Bunny Profile - Quinn


Quinn is a very special little Mini Rex with a look all his own. He is one of 7 rabbits that were transferred to New Moon Rabbit Rescue from Montreal SPCA on 11 June 2011. He originally came to the SPCA as part of a small seizure. Quinn's ears were eaten by his father at birth but regardless of this he is able to hear and is NOT traumatised by his early start in the world.




Quinn is an amazing sweet little man who absolutely loves to be cuddled and like most buns, will get squirmy when he has had enough. He is a little nervous in new situations, including when first meeting other animals but once he has had a chance to get to know his new friends and new surrounding he should warm up to new experiences quite quickly.  Quinn is active and playful and loves to explore whenever he has a chance.  He is not a big chewer but is very determined and may decided to dig up the corner of your carpet if you have accidently closed his bedroom door on him!




Hay, pellets, greens – He loves them all!  In fact, breakfast is his favourite word!  So it would be best to watch him closely for weigh gain in the future.  Quinn is litter trained with only a few stray poops here and there in his cage.  When he is out running and playing his litter training is perfect!




Quinn is an absolutely wonderful little guy and is very excited to have his forever home.  However, because of his missing ears it is very hard for him to regulate his body temperature, especially during the hot summer months.  Quinn needs a forever home with air conditioning so that he does not overheat.

Quinn is available for adoption.

"Manitoulin Ten" Update - 14 Nov 2011


Alice
When the ten bunnies arrived Alice was showing very obvious signs of respiratory congestion (coughing, sneezing, etc).  She has since that time been under treatment for a lingering but much less severe congestion.  Each time she is treated she improves, but within weeks, symptoms they return.  All treatment options available to her have been given, including a culture & sensitivity test to determine the exact cause of the lingering issue but with little success.  Alice will likely require on and off antibiotic treatment throughout her life.  She will be spayed shortly.

Alice on 17 July 2011


Bonsai
Bonsai is doing very well and is showing no signs of any lingering issue.  He is available for adoption.

Kellogg
On 28 Oct 2011 Kellogg had surgery to trim his molars, which were giving him a great deal of discomfort.  At this time x-rays were also taken when it was discovered some of his molars were loose.  His 28 October surgery and necessary x-rays cost $812.70.  Kellogg will require a second surgery in coming weeks to remove the molars that are of concern.  The estimate for this surgery is almost $1000.

While in the process of writing this update we received a phone call from Kellogg's foster Mum.  Kellogg had suddenly past away.  We are very sadden to learn this and our hearts go out to his foster Mum.  Rest in Peace Kellogg.

A necropsy will be preformed to help determine the cause of death and hopefully give us some answers that will help us treat some of the other Manitoulin Bunnies.

Kellogg on 28 July 2011
Rest in Peace Kellogg
2010 - 14 Nov 2011


Charlie
On 13 Oct 2011 Charlie had an exploratory procedure to determine the origin of a mass in his mouth/throat area. Unfortunately, it was quickly determined to be a large & inoperable tumor. Thank you to everyone that showed him love & thank you to his foster family for making his last hours those of love & happiness. Rest in Peace, Charlie.

(The cost of his medical treatment in his last few days was approximately $617).

Rest In Peace Charlie
2010 - 14 Oct 2011

Thor
Thor has since his arrival been dealing with abscesses.  Some have been reoccurrences from the original abscess that covered his shoulder, leg and chest, while others have occurred independently in his mouth and one on his cheek.  Thor’s medical costs have been considerably lower than expected, as all his abscesses have been able to be dealt with without surgery.

Thor has had 7 abscesses in total.  He remains in good spirits and as happy and delightful to be around as ever.  Thor is (when he has finished his current treatment) available for adoption as a special needs bunny.  It is expected that he will have small abscesses occurring indefinitely.


Thor on 12 November 2011
(at Pet Lover's Expo 2011)


Nougat
Nougat also has some reoccurring/lingering respiratory issues that do not seem to clear up under any treatment and, like Alice, will likely require on and off antibiotic treatment throughout his life.

