Lotus (Vancouver)

Meet sweet and sassy Lotus! Lotus has a beautiful black coat that has a shine to it under the sun. Her chubby cheeks and potato shaped body is adorable to everyone who visits her. 

Lotus is incredibly smart and curious as she loves to be involved with her humans and learn daily routines very quickly. She is litter trained and will only leave a few coco puffs out while free roaming which may die down over time as she gets used to her space. She is a good girl and always returns to her litter box to pee. 

Lotus is a sweet and sassy bunny, constantly entertaining her foster parents by begging for head pets and demanding food. After settling down in a new home, she will allow her trusted human to cuddle with her on her terms, preferably on the floor or couch where she is resting. 

Lotus will do well in a household with respectful older children. Like many bunnies, Lotus is afraid of loud noises and sudden movements. It is unknown if Lotus will do well in a home with other animals as she can get scared by the sight of cats and dogs. A slow introduction with a respectful and quiet dog or cat may work. 

Lotus is a great candidate for bonding! During speed dating, Lotus has shown her agile skills by jumping in a dancing motion around potential partners. She is always super excited to meet a new friend and eager to find her loving, forever home!

Hans (Vancouver)

Hans is probably a Jersey Wooly crossed with a Dutch rabbit. He has Dutch colouring and a Jersey Wooly coat. Hans was taken from Jericho Park. Rabbits with a long, easily tangled coat like his have virtually no chance of surviving outside. HIs coat was matted right down to the skin and had to be shaved off. He is very shy.

Hans will now come forward and eat but avoids being touched. He has to tolerate it regularly because his coat needs a lot of care. It’s important that he be regularly groomed and sometimes trimmed. Without this attention his coat will mat badly. Hans is a nice bunny and has come a long way but he will need someone special to care for him. If you are interested in adopting Hans, please apply today!

Richie (Vancouver)

Richie is a very handsome rabbit with his striking black and orange coat. He’s marked like a bumble bee. Richie lived outdoors fending for himself for at least 4 years. His rescuer looked out for him and fed him everyday. Then she noticed that he was falling over and having trouble running in a straight line. Richie came to us. He has had medication and has improved but he is still wobbly and probably always will be. He will come for food and sometimes tolerates a pet or two but he is still very shy. Richie needs that special person who will be patient with him. He is not a difficult rabbit to keep but has some housing needs. 

If you are interested in adopting Richie, please apply today!

Phoenix (Vancouver)

Name: Phoenix (Phi Phi)
Colour: Brown Agouti
Sex: Female
Birthday: Aug 8 2022
Age: 1 year
Spayed and vaccinated.

This brown beauty Phoenix (Phi Phi) has her lineage from the famous Jericho Beach bunnies.

She is quite the independent bunny. Shy and doesn’t enjoy being picked up or touched all that much, Phoenix will allow you to hold and cuddle her for a short amount of time but will communicate that its time to put her down by giving little pinching nips.

She will need a kind and patient home that will give her the time she needs to warm up to people or allow her to be the aloof bunny she wants to be. She doesn’t really care for the company of other rabbits either. She had enough of her sister one day and decided to tell her she didn’t want to share a house with her anymore that led to a scuffle which split her ear (stitches didn’t help unfortunately). She once tolerated a manbun in her home so there’s hope she can one day partner with another.

She is a big, sweet, food loving girl, though, that just needs to learn that people are here to be her servants. So if you miss having teenagers around the house, Phoenix is the bunny for you! If you want to adopt Phoenix, please do your research and apply today.

Kendra (Vancouver)

Name: Kendra
Colour: Black
Sex: Female
Birthday: Aug 8 2022
Age: 1 year
Spayed and vaccinated.

Kendra was born just days after her feral mother was rescued from Jericho beach. Black bunnies have a hard time finding forever homes but Kendra is a cuddler which is not common for many rabbits. She does well being picked up and loves being petted so she will even nose boop you whenever you are nearby to ask for affection.

Kendra is a bit mischievous and has often escaped her room to explore the rest of the house. She prefers to be indoors and would even suit living in an apartment as long as she has room to run around and fulfill her curiosity.

