Yeh, I mean I knew they were a bit "off" but I didn't care because we were doing such good things and doing soo good rehoming....Then they sort of stopped taking any in, even though we started having space. Then all but a few adoptable dogs were gone and they breed the dogs, so I turned in my key. Crazy people! *shakes head*

Check out NASAP. They foster all types of animals, including bunnies, in the Edmonton area.

Well I do know about them already. They currently only have two pairs, meanwhile the humane society has 18 last time I checked...And like I said there is currently a huge problem with feral bunnies around a car dealership in my city that neither organization (or the other ones, we have several in Edmonton) is doing anything to address....

Something you might want to consider is the "How to Start an Animal Sanctuary" workshops at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. I am quite impressed by how well the sanctuary is run, and how fast it has grown. Their website is www.bestfriends.org and they also have all kinds of networks for their "No More Homeless Pets" campaign that you might be interested in joining. I went and volunteered there for a week - however the thing I am still hesitant about with them is that I didn't particularly find their rabbit housing all that great. The rabbits were set up more like outdoor animals, and the volunteer sheet that you sign says "rabbits are messy animals!" and I was thinking, no they aren't!

wow... just read thru this thread.  very exciting k&k!  as you prolly know, i have no rescue experience BUT i do have experience starting up a business and i think starting small is def the way to go.  get as simple a system going as possible and get the feel for it before you expand.  especially if you're considering setting up a charity which would require expensive legal & accounting setups since it also costs money to close down organizations if you find it's not working out.  have you heard of http://www.rabbitrescue.ca/aboutus....60;?  i wonder if haviva would offer any advice?

I like work. It fascinates me. I sit and look at it for hours.

There is a member on here that decided to help out the bunnies by being a "bunny representative" at the local humane society. The Bunny Bunch in So. Cal. also does a similar thing where they bing hay and treats to the bunnies that are stuck in the pounds and shelters, and that are not well represented. Also, getting those bunnies spayed and neutered is a great thing to do. I have a friend who is incredibly devoted to helping bunnies, and one of the biggest things she does is get bunnies in the shelters spayed and neutered. The difficulty in this is that if the bunny is in a kill-shelter, you need to make sure that they are going to be considerate of the fact that you are investing time and money into these animals.

Hey, that's a really good idea!! I was thinking of getting in touch with nasap and seeing if I could help develop some educational materials about bunnies for their group, and bring bunnies to adoption showings (I don't think they go now, just dogs and cats). Our humane society (no-kill) usually spays and neuters and I *believe* nasap does spay and neuter *usally*... The problem with nasap is they don't often return phone calls/email messages so it's a bit difficult...

One of the first things you need to do if find and work with an established vet. They can advise and help greatly when you start doing something of this nature.