On 9 Nov 2011, it was determined that Nougat has facial nerve damage affecting the left side of his face, the eye and ear.  He cannot blink and therefore has acquired a significant ulcer on his left eye.  He is currently receiving antibiotic eye ointment to clear up the existing ulcer.  Long-term, he will require a non-medicated gel applied to his eye for lubrication and likely also antibiotic eye ointment as required throughout his life.  


UPDATE:


Yesterday (16 Nov '11) Nougat had an emergency vet appt. He had developed sudden & severe head tilt (w/associated impairments incl. swollen iris & loss of balance) & he was becoming increasingly congested. He is now being treated for a head/brain abscess, e.cuniculi, eye ulcers & severe respiratory distress (w/nebulizer) in hopes that some or all treatments will help him.

He is fighting for his life. Please keep Nougat in your thoughts.



UPDATE: (23 Nov 2011)


Our thoughts are with Nougat tonight.  Sadly, no treatments were helping or easing any of his many health issues and he was continuing to deteriorate by the day.  He passed away this afternoon surrounded by those who cared for him.  He will be missed.  Rest In Peace Nougat.


A necropsy will be preformed to help determine the true cause of all of Nougat's health issues and hopefully give us some answers that will help us treat some of the other Manitoulin Bunnies.

Nougat on 31 Oct 2011
Rest in Peace Nougat
2010 - 23 Nov 2011


Zinka
Zinka had a small abscess removed from her stomach at the time of her spay.  She has at this time had no reoccurrences or new abscesses.  Zinka began sneezing again and a culture & sensitivity test was done.  She is now on another extended course of antibiotics.  Approximate cost of appointment & tests - $120.

Zinka on 29 October 2011


Radar
Radar has been getting a watery eye occasionally with no apparent cause, as determined by his veterinarian.  He is receiving antibiotic eye drops in the hopes of clearing it up.

Radar - August 2011


Fozzie
Fozzie had a small abscess removed from his shoulder at the time of his neuter.  He now has another small abscess on the other shoulder.  He will be having this abscess removed on 16 Nov 2011.

Fozzie on 30 Sept 2011

Edison
Edison recovered quickly with his original treatment and was adopted on 29 July 2011.

SO FAR, THE MANITOULIN TEN HAVE COST ALMOST $4500.  We expect this to number to exceed $8000 before these beautiful bunnies are all adoptable and may reach $10,000 before they find their forever homes.

Bunny Profile - Venus & Athena


Venus and Athena arrived on 22 October 2011.  These beautiful little sisters are approx 4-5 months of age and at this time are still getting along very well.
Venus & Athena on 22 October 2011

Venus, the smaller of the two girls is the cuddle bug. She is cautious at first and not that adventurous until she gets comfortable with you in the room. She seems like a typical little sitter who wants to be with someone (bunny or human) at all times. She is quite the jumper too. She loves having room to run and will binky almost uncontrollably the whole time she's out. She seems grateful for everything she gets and won't hesitate to give you kisses.

She is playful and loves to run around showing off how big her binkies can be.  Venus also loves to throw her toys and will even try to play catch with her human friends.


Pictures of Venus from 1 November 2011


She is very trusting and grateful for all the love and attention she can get.  She wants nothing more than to give you her love and is hoping to find the family of her dreams very soon.

Athena is the adventurer! She is first to explore the room and binky off the couch. She seems very comfortable in almost any situation and enjoys jumping in and out of the cage to sprint around the room. She is quite the jumper also. She loves having room to run and will binky almost uncontrollably the whole time she's out. She seems grateful for everything she gets.


Pictures of Athena from 1 November 2011


Just like her little sister, she loves to throw her toys but as far as Athena is concerned – The louder the better!  She seems to be quite connected to those around her and is already starting to understand the meaning of no.  Athena will stretch out and listen to all your troubles, she loves being spoken to.  I guess she has those big ears for a reason!

Both girls are working very hard to learn the litter training but being so young, they haven’t got it all figured out yet.  They will be having their spays within the next month and this should help them greatly. 

Currently, Venus and Athena are a bonded pair but because of their age this may have to change before they are able to be spayed.  We always make every effort to keep bonded pairs together but unfortunately for their own health and safety we have no choice but to separate them.

They are scheduled for their spays on 23 November 2011 and will be available for adoption after they have had time to recover.

