Reasons to adopt:
Offer Animals New Hope - Many pets are victims of circumstance - moving, allergies, lack of forethought & deserve a new home. These bunnies bring you unconditional love & companionship. Be a bunny hero! Adopters are heroes in the battle against pet overpopulation & to their new pet!
Adoption fee's for adopting rabbits vary & will be discussed during the first meeting. We do ask for a minimum donation of $50 to help cover vet costs.
Donations are gladly accepted so that we can continue to provide the best care possible for all rabbits as well as getting them spayed & neutered before going to their new homes as well as any other vet costs they may have.

And who is this lovely lady you may be asking? Her name is Cookie!
Cookie is a beautiful Mini Rex rabbit with a lot of love to give. She is very social and outgoing, really likes people and as you can see by her weight problem, loves her treats too. Cookie is severely overweight and is on a very strict weight loss program. Her obesity is very serious as it is effecting her health and her new home is going to have to know that her diet is going to have to be strictly monitored.
Rabbits in our care, not for adoption.

Buddha was surrendered to us because he developed some very large abscesses under his chin. He thankfully had a successful surgery and most of the abscesses were removed, but there were more in there then was first realized and because of how long he was under anesthetic, they were unable to get all of the abscesses so he was then put on injections of penicillin to hopefully get them under control. Thankfully it has been successful. Buddha is still on injections, but doing extremely well.

Meet Mikah, a very sweet little special needs rabbit who is a permanent foster through AAORR.
Mikah was a transfer from Red Deer at another rescue who did not have space for her and her siblings. Her mother had been surrendered there after being dumped off by a petting zoo that was done business for the season and wanted to get rid of their 25 bunnies. Mikah was then born while with her foster there, while her mother was still nursing a previous litter.
She loves to run and play, she is very social and loves running over for head rubs or to lay next to you. She does not, however, much care for being picked up and tends to squirm so if you're looking for a bun to snuggle on the couch with, Mikah may not be the bun for you. She is very social however and very playful, there are binkies abound with this loving bun!
Mikah began to develop rather severe cataracts at a very young age. They developed very quickly and soon began taking away her vision. We opted to take her to an eye specialist for care and it was decided the best thing for Mikah was to attempt to remove the cataract in her eye to relieve the pressure from the cataract as well as hopefully save her vision.
We did the surgery in her right eye, the one that was worse off, and discovered the cataract had actually opened at the back of it and was releasing debris in to other parts of her eye and causing chronic inflammation, making the risk of glaucoma quite high. The surgery went well and all the debris was removed, she came out of the surgery able to see again. Unfortunately, as her eye healed, the scarring was worse then originally anticipated causing a tightening of the retina and eventually, a tear which took away her vision in that eye once more. She is now blind in her right eye and only able to see shapes and light through her left.
The surgery did dramatically reduce the risk for glaucoma and other problems from developing in her right eye, but she is on eye drops for life in her left eye. Right now she receives a drop of voltaren a day in her left eye and she will need a visit with the eye specialist every 6 months to make sure the pressures remain normal in her eyes and there is no development of glaucoma. Because of her lifelong problems, she will be staying under the rescues name to ensure that her medical needs are always met. However, she is looking for a foster that is willing to commit to doing her drops and caring for her!
