Help! Bunny’s Best Bites (BBB) needs new leadership!

Our Rabbit Advocates Bunny’s Best Bites (BBB) Program needs one or more volunteer coordinators to take over the management duties to ensure that hundreds of rabbits continue to get their nutritious and delicious BBB hay each month.  We are also in search of a new hay-packing location. Please click here to learn more about how you can participate in this important fundraiser for the RA Medical Fund.

Eloise’s gofundme page

Eloise' GoFundMe page

Eloise is a sweet and loving free-roaming rabbit with severe but treatable dental issues. Her vet bills surpass what the medical fund can cover, and we appreciate any help you give to help this special girl.

Update: Thanks to your generosity, Eloise has been able to start the treatments needed to make her feel better. Please continue to help in the effort to treat Eloise’s dental issues.

Rabbit Advocates General Meeting

Sunday, February 21, 3:30 – 5:30 pm at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington
1100 NE 192nd Ave., Vancouver, WA

February focus: Our featured guest speaker will be Bob Sherman, a familiar and welcome face to many long-time Rabbit Advocates in Portland; Bob is now up to his rabbit ears with volunteer activities at the Kelowna Rabbit Advocates Society in British Columbia.  Bob will provide an educational presentation on Bunny Basics.  There will be a vegetarian potluck, and everyone is invited to bring a dish. All bunnies are welcome, and the public is invited.

The meeting is held in the Education Room. Access by side entrance only. At our regular monthly meetings you can meet with other “rabbit people” and bring your rabbit-related questions for a group question and answer session. If you attend with rabbits, please bring bunnies in carriers.