Bunny Profile - Zinka





Zinka is a beautiful little Netherland Dwarf. She is one of 10 rabbits that came to New Moon Rabbit Rescue on 27 June 2011 as part of a massive SPCA seizure of 200+ rabbits in the Manitoulin Island area.

Zinka, as well as the other nine rabbits from the seizure were all treated for Pasteurella and other respiratory issues due to their pasteurella infections as well as several other health issues. Zinka responded very well to her treatment and made an excellent recovery.  Zinka also had a small abscess removed at the time of her spay and is due for a recheck with her Doctor to make sure everything is doing well.

She is available for adoption.

Zinka is curious, sweet and fearless.  She loves to investigate and explore what’s going on around her.  She likes to be held and pet and doesn’t mind being picked up, carried around but she would often rather explore and play on her own four feet.  Zinka is not fond of being in her cage and can be a bit nervous when you are trying to let her out for a play.  However once she is out and about all the nervousness slips away.  She loves the company of her foster family.





When out and playing she does not pay much attention to baseboards, cords or other things that bunnies commonly like to nibble on.  She would much rather have cereal boxes to chew on and play in while she is exploring and zipping about!

Zinka is doing very well with her litter training.  Although it is not perfect quite yet, the only accidents she has are in her cage and next to the box.  She is not afraid of dogs or cats and if her furry friends are calm and accepting of her, she will sit with them or even on them if the situation calls for it!





Zinka is such a happy little girl.  She has left all her bad memories behind her and enjoys life to the fullest.

Bunny Profile - Fozzie






Fozzie is a cute little chocolate coloured Netherland Dwarf. He is one of 10 rabbits that came to New Moon Rabbit Rescue on 27 June 2011 as part of a massive SPCA seizure of 200+ rabbits in the Manitoulin Island area.

Fozzie, as well as the other nine rabbits from the seizure were all treated for Pasteurella and other respiratory issues due to their pasteurella infections as well as several other health issues. Fozzie responded very quickly to his treatment and made an excellent recovery.  Fozzie also had a small abscess removed at the time of his neuter and is due for a recheck with his Doctor to make sure everything is doing well.


Fozzie snuggling down for some pets on 20 August 2011

Fozzie is available for adoption.

Fozzie is a wonderful little man. He is curious and friendly and is looking for a forever home so he can continue with his new and wonderful life.

A few months ago Fozzie was one of several bunnies that had the pleasure of taking a trip in to the city to tape a segment for a local morning show.  He was a joy to be around and was the calmest and most well behaved bunny that has ever been in this situation.  He played constantly and was saying hello to anyone he could meet.  Fozzie is going to make someone very happy!

He is doing well with his litter training and like most buns enjoys stretching out and having a nap in his litter box. He likes to investigate far and wide and absolutely loves his run time.  He never wants it to end. 

Fozzie has grown to be healthy and happy and transformed into a beautiful loving little boy.  He is a far cry from the sad and sick bunny that arrived months ago.  The terrible sun bleaching in his coat has finally grown out and he has left his past behind.


Out of a play!

Bunny Profile - Radar






Radar is a cute little agouti Netherland Dwarf. He is one of 10 rabbits that came to New Moon Rabbit Rescue on 27 June 2011 as part of a massive SPCA seizure of 200+ rabbits in the Manitoulin Island area.

Radar, as well as the other nine rabbits from the seizure were all treated for Pasteurella and other respiratory issues due to their pasteurella infections as well as several other health issues.  Radar responded very quickly to his treatment and made a excellent recovery.

Radar is currently available for adoption.




Radar is a very sweet and happy bunny.  He is social and enjoys the quiet and calm company of others.  Radar likes to play “hide and seek” and has made squeezing in to small spaces an art.  He is not terribly interested in toys and would rather run around hopping and binkying.  He is not a big chewer but does tend to enjoy a good nibble when he has found a good place to hide.  Radar might very much like some cardboard tunnels and playhouses to keep him busy. 

Radar loves his freedom and chance at a real life.  He is enjoying his foster family and lets them know by giving lots of kisses.  He is doing well with the cats and may be interested in someday having a bunny friend to play with.  Radar is doing very well with his litter training and does not have any accidents outside his cage.

