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.

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.
