George

By | Adopt, News | No Comments

Adoptable George is still looking for his furever home. He’ll be 2 years old on March 8th. He was in a foster-to-adopt home about a year ago, but came back to us when his family unexpectedly had to move. He was a happy boy in their home, with great litter habits, though he may need a bit of re-training after life in the colony. George doesn’t do so well in the colony, and is currently enjoying some quality time with himself. 😜 He is a spunky boy who gives affection on his own terms but will definitely entertain you as he enjoys life in your home.

Milo

By | Adopt, News | No Comments

Adoptable Milo got his spa treatment at the shelter today. He’s such a fluffy boy.  Milo was one of four bunnies we rescued from Iona Beach Park a couple summers ago. The two girls are adopted together, the other boy is in long-term foster, and Milo had been adopted and bonded as husbun to a lovely girl Zoey. When Zoey had health issues, back & forth to the vet, sadly it eventually broke their bond and they couldn’t live together anymore. A recently surrendered six year old boy now lives with Zoey, and our personality-plus Milo is back with us at the shelter. He lived with cats & dogs in his previous home, but considers himself king-of-the-castle. He’s always up for pets and ear rubs, but disapproves of being picked up! We know that Milo can be bonded, but if you have lots of time to love him, he may be happy as a solo bunny.

Two New Boys

By | Donate, News, Rescue | No Comments

We just snagged these two guys before they were sent off to the auction. They’re at our vet being neutered. They’re seven months old, weighing in at 6 and 7.5 lbs. They still have a lot of growing to do, they’ll be big boys. This makes a total of 11 rabbits we’ve taken in over the last week or two. We could REALLY use help with our vet bills. These will be the last bunnies we can take in without funding. Please share! People are welcome to donate to Apex directly, just give them a call.

RIP Noah

By | Donate, News, Sick Bunny | No Comments

RIP Noah. We had Noah, one of the dozen New Zealand white bunnies we took in from Coquitlam, in for a dental a few days ago and yesterday he passed away from a heart defect. He was always a quiet boy, and now we know why.
These rabbits have been both the happiest and saddest cases. The conditions they were kept in must have been horrendous, crammed in one small cage without sunlight or the proper nutrition, the life most meat bunnies lead. They were all given free run of a very large, fun enclose we built under our (huge) deck and they’ve been so happy.  But they have so many issues from their bad beginnings.
The photo is Noah with his surviving sisters Maddie and Gabby (in foster care with Zane), and their future isn’t looking that great either. Their late sister Maggie’s tests showed serious bone loss and both these girls are unsteady. If we can raise the funds, we’ll be doing further tests to see if there’s anything more we can do for them. Please donate if you can.

Patches for Adoption

By | Adopt, News | No Comments

Look at this pretty lady! Patches is a happy, curious, and adventurous girl. She was found as a young stray in Maple Ridge, and should be about 1 year old now. She is best to adopt as a solo bunny, as she is a bit wary of new bunnies. She will thrive with loving people who are patient while she get used to her new home and family. She is waiting for you at our Richmond shelter!

Chip Doing Well!

By | News, Sick Bunny | No Comments

New foster mom Rae (who is also taking great care of Trooper, our amputee boy) reports that tilted bunny Chip did very well after his last vet appointment! He is now in a large cage, sitting on his cozy fleece blanket folded in four for padding, and he is barely tilted – he’s not even leaning against Joanna, his girlfriend! He’s back on Baytril 2x day until his original bottle is finished, Metacam which helps keep him comfortable, and Duplocillin injections 2x week for 15 weeks. The cage makes him feel more secure and not overstimulated so when he hops around, he doesn’t fall and panic, which is when he starts rolling. Thanks to Dr. Upjohn as well as Rae and previous foster mom Karen for their stellar care! 🐰

Bunnies for Foster/Adoption

By | Adopt, News, Volunteers | No Comments

We have the cutest babies just in after losing their home. Mom is a lop, Dad is a white lionhead, and the six babies are all over the map! They’re 11 weeks and they can be fostered until they are old enough for spays and neuters, and then adopted. (The boys can be done in another month, the girls likely in two months). There are four boys and two girls. (Pictured is mom and the two girls and the four boys in another shot). We need to get mom and dad done and then they will also be up for adoption. Please spread the word! They’re currently at our shelter in Richmond, BC. (Thanks for the ride, Vlad!) We’re not getting any support on this one so spay/neuter assistance would also be appreciated.

Fosters Needed

By | Adopt, News, Volunteers | No Comments

We’re in need of people who can foster one or more of our bunnies in treatment. We have bunnies needing medication, Critical Care feedings, a bit of cleaning, who need to be closely monitored, etc. Would anybody be up for that over the holidays? It’s Christmas Eve but thought we’d throw that out there. Our caregivers are really overwhelmed right now. Please contact us if you are able to help!
