbits but not skittish or shy.  

Mac and Hazelnut have not really known a home just a shelter. – can you give these gentlemen the home they deserve?

Ira and Gopy

Gopy (silver/blue) and Ira (brown/agouti) are “brothers from another mother”.

Both were found as tiny babies within a few weeks of each other in different locations alone on the streets of Vancouver.  They’ve grown up together in foster care and are both exceptionally sweet, affectionate and funny young rabbits.

As bonded buns, they are looking forward to living together in a loving home, where they can continue to bring joy to humans as they enjoy lots of free roam time and enrichment. 

They are neutered and aside from some territorial droppings (likely due to their foster mom’s own resident rabbits) they are quite good with their litter boxes. They are very loving towards each other and groom one another constantly. Both boys are very accepting of cuddles.

Poppy & Pansy

Poppy & Pansy

Poppy and Pansy are a double-dose of adorable!

Poppy (white spot on the nose) has a very loving personality and is always ready for a cuddle. She loves to sit on one’s lap for extended periods of time while receiving pats & kisses. Pansy has an adventurous personality and loves to explore. She is the alpha girl who looks out for both of them. Pansy is warming up to cuddles – on her terms – she dislikes being picked up – as most bunnies do. 

Their litterbox habits are consistently great 98% of the time. Poppy & Pansy enjoy a healthy diet and an occasional treat (banana, berries, apple). 

Both bunnies enjoy nibbling on cardboard, showing off with binkies, zoomies and a comfy hide-out box to sleep in together. These bun-sisters will be awesome free-roaming house bunnies, as they have been thriving having a spacious room of their own in foster.

Poppy & Pansy will bring much joy, love and laughs to whomever is lucky enough to become their Forever Home. Is that you?

Annie and Fiona

It’s nice to snuggle with a friend.

Annie & Fiona are bonded sisters and are ready to make the hop into a Forever Home together.

These large friendly girls have been raised in a foster home with respectful dogs.

Big Bunnies are the Best!

Ilsa And Dalia

Ilsa is a light grey chinchilla colour and Dalia is a dark grey agouti with a white spot on her nose. These loving sisters are just youngsters but are already big girls and make a fine duo! They’re from an abandoned family of rabbits recently taken in. They have been fostered in a home with respectful dogs.

Peter and Paul

Petey (brown) and Paul (white) are loving brothers who groom, cuddle and sleep together. Petey is the outgoing leader and Paul feels safe following his brother. Both are friendly and love running free around the house, and enjoy pets. When spooked, Paul runs to Petey for reassurance, or goes to hide beside his foster Mom. They are cuties!
