URGENT: Fundraiser for RHDV2 Vaccine!

By | Donate, Fundraiser, News, Sick Bunny | No Comments

h RHDV2 killed thousands of rabbits last year and it’s still lurking in the environment.  We vaccinated close to 400 rabbits and they all need booster shots this year and we’re expecting to house another 400 rabbits or more in our new sanctuary.  We need to order at least that amount of vaccine or more now as there will only be one order this year and the deadline is APRIL 15th!  Even using bulk packs of vaccine, this is going to be an expensive proposition.  Vaccinating the rabbits is crucial.  Please donate to this cause! Please help!

Danni

By | Donate, News, Rescue | No Comments

Danni is another of the sweet New Zealand family that we took in from the Coquitlam Animal Shelter in the fall. Danni got into some kind of scuffle in her colony, and it cost us $100 to get her left lower eyelid stitched up. Danni is an absolute love, soaking up pets and cuddles, and would make somebun a lovely bunwife. 😘

Danni’s family has cost us a fair amount in vet bills, and we could REALLY use help with that. People are welcome to donate directly to Apex Animal Hospital or Little Paws Animal Clinic, just give them a call. Our paypal and e-transfer address is financial@rabbitats.org, and here’s a GoFundMe link: https://www.gofundme.com/rabbitats-vet-bills-2019

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.

Rescue Story: Gilbert

By | Donate, Fundraiser, Rescue, Sick Bunny | No Comments

This is Gilbert. One of our volunteers spotted him falling over (on Gilbert St in Richmond) and another volunteer went out and caught him. (Thank you Amber and Lynn).   He went to our shelter and then to Little Paws to see Dr. Adam.  He underwent treatment for parasites and possible poisoning. We are neither mandated nor budgeted to pick up rabbits like Gilbert, but how can you not?    Animal control in Richmond won’t pick them up, and if they’re brought in they’ll just be euthanized, they don’t have the resources for long term care. But neither do we. And now we have Gilbert. And Gilbert’s sizable vet bill. His uncertain future is in our hands. We’re in desperate need of foster homes and Sick Bunny Fund contributions for rabbits like Gilbert. We just can’t leave them out there.

Vet bills keep piling up..

By | Donate, Sick Bunny | No Comments

And the vet bills keep piling up. One of our rescued meat bunnies from Coquitlam started lurching and looking poorly. She was rushed to the vet (kudos to the Little Paws Animal Clinic for seeing her at the end of a very long day making it much much longer). We thought she had a broken rear leg, but a million x-rays later and no answers.
ALSO: We haven’t had a chance to post about our other sick bunnies, but since our last update, poor Bart had to have surgery to remove a long and deep abscess on his back; an old girl from the Surrey sanctuary has been in semi-intensive care receiving exams, fluids and nutrients after a dental issue; Vlad’s face abscess returned requiring exams and cleaning, and many other bunny issues. (The bill at Little Paws alone is already back up to being over $1700). Donations would be so very much appreciated. Here’s our GoFundMe link. Please share!

Bunny Emergency

By | Advocacy, Donate, Rescue, Sick Bunny | No Comments

We have a bunny emergency. Somebody found an abandoned rabbit with a broken leg, they couldn’t find anywhere to take the poor thing (the agencies supposedly mandated to do this apparently can’t or won’t), so they called us and we couldn’t say no. The rabbit is at the Little Paws Animal Clinic in Richmond (Steveston) and will be having surgery when we get everything in place. Dr. Avitan will be giving us an awesome deal but we still need to fundraise to cover the costs and we’ll need a special needs foster home for this rabbit.

Our YouCaring fundraising account has been deleted (!) as they transition to GoFundMe (which doesn’t take Paypal) so funds can go through Rabbitats’ email address (rabbitats@gmail.com) for both Paypal and e-transfers, or contact Little Paws to put a payment on our account (604-241-7387). The Donate button on our Facebook page links to our website (rabbitats.org) donate page which also takes credit cards.

Please donate if you can.  We’re already stretched to the max.
