This mini lop was found in an alley at East 45th and Gladstone in Vancouver in the snow this morning. He appears to be a neutered male.We’re hoping that he is a much loved lost rabbit and wasn’t just dumped there. Animal control in Vancouver is apparently still not taking rabbits even if they’re strays. The poor family that picked him up from the alley had a dog that wanted to eat him and couldn’t keep him.They fell in love with him even in the short time he was with them and couldn’t just put him back where they found him. We are totally full, we took him for the night but we can’t keep him either. He is a very sweet bunny!

This lone, friendly, frantic bunny was spotted in an area where the hedges and bushes were being torn up for a construction project due to start today. Debbie and Lynn raced off in the cold and snow last night to get this girl. The bunny was hiding under a pier and ran to Debbie as soon as she called. Says Lynn: “I saw this scared eager bunny against the white blowing snow and I knew we had to get her. She screamed and screamed but then as I talked to her she calmed down and held her against me.” So this girl, now named Joyce, is safe at the shelter. We really need some foster homes, with the cold weather our outdoor holding spaces are even challenged meaning feral rabbits we expected to stay outside are taking space inside. Help!!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Winston & Sebastian are brothers, and Christian (Winston’s son, not pictured) makes three!
Would you be able to open your home and your hearts to this loveable, gentle, bonded trio of big boy buns? If so, please contact us for more information!
Patches, our sweet January calendar girl, is such a friendly bunny to both humans and other bunnies. She’d love to find her very own family and bunny friend to live with. Do you have a bunny looking for love? ♥️
