During Easter, 80% of rabbits bought in stores are abandoned shortly thereafter. In fact, many never reach their first birthday.
For our April 4th adoption clinic, instead of presenting our rabbits for adoption, we will be offering stuffed toy rabbits for adoption to send a message that rabbits are not to be bought as Easter gifts as they do not make great pets for kids.
For $10.00 you will receive a stuffed toy rabbit with an adoption certificate and on it the name of a rabbit in one of the rescues in the greater Montreal area and a fun little surprise! Some of the stuffed toy rabbits also smell of chocolate! There will larger ones for 15$ and some holding a baby bunny for 12$. Proceeds will go to Quebec Rabbit Rescue.
So come on out to see us! It will be a pleasure to meet you.

Introducing our charming Penelope!
Benjamin got adopted by his foster home! For his foster home the idea of an adoption visit made him realized that the absence of Benjamin would create a huge void in the apartment and in the building…
Indeed he is very popular in the building as the janitor stops to give him his regular pet and so do the neighbours! Benjamin's cage is the apartment! He has his hideouts and areas setup for him all over.
We wish Benjamin and his adopter a happy life together!
Quebec Rabbit Rescue is run
by volunteers and rescues abandoned domestic rabbits. Working with
the animal shelters in the greater Montreal area, our organization
offers bunnies a second chance at finding their forever
We spay and neuter all of our rabbits prior to adoption. We are a no kill rescue and always provide appropriate medical care to all of our adorable rabbits! We do not have a shelter location. Therefore, we rely exclusively on foster homes and volunteers to shelter our bunnies until their adoption.
Every Easter, many unprepared people buy live
rabbits for their children, who often quickly grow tired of them
and animal shelters soon become flooded with rabbits in the
following months. Sadly they can even be dumped outside practically
guaranteeing them an early death where they succumb to injury,
illness, attacks by predators and being hit by cars.
If you are thinking of adopting a rabbit, don't forget that it's a serious and long term commitment and please take the time to educate yourselves on their care by reading about 9 Common Rabbit Myths and our other Resources articles.
