Vancouver Rabbit Rescue and Advocacy was incorporated in 2003 as a non-profit British Columbia society, became a Canadian registered charity shortly thereafter and in 2009 became the Vancouver Chapter of the House Rabbit Society.
We are dedicated to raising awareness of rabbits as house pets, to the care and shelter of abandoned and neglected rabbits, and to education regarding the problems of rabbit breeding, selling and their care.
We love volunteers! We need foster homes! Please check out our volunteer and fostering opportunities on our website and you can also submit the online application form on our website (www.vrra.org).
Why? – Why a charity for rabbits? While there are many groups who shelter and care for dogs and cats rabbits are often forgotten. The need is great. Rabbits are largely misunderstood and neglected, most of the time due to ignorance rather than intention.
Who? – VRRA is run by a group of ordinary citizens who care about the plight of domestic rabbits. All are volunteers, most have rabbits of our own, full time jobs and busy lives.
How? – VRRA funds its operations through donations and profits from the sale of products. Currently roughly 50 percent of the funding comes from each source.
Where? – VRRA has a 38 cage rabbit shelter where healthy rabbits available for adoption are housed in a secure facility. They also have outside space to exercise on a daily basis. We also use foster homes to house rabbits that need medical care, behavioural modification or just plain attention and love.
