Rabbit rescue and Rehab is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization whose primary
goals are to:
Rescue abandoned rabbits and find permanent indoor homes for them.
Educate the public and assist humane societies through publications on rabbit care, phone consulation, and educational sessions upon request
Many people have contacted RRR over the past few months, asking about our annual conference. At our RRR Board meeting this year, I requested that we experiment with holding a series of smaller events in NYC, rather than having a single conference in Westchester. The idea was to make our educational sessions available to the maximum number of bunny parents from all five boroughs. To that end, we are planning a series of lectures and workshops. Of course, I would love to hear from any of you privately if there is a topic you would like to see highlighted for a lecture that is not being addressed below for the future.
Each lecture and hands-on workshop will be approximately one hour, with a follow up Q&A session. Each will be designed to be intimate, with the workshops being "BYOB" (bring your own bunny). Space, therefore, will be limited — so we suggest you register as early as possible. Prior to each workshop, there will be a one-hour opportunity to do some serious bunny-shopping designed to benefit both your bunnies and our rescue efforts.
WORKSHOPS — Dates to be announced
Mary Cotter will offer hands-on, low-stress rabbit-handling workshops based on the principles of applied behavior analysis. You will learn science-based techniques for approaching, handling, lifting, and restraining your rabbit for various procedures, such as temperature-taking, nail-cutting, belly massage, and administering oral medications.
Look forward to seeing many of you!
Claire and her son Alex are a tightly bonded and loving pair. Both have creamy-soft fur and dark brown eyes, but you can easily tell them apart because Claire has a splattering of fawn-biege speckles running down her back. Both are spayed/neutered, and both are young — Alex is around 5 months old, and Claire is probably a year, if that. Both are extremely friendly and gentle, and enjoy being stroked and loved — especially right between the eyes — by humans. Claire is a bit more relaxed about handling than Alex, but both are ultimately cooperative. Alex and Claire are looking for a home where they can stay together and snuggle with each other for the rest of their lives.
