This cute Dutch rabbit is Cupcake! Cupcake was a little timid at first but with some coaxing and his favourite treats he has really come out of his shell! Cupcake has a lot of spunk and loves bedtime snuggles and kisses! Hallie says their bond is very strong and she is incredibly lucky to have Cupcake in her life!

Thanks Hallie!

Sweet and beautiful Dori was surrendered because her first home bought her as a gift for their four year old and quickly realized a rabbit is not a children’s pet! Dori now has a wonderful forever home with Nyima and enjoys cuddles and giving kisses!

Adopt A Rescued Rabbit!

adoptdontshopFebruaryforweb

Did you know that February is Adopt A Rescued Rabbit Month?

Unfortunately rabbits are the third most abandoned animal at shelters. Unlike what you may have heard, these animals are not ‘starter’ pets. Rabbits need the attention and commitment of a cat or dog, require several hours of daily free range exercise and do best with a companion of their own kind.


So Why Adopt A Rabbit?

1) Rabbits can be easily litter trained.

2) Rabbits are extremely social and love to interact with you.

3) Rabbits have a life span of approximately 8-10 years.

4) Rabbits are fairly quiet, do not require outside bathroom trips or frequent walks.

5) With some rabbit proofing, rabbits make great and clean house pets!


There Are Many Reasons To Adopt Your Next Pet:

  • Save A Life

By choosing to adopt you are giving a displaced pet the loving, forever home that it deserves! And not only are you saving the life of that animal but you are freeing up a space so the rescue can take in another.

  • Get A Healthy Pet

Prior to being adopted out, most shelters and rescues will have surrendered animals examined by a vet, get them up to date on any necessary vaccines, spay and neuter the animal (when applicable) and treat any health issues. You can be assured that when that furbaby joins your home it is in the best of health. Any animals with chronic health conditions requiring ongoing treatment or medications will have these medical conditions listed in their description so there are no surprises.

  • Make Sure You End Up With The Right Pet For You

The staff and volunteers at your local shelter are there to make sure that you end up with the right pet to suit your needs and lifestyle. They want these animals to be happy in their forever home as much as you do and that means helping you identify what you are looking for in an animal as well as how much space, time and money you have to dedicate to a pet. Most rescues have a screening process to ensure the right animal goes home with the right owner.

  • Save Money

Adoption fees typically include a full health check by a qualified veterinarian, spay/neuter, necessary vaccines and any medical treatments required to get that pet back to full health. This fee is minimal when you consider what it would cost for you to have these done yourself at your local vet’s office.

  • Know That You’re Serious About Adding A New Family Member To Your Home

An adoption takes time to process. There are applications to complete and a screening process to undergo before you get to bring home that pet. Unlike buying a pet on a whim this gives you time to really consider if you are serious about sharing your life with a furry friend.

  • That Feel Good Feeling

There is nothing like the feeling of knowing that because of you an animal has been given a second chance. And trust me, they will thank you for it every day.


A rabbit is not for everyone. Please make sure to check out our videos including Is A Rabbit The Right Pet For You?

And if you’re not ready to make the commitment but are still passionate about these wonderful animals, please consider making a donation to your local rabbit rescue or shelter.  Your contribution could help neuter or spay a rabbit in need, provide food and temporary housing or pay for any required medical treatment.

FluffyBundaySunday

Submitted By: Doug & Sherry

This beautiful boy was found on the roadside in a small wire cage in the middle of summer with no food and water. A friend found him and Doug and Sherry decided to take him in. They built him a two level rabbit condo with an attached x-pen so that even when Fluffy is caged he has plenty of space to run around! It didn’t take Fluffy long to warm up to his new and safe home! He now loves to play with his toys and run around, is great with his litter box and will hop up to you for a head rub!

Thanks Doug & Sherry!

FAQ Friday: Your Advice Questions Answered!

Question:

Hi Bb!

We were thinking about purchasing a large ball to put our bunny in so that he can run around safely without us having to bunny-proof our home. Are there any dangers with doing this?

Thanks,

M.

Answer:

Hi M,

Thank you for your question! Exercise balls should not be used for rabbits. There are none that are large enough for a rabbit, would not provide adequate ventilation and would force your rabbit to curve it’s spine at an awkward angle. Rabbits also don’t walk or run like small rodents do, they hop, which would make it extremely difficult for them to move around comfortably in a ball. I would suggest bunny proofing an area of your home so your rabbit can move around and stretch it’s legs naturally.

Lots Of Hay For The New Year!

IMG_1465

A few weeks ago, Mom and Dad braved a snowstorm to pick up 6 bales of farm fresh timothy hay from Bales4Bunnies! Hay is the most important part of our diet you know and should always be available in unlimited amounts!

IMG_1466

When Mom and Dad got home they set to work dividing the hay in to storage containers and sacks. Now it’s taking over our house! There’s hay here…

IMG_1467

…and here….

IMG_1468

…and lots under here! There are even five more bins tucked under there full of the good stuff! I think we’ll be set for a while!

If you’re in the Peterborough area, you should check out their website:

My bunnies love their hay and you can’t beat the price!
