About us:

Our all-volunteer group is committed to raising public awareness regarding the plight of rabbits in our society, with emphasis on those exploited by the pet industry, and by taking action on their behalf.  Please contact us for information at info@rabbitadvocacy.com on how you can become involved with our hands-on rescue work, education, fundraising, and advocacy campaigns.  Rabbits are notoriously overlooked and undervalued in society, and desperately need more voices!  Donations to help specifically with medical costs and sterilization can be made through the Pets In Need Society. In 2006, Pets In Need Society paid for the sterilization of 240 cats, dogs, and rabbits.  In addition, financial assistance was provided for 216 other neglected, sick, homeless, rescued, and injured animals. Pets in Need was again busy in 2007, funding 261 animal spays and neuters in our commitment to help with pet population control.  We also helped pay the vet bills for just over 400 animals requiring medical attention. 

Veterinary care included problems big and small, with everything from fractured or broken bones, abscesses, dental work, and blood panels to help with diagnosis and treatment of a problem.  The Rabbit Advocacy Group of BC and Pets In Need Society are most grateful for the network of caring people who make it possible for us to continue our work of helping our valued animal friends.  It's truly worth it.  No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted, and to each animal, it makes a world of difference.
 
With awareness comes change and our message is one of compassion, respect, and justice for all Earth's creatures.  Speak out, get active, be that change!
 
Note: Effective January, 2009 we ask that any monetary donations to help rabbits be directed to Animal Advocates Society, TRACS, or a charity of your choice. Whatever you can do to help is appreciated by all.
