The Timmins Bunnies
Rabbit Rescue gets bunnies from the animal shelter in Timmins from time to time. We give them a place to hang out until the other foster or adoptive families can get over to pick them up.
The following 2 bunnies arrived August 31st.
Abbey was adopted January, 2008
Abbey is an English Spot bunny
cthat was neglected by her previous
owner and left outside all of the time where she was attacked by a
dog. This attack resulted in a large abscess on her back.
She was nursed back to health by her foster family. They also had
her spayed. She is about 3 years old and a big bunny, probably
around 10-11lbs. She has a wonderful personality, very
affectionate and will nudge you to continue petting if you stop.
She loves to eat! Celery is one of her favourites. She loves
to binky and you'll be impressed when you see a big bunny binky!
She is used to being free-range during the day and in her cage at
night. She is not destructive but she does like to steal your
newspapers and run off with them.
Bailey was adopted September 4,
Bailey, a neutered male, was adopted
immediately and went to a home with another male bunny.
He is a 2 year old Holland Lop whose
owners were arrested in a police raid and subsequently were unable to
care for him.
He is a very relaxed bunny but can be a bit insecure at night which he
showed us by thumping very loudly! We kept a light on and he
settled right in. He did not chew anything, including wires, at
his foster home. His litter habits are excellent. He loves
to flake out with his legs stretched way out behind him and either
snooze or watch the families' activities. Sometimes this funny boy
takes a power nap by throwing himself on the floor, moving his head back
and forth with his tongue hanging out. He loves to give kisses and
licks, he is very affectionate.
The following 3 Timmins bunnies arrived
Shadow was adopted November, 2006
He is enjoying his new home and bonding
with bunny friends there. He loves watching sci-fi movies with his
family, but gets a little upset at the commercials interrupting
Shadow is a very sweet little
Netherland Dwarf bunny. He is neutered, about 1 1/2 years old and
was ready for adoption having been at the Timmins Humane Society since
April. He's a tiny little guy, maybe 2-3lbs at the most. He
can be a bit shy at first but settles in very quickly. He enjoys
being cuddled and is very easy going with our young son. He loves
to race around the place and does the cutest little popcorn binkies!
A very kind couple donated the large
cage below to help us house our foster bunnies. Tigger was using
it until he was picked up by his adoptive family and then Shadow made
himself at home there.
Noah was adopted August, 2006
Noah was adopted and went home with his
new family a couple days after arriving here. We hear he is doing
very well and loves the two boys in the family. He waits to greet
them when they come home from school!
Noah is hands down the suckiest bunny
that I have ever met. You walk by him and he drops and presents
for pets. He will push his head right into your hand! He is
a neutered male, approximately 1 year old and was waiting for his
forever home at the Humane Society since June.
Tigger was adopted September,
Tigger was adopted immediately and
picked up by his adoptive family within a couple weeks of arriving.
He will be bonded to their other bunny, also from Rabbit Rescue.
Tigger is a beautiful male Lop that
loves to cuddle. He is neutered and about 2 years old. He
was at the Humane Society since April, before coming into the care of
The following 6 Timmins bunnies arrived
Hopalong was adopted March, 2006
This little guy is really sucky!
He kept watching me come downstairs and rising up to see what I had next
for him. He likes everything, but really enjoyed the dill and
banana. He just loves pets and noserubs. He was very
happy with his time out to run, he loves to binky and do head shakes.
He has incredibly soft fur and the longest tail I've ever seen on a
Joey was adopted April, 2006
This is just a baby bunn. He's
adorable and very cuddly. He really liked my son's toys and kept
nudging them off the couch. This little guy is hilarious! I
guess he likes me, he was circling me! He chins everything and is
very playful. He even did a bunny flop a couple of times.
Prince was adopted May, 2006
This is a big bunn. On his time
out to run he was pretty laid back and preferred just to stretch out.
He really enjoys petting and noserubs. I can't get over those
beautiful eyes! He's not as big as I first thought, probably just
the way he was curled up in his litterbox.
Silver was adopted September,
Sadly, on October 24, 2006 he
crossed the rainbow bridge.
Here's another really little guy.
Very cute, a bit more reserved but definitely interested every time I
dropped a new food into his cage. This little bunn still doesn't
want to be petted and will thump to make his point salient. He
raced around for his time out, not planning to waste a minute of it.
He's got absolutely beautiful colouring.
Dutchy was adopted November,
Now this is a big bunn! She's got
to be about 7lbs. She's a real sucker for a good noserub.
She's quiet and calm in his cage but I took her out and she immediately
wanted to go exploring. She is so affectionate. As soon as
you reach your hand out she drops and presents for petting and
immediately starts grinding her teeth so you know she's enjoying
herself. If you stop, she'll nudge you to continue.
Cotton was adopted June, 2006
Another young bunny, this one is very
curious and quick, and likes to toss their water dish around. This
little guy turned out to be a girl! She is very friendly and will
immediately crawl all over you to check you out. She thoroughly
chins everything to make sure everyone knows its hers!