Bunny Profile - Eric





On 1 August 2009, at only 4 weeks old, Eric arrived with his nine brothers and sisters after being rescued from an burrow underneath a families front deck. Many of his brothers and sisters have already found their forever homes while Eric still waits. Eric is a gorgeous young boy with a pure white coat and blue/gray points. He also has red eyes which may be the very reason he still waits for a home. Many people find red eyes to be unattractive or even disturbing. Leaving some of the most affectionate and loving rabbits waiting for homes for far too long.


In the words of his current foster mum;

“Eric is still somewhat nervous in general. For the most part when he is laid back and relaxing he can be bit standoffish. I don’t think it’s so much that he’s shy, it’s more like he’s his own man and just not a cuddle bunny. He’ll accept a head rub on his own terms when he’s ready, and not a minute before!! Eric is quite the explorer and loves checking out his area after things have been changed around, or inspecting rooms outside his area.

There were only a couple of problems with him chewing corners in the beginning, but he quickly caught on that the cardboard and wood structures and toys were much better. He does very well free range 24/7. I can’t really say he has any bad habits and he has almost perfect litter habits, leaving only a few “cocoa puffs” right outside his litter boxes.

He likes to stretch his legs every now and then with a good bunny 500 run, then follow it up with a nice flop. When allowed he loves to laze the day away under the bed. He’ll chew his way through grass balls, and nibble to his heart’s content on grass mats (especially when treats are hidden in the weave). Eric doesn’t like being picked up, or getting head/body rubs for too long! (but did enjoy cuddles with a previous foster) And he’s not a connoisseur of horror movies...”

Bunny Profile - Penny


Penny is a sweet and spunky Lop mix looking for her forever home where she will be treated with the love and kindness she has always dreamt of.  She was originally found as a stray in the Brittania area of Ottawa by the water’s edge in the dead of winter.  With her feet almost frozen to the ice, much of the hair missing from her legs and the tips of her ears already frost bitten, Penny didn’t have much time left.  She was rescued by a very kind couple, rehabiltated and given all the kindness they could give.  Unfortunately, Penny was far too rambuctious and mischievous for the couple and on 12 July 2010, she came to New Moon.




Despite her ordeal and with only the reminder of her past being a small bit of one of her ears lost to the frost bite she started over again.  Penny is extremely friendly, affectionate and not nervous at all.  She is still very rambunctious and loves to chew so her new family will have to make sure to give her constructive ways to satify her chewing and make sure to rabbit proof her area very well.  Penny is not fond of cages at all and would be happiest as a free range or partially free range bunny with a big cage.  She is also a bit of a digger but sadly we believe a lot of this behaviour comes from being lonely and without a true family and secure home.  She just needs a forever home so badly.

Penny would likely be fine with other animals or with a submissive male bunny (She a dominant lady!).  She loves to make noise and loves to throw anything that she can.  We do not know much more about what toys she likes or her quirks as she has just come back to stay with one of our board members after being removed from her foster’s care.  Penny needs to find a home that will give her the love and understanding that she has never had.  We fear that because of her outgoing personalty and her quirks she may be looking for a home much longer than she already has and yet most of her concerns are bred be not having a stable loving stress free enviroment in the first place.



If you are interested in giving Penny a chance at a real life (or any other New Moon Rabbit Rescue rabbit) please visit our website at www.newmoonrabbitrescue.ca and fill out an Adoption Application.

Bunny Profile - Stevie & Jazzy


Jazzy is a 'cute as buttons' little fawn dwarf mix & Stevie is her handsome sandy coloured boyfriend.  They arrived on 16 July 2011. They were surrendered to New Moon because the family were moving out of country and could not take them with them.

Some of you may remember Stevie from when he was with New Moon as a baby. He is one of the 10 babies rescued from an outdoor burrow on 1 August 2009.




Stevie is a big explorer with a mind of his own.  He does like to cuddle and enjoys attention but he prefers to come to you when he wants his pets and cuddle time.  Stevie is very outgoing and will help you make sure your rabbit proofing is up to his standards!