If you adopt Kendra, you will learn why so many people fall in love with the friendly little bunnies of Jericho beach. If you want to adopt her, please do your research and apply today.

Nolan (Vancouver)

Nolan is a Dutch cross that shows in his blue eyes and black coat with white markings. He is a sweet boy who has had bad luck. He likes to be petted and is a pleasant little bunny. He was dumped outside in the winter of 2019. We found him thin and in bad shape. He ran to the people who picked him up. 

Nolan was adopted in 2020 and at that time he was in normal health. He was returned to us in May this year. During his adoption something happened to his spine and it has caused his left hind leg to become frozen. It looks worse than it is. Nolan moves around well and can get in his litter box just fine as long as the rim is not too high. Because he can’t use his left hind leg, his ear on that side needs to be cleaned regularly. Other than that he is a regular bunny. Nolan awaits his forever home with someone to love him.

Nolan’s current foster says: He pees only in his litter box but still poops a little outside of it! He is a friendly patient boy that likes to make my blankets on the bed and lets me pet him. He half-binkies when he gets his food and treats!

If you’d like to meet Nolan, apply to adopt today!  

Arby (Vancouver)

Arby was found abandoned sitting outside the Arbutus West Vet clinic. A kind-hearted schoolboy saw him and took him home.

He is a large rabbit (7lb) with an equally large personality – he loves attention and pets from his human, and loves to zoom around on the carpet and toss his favourite toys around. He is excellent with his litter box but does like to chew things, especially cardboard and his towel.

Despite his friendliness, Arby is not an ideal “first rabbit” candidate due to his enthusiasm for attention – he is so happy to see you that he will lunge and grunt at your feet or pull at your pant legs which can be intimating until you get to know him. He is also territorial when he gets his pellets – will grunt at you if you get too close! Over-enthusiasm aside, he loves to hang out with someone and will come right up beside you and flop over on his side for pets.

His foster mother has noticed that he really enjoys being talked to and will often perform little hops and binkies in response. Arby would thrive in a home where he gets to spend lots of time with his person/family. As he is a large rabbit, he does not like hardwood floors – he requires carpeting or some other surface with traction. His current house has 2 cats and he has not been bothered by
their presence. He will make someone a wonderful companion! Scroll down to see a video of Arby bounding up and down the stairs.

If you’d like to meet Arby, apply to adopt him today!  

Shadow (Vancouver)

This is Shadow!

He is approximately 7.5 months old. We found Shadow just before Christmas and brought him to our home to keep him warm. He is very clean, curious and adores rubs behind his ears.

During the day he likes to sleep in a comfortable dark place, but at dusk and dawn he likes to be a part of the family. He is active and playful and loves time outside.

He also likes to keep tabs on our golden retriever. And our kids!

If you’re interested in meeting Shadow, please do your research and fill in an adoption application at vrra.org.

Demarcus (Vancouver)

Meet Demarcus, a beautiful harlequin rabbit who is ready for his furever home and is sure to hop his way into your heart.

Although Demarcus can be a bit shy at first, he loves to explore, find cosy places to hide and get pets. In his spare time, he enjoys playing in his tube and shredding newspaper and cardboard. He’s also a responsible rabbit who uses his litter box properly. Demarcus is a gentle, respectful rabbit who puts up with being picked up when needed.

Demarcus is a real bun-dle of joy to have around the house and will make an adorable addition to your family. If you are interested in adopting him, please apply today!

Lennon & Minerva (Vancouver)

Lennon and Minerva are the cutest sibling duo, both are almost 1 year old (born May 4th 2022). They are shy, but gentle with humans and warm up to people with time. Lennon is the daring sibling, while Minerva (right white paw) is the more cautious sibling. They don’t enjoy being petted unless they are familiar with you. They love a good chew toy, specifically pieces of cardboard or apple wood stick. They also love their salads and like to play tug-a-war with each other over pieces of lettuce. 

The sweetest moments shared are post-meals, when in a dreamy food-coma state, they like to sploot beside each other and snuggle. They have so much love between them, in fact, they like lick and groom their rabbit stuffy as well! Lennon and Minerva are very clean and well litter-trained. There is never a dull moment with these two cuties! If you would like to give them a loving home, please apply today!
