Jackie

Sweet, sweet Jackie! She came to the shelter as an owner surrender but looked like she had been abandoned: she was starved and dirty, with urine stains on her feet (a sign of being forced to sit in her own filth).  The first few days at the shelter her eyes had the look of someone who had given up hope :(.

But as you can see from the photos, she has a bright demeanour now, and is soaking up all the love and attention.  She deserves to be a valued member of the family and looks forward to being adopted by kind and committed people who will do their homework about House Rabbit care.

Tannis is a young, friendly and curious little girl! She’s lucky to be getting a second chance at life, after being abandoned in a hotel room. She’s ready to start again with a committed home that’s prepared to love and care for her for the next 10+ years.

Tannis is pure black with one unique white front paw.

Teeny Tiny Tina! This little girl is a friendly ball of energy. She is a young bun and so has a 10+ year life ahead of her. She was surrendered by people who decided they were “too busy” to look after her.

Many people buy rabbits on a lark from Craigslist or a pet store without doing their homework on the care and commitment required. Tina and all her rabbit colleagues deserve better. If you have delved into the world of house rabbits and know that you are ready to have one join your family for their lifetime, then Tina may be for you.

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.

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.

Diva

Check out this little girl with the gigantic eyes! Don’t let her tiny size fool you though, she’s earned her Diva name; she may be tiny but she’s very feisty. You would be too, if your family decided they weren’t interested in you and dropped you at a shelter. Diva has lots of life and love left to give, if she can find an adoptive family that will show her committed kindness.
