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!

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!

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!

Bunnies for Foster/Adoption

By | Adopt, News, Volunteers | One Comment

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.

Fosters Needed

By | Adopt, News, Volunteers | One Comment

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!

Rabbitats DXE Work Party

By | Events, News, Volunteers | No Comments

Some great photos from the Rabbitats DXE work party on the weekend.We keep the house bunnies in the basement and we have a holding area for outside bunnies under our huge deck. We’ll be developing the half-acre yard into a rabbit sanctuary come spring if we can round up volunteers and funding. Support from organizations like DXE — Direct Action Everywhere – Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories — gives us hope! We can’t thank them enough!

Remembering Uncle Joe

By | Volunteers | No Comments

Rabbitats (and the rest of the world) has suffered a tremendous loss today. RIP ‘Uncle’ Joe Stefanich.  It’s beyond words right now.  Not only did Joe build all of our wonderful bunny houses, he built our sanctuary in South Surrey.  He was an amazing human being and a friend to bunnies and people alike.