Jazzy is more timid than Stevie but is very loveable and loves to be pet most of the time.  Jazzy like to run and play but she prefers to have a carpeted area rather than tile or hardwood as she is not comfortable on these surfaces.

Stevie and Jazzy are both very well litter trained.  They love to play with their toys and would like a home with lots of room to play!  Because they are a bonded pair it would be preferred that they were living in a free range or partially free range home.




Stevie & Jazzy are awaiting adoption.

If you are interested in adopting Stevie & Jazzy or any other New Moon Rabbit Rescue rabbit please visit our website at www.newmoonrabbitrescue.ca and fill out an Adoption Application.

Rabbit Dental Health




Rabbit dental health is extremely important and essential to their overall well-being. Because rabbit teeth are constantly growing, they can be prone to issues of both the incisors and the molars, especially if fed improper diets. Hay is absolutely essential in maintaining rabbit dental health!




Maloccluded incisors can have a few different causes. Genetic predisposition (particularly dwarf breeds, small lops and lionheads, who have characteristically round, short faces), tooth fracture and habitual cage bar pulling are some common causes. If the malocclusion is mild and your rabbit is not overly stressed by the procedure, your vet will likely recommend regular tooth filings. Filing with a Dremel is typically preferable to clippers that can easily crack or break off the teeth, complicating the issue and possibility even necessitating a surgical procedure.

If severe and/or if your rabbit is young and/or if he finds the frequent procedures very stressful, your vet may recommend incisor removal for a more permanent solution. However, even some severe malocclusions can be corrected with time, patience and a veterinarian experienced in rabbit dentistry. Please check your rabbit’s teeth frequently for signs of overgrowing or “splaying” of the incisors.

Molar “spurs” or “points” are also common in the rabbit breeds listed above and in those without a proper diet consisting of unlimited timothy, mixed grass or similar hay (no alfalfa). These spurs can point either towards the cheek or the tongue and cause severe pain to the rabbit. Because a rabbit’s molars are far back in the mouth and cannot be seen without the aid of special medical tools, molar spurs can be harder to detect in early stages.

Have your vet check your rabbit’s molars at his yearly check-up. Luckily, there are a few signs to watch for between check-ups:

• Dropping food

• Drooling

• Unwillingness to eat SOME types of food without signs of GI disturbances or appetite loss

• Tearing of one eye in particular, but could involve both



Undetected/untreated molar spurs can lead sores and infections in the mouth and also to extremely serious medical issues, such as molar root infections and abscesses of the jaw and behind the eye (retrobulbar abscess).

Jagger's teeth issues were caused by genetic misalignment.
Please Note: This is a common procedure and Jagger is not in any distress.

Bunny Profile - Freddie



Meet Freddie!! He came to New Moon after being found as a stray. He is a beautiful Mini Rex.
We do not know exactly how old Freddie is but we know he is young. Sadly, he is most likely an "Easter Bunny" that was discarded when the novelty wore off.

Freddie is a very affectionate little boy who's only concern is to get attention. His loves to be pet and talked to and seems to be good at being held and carried. He has lots of energy to burn and wants nothing more than to spend his whole day running about He is working on his litter training but this will most likely come quite quickly once he has had his neuter.

He will be available for adoption as soon as he has had his neuter which is scheduled for mid July!

If you are interested in adopting Freddie or any other New Moon Rabbit Rescue rabbit please visit our website at www.newmoonrabbitrescue.ca and fill out an Adoption Application.

Help Us Help Them!!

We are currently assisting the Ontario SPCA Sudbury and District Branch in rehoming 200 rabbits (Dwarfs and Lops) that have recently been removed from a neglectful situation. (For more information, please read the official Press Release)




Thank you to those who have helped by committing themselves to fostering. Your generousity, compassion and support is overwhelming. Because of your help we are able to take in 9 rabbits. The response to our plea was higher than this but unfortunately we are unable to stretch New Moon's finances any further.

All 9 rabbits will be health checked, spayed/neutered and receive medical care by New Moon Rabbit Rescue. These costs are expected to exceed $2500. We are in great need of donations to help cover these costs.

As most are aware we also recently helped out the Montreal SPCA with their overwhelming amount of rabbits by taking in 7 rabbits whose medical cost have totaled over $1600 to date.

