Rabbit Advocacy Animal Matters
Pets in need of homes
It is truly heartbreaking that millions of society's companion animals are without homes. A pet should be a commitment for life, but every day they are being relinquished to the pound, a humane society, the SPCA or to a rescue group. Some are lucky and find new homes where they are valued and cared for. Many others don't. They are killed. Others are abandoned outdoors without a second thought. Many suffer before dying a lonely death. You can help save a life and reduce the number of unwanted pets by choosing to adopt. Support animal causes, actions, and initiatives – be an advocate for our animal friends. They deserve better!
Our local newspapers feature homeless pets for adoption. The pages are supported by animal-related business advertising.

Comment: This is a small sampling of cats and rabbits that had been abandoned, in one way or another. Some were given up by their humans, others were picked up as strays or left outside shelters, and some were rescued from Death Row. Circumstances varied, but they all became homeless, and tugged at our hearts. Whether they had been neglected, abused, frightened, injured, or sick, we saw to it they were provided with the best of care. Some have remained with us, and others have moved on to new homes. While these ones were lucky, they are but a few. We're working to make a difference in easing the suffering and homelessness we see or hear of on a daily basis. Please join us by caring and making every life count. Get active. Support no-kill reform. firstname.lastname@example.org
Black Cat White Dog has a regular feature of "Pets for Adoption." See Arden & Baxter in the February - March 2014 issue. February is Adopt A Rescued Rabbit Month!
Arden is a likeable, active male rabbit. He is about 2 years old and neutered. Unfortunately, his family is relocating out of the country and is unable to take him. His favourite foods are timothy hay, cilantro, and apples. If you would like to consider adopting Arden, please note that rabbits can live up to 10 years or more.
Baxter is somewhat shy and comes from a single-rabbit home. He is 6 years old, neutered, and a bit overweight. His foster home has been reducing the amount of alfalfa pellets in his diet and giving him more vegetables and fruit. He is more active now and enjoys exploring the den - rabbit proofed for protection, of course!
Black Cat White Dog has a regular feature of "Pets for Adoption." The Rabbit Advocacy Group of BC networks with local shelters and rescue organizations in giving a second chance to rabbits awaiting permanent loving homes. See Lexie in the April - May 2014 issue.
Lexie is a lovely little Hotot who we found abandoned in a local park. She was frightened and hiding in some brush when we finally managed to pick her up. She has since been to the vet and spayed. Rabbits are prey animals and dumping them into the outdoors is both illegal and a death sentence. Lexie is one of the lucky ones and deserves a new forever home.
The Rabbit Advocacy Group is primarily an advocacy group and as such, any rabbits we rescue stay with us. We network with other groups and shelters, such as VRRA, who have rabbits for adoption. You can also contact your local humane society or another rescue group in your area. There are plenty of rabbits in need of good homes.
