Volunteers Needed!

By | News, Volunteers | 2 Comments

Rabbitats in Richmond BC, is looking for volunteers who can help build and landscape our sanctuary. We need skilled and unskilled people who don’t mind getting lots of fresh air and exercise (with a little bunny love in between).
We’ll be doing groundwork, building fences, bunny houses and sheds and eventually planting a garden.
We’re also looking for some donated tools and supplies for our rabbit sanctuary.
We’re in immediate need of some pegboard, but also the following tools:
– long handled axe
– sledgehammer
– heavy duty prybar
– angle grinder
– Milwaukee saw blades
If you can help, please post, contact us at info@rabbitats.org or message us!

Home Needed for Male Mini Lop

By | Adopt, News | No Comments

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!

Gilbert Update

By | News, Sick Bunny | No Comments

Gilbert is an incredibly sweet boy who now has a new “pad” thanks to Zane‘s Zoo Michaels! ❤️ He is now able to walk forward, not just scoot backward as he was initially doing. He’s very unsteady on his feet still, but seldom falls over… unless he’s climbing over things and exploring his environment, which is also encouraging! He’s finished his antibiotics but still has a couple weeks of Panacur to go. Deanna gives him deep tissue massage every day, which he doesn’t fuss about and seems to enjoy, giving lots of kisses in return. 😘

Vlad

By | News, Sick Bunny | No Comments

Poor Vlad, his jaw abscess came back with a vengeance, and part of his jawbone is now gone and I’ll be cleaning and packing his abscess site with gauze & Betadine until his body heals the open wound. The good news is that my darling boy (he’s one of my ❤️ bunnies) still has a great appetite and his winning personality is such that everyone he meets can’t help but love our quirky little man 😘 (Deanna)

Foster Home Needed for New Female

By | Adopt, News, Rescue | No Comments

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!!

Thank you!

We need to thank some of our recent volunteers today. Saturday “Team Potts” came for the first time and together we cleaned the inside Adoptables colony (everything but mop the floors). Sunday “Team Lam” came and together we cleaned the outside colony. Today we have Louise cleaning the downstairs cage room, and Isaac & Sarah cleaning the Adoptables colony (including mop the floors). We are nothing without our volunteers ❤️ thank you!

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

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.