To make a donation please visit www.newmoonrabbitrescue.ca - You can make a secure donation through the Canada Helps link or Paypal link found on the left side of the homepage.

Whether it is small or large everything makes a difference!

Unfortunately because of the current Canada Post strike we have been unable to receive donations by mail. However if you choose to send a donation by mail once the strike has ended, please send cheque or money order to: New Moon Rabbit Rescue, P.O. Box 24, North Gower ON K0A 2T0 - All donations over $10 will receive a tax receipt



On behalf of all rescues involved, thank you to Martin Mills for the donations of a bag of rabbit food for each rescued rabbit!

Our thanks also go to Bourne Free Farms for their donation of 35 bags of hay for the rabbits.

Once again we would like to thank everyone for your support. We could not do this without you!


You are all our BUNNY HEROES!

Bunny Profile - Perline







Perline is a beautiful and tiny Mini Rex. She is one of 7 rabbits that were transferred to New Moon Rabbit Rescue from Montreal SPCA on 11 June 2011. She was originally brought to the SPCA on 12 March 2011 as an owner surrender.

Perline is young, born in Sept 2010. We chose sweet Perline to come to New Moon because she was not coping well with shelter life. She was showing aggression to the staff and to make matters worse is an unspayed female right in the middle of adolescence! In that situation she didn't stand a chance of adoption. However since she has been here she has been a sweet heart and spend most of her time begging for attention. Once she has had her spay which is scheduled for 24 June 2011 we are more than confident that these issues will no longer be any concern.




Perline is very playful. She loves her run time and loves to interact with you inside and outside of her cage. She loves to explore and binky and she chins absolutely everything she can find - even you! She loves her hay and greens but is less impressed with her pellets and would prefer to avoid them all together.

She is working on her litter training but she needs her spay before she will be able to figure this out but she is young and has lots of time for boring things like that!!




If you are interested in adopting Perline or any other New Moon Rabbit Rescue rabbit please visit our website at www.newmoonrabbitrescue.ca and fill out an Adoption Application.



Bunny Profile - Orianne






Orianne is one of 7 rabbits that were transferred to New Moon Rabbit Rescue from Montreal SPCA on 11 June 2011. She was originally came to the SPCA on 14 November 2010 as an owner surrender.




Orianne was born in May 2008. She has a beautiful harlequin colouring, soft coat, adorable ears and a wonderful personality to match. She is active and inquisitive and eager to find her new home. She is not nervous and loves getting pets. Orianne was living free range in her previous foster home in Montreal and is therefore completely litter trained. She loves her hay and loves her food but is still looking for her perfect toys.

Bunny Profile - Quinn







Quinn is a very special little Mini Rex with a look all his own. He is one of 7 rabbits that were transferred to New Moon Rabbit Rescue from Montreal SPCA on 11 June 2011. He originally came to the SPCA as part of a small seizure.

Quinn is an amazing sweet little man who absolutely loves to be cuddled, he just wants love and attention. He is a little nervous in new situations, including when first meeting other animals but we have all confidence that once he settle into his new home - He will make himself right at home.




His litter training is getting better be once he has had his neuter it will be much easier for him to figure out. Quinn loves playing and very much enjoys to push his new toy ball around. He is very active and is not afraid to take on a staircase or two to get where he wants to go. Quinn is an excellent hay eater which is always a bonus.

Quinn will be available for adoption as soon as he has had a chance to recover from his neuter. He is scheduled for surgery on 23 June 2011.

Bunny Profile - Guimauve






Guimauve is and young rambunctious little male Holland Lop. He is one of 7 rabbits that were transferred to New Moon Rabbit Rescue from Montreal SPCA on 11 June 2011. He was originally found as a stray rabbit left in his cage and was brought to the SPCA.


Words cannot describe how sweet this little man is! He has so much personality and is just waiting to be the apple of someones eye!

Guimauve is very friendly and not at all nervous. He is not afraid of cats or dogs but would really like to get their attention all the time. He enjoys his hay very much and is good at being picked up and held. Guimauve would make a wonderful rabbit for someone who is only just finding out how wonderful rabbits can be... Guimauve could steal the heart of anyone.
