A genuinely fundamental and hopeful improvement in "systems" cannot happen without a significant shift in human consciousness. Václav Havel

Praise for The Rabbit Rescuers

Kudos to animal rescuers

The voice of the small rescue and advocacy groups has gone largely unnoticed by the media. So thanks to Peter Clough.

The BCSPCA has monopolized headlines as far back as I remember, whereas we've all heard Margaret Mead's famous quote: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

It's those groups and individuals who don't get the glory, the donations or simple recognition, yet they're the ones volunteering endless hours in leading the way in efforts to make our communities better for all, one animal at a time.

Bunny population booming

People keep releasing unwanted rabbits

Tamara Slobogean Aug 19, 2010  

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - It's not just a problem at the University of Victoria anymore. The local bunny population is booming too, because people just keep on releasing their unwanted rabbits.

Local shelters don't have room, so Carmina Gooch with the
Rabbit Advocacy Group of B.C. says misguided pet owners who are tired of the responsibility, dump bunnies from Jericho Beach to parks in Ladner, Richmond and Port Coquitlam.

She says most of the animals haven't been spayed or neutered. "The municipalities have to be pro-active; government has to - all levels of government, really and get some by-laws passed prohibitiing the sale of unsterilized rabbits."

Gooch says most local colonies are offspring of released domestic rabbits. Pet abandonment may be illegal, but she's says that hasn't been enough to stop the problem so far.   

Poll: Should there be a ban on selling unsterilized rabbits? Yes: 81% No: 19
