We have wonderful news about Suzie, the big harlequin lop girl who recently lost her girlfriend Midnight. 🌈 They were both surrendered to Rabbitats in January.
Suzie has found an amazing new home and family, with five younger bunny siblings! 😁 She is the newest member of the Mythic Fluffle, and her new name is Melusine, or Lizzy for short. Her 5 new younger siblings love her already, with lots of grooming and snuggles. ♥️
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! ❤️
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.
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
The Easter Bunny Bunanza, presented by Rabbitats and Vancouver Rabbit Rescue and Advocacy and featuring the Vancouver Rabbit Agility Club, will be a mega-celebration of all things bunny!
Vancouver, BC (April 8, 2019) — Vancouver’s largest rabbit rescue and education societies are joining forces on Easter Sunday to present a rabbit experience for both dedicated and casual fans of the furry little critters.
The ‘Easter Bunny Bunanza’ will feature a ‘Rabbit Agility’ demonstration (courtesy of the Vancouver Rabbit Agility Club), the VRRA’s ‘Hoppy Hour’ for guardians to bring their own bunnies to socialize with other rabbits, and Rabbitats’ signature ‘Meet n’ Treat’ allowing people to feed healthy treats to the many willing bunny participants.
Bunny-themed crafts and treats will also be on hand along with a lot of information. Rabbits are smart, sociable little beings who make awesome pets. Potential guardians should be aware of the commitment involved when adopting one.
Those wanting to enjoy rabbits without taking on that commitment are welcome to attend the Easter Bunny Bunanza for their bunny fix!
WHAT: Easter Bunny Bunanza
WHEN: Easter Sunday, April 21st, 2019, 12:00 pm to 3:30 pm
WHERE: Ukrainian Hall, 805 East Pender Street, Vancouver, BC
Rabbitats will be staging a Bunny Meet n’ Treat April 13 and 14 at the Cloverdale Agriplex in Surrey for the Here For Kids Expo & Pet Fair, giving people the opportunity to interact with our friendly rabbits while raising funds to support the rescue. We’ll be replacing a petting zoo. 🙂
