Other Pets at Shelter...
Tonya arrived at New Moon on 9 August 2012 as part of an owner surrender of 6 baby bunnies. She was born on 10 June 2012. Tonya is spayed and available for adoption.
Tonya is still pretty timid but very inquisitive. She may initially run when someone enters her room but curiousity quickly gets the best of her and she will venture back out to see what’s going on.
Tonya is gentle and much less assertive than some of her littermates. She is a little lady and can be a bit shy, preferring to come to you on her own terms. Though when she is stretched out she would stay still while you pet her. Tonya is still working on her litter training. She just needs to learn not let her bum hang out of the litter box when she pees but she always pees inside her cage. Though she does let some poop go outside of her cage. Tonya rarely gets in trouble. She doesn't chew much and tends to be chill and relax. At the same time, she can also be pretty fun to watch as she does her binkies and sprints around a room.
Tonya can walk on hardwood they do prefer carpet and will spend hours sprinting, binkying, and checking out every nook and cranny. She won’t forget about you either and will often visit by coming over and hoping onto your lap to make sure you are paying attention to them. Tonya has also taken quite a liking to sea grass toys and will spend many an afternoon cozied up quietly nibbling on her sea grass basket.
Tonya would be great with a bonded friend but is hoping for one that is not too assertive with her as she scares easily when being bossed around by another bunny.
Rescue Group Info...
New Moon Rabbit Rescue was formed in September 2006 with one main goal: to provide unwanted, abandoned, neglected, or abused domestic rabbits with a second chance at human love and appropriate care.
We are a "no-kill" organization dedicated to providing care for rescued domestic rabbits. All rabbits remain in foster homes until such time as they are adopted to loving, caring homes.
All of New Moon's rabbits are in foster care at this time. If you are interested in meeting a particular rabbit you must fill out an adoption application. Upon approval a meeting with the foster home will be arranged.
All rabbits that come into the care of New Moon Rabbit Rescue are spayed or neutered, health checked and if necessary, fully rehabilitated before adoption. Potential adopters are thoroughly screened to ensure that the rabbits will be entering safe and happy environments.
Every potential adopter must fill out an application, either online or by printing and filling out the PDF document. It can be faxed to 613-489-0487. You will receive a phone call within a few days to discuss your application. Please review our adoption contract, which you will required to sign upon picking up your new rabbit. Please note that all adopters must be approved before visiting the rabbits.
Our adoption policies state that we do not adopt to children, however we do adopt to families with children in which children may aid parents in caring for the rabbit. New Moon rabbits are adopted out as house pets only and are not to be housed outdoors. There will be NO exceptions to either of these strict policies.
Our adoption fees are $85 for a single rabbit and $130 for an already bonded pair. All adoption fees are non-refundable, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the rabbits of New Moon. We are wiling to adopt outside of our area, but you must be willing to pick up your new friend.
We serve Ottawa, Ontario and the surrounding areas of Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. We have on occasion adopted as far away as the US. All adopters must be willing to pick up their new friend(s)
