Thank You to Our Volunteers!

By | News, Volunteers | No Comments

James Wilson and his rabbit, Oreo, took in some local sights on Saturday before arriving to do a Bunny Spa for us, along with another dedicated volunteer, Iris Klimczuk. Together, they trimmed nails on 72 rabbits in a couple hours, finishing in time for the RHD vaccination clinic.

We are very thankful to the wonderful Joseph Martinez, DVM, for vaccinating 40 of our shelter rabbits. He was assisted by able vet assistant Nathalie; new volunteer and soon-to-be adopter, Terrence (wrangler); Iris (scribe); James (wrangler); and Deanna, who oversaw the whole operation. Truly a great team effort!

Afterwards, the shelter bunnies enjoyed tearing into a treat bag brought by James!

We recently did the “gender reveal” for our litter #2 born March 2nd… the grey baby and the black baby with the stripe on the nose are boys… and the other three black babies are girls! ❤️

Babies Born March 2nd

Our five adorable little babies born March 2nd. ❤️ 
They really are small compared to our other two litters (born Feb 22 & March 27), but their mom is a wee dwarf-cross grey feral girl, whereas the moms of the other litters are larger dumped house bunnies.

URGENT: Fundraiser for RHDV2 Vaccine!

By | Donate, Fundraiser, News, Sick Bunny | One Comment

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! RHDV Fund

Vlad Update

By | News, Sick Bunny | No Comments

Vlad waiting pensively at Apex for the re-check on his jaw abscess with osteomyelitis… it’s good news! Healing is on track, he’ll finish his course of Azithromycin, we’ll keep the wound clean, and hope that this kicks it once and for all.

He’s been on supplemental Critical Care since we took him in a couple years ago (after his first jaw abscess), but he’s getting more right now to get his weight up. He has a huge appetite, eats everything we give him, and eats his Critical Care right out of the bowl. 🙂

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!
