Rabbitats Needs Farm Help

By | Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Rabbitats will at least temporarily be placing some of our rabbits at a farm in Delta (Highway 99 and Ladner Trunk Road), and we’re looking for volunteers to check on them and give them food, water and hay daily, and clean out the two stalls on weekly.
We’re also hoping people can drop by with tree branches (apple, pear, willow), produce and pulled long grass.
Rabbitats has successfully rescued rabbits in a number of areas including the Richmond Auto Mall, and now we can turn our attention to other at-risk abandoned bunnies, IF we have enough volunteers.
The level of assistance we get from this ad will greatly help determine the future of our rescue and the fate of the many abandoned pet rabbits loose in so many areas.

If you can help please email rabbitats@gmail.com.

Thank you!

Rabbitina finds a home, hopefully!

It looks like Rabbitina (or Tina) has a home with Darcy, or at least so far, so good. Tina was born at the shelter but we not only never knew who her daddy was, we weren’t totally sure who her mom was! Two moms picked up at the Auto Mall had their litters together right after we got them and we couldn’t tell whose were whose. But five were grey and then there was this feisty brown girl who looked nothing like any of the other Auto Mall rabbits. (We kept asking, ‘who’s your daddy?‘ But no-bunny was talking). She was initially inseparable from her sister Ernestine but not as much when they were old enough to be spayed and join the colony. Tina was always a terror at our events chasing the other bunnies, but she seems to have found her forever friend in Darcy. Thanks so much to Vlad and Carling. (And also thanks for the shop vac!) PS:Ernestine (or Ernie) is still available!

Crafters Needed!

Crafters Needed!

We have the Pet Lovers Show coming up on Feb 24th. We need sales items to sell and also for other events we will have in the near future. Here is some crafting idea’s:

Key chains, knitted rabbits, sock bunnies, Easter craft items, small crafts that kids can purchase, etc. It does not need to be all bunny related.

Pinterest has some awesome idea’s.

Even looking for small cat & dog toys.

It does not need to be all craft related. We just need items to sell that are affordable to purchase.

Looking for someone to help me make pom pom bunnies. These sell like hot cakes. I have a extra pom pom maker. Supper easy to make while you are watching TV.

If you can help out in anyway please let me know.

Four of our bigger bunnies lounging on top of the hay feeder… Olaf, Tonka, Butterscotch, and Munch… with little Roadie munching hay below. All available for adoption, some are single, some are bonded, but wouldn’t it be amazing if someone had room in their heart and their home for a bonded group of big bunnies?

Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary Trip

By | Donate, Events, Rescue, Sanctuary | No Comments

The trip out to the Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary yesterday left us speechless. The good work that Diane, Stephen and their volunteers do is truly amazing. And what everybody did for Rabbitats was phenomenal.
First off, meet Bunny the chicken. We started the day by being asked to pick up a Christmas chicken on the way. A family had apparently been given this girl for dinner but thankfully had a change of heart and wanted to surrender her. The sanctuary had recently taken in 25 about to be euthanized by UBC’s farm program so what was one more. Towards the end of the day, they also got a call about a sheep with an injured eye. They sprang into action, making transport and vet arrangements. The care was the priority, not the story.
Meanwhile the sanctuary had made Rabbitats the recipient of donations brought in at their open house (and we in turn had decided to share with the in-need RASTA Sanctuary), The total was a whopping $1380!!! We were stunned, barely able to say thank you at the time. We need to say thank you now. We desperately need the funds, we’ve been saddled with unforeseen rent costs and we have to move from our shelter soon. But we also really feel we need to spread some love back to Happy Herd. If the people who did not get to attend the open house on Boxing Day can see their way to making donations to account for 1/3 of what they raised for us, we’d feel a whole lot better about accepting it. Can we raise $450 for Happy Herd? Thanks to all who care! https://happyherd.org/donations/
